Rustic Theme

When it is your backyard, you have to keep a rustic old world feel as the wedding theme. Given that there is going to be a lot of nature around, it will be best to enhance those with lights or with superb entwining decor strings. Do not attempt to create a theme that is anti-nature for backyard weddings.

Wild Decor

We suggest going in for flower decorations for the entrance arch as well as ample use of flowers in the centerpieces. Use natural branches, twigs and wild blooms in crystal vases. Do not burn a fortune for a grand centerpiece. Backyard wedding ideas always mean bring off track yet simple.

Wedding Dress

You can go the quirky way here. Instead of donning the traditional dress, pick one that reflects the floral theme and wild you. Go in for maxi dresses. Your groom can wear a summer jacket with a bright colored bow.
