If you’re looking for a fun and intimate wedding reception with a flavorful menu and sweet details, this theme is for you. Today we’re sharing 9 ideas for a backyard fiesta wedding that’s the perfect way to celebrate your marriage.
Some couples want a smaller party to celebrate their marriage, and they want to celebrate in a space that means something special to them. A backyard fiesta wedding accommodates both of those desires and has the perfect cozy and colorful feel for celebrating exchanged vows.
When looking for the perfect space to host your wedding, choose a place that has special sentiments. Maybe it’s the backyard at one of your parents’ homes or at the home you share together. When it’s a place you know, your day will be that much less stressful because you’re already comfortable in the space and it’s familiar to you.
Your backyard fiesta wedding will be the perfect place to celebrate with the ones you love!
A Fiesta Inspired Color Palette
A fiesta wedding deserves a bright and fun color palette to match! Include lots of colors – like bright orange, pink and yellow, guacamole green and burnt red.
Bring color to your wedding with florals. Wildflower arrangements down the center of the table are beautiful and easy to create yourself. Put a few floral stems in concrete or ceramic vases, then add in some greenery and succulents to create a tablescape that’s perfect for a fiesta.
Food & Drink for a Backyard Fiesta
A backyard fiesta wedding is nothing without the perfect food and drink! Street tacos and Moscow mules in copper mugs are the perfect fare for this wedding day.
Let guests enjoy chips and salsa, queso a guacamole as they wait for dinner to begin, then bring in a few food trucks that serve street tacos or other Mexican food choices. Your guests will love being able to customize their dinner, and it adds an extra element of fun to your day.
Fill ice buckets with colorful Jarritos sodas for guests to sip on, and once dinner is over bring out buckets of popsicles as a sweet treat.
Your backyard wedding will be a hit with fun food choices for your guests to enjoy!
The Details Make the Day
As always, it’s the extra details that make the wedding day so special for guests – the little things you include that make your guests feel like you went above and beyond.
Signage is one detail that always adds fun to a party. Whether they’re playful or serve a purpose, including signs at your reception is a fun way to decorate your reception. A handcrafted ‘Taco ‘Bout a Party’ sign is the perfect way to greet guests as they arrive, while hand-painted wooden signs for different areas for your reception serve a purpose and look great with your party decor.
The details make the day – your guests will be in awe of your intimate backyard fiesta and will love celebrating your special day with you.
