Intimate, more personal weddings have gained some popularity in the last few years, which makes it easier to utilize smaller venues and add extra details to your ceremony and reception. The ultimate intimate wedding venue is the backyard! Today we’re sharing 9 ideas for your boho backyard wedding.
Choosing Your Backyard Space
Once you decide you want to have an intimate backyard wedding, start thinking about whose backyard you’re going to host it in. If your current home isn’t large enough to host a wedding, look to family or friends who may be able to open their homes to your wedding guests. A boho backyard wedding doesn’t have to be contained to a backyard, which opens up the doors for where you can host. Just make sure there is enough space for your guests to eat and mingle, either indoors or out. Food and a few tables inside and some long tables in the backyard with a space for dancing the night away would be perfect for your boho backyard wedding.
Beautiful Boho Details
A backyard wedding is the perfect type of wedding to share your love of boho details. Lots of colors, florals and fun details come into play with a boho backyard wedding.
When deciding on flowers, choose stems with pops of color and incorporate lots of greenery. Use colorful, vintage vessels for your florals to be displayed in on your tables – amber, teal or green glass will look stunning with your arrangements. If you have a large tree, create a gorgeous boho floral display with flowers in glass bottles hanging at varying lengths from the tree. Not only will it add to the decor, it’s the perfect backdrop for photos.
One trendy detail you can include in your boho backyard wedding is macrame. Because it’s growing in popularity, you can find pieces everywhere or buy kits to make your own. From a boho macrame backdrop for your ceremony to macrame table runners and plant hangers, it’s the ultimate boho detail for your wedding right now.
Have Fun With Signage
Because your wedding is intimate and less formal, you can have a lot of fun with your details – like the signage. Have a custom flag with your names and wedding date made to fly on the day of your wedding. or make a big custom banner to hang from the trees to use in photos. Not only is it the perfect backdrop for your own photos, your guests will love snapping selfies in front of it as well.
If you’re hosting a bar at your backyard wedding, you can have fun with signage for your drinks, too. A large chalkboard with hand lettering is perfect for your boho wedding and it’s a fun way to include some more graphics into your day and make it more personal.
If you’re hoping to have a small wedding with just your closest friends and family and still share your love of vintage and color, a boho backyard wedding is the perfect solution.
