Having an intimate wedding is the first choice for some brides, and for others, it’s something that the times dictate. For Brooke and Tyler, a pandemic altered their original plans, but their sweet wedding ended up being so beautiful! This adorable event is filled with DIY backyard wedding ideas for the couple who wants a small wedding.

DIY Backyard Wedding Ideas

Yes, sometimes plans change, but we need to make the best of it, and that is exactly what this cute couple did. Their day still had so many well thought out backyard wedding ideas as they got married at Tyler’s house. After their ceremony, they planted a tree that they are going to decorate each Christmas.

Also, a few years ago, Brooke lost her best friend in a car accident, and a small photo of her was placed on the bouquet. This couple not only is in love, but their sentimental touches added so much to their backyard wedding. Listen to what Brooke had to say about their big day.

What plans did you have to change?

We needed to find a different spot for the ceremony because our original venue was far too big for just our immediate family. We cut back on all of the decorations and flowers. Tyler’s parents offered to cook the food so we did not have to cater for 10 people.

Brooke’s best friend would have been her maid of honor, so she carried her photo on her bouquet.

Why did you decide to proceed with your backyard wedding?

The virus had already ruined a lot of things going on in our lives. We both were unable to work, and we were not able to go out anywhere or do anything. We decided that we were not going to allow the virus to take away the happiest day of our lives.

“No matter how big or small your wedding is, it is the most magical day of your life.”

 

How did your vendors react to the changes?

The owner of our venue allowed us to reschedule for another day so we could host our reception with all of our family and friends there. Our caterer was super nice and allowed us to postpone until our reception as well.

What precautions did you take with the pandemic?

We did practice social distancing as much as we could before we were going to take photos. Our backyard wedding was on a Facebook live stream so all of our family and friends could watch.

There are so many cute backyard wedding ideas, including a lovely ring box. 

What were the pros and cons of a smaller wedding?

I was very happy with the smaller ceremony because it was all immediate family and we could all just sit around the fire later that night and hang out. Although, I was upset nobody else could attend – that is why we are having the reception another time.

Did you learn anything from this experience?

I learned that you don’t need a big fancy wedding to feel like a princess. No matter how big or small your wedding is, it is the most magical day of your life.

What are you doing about your honeymoon?

We are postponing our honeymoon until the virus is completely gone. We decided that while we are waiting for that we could save more money and have more fun whenever we go.
