Charming Ideas for an Intimate Backyard Wedding

Pinterest is a Bride’s best friend for wedding planning. Themed boards are great for organizing ideas and narrowing plans down. If you don’t already have a “Backyard Wedding” board, we highly recommend you make one. A backyard wedding is ideal for those looking for an intimate ceremony on a reasonable budget. With the ideas I’ve pinned below, you can trasnform your backyard into a romantic, elegant venue. Take these ideas, pin them, and make them your own for your special day! My personal favorite? The memory gallery wall on a tree trunk! So beautiful.
