If you plan to make a flowery or whimsical garden, the basic things you need to search for are flowers, chair, tables, and corner tables. Mostly, couples choose vintage white furniture, but you can choose wooden based color furniture too, as they would prove to be perfect items for your beautiful backyard wedding. Don’t forget to use colorful flowers, as they’d aid in adding a touch of beauty. As for the decoration, you can use the branches of a tree in your backyard to hang some photos or lamps or even lampions.

For the wedding menu, you can opt for light meals and drinks to be served with one main course, especially if you’re hosting a half-day wedding. You can also add lemonade and other refreshing drinks to the list if the wedding is being held in summer. But if you plan to hold the wedding late into the night, you can serve a variety of dishes, ranging from appetizers, main course, and dessert. For the decoration, you can arrange a few wonderful food corners/ stalls, instead of laying the food on a dining table.
