35 Backyard Wedding Ideas to Make Your Summer Wedding as Instagrammable as Possible

Even three years ago it wasn’t necessarily the ~thing~ to say “I do” at home, but during the early days of the pandemic, when we had to limit indoor guests to 50 people (remember that?) everything changed. Backyard weddings are finally getting the attention they deserve, and tbh, we’re here for the trend. A backyard bash can be super chic when done right, and, thanks to so many couples and vendors posting their outdoor wedding creations on the main grid, it’s clear that they’re hotter than ever this wedding szn.

Not only can you personalize just about every detail with a backyard wedding—like framed photos hanging from tree branches or having your pup stand in as the ring bearer—but you won’t be held down by strict venue rules on everything from lighting and decor to catering and booze, which means…FREEDOM! Pick any date, have any number of guests, hand select your vendors, whatever. you. want. Depending on the size of your backyard—or your neighbor’s yard, parents’ yard, or even your neighbor’s parents’ yard—you could have an intimate wedding with an elaborate tablescape or host the grand garden fête of your Bridgerton-obsessed dreams.
