Due to the world being turned upside down, we had to cancel our wedding… like many brides, I had to pivot. We had recently bought our first home and spent so much time working on it, so we decided to have our wedding in our backyard. Our garage turned into Studio 54 with an amazing disco ball installation, 80’s furniture, checkered floor, and a chic curated joint bar for our guests (which was a real hit of the night!).
Emily and Travis had an epic DIY Viking wedding for the ages, all in their backyard. Wait till you see their medieval decor and their guests in costume!
We got married at sunset, on Friday the 13th, in our backyard. It was a pagan handfasting ceremony that was heavily influenced by our personal interests. We are both gender non-conforming, so we removed all gendered language/traditions.
I’m working on the wedding invitations for my 2022 wedding, and all informal wedding invitation wording examples I’m finding online feel like they’re from the before-times. I don’t need to talk about the pandemic specifically on my invitations, but it feels weird not to acknowledge that weddings are different now than they used to be. I’m having a casual microwedding in my backyard, and I know I’m not the only one who’s struggling with informal, casual, but also celebratory wedding invitation wording. Help??
Wondering if you can make a backyard wedding look lush and elegant? Caroline and Price (and their flower-wearing pooch!) are here to show you how it’s done…
Historically, parents paying for a wedding has ugly cultural baggage. For this reason, I am against the idea of anyone’s parents being obliged or asked to pay for their children’s wedding.
