Planning a Backyard Wedding: This Bride-to-Be is Sharing Her Experience

The staff of Wedlink Media is booming with brides-to-be, as well as a couple of newlyweds! Working in an industry where they’re in-the-know on all things weddings has its advantages when it comes to planning the big day. In this video, Wedlink Media’s Office Manager, Madison, tells all about planning a backyard wedding. She gives her insight into the extra logistics required to pull off a flawless event at your own home.

Backyard weddings can be special when the venue is a significant place for the couple. Madison and her high school sweetheart Chase chose the backyard of her childhood home because of the sentimental value it holds for them. While Madison thought choosing a backyard venue would make the planning process a breeze because she would be able to control everything, this wasn’t exactly the case. At-home weddings bring up many logistical questions brides might not typically think about. Finding accommodations for the catering team and bringing in lighting were some areas that Madison had to navigate before her big day. Planning a backyard wedding can be a bigger production than it appears from the outside, but in the end, any bride who chooses a backyard as their venue will be sure to have a magical event to remember.
