Organizing a wedding at home might mean that you have to take care of almost everything on your own, but it also means that you get to be as creative as you want. Use this chance wisely and don’t hold back. These useful tips will help you organise the most memorable wedding at home.
Utilize the Entire Property
Embrace all the elements of your venue. The best way to do so is by creating a nice flow throughout your entire home. For instance, you can achieve this effect if you host several different events in different areas of your house.
Organise a ceremony in the garden and then welcome your guests by the pool with some cocktail afterwards. This way, you’ll be keeping a flow of movement throughout the evening.
Have a Weather Plan
Try to be prepared and flexible when it comes to weather. You need to be ready and have a steady plan B in case it starts raining. Depending on how formal you want your wedding to be, choose an appropriate tent that you can use in case of any sudden weather changes.
Use Spaces That Have Special Meaning
Try to use the spaces with special meaning for your wedding. It’s nice to have a setting that tells a lovely story and means something to the couple. This will especially look nice in your photo album and you’ll get to appreciate another wonderful memory attached to those spaces.
Get Creative with Your Surroundings
Find a way to fully embrace the uniqueness of your surroundings, no matter what kind of a venue you choose. Pay special attention to your ceremony’s backdrop. If you are organising the wedding in your backyard, use something there as a focal point. It can be your favourite tree or a romantic bench. Anything you can think of. Start with a simple focal point then bring the colour in with small details and decorating pieces that go well together.
Strategize the Catering
When it comes to food you’ll be serving, it is of utmost importance that you have the right equipment ready. There are several things you need to check before you take care of the catering. You need to check the water source, power source, lighting needs as well as the adequate equipment for cooking, and a catering service. Once you’ve checked those things with the catering staff, you’re all set up.
Complement Your Home’s Unique Features
Try to accentuate your home’s unique features. Use them to create a few additional focal points at your ceremony. Set up a creative that complements the colours reception area and the overall architectural style of your house. For instance, if your house has rustic features, accentuate them by using soft pastel colours and fairy lights to bring out the beauty of your house’s unique architecture.
Match the Florals to the Site
Don’t neglect the landscape. It can make a huge difference.
Even the simplest act of trimming the bushes and the hedge can transform the look of your garden. With a little bit of creativity and the right garden equipment, you can make your backyard look like a magical garden straight out of a fairy tale.
Mix up different greenery and place the flowers all around the reception and ceremony area. Accentuate the colours with fairy lights and the place will look even more magical.
If you don’t want to waste your money on rentals, there is still a way for you to use your own chairs and furniture and make the place feel special.
Try to find a creative way to mix and match your furniture pieces that can add a certain charm to your chosen design scheme and décor. Mix different colours and shades and find a way to tie everything in with one colour that creates a lovely flow. You can also mix and match different materials. This will create a unique setting.
An irreplaceable advantage of organising a wedding at home is that you get to embrace the intimacy of the setting. You are getting married in the comfort of your own home that you and your partner are going to share. You are spending this lovely day surrounded by a small number of people that you love. It can be private, intimate, and very cosy.
Everything from the table layout to the reception area can accentuate how intimate this ceremony is. Use the space wisely and make your guests feel welcomed and cosy.
All things considered, organising a wedding at home gives you a great opportunity to be creative and let your imagination run wild. Since almost everything is under your control, use that wisely and organise a wedding everyone is going to remember for years to come.
