I have not but I wouldn’t say that it’s impossible. You may be able to find a very rustic or somewhat rustic space that will go with the theme just fine.

I did a DIY backyard wedding so I definitely know what you’re going through. It’s a lot to plan! I think it’s harder to acchieve that kind of outdoorsy atmosphere in a restaurant, but it’s certainly possible. And would probably be a lot easier. If you have questions and the backyard option, feel free to PM me!

@MoopersMom:  I think you could bring in rustic elements through your decor – think centerpieces, escort cards, bouquets, there’s a million ways to personalize your wedding.

@MoopersMom: I think you made the right choice. I know someone who rented an empty,  large-space venue. It ended up that prices for rentals were a big chunk of the budget. Including gratuity and tax, food was 90+ per person, rentals (from tables to glases) was 60+ a person, with alcohol additional. They paid much more per person, when everything was added up, than if they went with a place where everything was included.
