I have currently helping my brother and his fiancé plan their baxkyard wedding. i think ita very doable and love the idea. A couple things to consider are: 

you’ll have to rent everything, tables, chairs, possibly a tent for shade

bathrooms: you will need to rent a few or make sure they sewage system at the property can handle the number of guests. 

Mu brother lives down a small dirt road, so he will be having a couple people help valet for guests to avoid the parking issue and long walks 

a good friend also did a backyard wedding a couple years ago, and the upsides were that we made almost all of the food ourselves, open bar was super affordablue, and we did a big Bon fire at night which was super fun.

@MossySmith:  Thank you so much! 🙂 

We had about 75 ppl. Family + about 10 friends.

The wedding was on a Saturday. We had the rehearsal dinner on Thursday. But the best day was Friday.

On Friday the whole extended family from both sides came over to help set up. We all set up all the tables, lights, chairs, linens, moved the furniture and my cousins and I did all the flower arrangements (except the bouquets). That fun bonding time was so unique and irreplaceable.
