I hear you! Everyone’s like why don’t you just get married at his family’s lake house? Well $1,000 for the tent, then need to rent linens, dishes, having a caterer. It really adds up!

This is the case for us. I think we’re spending just about as much money as we would at a venue. Too late to turn back now! 🙂

@FranksMama: WOW! We are looking at a venue that tents it’s pavillion for free. It’s a 1k rental includes tables linens, silverware. It is amazing how fast backyard turns into big money.

I sympathize with you, girl!

We never considered a backyard wedding, because our backyard is the size of a postage stamp.  But I heard before that renting a tent, tables, chairs, linens, etc. is very expensive.  I think we were pretty lucky with our wedding package.  I don’t have to worry about things like napkins and plates.  It’s all included.  One thing less to stress about!
