So pretty! I think the darker colors are so pretty & will make your wedding unique. I find a lot of backyard weddings are either pastelles or really bright colors, so this is different without being over the top. Cute!

Yay i love your theme mine is vintage bold peacock pics below of how my reception will be set up ,

I love your pics and your ideas are great, vinatge suitcase love it, also can get wooden signs and vintage mirrors, old pics of your mum and grandmas etc in there wedding photo’s on the gift table, battery and solar fairy lights from ebay are a good idea when outdoors, cute vintage sign posts saying, food this way etc I have also seen alot of cake tables with all sorts of cakes not just one wedding cake, so you aunts make a different home made sweet , i love that idea for a diy outdoor wedding , hope these help πŸ™‚

 DIY things i have been doing are the napkin holders in below picture, all the invitations were printed but then i added extra hand made details, hand cut little birdcage boxes with chocolate eggs and hand painted peacocks ill currently cutting to shape will sit on top, I have 200 peacock feathers that im attaching on to florist ribbon and will be tied around the base of large candelabras for each table , the reception center offered alot and now im adding my own DIY touches to make it fit my theme, also I have a finger print tree guest box, which i designed and just need to find a frame yet for yet

I think the backyard wedding will be beautiful. Do you have trees from which to string cafe lights?

or upside down umbrellas

or a parachute would be a great cover for the dance floor

I’ve always loved the pics of lanterns hanging from trees for an outside reception
