@crescentloon23:  Are you saying that everything is going to be white?  That can be very elegant but doesn’t say backyard to me.

What about same… feel…? If that makes sense.. Since it’s backyard wedding, you could stick to neutrals and nature-y deails.. browns and beiges, wood and leaves..

Or have a common element bringing things together, such as the currently oh-so-popular burlap! You can do anything with burlap! Have something burlap in the centerpieces, or a burlap ribbon around chairs, or add burlap to other decor around the backyard… just to tie everything together. 

Or another popular thing right now is chalkboards.. you could use chalkboards for signs throughout which could bring a cohesive feel to it all!

Or, use metal to bring things together! Bright silver or gold accents throughout.


I’m sure it will be beautiful whatever you decide! 🙂

You could pick a color family instead of specific colors. Neutrals, pastels, earth tones, jewel tones, bright/rainbow, etc. I actually think this looks better than having the same one or two colors for everything.
