SO it marks the beginning of the year soon which means i have to hurry up and plan for our may 20th wedding and the anxiety is real. We got lucky, we are having our wedding in a freinds backyard, its roomy and has a beautoful koi pond right in the middle, plus ITS FREE!! our Dj is also free, so ive cut huge costs. It all sounds great but i cant afford a wedding coordinator, which is stressful so we are doing this ourselves…. we will be having about 50 guests, it will be caterered, we got an amazing company to come do bbq themed dishes and we are not going to do a bartender, we will do a self serve beer, wine and maybe 2 speciality drinks… along with of course soda and water….. Im glad i found this forum, because i have so much to vent about. Im stressed when it comes to the decor part, I am great at thinking of cute idea but terrible at executing them. I have barely thought about floral yet, but i know costco does bulk flowers and i was thinking of doing our centerpieces ourselves in mason jars and even our bridesmaid bouquets…. anyone else have a simple small backyard wedding? any advice? so overwhelmed LOL..

My Mother-In-Law ordered these for our rehearsal dinner:
They looked great. The vases were all white, though. If you are not tied down to certain colors, they would be a great, easy option.

Gerberas are easy to arrange and look nice without too much effort – cheap too. If your BMs are in red or blue dresses, use white for their bouquets, red for your bouquet and a mixture on the tables in mason jars.

Morgan Daguison :
I suggest you make your wedding preparations as easy and hassle free as possible, minimizing things that must be done a couple of days/the day before your wedding. With that in mind, I would not choose natural flowers. Here’s an idea that you can prepare months in advance:
Bandanna table runners like the one in this photo, but alternating red, white and blue bandannas:
Paper flowers for the centerpieces in white vases, as well as for the bouquets (these from FlowerThyme, an Etsy seller; they also have gorgeous paper flower bouquets). I suggest one color for the flowers per vase:
