I am basically done with planning my backyard wedding for July 2018.
Am I missing anything important?
Attire, Venue, DJ, Videographer, Photographer, Officiant, Marriage license,Invitations, Ceremony Decor, Cake table decor, Welcome Party(3 hr drive so we are asking that guests come an hour early for this)table Decor, Cocktail table, food, dinnerware & serving supplies, cupcakes, Getting Beautified, chair & Table rentals.
Reception won’t be decorated except tables, were having a super laid back BBQ POOL PARTY.
I Even have fun things like photo booth & oversized yard games
& I am on the fence about Wedding Insurance but it’s definitely on my mind.
Let me know ladies, I am a few hundred from my budget so I am just hoping I’m not missing anything important!

reasonali : Looks like you have covered it all. Are you planning to skip alcohol? just wanted to remind incase you forgot.
May be you can rent a tent since it will be in July?
I would suggest wed. ins. I dont think they cost a lot and they give you peace of mind. Also, you need volunteers if not day of co ordinator to take care of vendors, you would not want to worry about rentals and caterers that day.

I have alcohol and we just bought a nice sized tent.
But the insurance and a DOC have been on my mind for a while now.

KiwiDerbyBride : good question !
But the home has 5 or 6 I believe so we should be good.
Thank you though, definitely didn’t think about that!

reasonali : I think you are all set.
Nothing imp. or something that you have to have but would be nice to have is sunblock. July is peak summer and some ppl get sunburnt easily. Sunblock is the last thing in wedding guests mind.
Also, have ton of water available 🙂
