I have my heart set on getting married in my [future] in-law’s backyard. They have been featured on garden tours and have incredible flower beds, etc. They also have a tennis court that I would put a tent over and use as a dance floor. Ideally, I would want around 60-75 people to attend but realistically I know it’ll probably be around 100 guests. The ceremony and recpetion would both be in the yard.
So bees, I would really appreciate any advice, anecdotes, pictures, horror stories, whatever, about back-yard weddings. Thanks in advance!

We got married in my mom’s backyard! (It wasn’t as fancy as your FILs’ yard sounds, though.) We couldn’t have a tent because her yard sloped too much, so our rain plan was to move into the house itself. We were able to have the ceremony and cocktail hour outside, then move inside for dinner and the rest of the party when it started raining.
Mingling before the ceremony:

We’ve actually just moved our location from the family ranch to my FIL’s backyard… Fingers crossed! I hired a day of coordinator just to keep everything in line and on track… Good luck!
