@arabesque0128:  How long is the driveway?  How wide is the driveway?  Is there a sidewalk along side of the driveway?  What are your colors?  What is your style?  What is your decor for the back like?   Is the gate/fence the white one? or the black one?  Also, what time is your ceremony?

hmm. not sure if your wedding is during the day or at night. for night, i would suggest pretty xmas lights, luminaries, or lanterns. for daytime, maybe paper lanterns?

I completely understand the situation you are in…I am having the exact same problem. Tight budget and all venues are crazy expensive! My Fiance and I recently purchased a new home (actually had it built) so I have an absolute blank canvas to work with Undecided. Not so good for a wedding when there are no trees nor bushes…. nothing. I want to have wedding here but back yard is so uneven and we don’t have the extra cash nor time to have the yard leveled before the wedding since our wedding is June 30. So I am having to look at doing it in our front yard where we have a little landscaping completed (not much). I don’t want the house in my pictures so what im thinking of doing is hanging fabric on each side of the porch and getting married on the front steps by doing this its going to eliminate the house being seen in the pictures and im having my reception inside my house b/c we are only inviting like a total of 20 people. On each side of my front steps im going to place a pillar with ferns or something on each side so hopefully it looks well!

I know that you’d mentioned it was going to be off center for your ceremony….try using fabric, you’d be amazed at what you can do!

How about making a ribbon or fabric backdrop along the short side of the porch, maybe hang some pom poms on the porch ceiling, maybe a coordinating fabric wrapping the railing. Then have the ceremony on the porch with guest chairs on the driveway. If it’s an evening wedding add Candlelight.
