Fiance were in the process of planning our I Do BBQ before we said f-it and decided to elope instead

we had an amazing band lined up, BBQ food, a bloody mary bar, lawn games, and photo booth before we decided to scrap the whole thing lol

I would add: since it is a more informal environment since a hall/ballroom wedding you can get away with more entertainment like lawn games etc. gives guests the option to do something other than dance

been to a couple.  first of all: consider your season.  have heaters/bonfire in the winter, and be prepared with fans and cold drinks in the summer.   also, consider bug spray, and bathrooms.  one we went to rented a couple of porta-potty trailer (ti was very swank), while the other relied on the single bathroom inside the house for all 100+ guests. 

the best elements: one wedding (late september in the south) had us sit on mexican blankets for the ceremony (the blankets were our favor), then move to picnic tables under a tent for the reception.  

another had paid a company to come out and string xmas lights everyhere in the yard,  it was magical.  a big yard meant that guests were able to mill about and mingle, which was really nice.
