@Megan2035:  I can understand that.  I feel the same way except I feel like Future In-Laws aren’t taking the wedding seriously even though it’s in their backyard.  I swear it’s llke they think it’s some birthday party we’re throwing last minute.  It’s really upsetting me.  I’ve asked Future Mother-In-Law several times to call places and get prices (she’s paying), but she hasn’t even done that.  I’m ready to cancel it again.

I love backyard weddings!! My fiance and I were going to have our ceremony in my parent’s backyard as well, and we were inviting over 100 guests! We ended up going with our reception venue just because we didn’t have a backup plan in case it rained. I was disappointed though—I totally understand wanting a backyard wedding. It’s personal, it has meaning, they’re beautiful, and intimate. I say don’t worry about what other people are thinking now. They will get there and see how beautiful and special it is, and how much sentiment is behind the choice. Much better than your standard hotel banquet hall!!

@Megan2035:  Aw, sorry you’re getting the brush off from people. I’m sure they’ll get more in the wedding mood as they hear more about the amazing wedding stuff you’ve got planned. I’m also planning a backyard wedding but we’re looking at closer to 200 guests. I think backyard weddings are great. Very personal. And they can definately be dolled up so they look amazing. So just smile and think about how awesome your wedding is going to be!

Well that’s not very nice of them. I’ve seen some beautiful backyard weddings, many of which were much better looking than weddings in other venues I’ve been to. People don’t take my destination wedding very seriously either. When asked we either get responses like “oh you are really going to do that?” or “why would you get married there?”. Don’t feel bad. You can’t please everybody so please yourself!

I’m also having a backyard wedding. If anything backyard weddings take more work than your average ballroom since there is so much maintenance to do. I’m worried about people dressing too casual for it when it’s still a semi formal event!
