With the uncertainty that comes along with planning a wedding currently, we are seeing more and more couples stay local. A backyard wedding at your own home or even a local Airbnb can alleviate a ton of stress. You can celebrate with your closest family and friends without missing out on many traditional aspects of a wedding. There is so much room to get creative with decor and you can still wear the wedding outfit of your dreams! Check out our tips for planning the ultimate backyard wedding.
One Tier Wedding Cakes
A smaller guest list means less cake! If you are eloping or choosing an intimate wedding, you can still feature a cake within your design! Work with your local bakery to create a unique one tier cake that is almost too pretty to eat. Even if you are hosting a larger event in 2021 and want a small cake just for you and your future spouse to capture photos will, this option is for you.
This trend might be our favorite! In the new year, many couples are choosing an adventurous elopement. We recommend considering a national park for this trend! There are so many places to explore. You can select a desert elopement at a place like Joshua Tree National park, escape to the beach, or even bring your ceremony to the woods in the Smoky Mountains. Be sure to bring along our elopement must-haves for your special day!
Alternative Wedding Outfits
This year is all about breaking away from tradition. Wear what you want on your wedding day! Whether that means choosing matching outfits or including fun accessories like a faux fur jacket, there are endless options.
