Backyard weddings

With so many couples that need to downsize their wedding, cancel their original date, or save money during uncertain times, a new trend is emerging…backyard weddings!

Backyard weddings can be as simple or detailed as you want. Maybe a sweet ceremony with your closest family and friends with a little cake and champagne afterwards? Or, one step further, maybe hiring a food truck or private caterer? Or even more elaborate with a gorgeous tent, dance floor and your favorite band!

Fredericksburg is ideally located in the Texas Hill Country- which usually means drier days and cooler nights. And when planning a backyard wedding, weather is important!

A few things to consider when planning a backyard wedding:

*Do you have a backup location indoors for bad weather?

*Are there enough restrooms for your guests?

*Is there sufficient electrical power if you’re hiring a DJ or band?

*Is there adequate parking?

*Extra work may be involved for the homeowner like mowing tall grass, spraying for mosquitos, and deep cleaning their home.

But even with all those extra details to consider, a backyard wedding can truly be magical. And we’re experts in turning unique spaces into wedding venues. So, do you have a Hill Country ranch, Fredericksburg estate, historic home, or a sweet cottage downtown? Let us help you turn your backyard into an intimate wedding space!
