Pro - You probably have some personal attachment to this location, which will make your ceremony feel much more special and personal.

Pro - This will be a more relaxed option for a venue. You would have the option of doing something more like a BBQ instead of a formal meal.

Pro - Having the wedding in the backyard may cost less than renting a venue. Money that would have been spent on a venue can be used towards home improvements to spiff up the landscaping! Or, as many newlyweds may be inclined to do, spend a bit more on their honeymoon.

Pro - You may have more flexibility by using a non-venue space. Fewer limits with capacity, no time limit, and you can bring in any caterer you choose rather than the kitchen crew at a specific venue.

Con - You may not have enough space. Often backyards aren’t designed to accommodate large gatherings. This includes finding enough room to place tables and chairs. Con-You will have to spend money on renting equipment, this will likely include tables, chairs, cutlery, plates, dishes, bowls, cooking utensils, pots, pans, etc.

Con - With such a large amount of people there may be damage to the backyard. If your dad is obsessive about his lawn he may not want all your old college friends aerating his lawn with their spiked heels!

Con - Sometimes venues will have people to handle clean up after the event but if you are having the party at home that duty falls to you!

Con - Due to the familiarity of the location it might be difficult to give the occasion that special wedding feeling.

Con - Backyards are generally not wedding ready- You may have to get a tent, set up a dance floor, and rent chairs. It may be easier to get a venue that provides those amenities already.

Con - Most venues will have a on-site coordinator for you to work with. They will answer questions and give you advice about the best ways to utilize the area. Not having this service available to you may increase the stress of keeping everything organized and on track.

Con - You will need to figure out a back-up plan in case of bad weather. Some venues will have a standard plan in case of a down pour but you may not have the same options they will. Their dining room may accommodate 150 people; yours only fits 8.

Like everything with a wedding, a lot of time and thought must go into planning a backyard wedding. Hopefully, the information found in this article helps wedding planners to make more informed decisions.
