With small, intimate weddings becoming more popular, many couples are opting for a casual setting for their big day. And what better venue is there than your own backyard? At-home weddings are not only great for your budget, but come with endless possibilities for a creative and cozy vibe. (And what ballroom or banquet hall is as meaningful as the backyard you played in as a child or the home you now share as a couple?) Hosting a wedding at home can be as laid-back or as whimsical as you'd like. Serve your dad's famous BBQ, or go more formal with a lobster bake. Make it memorable with framed family photos as your centerpieces or DIY your own lush peony arrangements. Here are some of our favorite ways to celebrate at home.
