Your At-Home Wedding Wonder!

Whether you are trying to save money or you have never felt really interested in the big wedding ceremony, there are plenty of great reasons to celebrate your wedding at home. It is intimate, it is friendly, and it really gives you a chance to let your home shine. How can you make sure that you are making the most out of your at home wedding?

Match the Wedding to the Space

You don't want to make people feel cramped. Where is the actual ceremony going to be? Holding it outside is fairly traditional, and there are plenty of people who have big yards that can accommodate a small wedding of thirty or so. Remember to measure the space for any seating or staging you want to put up, and in general, remember that having extra space is better than having too little!

DIY Decorations!

There are so many great ways to decorate your own home for your wedding. For example, you can make your own floral centerpieces out of your garden, and a quick trip to a home improvement store can give you what you need to build a quick trellis for the ceremony. Consider piercing ping pong balls and sliding them over small Christmas lights to provide a soft glow for a summertime evening wedding. There are so many wonderful options out there that you are sure to have a great time putting your decorations together. If you need some help choosing your wedding decorations, think of a theme that reflects the both of you, and let the theme narrow it down.

Figure Out Parking

Do you know what the rules on parking are for your area? Will everyone have enough space to park? On your wedding website, make sure that you give instructions on where your guests can put their cars, especially if you live in an area where the city likes to tow. This is quite important, especially for out-of-towners who might not know the area as well as others.

Decide on Your Food

If you are holding the wedding at your home, you can cook yourself, but even the most ardent DIY couple admits that having food brought in can be a life saver. When you are thinking of wedding catering, remember that you can choose nearly any cuisine that you like. Wedding catering for a home wedding can be as simple as a buffet, as fancy as a chocolate fountain or as light as tray after tray of beautiful appetizers. The trick is to head to a caterers website, ring them and see if they’re a good fit for your event.

Pet Sitting

You love your cats or dogs, but on a wedding day, they may be underfoot, or worse, they might run outside and get lost as people come and go. Make sure that there is a good place to put them with plenty of food and water, and be sure that someone checks on them periodically.

When you are planning your at-home wedding, there is no reason that it cannot go exactly as you wish it to. There are some wonderful options out there that will allow you to get the exact wedding you want, so keep an open mind, prep everything as early as you can, and smile!
