From the garden to the beach, each outdoor wedding venue has its unique personality. And while the venue offers the background and a beautiful setting, it’s up to you to include the details that make your wedding your own. We’re rounding up ten of our favorite little luxuries, from charming sights to eclectic sounds, that will definitely give your ceremony that personal ambiance. Here’s our list of open-air wedding ceremony ideas that we’re kind of in love with.
What’s not to love about a backyard wedding? They’re intimate, convenient, and perhaps best of all, often a budget-friendly (if not free) venue. But before you write off a backyard wedding as an overly casual affair that welcomes a rustic vibe only, know that there are endless ways to transform it into anything you want it to be.
For an elegant, formal look, a tented reception can go a long way. Pull back gauzy curtains with vines of florals or greenery for a statement entrance, suspend chandeliers from above for a bit of ambiance, and bring reception tables to life with gilded candelabras and chic linens. Bringing the indoors out in the form of a luxe lounge area will also create a more elegant vibe.

Planning for live music for your wedding ceremony is the good choice! Consider a one-man piano show. He or she can play everything from the Wedding March to that Billy Joel song you love best. Romantic, unique, and literally, music to the ears. It definitely won’t hurt adorning the piano with greenery and candles either.
