We are getting married September 9, 2011 in our own backyard. Just a small wedding with 12 guests. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for improving our yard and maybe some nice (inexpensive) decorations. We live in Zone 3, if that helps anyone and there are huge trees so it's almost all shade.
We were thinking of having the ceremony face south (yes, we are taking the dog fence on the garden shed down!) I haven't really settled on a colour yet, so that's pretty open. We are also having the reception here (thinking we could have the tent set up on the parking pad and the men could just move it to the grass after the ceremony and set up the tables and chairs.
The house is on the east side of the yard, the tree and garden shed are to the south and the garage is on the west side.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
