  • I would look into a tent... just in case the weather isn't so nice on your special day... also
    try a Dj for entertainment... if you have neighbors, let them know ahead of time that you are
    going to have music... find out your local noise ordinance too and find out if a permit is required...
    As for decorations... go to any party supply store and they have some really cute wedding decorations
    for hanging and tables... also I found at a dollar store, glass heart shaped dishes and filled them up with
    candy for my dd's wedding... used them as center pieces...use white/clear rope light around the tent and or
    the floor of the tent for lighting...
    If you are going off beat from tradition, try tiki torches thru-out your backyard...

    Congrats... and good luck...

  • get a tent or some sort of coverage for weather. even sunny days can be a little too hot for some guests and watch your yard at at all hours of the day to gage when the mosiquitos are not at their worst.

  • Definitely do something about the mosquitos. Have plenty of bug spray on hand for the guests.
