How to Have the Ultimate Backyard Shed Wedding

If you’re getting married in the great outdoors, why not turn your backyard shed into a venue? You can take advantage of all the natural beauty surrounding your house and transform it into a romantic space that’s perfect for celebrating with friends and family. The best part? It takes only a few simple steps to transform your shed into the ultimate backyard wedding venue. Here are some ideas to help get started:

Choose A Shed With A Door That Makes A Statement

Choosing a shed with a door that makes a statement is important for several reasons. First, it will be the focal point of your backyard wedding. If you have a large space to decorate and choose from, this could mean purchasing multiple items or renting them from local vendors at an affordable price (like we did). A big colorful door on your shed can add color and excitement to any room in your home!

Second, choosing an artful entranceway can help set the tone for your day-of decorations by creating continuity between them all throughout the day—and beyond! You might even want to consider painting or decorating this piece yourself if possible so that it matches exactly what each guest wears at the event itself; however, this isn’t necessary unless you want everything else around here to match perfectly together 🙂

Thirdly: Having fun with floral elements such as flowers underneath these doors would really make things pop out even more than just plain wooden ones alone would do otherwise.”

Put On A Couple Of Coats Of Paint

If you’re planning a backyard wedding and want to incorporate your love of gardening into the decor, then this is an easy way to do so. Paint the shed bright white or light blue and then add some plants on top of it. You can also paint it in one color throughout if you’d like! If your shed is new, though, we recommend using a primer before painting it (and even after). It will help make sure that any leftover dirt doesn’t get onto your paint job later on as well as giving off better coverage overall when using sprayers or rollers on large surfaces like this one would be difficult without one being used beforehand.”

Turn The Shed Into A Reception Area

The best part about having your wedding in the backyard is that it’s easy to turn your shed into an amazing party space, as long as you have enough space and light. To create an elegant and sophisticated space for guests to mingle, use tables, chairs, and other furnishings from all over the house (or even ask them to bring theirs). Then add some additional lighting—you can get creative here! 

If you don’t have any extra room in your yard or garden space then consider adding another floor above ground level which will provide perfect vantage points over everyone dancing below. Another option would be installing stairs so that everyone has access up there too but remember they’ll also need somewhere safe while they’re up there so make sure there’s plenty of seating available first before moving forward with this idea.

Add Some Festive Lights.

If you are looking for a more classic look, string lights are the way to go. They can be tied around trees or on posts and they will add that extra touch of sparkle to any backyard wedding. Lanterns are another great option—you can get them in all shapes and sizes so they can fit into any space! Fairy lights are another fun choice because they’re easy to set up and don’t require much maintenance once they’ve been hung up. If you have a smaller space where lanterns would be too big, try using battery-powered lights instead; these come with timers so that you won’t have to worry about tripping over them as well as being able to pick them up easily if needed!

Add Some Greenery 

You can add some greenery to give it life and bring the outdoors in. If you’re planning on having a wedding in your backyard, then you’ll want to make sure that it’s as beautiful as possible for guests who are coming from faraway places. Greenery is an easy way to do this! It’s also great if you have any photos taken during the ceremony or reception; simply place some artificial plants around them so that they look more realistic than plastic ones would.

If there aren’t any natural materials available at all (or they’re too expensive), then consider getting artificial ones instead—they’ll last longer than real ones anyway!
