Having a “backyard” wedding is a great way to save money. You can have a “backyard” wedding and still achieve a classy, well put together appearance. One of our favorite ideas is using black and white checkered table cloths with black sashes.

Decorate the table with fresh cut flowers from your garden in collected wine bottles or place the flowers in tin watering cans. You can also use flowers from your local nursery and place them in small baskets. Put personalized labels on flavored meat rubs that double as place cards and wedding favors.
