Take a boatload of stress off of yourself by hiring professionals along the way, like a party rental company for tables, chairs, tents, arbors, etc. If you’re looking to cut costs, though, consider a BYOC (bring your own chair) affair — a newly-popular wedding trend in which guests bring their own seat (preferably of the non-lawn chair variety) to the wedding.

Most people automatically think rustic when they think backyard wedding. But the truth is, you can pull off any style, trend or color scheme you want. Here, soothing cool tones, like misty gray linens paired with an abundance of greenery create a serene, sophisticated, garden-esque reception space. Photo: Sergey Lapkovsky Photography
You don't have to have people cake toppers. Use a phrase that sums up the whole day or even a quote about love that you and your spouse like. Tiny banners with twine are a great choice for rustic weddings.
This cozy bedroom features layers of textures and pattern all set against a striking black feature wall. The rustic, wooden bed frame stands out against the colorful and varied patterns of the throw pillow. To the right of the bed, a large ampersand, a symbol of connection that was widely featured in Tanika and Brian’s wedding sits by the window. Its weathered metal is a perfect echo of the weathered wood of the headboard - once a room divider that Tanika repurposed for the room.
