Here’s what we know about our wedding so far:
Date & Time: September 15, 2012
Location: My parents’ backyard
Predicted number of attendees: 40
Theme: Picnic wedding
When I told my parents I was getting married, my mom insisted on helping. First, she offered her backyard as a venue. After looking at venues ranging from $1500-$4000/day, I concluded that her offer was probably a smart idea. Plus, she has a large, lush, and beautiful backyard.
Before deciding on food, decorations, wedding attire, or even the date, Johnny and I pondered over a theme or style. We’re both very outdoorsy, and enjoy the simpleness and freedom of country life, though we live in the city, so we settled on a country-style backyard picnic wedding. So far, the images I’ve had of our wedding include red gingham table clothes, mason jars, lemonade, wildflowers, burlap sacks, and hay bales.
