The White Wedding at Home
Weddings are always a fun and glam event; when planning a white wedding at home, we want it to be an easy and stress-free event. After all, why arrange to plan a wedding at home without reaping the benefits.
For starters hosting a wedding in your backyard can help reduce your wedding budget, not to mention most people, including the wedding couple, will feel more comfortable with their surroundings. There are no time limits like being in a hall or at a restaurant where everything needs to run on time. Let’s face it, theoretically speaking is a more relaxing option.

To begin with, once you have acquired space and designed a rough layout out of where to settle your ceremony and reception, then you can commence the hiring of the furnishings to make your wedding complete.
The invites are out, and you will know the number of guests, so it’s time to start looking at your layout and the essentials needed on the night.
What to Hire for a White Wedding at Home.
First things first, taking care of the grandeur details. These are the things that you will need as a base for the night. Shelter such as a marquee or indoor area to host the ceremony.
Furnishings include wedding tables, wedding chairs, a dance floor for hire, and a cake table or stand for the wedding cake. Complete your event with some outdoor seating areas for guests these can include our chillout wicker lounges and our popular Hampton style table and chair sets.
It is good to also think about food and drink stations, so hiring a popup bar can be a super handy way to provide refreshments for wedding guests.
Lights are required for the evening and while on the dance floor and to set the scene outdoors. A professional range of lighting options can be hired via our website, and we can help you set these up on the day.
Planning on hosting the ceremony at home? Then you’ll need an aisle to walk down. Set up a white carpet and a few benches for guests to sit on in the backyard.
A beautifully decorated arbor for the ceremony, a small table with two chairs to sign the final documents, and a microphone for the celebrant is on the essentials list.
You can consider a musician to play soft sounds in the background or delegate your best mate to help with the accompanying music for the ceremony. Of course, you can have some of our catering staff serve guests nibbles and drinks after the ceremony.

Tips For Styling a Wedding at Home
A few things to keep in mind when styling a wedding at home include adding the right ambiance for your event. Is it a small and cosy atmosphere you ideally hope to create? Perhaps adding some fairy lights to the backdrop of the main table can enhance this. Think about keeping guests comfortable during your event with weather-appropriate items such as fans during the Summer warmer months and heaters for the cooler periods.
Add to your wedding table little touches that personalise the wedding.
These can be things such as handmade wedding name tags or a table seating plan.
Little limoncello bottles make excellent bonbonnieres for weddings and are also something guests can enjoy on the night.
Make it easy for guests to get around by adding signage boards to show guests where the parking, toilet, drink station, and wishing well are.
Have a DJ play your favourite tunes or have your crazy uncle MC on the night; either way, it is bound to be a night to remember.
Toast to the bride and groom, kick off your shoes, and dance the evening away in the comfort of your own home.
