·  Planning

While they’re not as serious as your traditional wedding, you still need to a bit of planning for your home wedding. Do you or your parents have a home big enough? To answer this, you’ll need to come up with your potential guest list, the kind of reception you want, and the food you want to serve.

If you can, hosting your home wedding in the summer would be amazing! The weather and nature would have taken care of some of your décor costs. You might even be able to add to your décor by making some flower arrangements if you have a garden with flowers.

·  Plan B

Your home wedding is most likely going to be an outdoor wedding. With outdoor weddings, you are always going to need a plan B for just in case. For example, if it rains our advice is to have a backup tent. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, things can go wrong. So, it is nice to be prepared.

·  Good Lighting

Good lighting is one of the things that make for a fun wedding. Right now, fancy or even old-fashioned string lights are a popular way to add a little something to your big day. It will certainly make the atmosphere of your home wedding even better if you do it right.

·  Rentals

Based on the number of people coming, you might need to rent more chairs, tables, and other wedding equipment. Try to do so from a rental company to make things easier on yourself. You want to have the least amount of stress possible.

·  Personalize

All the best and memorable weddings are personalized. You’ve already taken a considerable step in this direction by choosing a home wedding. Why not go all the way? By having your home wedding, you probably have some money that you would have spent on a venue. Why not use this to go a little further on details?
