There are many reasons why you should have your wedding at your own home. There is a sense of familiarity, the place is sentimental, and you also do not have to budget for the venue. It is like having another special moment right at the place where you hold so many memories of your childhood and well into adulthood. The privacy is also unmatched so you can enjoy every moment of your big day with your loved ones. Although most residences are not fit for functions for a wedding because of logistics, lighting, parking, and catering it is still doable. Here are ways to have a beautiful wedding at your home.
Make sure that you take into consideration the finalized number of invited guests and how big your place is.
The bigger the residence is, the more chance for you to invite some people. For those with smaller homes, an intimate and small wedding is the perfect choice.
Do not forget to reserve rooms as dressing rooms.
Instead of having to move all of the wedding preparation to your house, have it at your house instead. Make sure the rooms are well lit with a good space for all the makeup and hair preparation. Electric outlets are important too for all the tools that will be used for the wedding preparation.
Utilize the entire property so that you do not run out of space.
Embrace every part of your home from the inside to the outside. You can host various activities in each space such as the ceremony inside the house, drinks in the patio, and then an outdoor dinner in the garden. There is so much that you can do when every space of your home is used for a specific purpose. Do not be afraid to get creative with your house. Let everyone be wowed by how the place turned out.
Always be flexible when it comes to the weather and do not forget to have another plan in case anything uncalled for happens.
Choose a tent that will go well with your theme and add personality to your place. It also is a good decision to invest in a tent in case it rains or in case it gets too hot.
Areas around your house with a special meaning should be used as backdrop for your photos.
Not only will it be meaningful for the both husband and wife but it will also have beautiful stories behind it. Having a wedding at home is truly special so make it more exceptional by including all of the special spots in your house.
Assign a clean up crew who will help with all the preparations before, during, and after the wedding.
With so many people coming in and out of the house for catering, set-up, and venue preparations, the house can get messy very quickly. It is also a goo decision to have a clean up crew to keep the house spotless not just for the guests but for the photos as well.
