Spruce up the house
Almost everyone who hosts a backyard wedding concentrates all their energies on making the backyard as beautiful as possible. This is justifiably so. But what about those guests who wander inside the house to have a drink of water or use the toilet? Would you want them to see the house in all is messed up glory? Hosting a wedding in your home is not an easy task and sprucing up the house may not be on the top of your list. But how about contracting it out to one of the many cleaning services out there? They are relatively cheap and you will have different packages to choose from, depending on your requirement. This way, you will be free to concentrate on beautifying the backyard to your heart’s content.
Think of post wedding duties
One of the biggest headaches when it comes hosting a backyard wedding is post wedding duties. Most importantly, the clean-up duties. Many people forget this entirely. It does not take much time to call up the reliable cleaning services and set them up to clean the house and your backyard during the night. This way when you wake up the next day, you won’t be greeted with a backyard full of post wedding mess. If you cannot find a clean-up services, you can also get the help of a few friends and relatives to stay back and clean up your backyard for you.
The fall back plan
When it comes to backyard weddings, one comes to depend heavily on the Gods of weather. But, it is always important to have a fall back plan. Many backyard weddings have been spoilt simply because they forget to think of a plan B in case if the weather was not in their favour. Think of a marquee or a canopy or even a few portable pergolas in case if the weather gods decide to act up against you.
