Holding your wedding at your home (or someone else’s, such as your parents’) provides a wonderful setting and gives you that true sense of nostalgia if you were brought up there. However, there is a lot to consider if you choose a home wedding.
One of the first things you should determine is where around the house you plan to hold the wedding ceremony and reception. Will it be outdoors, indoors or in a marquee on the lawn? Importantly, do you have enough space to accommodate all of your guests?
Getting the logistics right on the day is something else to sort out. Where will the ceremony be held? Will there be parking available for guests? Is there a contingency plan in the event of bad weather? Do you have appropriate lighting when it gets dark?
From there, it’s a case of hiring photographers, music, caterers, tables, chairs, plates, glasses, silverware etc. Whereas most reception venues will provide a lot of this, home weddings mean you have to organise it yourself.
It may seem like it’s an endless to-do list, which is why it’s important to plan ahead as early as possible. And then there is one aspect you mahe forgotten about: wedding chair covers.
