Is your ‘baby’ graduating high school or college this year? Commencement season is right around the corner and now is a great time to plan the details for this milestone celebration. Never planned a large party at home?

 Alpine Events is here to help with with some planning advice from one of our Sr. Sales Associates, Amanda Wood!

Listen, we are HERE for a good backyard wedding. There’s no telling what will come with renting a venue, but your backyard? You KNOW what your backyard looks like–where the lighting hits the best, and how to dress it up or dress it down. Let us be your guiding light for creating the ultimate backyard wedding or event! 

Rain or shine

Don’t get ready–stay ready! Ensure that you are ready for anything at any time. Rain or shine you are going to want somewhere for your guests to escape the weather. There’s no telling what the forecast will be that day. Look into renting a tent for your big day so you don’t get a surprise for the worst. Don’t make your guests huddle under that tree for cover. 


Not only is it important to look good on your wedding day, it’s important to FEEL good on your wedding day. Adding some string lights as an accent to your walls or centerpieces or candles for the lighting aspects of your ambiance curation. Creating drapery throughout the wedding for shade in the summer and for décor for your cooler months will add depth to the space. Obviously don’t forget the florals! Add dimension to your tables, attire, and venue with florals of your choice for your guests to “Ooo” and “Aww” over. No one wants negative energy at a party! Remember: it is all in the ambiance.

Make your day memorable to your guests by creating spaces that make them feel good. A few string lights, some candles here and there, and you’ve got yourself a vibe. No one wants negative energy at a party! Remember: it is all in the ambiance.

Keep it natural

Don’t rely solely on artificial décor. Incorporate your environment with your event rather than the other way around. Build your wedding displays and spaces around the nature that is already there. You already have the perfect built-in décor! A tree can easily be a backdrop, your house can be the perfect area for pre-wedding prep, and backyard plants can be used to dress up your tables.


No need to break the bank. There are loads of ways you can alter your old decorations and everyday items to look A++ for your wedding. Go on a mini shopping spree in your home and gather all of the items and random decorations you no longer use. It is easy to change the color or alter the look of old items, just gather your things and hop on over to Pinterest.
