BACKYARD WEDDING? According to this article from Chronogram magazine, it's an idea worth considering:
Carl Beach, owner of Great Food and Company in Staatsburg, likes at-home weddings the best. "There's definitely a more comfortable feeling, and less stress, because everything is familiar to the couple," he says. "A lot of people choose to marry at home because it's a place everybody knows, or maybe they want to share their new house or show off the garden they've been working on together. Often couples get married at one of their parents' houses because they want their friends to see their childhood home, which the parents always love. The guests like it better too—it loosens people up and makes for a better time when people are not in a hotel or a fancy room somewhere unfamiliar."
