Most importantly, you want a backyard with trees.
They are essential to turn your backyard into an enchanted forest wedding.
Without trees, it’s not impossible to pull off an enchanted forest wedding, but it’s going to take more prep work and resources.
If you only have a few in the background or randomly growing, that can be a starting point.
But, what if I don’t have any trees in my backyard?
Take your wedding photos before or after in the forest or a heavily wooded park.
Now, let’s talk about the actual wedding and reception.
Use these ideas to achieve the ambience of an enchanted forest wedding.
