Hi everyone,


With the vaccine passeport in Québec we were thinking about the members of our family that won’t be taking the vaccine. Now, we are thinking about doing our wedding at cottage or in a backyard. This way everyone can intend vaccined or not.
Did anyone of you already did a wedding at a cottage or in a backyard. I am looking for inspiration, ideas, advice, anything that could help.
Thank you

    I know right!!! It’s getting crazy day by day!! 😭
    Slowly getting over it since it messed up the guests list. Then the fiancé is here adding more people feeling bad that they didn’t make the list. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Counting on the children, saying they are not on the list and counting out the servers that they shouldn’t be on the list. Ugh!

    The set up for the wedding can be the same for reception seating so your guests can watch from their seats and then enjoy dinner after while you take your pictures

    Tables from family borrowed may be an idea for cake and decor separately as a large for dinner.

    It is definitely very confusing and it changes so quickly. We have an appointment with our venue (132 days before wedding) never had the chance to do a tasting to find out how many people we can have, what the rules are right now, how many people can be at a table. So many questions we need answers that can all be different by next month.

    The second part was related to Ontario for “before October 12th.”


    It’s just so confusing in general. But businesses/venue have their “right” to choose their policy at this time.

    I think it is because the wedding is not before Oct 12 this year. After that guests will be required to be vaccinated.

    Oh wow, that’s really weird!!
    I guess the venue can decide if they would like everyone to be vaccinated. So frustrating to deal with government vs. Venue.

    That being said, having a backyard wedding will be amazing anyways. You’ll be able to set it up how you like it.
    How many people are you planning to have?
    Are you planning to have both ceremony and reception in the backyard?
    Are you planning to rent a location for backyard style?
    Here are some links below that I was reviewing when I was thinking about a backyard wedding option. https://medium.com/@mariepoulin/we-diyd-our-backyard-wedding-what-we-learned-5978d203977c

    It’s so confusing. My avenue send us an email saying that all guest must be vaccinated. I did call to different venue just to verify and they all required vaccination.

    Hello Soraya,
    I thought that guests/people can attend weddings even if they are not vaccinated?

    I was planning a backyard wedding. However, we did not proceed because our parents were thinking about if we’ll have a tent incase and depends on when the wedding starts in the day.

    We had our wedding last June in my in-laws backyard. It was perfect and we had a pergola as our ceremony back drop and placed flower pots on either side in our colours. Then we had a table with personalized hand sanitizer, our cake, and bottles of water. We also had an iced tea table, and a nice little lounge set up. Then we set up a long farm table under a gazebo for dinner and lined it with some drapery. Just super simple and let the natural beauty of the yard shine. Small wedding 2

    I did a small backyard wedding at an airbnb last October!

    We rented a big table and tablecloth for our cake and some snacks. Used some decor from our home and also purchased some faux eucalyptus vines from amazon. Rented a gold circular arch, small signing table and some chairs.

    It was super in-formal, there was no aisle for me to walk down because of the layout and slope of the backyard, so we walked in together from the side
