Here are six spectacular ideas for turning any lawn, field, or backyard into a space with vow appeal.

Gallic Garden

Imagine your outdoor wedding on the historic grounds of a French chateau. Stroll down a stone pathway to exchange vows in a small pebble garden framed by boxwood-stuffed urns and architectural pedestals.

Tall zinc finials, $499 each, zinc cube pedestals, $319 each, zinc footed urns, $239 each, and large zinc footed bowl, $179, Restoration Hardware. Two-seater white-washed wooden benches, $189 each, Ballard Designs. Stone mats (used as a runner), $48 each (we needed about 20), Chiasso.

Tip: For a DIY pebbled piazza, construct a 10-foot square wooden frame using one-by-two-inch lumber. Line the interior with a canvas drop cloth, then fill with stones.
