A backyard wedding is a classic favorite especially for summer weddings, and it's easy to see why. More casual and relaxed, backyard weddings have an effortless feel and an intimate vibe. When these qualities are translated into a wedding dress, you've got yourself a laid-back look with a hint of chic.

From bohemian to romantic, there are many bridal styles that work for a backyard wedding, but they all have one thing in common-the dress should be light and airy to beat summer's temperatures and match the wedding's atmosphere.

Whether you're getting married in an elegant garden behind a French chateau, rustic barnyard beyond the farmhouse, or the lawn of your own house, we've rounded up seven styles for a backyard affair.
