Do you love the outdoors and everything that goes along with it? Perhaps you and your fiance hunt and fish together. When you start planning your wedding, you may want something that reflects your lifestyle and doing what you love. Consider having a camouflage-themed wedding. Camo wedding ideas abound and there are a variety of ways to make your wedding beautiful with a camo touch. Beginning with your announcements and invitations all the way through your reception decorations, using a camo theme for your wedding can be fun. One thing’s for certain, your guests will remember your wedding and talk about it for years.
Starting with your invitations, consider using an olive green background. Choose a camo-influenced font such as orange or black. You could even add a trim in twine.
There are many ideas for your wedding gown. From short to long and from white with a camo sash to a full wedding gown in camo material, your wedding dress should reflect your personality. There are also gorgeous bridesmaids dresses and almost any style can be made in camouflage material. Perhaps you’ll want to trim the material with a little orange to make it stand out or bring out the colors with your flowers. You could even opt for camouflage decorated high heels to wear under a traditional white dress. If you’d rather not have a complete camo wedding dress, you could have the bodice made up in this design or add a camouflage underlay.
Consider a camo wedding cake to continue your theme. Instead of a wedding couple on the top, you could even use a buck and doe. Or, another popular choice for a camo wedding is a cupcake tree. The tree is made from log slices which are attached to a central log. Cupcakes are positioned on the logs slices and guests can help themselves. If you’d like a white cake, consider adding tree branches and leaves as your decoration. This would fit right in with this type of theme.
The rest of your wedding party can also be in camo, including your bridesmaids and your flower girls. You could mix up the colors by adding a bit of pink to your camo. The flower girl would look cute in a pink cowboy hat or wearing cowboy boots with a camo dress. Even the ring bearer can get into the act wearing a camo vest with jeans and cowboy boots.
One of the best areas to carry out this theme is in your decorations. There are many ways to add camouflage decor to your reception area, including candles made from logs or mason jars with twine. Set these amidst a bunch of fall leaves and it’s a natural outdoor type of centerpiece. Consider using bits of reclaimed barn wood for your table numbers or using larger planks to create a wedding trellis. Natural flowers and other materials can be used to create a beautiful decor your guests will enjoy.
Use these camo wedding ideas to help plan your wedding. If you and your fiance love the outdoors, this is a natural theme for your special day!
