The wedding day is one of the most special days in a married couples’ life. One of the most popular wedding themes that we are seeing today is “camo.” A southern and camouflage wedding can be done in a highly attractive and classy way. In this article, we will discuss some great camo wedding ideas for that special couple who wants to follow this theme for their nuptials.
1. Save-the-Dates and Invitations
If you are following the camo theme for your wedding, one excellent idea is to incorporate camouflage into your save-the-dates and wedding invitations. The amount of camouflage that you use can be subtle, such as in a simple image that is used on the invitation (like the Browning emblem, for example), or it can make a statement (such as using camouflage on the border of the invitation or save-the-dates). Other ideas that you can use for your wedding invitations and save-the-dates include incorporating twine bows and envelopes with a print that resemble the surface of wood.
Another excellent way to add a splash to a camo wedding is to use rustic centerpieces at your wedding venue. This can be done in a variety of ways as the only real limitation is your imagination. Ideas for centerpieces that we love are as follows:
– Small slivers of wood in varying sizes that rest on the table underneath Mason jars. Inside the Mason jars candles stand, adding beautiful mood lighting to the venue. Twine bows tied around the tops of the Mason jars add extra visual appeal.
– A small tree stump that has been hollowed out to be used as a vase. Inside, gorgeous wildflowers rest to add a pop of color to the table’s center.
– Old bottles that have been stripped of their label set onto the table, and filled with beautiful flowers. A camo ribbon tied into a bow around each bottle completes the look.
3. Flower Bouquets
Flower bouquets also provide a wonderful opportunity to show love for the camo theme. One idea is to use wildflowers in each bouquet, complete with a few weeds and sticks to add rustic visual appeal. Wrap the stems with a plain white ribbon, and then complete the look by tying a bow near the top of the stems using camo-print ribbon.
A second idea for the flower bouquets involves a little bit of DIY skill, but the results are worth it. Grab some ribbon in a few different prints, including camouflage. We suggest picking up some ribbon in colors like brown, green, and orange to complement the camouflage. Make your own flowers out of this ribbon and put together your bouquets. The final look will be breathtaking.
In conclusion, a camo wedding can be completely classy and beautiful. We only touched on a few camo wedding ideas, but other ways you can add rustic charm to your wedding is to incorporate the print into the decorations used and attire that the wedding party wears on the special day. Good luck, and congratulations!
