One of our all-time favorite kinds of weddings to throw are camp-themed weddings (just like this adorable one from our June/July 2018 issue!). Harkening back to a classic vibe à la the original Parent Trap (added points for holding it on an actual campground), the idea of having all of your friends stay on one property with any number of fun activities to keep you busy all weekend (outside of the usual wedding-related activities) sounds very dreamy. Canoeing, capture the flag, bonfires and s'mores, maybe even a talent show in the mix? Take it a step further and have tee-shirts made with different logos for the weekend and assign everyone to teams for a little friendly competition! Take an extra step and have an awards ceremony at the end of the weekend with prizes for MVP, best overall team, and give out trophies and medals to your guests to commemorate your wedding weekend—favors they'll actually be proud to display!
To get you in the spirit, we've found 11 summer camp cool products that will work perfectly if you're having a wedding weekend of childlike fun and camaraderie in the woods to celebrate your love. Think: classic Americana branding (sans serif fonts, kitschy logos and an almost '50s vibe), lots of wood accents, and enamel camping mugs and plates.
One of our favorite cake stand vendors, all of AHeirloom's sleek and modern stands are sleek but still have that wooden touch that makes it feel woodsy.
