Let's Go Camping Wedding Theme - Ideas and Inspiration

When I saw the latest invitation design from Carey of Lasso'd Moon I knew I had to create an inspiration board around it. It's just the cutest theme and most adorable invitation. It's a Canoe Outdoors Themed Wedding Invitation & Postcard RSVP - which immediately made me think of a camping wedding theme. And, why not have the bride and groom re-create the invitation illustration, but this time with an actual kiss in a canoe along the river? And, of course with camping, s'mores seem to be a requirement so why not have a s'more making session before guests head home, or you can present them with s'mores in a bag as their take-home favor. I've included a list of even more "camping" ideas below . . .

Other ideas to include in a camping wedding include:
- floral pattern napkins
- tree stump chargers
- wildflower centerpieces and bouquets
- silverware presented in tins tied with twine
- serve dinner on picnic tables
- blankets for guests as the night gets chilly
- string battery operated lights thru mason jars for candlelight at night

And, lastly, setting up a mock tent between the trees provides the perfect photo booth backdrop.

Do you have any more ideas for a camping themed wedding?
