Are weddings going Camo?

What type of wedding do you want to have? Is it going to be something just you will remember? Will it be something your husband will want to remember? 

The biggest question that we get nowadays is how to keep things interesting. Let’s break down this wedding problem.

The problem

Lots of weddings are just too big and expensive.  Most folks will put so much effort and spend a lot of money that is “typical,” very white bread, something most people have been to a hundred times.  The question is, how can you change it up? Well, lots of folks are achieving this by having themed weddings. Some will have a Viking wedding, others will have a Japanese wedding, anything too keep things new and interesting.

What is the most popular theme?

Believe it or not, it is a camo wedding theme. As you may of guest, for the most part these types of weddings take place in the southern parts of the United States.   Still, for the people throwing them they are a lot of fun. They typically will take place out doors and the market is very well served.  A site called Your Camo Wedding even has camo wedding rings for men, camo themed suits, wedding dresses, brides made dresses for this type of event.

Why is this better than other themes?

Well for the most part this is the most affordable. If your friends are going to be buying a number of new cloths for this special event, it is very likely they do not want to spend $200+ on a Viking outfit you will never use again.

Where do camo weddings usually take place?

For the most part they will take place outside. Most the people that threw these types of events are hunters themselves.  This will allow them to have a blast in these types of outdoor environments and further save a few bucks.

Yea but is this for everyone?

Probably not. If you want to be a bride in a nice white dress, this most certainly is not for you. However, if you have to have more than one wedding, this is a good way to save a few bucks and/or mix things up. For example a blogger I know who threw this type of event got married in the UK. For here to ship her wedding dress to her husband’s parents house would cost more than buying a new “camo dress.” Worst yet, if the dress was damaged in shipping, it would be a treasure lost forever.

All that aside, she did not want to have the same wedding experience twice! After the first time, who wants to do the same exact thing.

Another example is yet another blogger, who was once divorced. She did not want to go though the huge expense of a “traditional wedding.”  In the end she decided this was the better way to go.  She saved a bunch of money and had a great story to blog about.
