Have you heard of glamping? Glamping is a popular trend that takes the “roughing it”out of camping. For those of us who like the idea of adventure but miss the amenities of home.
Trendy “glamorous camping” has made it’s way into the wedding world. Glamping inspired wedding themes are popping up all over wedding blogs and pinterest boards. For this theme combine rustic, woodland settings and decor with elegant touches and personal, carefree elements that play off the idea of camping . Shindigevents.org shared some inspiration for an upcoming wedding show event; creating their own take on the Glamping Wedding theme trend. Check out their post and pinterest inspiration pins here.
Inspired by their fun glamping finds, I’ve put together some of my own. I do have to note I had to re-post ShinDig’s pin from celebrationsathomeblog.com; that marshmellow chandelier is such a great statement piece that captures the fun nature of the trendy theme.
Glamping wedding theme musts: to start with a fabulous outdoor or rustic setting. Utilize tents or a spacious loft for an elegant reception. Even if your glamping wedding takes place right in your local community or your own backyard make it feel like a destination wedding.
Mix decor with salvaged, rustic items like old jars, containers, hay bails and crates. There is beauty in the ordinary; an assortment of wildflowers make a beautiful centerpiece and add a pop of color. The uniqueness of this trend is to pair these rustic items with elegant table settings and romantic lighting. Remember to bring the luxury of indoor amenities to your rustic locale.
Finally have fun with the wedding theme. Save with DIY items and salvaged or recycled pieces and splurge on a few luxury items. A gourmet dessert bar or wine and cheese pairing before the meal would be something for everyone to enjoy. Who knew camping could be so glamorous?
