I’m already married but my husband and I didn’t have a wedding or anything (It’s a long story). Anyway, we are going to have a small wedding this Oct. for our closest family and friends. We’re both outdoors people hunting, fishing, mud ridding and ect. We’re getting married at his grandfathers place. All I have are my wedding dress (mossy oak camouflage), and the centerpieces for the tables witch are three red roses (different sizes) in a glass vase, with acrylic water and glass marbles at the bottom, you fill it up with water and it has a white rose candle floating on top. I’ve picked out my cake it’s also mossy oak camouflage but, I don’t have a clue where I can have it made (all I have is a picture of it) Other, than that, that’s all I have. I’m wanting to put deer antlers and maybe some small candles or lights around the centerpieces but dont have a clue where I can buy some deer antlers from for a decent price. I would love and appreciate to have any ideas from anyone. Down below is a picture of the cake I want and a picture of what I’m wanting to do with the centerpieces (slighty different) and this picture I actully found from this site (can anyone tell me another site where I can find this?

The Spring 2012 issue of Martha Stewart weddings has AWESOME outdoorsy wedding suggestions.
I’m one of those women who just doesn’t do anything in the outdoors. But even I was impressed by some of the things that I saw, they were really nice.

I’m not letting FI see your post…lol…he lives camo. As for the cake, some bakeries have the capabilities to make rice paper ediable copies. So maybe you can bring a picture of the camo pattern to your baker. For the antlers I would try your local butcher. I know the guy my FI goes to has tons ofahold discarded antlers laying around.

This is a little more beachy outdoor that I found on this site & love, but I think you can take the idea for some inspiration.
One thing I’ve noticed in really well done outdoor-themed weddings is that most of the decor actually relies on connecting to the camo by matching a color from it instead of making everything camo. I really like your idea of putting the camo on the cake. It’s fun, and I think you can take accents from whichever kind of camo you end up using to use for other decor.
While we’re not into hunting and hardcore outdoor stuff, we’re both shooters. We did consider Montpelier in Virginia just because Madison wrote the Second Amendment. Since we’re now thinking about a DW in Hawaii, I’d like to find another way to incorporate our hobby into it, so I love to see something related like this. 🙂

Yup my Fi isn’t allowed to see this either! any taxidermist probably has probably has a ton of antlers lying around, you could prob even just ask to borrow. My Fi hunts and any antlers that weren’t worth mounting are in a bucket in the garage, so any hunters you know probably has some laying around.

We did camo/fishing as the theme for our wedding 4 weeks ago.
Hubby and his guys all wore camo ties, I had camo ribbon in my corset back. The table cloths were all brown and we had olive, green and tan table runners.
Green camo solo cups we picked up at Walmart green napkins. We had a great time, everyone loved it. and it was US. Subtle camo everywhere without it being over done.

Ask every hunter you know I’m sure people can lend or donate. I would also consider using ribbons in solid colors which match the colors in the camo. Think ghillie suit materials tidied up and used in different elements. I could just see orange beanies as favors keeping all your guests safe for years to come lol.

Oh, and the girls wore dresses that went along with the camo thought. My MOH wore one gree, my Bridesmaids wore a different green and my flower maiden wore tan. The bucket she carried the flower petals in was tan camo as well. My daughters 23 and 21 were my bridesmaids and my 20 yo was my flower maiden. She has always wanted to be a flower girl however was never able to be one.
