@nattiejeanne:  that looks amazing! I Love the site you picked. Do all the guests get camper vans too?

Regarding food, I think you need to plan on budgeting for more than just hotdogs, especially if you are having alcohol.  Lots of people are weird about hot dogs, plus I feel like even 5’2″ 120lb me would have to eat two to feel full.  What about burgers and dogs with fixings?  Pasta and potato salad, several veggie options, chips, maybe like chili or something!

I think it’s a little odd to have such an informal theme and have place holders but idk maybe I’m weird

How far are you from a town with a hotel?  If guests don’t want to camp, and the site is a long ways from a town, people will leave pretty early.

Kayaking and s’mores sound like they will be so memorable and fun!

Have you sent out STDs (Save-the-Dates)? If you haven’t you should almost use a flowchart to help guests decide whether they will stay at the campsite or at the closest hotel.

Sounds like your wedding would be kid-friendly too! (Kids love popcorn)

Love the inclusion of bug-spray. Just keep in mind that not a lot of guests would like to use bug-spray with fancy clothes.

@nattiejeanne: We are doing a picnic rehersal/welcome party at a campleground. I would add iced tea to the drinks, super easy and popular just buy a huge container of mix. Are you doing all the food yourself? Spinach dip is insanely easy to make and so is hummus for dipping veggies (I am making these for our picnic) and my mom is going to bring potato salad. We are getting our grocery store to make up trays of sandwhiches and wraps. Games like cricket, frisbees, lawn bowling and horseshoes.

In that case, I would call the closest hotel(s) to block rooms at group rates for your non-camping guests. 🙂

Yeah, I skipped STDs altogether and built a website (for free) instead when guests wanted more information.

@nattiejeanne:  who’s going to make all the hotdogs and everything?  I really wanted to have burgers but I wouldn’t want to stick my dad with manning the grill all night.

Sounds like a fun wedding. Keep in mind that if you want to use candles for centerpieces you might want to put them in hurricane vases,mason jars or cylinder vases. Even the slightest breeze will constantly blow out the candles.
