My fiancee is a duck/goose/deer/turkey hunter, and I am always looking for *subtle* ways to put this into our wedding. Please let me know if you have any ideas, or things that you have done. So far I have a cute wedding cake topper, and a few other small things.

@ladybuglady23: maybe a camoflauge hanky for his pocket ( what ever that is called on a suit or tux lol) Also maybe camoflauge ribbon around the base of the bouquets.
Honestly this is a tough one because you dont want it to come out tacky

Ha! Been there. I had all the jokes about having a camouflage wedding. We ended up just having an “outdoorsy” elegant wedding with green, gold, brown and bronze as our colors and pinecones and pumpkins as our accent pieces. You would absolutely never affiliate it with hunting though…

- Wedding: July 2014 - Barn
I’m in the same boat as you! My Fiance is a hunter and would kill for a camo wedding – haha not happening! I’m planning on doing a country wedding (looking at having it in a barn), and our colours will be purple, silver and black – no where near being camo!!
We plan to get a greyish cake that looks like wood with flowers on it and initals “carved” in.
I plan to get camo lingerie for the night of 😉
I will be getting a camo garter for him – I don’t care about that at all.
I seen these cute 2″ metal rifle guns listed on etsy that I’m thinking of adding to his boutinerries.
The invitations I’m looking at either doing a wood background, or two deers “in love”.
For our engagement pictures, I compromised saying I’ll do camo pictures with him. I actually just got a new camo sweater with purple on it!!!
Hmm…thats about all I can think of now – but yeah definitely staying far away from camo. He gets that I’ve dreamed about this day since forever, so he honestly doesn’t care what I do, but I’m excited to surprise him with these small things!! Hope those help!

I’m going to have deer antlers above our dessert table. and try to incorporate a stag silhouette into the stationary. But that’s about all I can think of at the moment. It’s hard to do too much hunting themed stuff without it coming across as tacky.

We are getting married in a hunting lodge, and our reception is at the hunting and fishing club.
I made Fiance this cake for his birthday, I’m thinking I may make another for his grooms cake.

This wedding just popped up on StyleMePretty and I remembered this thread. Some of the centerpieces in this wedding have feathers and some have antlers, but it looks super classy! And there are some other touches of bucks/birds/branches.

Check Pinterest. There are quite a few inspiration boards that are a mix of heavy hunting-theme and subtle hunting theme.

@julies1949: I love the bullet boutonnieres! I think small touches like these are the best way to incorporate hunting without coming off as tacky.
