My fiance and I are very outdoorsy and are having an outdoor ceremony this June. My dress was the very first thing I bought for our wedding. This was my dream dress and I actually found it on Craigslist for $200! What do my trusted bees think? 🙂

Although it is not my personal taste, I am happy for you that you were able to find a gown that you really love that is evocative of something (the outdoors) that interests you and your Fiance.

It’s not what I would choose, but if you love it then it’s great! Personally I would like it better if the bottom was all white and it was just the sash that was camo. People would still get to see your personality and interests in the dress without it being too much. But that’s just my opinion. :]

There is a lot of camo dislike on this board, mostly due to geographical differences, etc. I guess it is because camo acceptable weddings are in small towns, country areas, and farming areas. (I’m a country/camo/rustic wedding myself in the outskirts of Michigan). If you like it, I say go for it! If you wanted the more feminine look, the camoformal.com has some wedding dresses with the Real Tree Pink/True Timber Snowfall pink too that is just beautiful. I’d try going to their website too, but I don’t think a lot of the dresses were that expensive. Also, for Camo vests, I believe Men’s Warehouse does rentals in Mossy Oak (my fiance is a real tree man though, so we are having his special made). My dress doesn’t have any camo, but my garter will be camo.
The good part about camoformal is that you can take ANY of the dresses and customize them!

I love that you found something you love and weren’t afraid to be a little untraditional. Now what I would choose since I’m not really an outdoorsy girl 🙂

Ahh, I can’t help but wonder if that means you are going to look like you are floating off the ground, with a hole in your torso. It’s because I’m a goof.
I’ve honestly never seen or heard of camo dresses before! What I personally dislike is the pickups on the skirt. I voted neutral because it probably looks better outdoors than it does against the plain white bg and because you’re probably a stunner who is going to knock em dead in whatever you wear.

@DoctorBride: I don’t think its dislike, but like you said, different regions, different opinions. You nailed it, By The Way, I live in a small, farming town in Southern Indiana.

@maudemaisha: No that’s not me in the photo, unfortunately. The dress was a little big, so it’s being altered by a seamstress at the moment. I will take pics at my fitting and post them. Thank you!

Thanks everyone for your opinions, I respect all of them. I appreciate that not all the beautiful brides on this board shares my taste and love for the outdoors, but I sincerely hope you all are as lucky as I, and find that dress that you love, makes you feel fabulous and speaks volumes about who you are! <3

That is a good amount of ‘nature’ on the dress, it actually goes well together with all the white.
I am not basing it on what I like, but what you like and how it incorporates what you like – and it works!

Not my thing but I think the cameo on the bottom is super practical for an outdoorsy wedding. Your train will not show any dirt! Seriously, you can take photos before the wedding, walk around and generally not have to worry about dragging a white train.
