Your friend is crazy! I was expecting to see something with Mountain Dew and Cheetos when I saw the thread title.

I think they’re more of a rustic look than bohemian, but I love them. And they’ll definitely go great alongside your inspiration photos.

I’m not entirely sure what ‘honey boo boo’ ish means….and I do know who that is. I just apply trashy to the whole kit and kaboodle.


Your theme and invites on the other hand? Lovely! To me it states classic, elegant yet country.

I think they could be ‘fancier’ (for lack of a better word) based on your inspiration, but they’re definitely cute & country, not “honey boo boo-ish” haha, I promise!  I was expecting something super inappropriate based on your description!!

Your theme is cute! I’m not sold on the invites. Maybe it’s “the hunt is over” part that I’m struggling with. I think you could do better

crisy003:  Your Mom was probably expecting something a little more traditional. It’s probaby what she is used to.

I think they are cute but country/ hunting not boho at all.

They are cute, but I would expect a full on camo wedding from those invites, and my family hunts.

Seriously? I hate to say it, but I’m with your mom. The references to hunting and deer invoke the idea of shooting and killing animals.  Some of your guests, even if you are in Texas, may be animal rights supporters, vegetarian or staunchly anti-gun. I wouldn’t even dream of using those invitations. Putting all that aside, not sure where there’s any kind of boho vibe.

LOL… You made me LOL for real. But seriously, these seem perfect for what you are doing. They are not tacky but fit your theme well. I bet your mom is just more traditional. My mom would have said the same thing…

Also – FUN FACT – I actually know “Mama June” and Honey Boo Boo personally…. I knew them well BEFORE TV. They are for sure rough around the edges but super sweet people. A lot of what you see is for TV. 😉

crisy003:  love the “idea” you’re going for but not those invitations. Every “the hunt is over” invite I have ever seen is usually followed with groomsmen in camo and the bride with an orange sash on her dress. Stick to the idea, it’s fabulous, but I would keep looking for something a little different for the invitations.

CallMeMrsG:  You do?! I looove them. I think they’re one of the most amazing families on television – they clearly have so much unconditional love for each other, and I love that Mama is saving money for the girls’ education rather than going full Kardashian. I’m glad to hear they are awesome in real life, too!

crisy003:  I really like your invitations! I’d go for them.
