Hi there, as
I know it probably seems funny, but my partner and I are what we like to call “pre-engaged”. This just means that we know that we will get married soon-ish, and he is still trying to figure out how he can ask me in a fun and exciting way (although he knows that I would accept a dollar store ring and elope with him any day of the week!)
So , we have been casually talking about what we want, and have decided on a “woodland picnic” theme. It is a very much “us”. Picnics are family oriented and casual,and the woodland/forest theme goes with our home decor ideas which means that we could use much of what we buy in our home later on.
My question to everyone here is just for idea,s on everything related to these two themes. Activities, games, food, favors, Colours, Flowers Outfits, Accesories, Decor and so on.
Thanks so much. I am new here (just created an account today) so I appreciate any feedback

The Martha Stewart Weddings site had some cute decor and invitation ideas for a picnic theme.

This is the kind of wedding we are planning for May 2013. It’s a family backyard wedding deep in the woods but with nice lawn patches. We are ordering wildflowers from sams club and using light blues/pinks/purples for bridesmaids/groomsmen attire and decor. We are keeping it simple with limited chairs but lots of quilts spread around and the build in benches on the property. Food will be simple picnic sandwiches/salads/lemonade/sangria and cupcakes. We are also planning on games like cornhole/badminton.
