I have my dress which is layers of lace (something like the following but without the yellow band, straight accross the chest, and it zippers up the back, and yes I made it, that’s why I have no pictures: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231641.0) and we’re getting married at a campsite. I was thinking something like a garden party? I’m not sure how to go about it though. Our colours are navy and white. And while the campsite is beautiful, all that’s there is nature and a firepit.
How would I got about creating this vision? Or does anyone have better ideas? I’m sort of challenged when it comes to this.

How about a woodlands theme? There have been some great examples in Martha Stewart Weddings. I saw an awesome DIY cake stand made out of branches on Style Me Pretty that would match perfectly. You already have the natural beauty… it’s just a matter of enhancing it!

Ok a campsite is such a cool idea.. I think maybe you could do things that you think of when camping. Smore’s, for example, whether they be the favors or dessert, maybe you could make little paper tents as the place cards things like that.
I know a lot of girls get lanterns for lighting, that could be very romantic. You could give out mini flashlights as a wedding favor.
I don’t know hope some of these will help! Good luck let me know what you think!

I like the camping theme. You can do a menu with an upscale version of camp food – pigs in a blanket, gourmet beans, a soup shooter, etc. Definitely smores for dessert! I like the lantern idea for lighting and centerpieces. You can do a bonfire later in the evening if its allowed.
