2013 Wedding Trend: “Glamping”

by Jan 28, 2013Event Planning

Happy 2013 y’all!  We’re back after a nice long holiday break to share with you some of our favorite up-and-coming trends of the New Year.  We are so excited for a fresh start and have great new ideas for food and décor at your weddings!

One of the first trends we love is the idea of “glamping” (for those of you that don’t know, that means glamorous camping!) as a theme/inspiration for your big day.  This past summer we loved seeing the idea at Matthew McConauney’s wedding festivities, and this year we think it will be in full force!


To create a fun “glamping” theme here are some great tips:

Have the wedding reception outside, and have multiple tents for guests to lounge, dine and drink in. We also think having a kid’s tent would be great! When guests aren’t floating from tent to tent they can enjoy lawn games.  We love the idea of a bean bag toss and horse shoes.

For food and drinks, we love simple yet hearty foods for the outdoors inspired theme.  Barbeque brisket, corn on the cob and fried okra are a must!  For a dessert true to camping have a s’mores station set up around an outdoor campfire!

Finish off the night with dancing to a bluegrass band and a fun signature drink of “moonshine”!  Oh and don’t forget trail mix party favors!
