Wearing a Camo Wedding Dress on your Big Day

Some brides-to-be are choosing to wear a camo wedding dress to have a different look and style. Some choose this style because she or her family has served in the military. Others just like the look and unique style this dress offers. This style looks especially nice for an outdoor wedding, but that does not mean you can not make it work for a more traditional wedding.

Camo Wedding Dress and Your Wedding Day

Wearing a camo wedding gown doesn't mean that the ceremony is informal; the dress can be styled in an elegant and formal style with femininity intact. All you need is to pick a suitable gown for your personal style and the season (temperature and climate). Color coordination is also important if you're planning to have a camo style wedding.

For instance, if you choose to use traditional camouflage trim in your wedding dress, you may want to stick to colors close to that for the bridesmaid's dresses, the vest or pocket, or the groom and his groomsmen. You will want to think about how the entire wedding apparel will look together, not just for the day but how will the photos look as you will be enjoying them for years to come.

There are other ways you can also insert camouflage into your wedding. You can use camo accents in your wedding stationery, your bridesmaid gowns, wedding favors, or wedding decorations. How little or how much you want to include this in your theme is up to you! 

As far as the camo wedding gowns go - More styles of camo wedding gown are out in the market, you have lots of tons to choose from. But you have to bear it your mind that your wedding is a formal event in your life and all the things should be well coordinated. So choose the most suitable style that matches your wedding theme. 

A camo wedding gown can really make a statement. It is one way of personalizing your wedding. It's your wedding after all so what you want is the most important. 

Do you like the idea but you are not sold on it? The first thing you should do is look at the photos on this page. Do they speak to you? Are any of the dresses the type of gowns you would love to wear or do you like them but feel like they are not for you?

If you can picture yourself walking down the aisle and getting married in one of them – what about the rest of the people who make up the wedding party? Would they also be willing to wear camo wedding apparel? Would it be difficult to convince them or would they be all in?

Now think about your family and friends. The first thing you need to decide is how much they will care about you choosing apparel and style choices that are not the norm for weddings today. An even bigger question is how much do you care about their opinions. If you care how others perceive you and your choices you may want to think about what other people will think or feel about this choice.

Parents and grandparents, in particular, might have some grand image of your walking down the aisle in a flowing white gown. If you care how others thing but this is still something you want to do, you might consider letting them know before the wedding.

At the end of the day, it is certainly your decision but you might not want people to be shocked or disapproving of you during the wedding ceremony or wedding reception. No one needs that type of drama during their wedding!
