Wedding Trend Forecast 2013: Campground Weddings

10/03/2012 11:19 am ET | Updated Dec 03, 2012

If you're a bride planning a spring or summer wedding, you might only need to look to the woods for inspiration. No, we're not suggesting a rustic backyard ceremony or a glam barn wedding... we're talking about camping.

Three-day-long weddings in the woods (or on the beach, or in the mountains) have become a huge trend for 2013 couples. The idea that you can have all your guests in the same venue for an entire weekend is just too appealing for some brides to resist. And there are no rules when it comes to taking your nuptials outdoors. Everything from fireside weddings at childhood day camps, to over-the-top "glamping" excursions is fair game.

If you're thinking about bringing your guests on a wedding adventure, make sure you take the comforts of home along with you. Welcome everyone with baskets of treats that they can snack on throughout the weekend, set up common areas for people to gather in, and provide lots of activities to keep them on their toes.
