Summer Lovin' - Sleep Away Camp Wedding Inspiration


Summertime nostalgia doesn't get much better than memories from sleep-away camp. From telling ghost stories over an open fire to putting on a camp-wide production of West Side Story, summer camp is an ideal setting to let your imagination run wild. So why not take that energy and infuse it into your own grown up wedding celebration?! 

We've compiled our favorite summer camp inspired wedding ideas for you below. Sit back, enjoy the trip down memory lane and let's start planning! 

The Venue

Are you even at summer camp if you're not nestled in the trees by a lake? We don't think so! So grab a canoe paddle and work on your swan dive. Depending on your dates, you may even be able to rent out an *actual* sleep-away camp for the weekend. But really any gorgeous mountain lake will do.

The Bride

 A loose, whimsical flower crown is the perfect vibe for a summer camp bride. Forage your own or have your florist create a perfectly, imperfect arrangement.

The Groom

Shine up your finest pair of hiking boots, Marrygrams Groom, you're going camping! And how cute is this duo's matching set?

The Girls

A kaleidoscope of sundresses make your bridal party shine like a bouquet of wildflowers. Top their heads with delicate daisy chains and promise you'll be BFFs long after summer is over.

The Guys

Short sleeve button ups and khakis scream "summer camp formal." Give the guys a color scheme to work with (like tan on the bottom) so there is some uniform.

The Flowers

Wild foraged flowers are the obvious choice to accompany you down the aisle. Mix colors and textures and tie them with a scrap of pretty cotton ribbon for shabby chic perfection.

The Rings

A custom wood burned ring box is exactly the kind of craft you would do at sleep-away camp. Reminiscent of carving your names into a tree but the kind you can take home with you.

The Ceremony

A bench style ceremony in a wooded clearing is as dreamy as it is beautiful. Let the forest do the decorating and embellish with wildflowers and woven rugs for that summer camp feel.

The Cocktails

Wedding bars don't get much cuter than this. Fill a canoe with ice and pile in the drinks! Bonus points if you have a stand like this one that puts everything at a super reachable distance.

The Escort Cards

If this custom bunk assignment escort board doesn't scream sleep-away camp, nothing does. And the addition of a hand drawn map puts this over the top on the cuteness factor. Don't forget to remind your campers to sign your guest book when they get their table assignments!

The Table Settings

Dress up bench style picnic tables with vintage lanterns and bunches of wildflowers. Serve your drinks in mason jars and scatter tea lights along a cotton table runner to complete the look.

The Food

Serve dinner buffet style and pile on the sides. Include camp favorites like burgers, sausages and sweet corn but sneak in some grown up options too.

The "Cake"

Sorry, did we say cake? Obviously your sleep-away camp wedding dessert has to include a s'mores bar. It's just wouldn't be summer without it! Include a variety of cookies and graham crackers and an assortment of different flavors of chocolate so your guests can mix and match.

The Favors

Everyone loves a keepsake from camp! And your guests will adore these custom enamel mugs to take home at the end of the "summer." Fill them with extra s'mores rations to keep the party going.
