3 Ways to “Glamp” Your Wedding

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 20, 2012

“Glamping” is a term referred to as glamorous camping. Why would we associate this with weddings? For those couples who think that the average wedding lasts 5-6 hours–think again–weddings are turning into weekend-long events more than ever these days. Couples want their closest family and friends to stay with them to create lasting memories and kick off the start of their marriage. Think about having an outdoor reception, luxury tents for your guests to stay in and lots of food and games to keep the entertainment going all weekend. Here’s some ways you can add a few glamorous touches to your wedding: 

1. Add a lounge area or two for your guests.

What’s an “unplugged” wedding? This is when a couple asks their guests to turn off all electronic devices, including, cellphones, smart phones and cameras, during their ceremony and reception.

Why do this? Having an “unplugged” wedding allows for the professional photographers and videographers to do their job and allows for your guests to be more present and not be distracted by uploading their own photographs to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

What do you think of this trend? Let us know in the poll below.
