plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I’m super excited about today’s contributor. She’s long been a fan of Landlocked Bride and was jumping at the bit to share her ideas and inspiration with our readers. I’m thrilled to have her on board and hope you love her weekly posts as much as I love reading them. Please give Ashley a heartfelt welcome to the Landlocked Bride family.


One trend that we can really get on board with in the Midwest is camping. It showcases the natural beauty of majestic forests, soaring peaks and pristine lakes that people flock to the region for. This trend is especially on point for the couple that has enjoyed the beauty and adventure together through dating and courtship, giving your celebration a personal touch that leaves a lasting impression on your guests and a sentimental touch for the couple.

If you’re a down-to-earth gal (or guy) looking to incorporate a bit of elegance and less rustic to your camping theme, try “glamping.” Popularized by stars such as Matthew McConaughey and NCIS Los Angeles star Eric Christian, couples can mix camping touches with the glamour that comes with weddings. We’ve collected a few items that can be used to incorporate a bit of nature and the rustic yet elegant camping feel into your big day. .
