    What mossy oak pattern?  
    Where are you going to put camo if not on the tux?  

    How will you what to the chairs?  Where are you having your wedding?

    And what do you mean when you say you "don't know the right shade"

    For starters, I'm always seeing vests for under the tux on the photo galleries here.
    He could also get a camo tie.

    In terms of any decor...
    Maybe you don't have to specifically go with "camo" but instead go with a really woodsy sort of theme. Have a deer with huge antlers on your STD cards (I've seen at least one example on vistaprint), or antlers at your head table.
    Maybe you could get him a groom's cake that looks like a shot gun or rifle.

    There are certainly ways to honor his hobby without turning the wedding into a glorified Bass Pro.

    ...what?

    No no no.  Camo theme is more appropriate for a small childs birthday party.  Put your foot down on this one.  Maybe his grooms cake can be decked out in camo.  A woodsy natural theme is probably the way to go.

    [QUOTE]I don't think you will have to worry about a full out camo tux.  If he wants one, he would probably have to have it custom made.  I have seen camo vests (Though I don't approve!). <a href="http://www.blacktieguide.com/Supplemental/Hall_of_Shame/camo1_2010_CROP.JPG" rel="nofollow">http://www.blacktieguide.com/Supplemental/Hall_of_Shame/camo1_2010_CROP.JPG</a> <a href="http://www.blacktieguide.com/Supplemental/Hall_of_Shame/StyleForum.jpg" rel="nofollow">http://www.blacktieguide.com/Supplemental/Hall_of_Shame/StyleForum.jpg</a>

    <div>OMG that is the worst thing I've seen.  Wow.</div><div>
    </div><div>Camo vest I could MAYBE tolerate - if you were Cory and Leah from "16 & Pregnant".  </div><div>
    </div><div>I agree with PP - "woodsy" theme is much more wedding- and adult-appropriate.</div>

    I don't even know how you could possibly match flowers, dresses, and other decor to "camo".  No good can come from that.

    The point of Camo is to blend in right? 

    If he really wants to blend into a wedding tell him to wear a black tux instead! call it "wedding camo"!!!!

    I don't see how there is anything wrong with allowing your FI to include his hobbay at your wedding. FI really wanted Camo vests, but too bad there was no where to rent them around here.

    However we compromised on a few things, he really wants to do our (official) engagement photos at a shooting range (something that he is overtly passionate about). He also previously worked at Cabellas, and saw countless couples and wps come in on their wedding day to snap a few photos in the hunting/fishing aisles, so I said that time premitting we could do this as well.

    His groom's cake is a giant camo cupcake, and out cake topper is hunting related.


    He gets this and and I get my troupe of Irish dancers for entertainment (my passion).



    Oh and this......



    He is wearing it forever.... not me.
    Add a few personal touchs, you don't need to turn the whole thing into blaze orange and real tree apg.

    Maybe you can compromise with his wedding band. Was looking for a camo ring for forever myself.... found this:
