Hunting Camouflage Hunting camouflage is used by hunters to blend into their surroundings by mimicking a specific type of environment. This type of camouflage uses earth tones as the base color overlaid with images of tree branches, leaves and other types of vegetation, although other colors, like pink and orange, are common as well. Hunting camouflage is a common camo wedding dress fabric. Military Camouflage Unlike hunting camouflage, which is characterized by complex and detailed images of vegetation, military camouflage uses intricate patterns and color combinations to render the wearer invisible or difficult to detect. 1. Army Camo Army camo can refer to two very different styles of camouflage. There’s a more traditional concept of camouflage, which is actually woodland camo and the original camouflage used by the armed forces (see description above). It can also refer to the digital camouflage pattern currently used by the military. This camo pattern is characterized by a series of seven colors, earth tones ranging from cream to olive and dark brown, organized into a pixelated design. 2. Realtree Camo Realtree Camo is a popular brand hunting camouflage known for its wide range of patterns that have a unique, three-dimensional appearance and mimic a variety of different terrain. 3. Predator Camo Like Realtree camo, Predator camo is a brand of hunting camouflage. Instead of three-dimensional patterns, predator camo uses an open pattern technology, making it difficult to focus on your figure. The patterns are designed for a range of different outdoor environments and are characterized by bold, irregular layering of images of leaves, branches and other vegetation. 4. and 5. Pink Camo For camo that feels distinctly feminine, but still edgy, pink camo is perfect. From 3-D graphic patterns with realistic vegetation to the the classic woodland style, almost every camo pattern on the market comes in a shade of pink. 6. Digital Camo Digital camouflage is a modern camo pattern designed using computer algorithms to generate micro- and macro-patterns that have a pixelated appearance. The Universal Camouflage Pattern, the official camouflage of the US armed forces up until 2014, is an example of digital camouflage. 7. Desert Camo Made to blend into the desert landscape, this type of military camo uses what is known as a chocolate chip or six-color desert pattern. The base of the desert camouflage pattern is a light tan overlaid with broad swathes of pale green and two-tone bands of brown. Clusters of black and white spots are scattered throughout the pattern and are intended to mimic the appearance of pebbles and their shadows. This style of camo is less common in day-to-day life than many of the other camo patterns. 8. Woodland Camo The most quintessential of all camo patterns, when you think camo, this is probably what you envision. Woodland camo has become fairly mainstream and is the go-to camo pattern for the fashion industry. This type of camouflage uses a four-color, high-contrast, disruptive pattern with irregular markings and earthy neutral tones (sand, brown, green and black) derived from nature. Woodland camo was originally used by the US armed forces between 1981 and 2006. 9. Urban Camo As the name would suggest, this type of camo is made to mimic urban terrain. Used more in fashion than out in the field, especially in menswear, urban camo has the same high-contrast disruptive pattern as woodland camo, substituting shades of gray and black for woodland’s green and brown hues. 10. Tiger Stripe Camo With a pattern closely resembling tiger stripes, from which it earns its name, tiger stripe camo is designed for dense jungle environments and was used by the US during the Vietnam War. The pattern comprises overlapping brush strokes in shades of green, brown and black that mimic those found on a tiger. 11. Snow Camo Designed for snowy landscapes, snow camo has a white base as opposed to more traditional camo styles, which use green or brown hues to form patterns. Like other camo patterns, snow camo incorporates seasonal (winter) vegetation into the foreground, such as branches, sage and leaves in lighter, more muted tones. The white color makes it a popular choice for wedding dresses, especially for brides who want to stand out without veering too far from tradition. Camo Wedding Dresses Now that you’re familiar with all the various types of camo on the market, it’s time to go shopping. Once you’ve decided to take the camo wedding dress plunge, there are a couple things you’ll need to consider. Fit and style are hugely important when choosing a wedding gown, but a bridal consultant will be able to help you discover the cuts and fabrics that are most flattering for your figure. If you plan on buying your dress from an online retailer, we recommend visiting a salon beforehand to get measured and try on a few dresses to familiarize yourself with the fit, feel and look of different fabrics and styles. If you don’t have a bridal salon in your area that carries camo wedding dresses, see if the designer you plan on ordering from can send you a sample before you make your purchase. Fit and design vary from one designer to another, so what you try on at a salon might be different from what you order online, even if they appear to be similar. Beyond fit and silhouette, it’s all about the details. What that means for you is choosing a camo pattern you love and deciding on just how much of the print you actually want to wear. Can’t get enough camo? Go for a ball gown with a Realtree camo overlay. Looking for something slightly more subtle? Traditional white wedding dresses with camo detailing, like front inserts or camo trains, are for you. Or, you can save the camo for the reception and go classic for the ceremony and then slip into a fun and flirty camo dress for the after-party.

Camouflage wedding dresses aren’t the only way to incorporate camo into your wedding look. If you’re not ready to commit to head-to-toe camo (or even if you support the idea that one can never wear enough camo), why not personalize your gown with camouflage accessories in your favorite camo pattern? Ditch the idea of “something blue” and instead opt for “something camo.” Switch out the traditional embellished belt and dress up your waist with a stylish camo cincher. Walk down the aisle in sky-high camo heels or keep cozy in cool weather with a camouflage bolero, shawl or cardigan.
