Today is National Proposal Day and this Friday, The Hunger Games movie opens in theaters nationwide, so here’s a twofer for you: Hunger Games wedding photo shoots! I know, it sounds a little cuckoobananas if you’ve read the popular books that inspired the movie — some pretty dark things happen in them, so it might not naturally come to mind as something romantic —but I think these wedding shoots on Green Wedding Shoes turned out well.

Luckily neither shoot went too over-the-top with costumes, though braids and arrows found their way to the brides from Katniss. (One shoot has the bride carring a bouquet of arrows. Kinda clever.) Mostly, it’s just classy rustic touches in woodsy settings with some extra flair that you’d have to be familiar with the books to detect. While I may not want these details for my own wedding, as a superfan of the books, I can appreciate them.

What do you think of these wedding shoots? Do you admire the unlikely inspiration or are they too far out for you?

  1. Happy National proposal day to all. Never heard of it. So fitting for todays date, my calendar says springs begins today. June bride here. I like the rustic. I could go to a wedding like this. I think it would be a very nice setting. I have heard of this movie. I hope it really helps with the cause.

      Ha! Your drink is a clever idea. It's like a White Russian crossed with a Grasshopper. :) Sounds delish. Looking forward to seeing more of your stuff on Pinterest, too. (Just followed you there.) Cheers!
