It is the bottom of the ninth— Your dress fits perfectly, all of the food is ordered and every guest has RSVP'd. As you walk up to the plate— the man of your dreams looks you in the eye and you are beaming— knowing that your special day is everything you've ever imagined... a Sports Themed Wedding!
If you aren't looking to host a ritzy black tie affair and tend to enjoy a more casual evening of celebration— maybe a sports theme is right up your alley!
As your guests arrive, have them sign your football guestbook that you can proudly display as priceless memorabilia with famous friends' and family members' signatures. Your guests will be shown to their tables by escort cards designed as ticket stubs, each table will be named after a famous sports icon and/or team.
Have the DJ play "take me out to the ballgame" as your wedding party is introduced. Have fun with this by giving the DJ "stats" on each groomsmen and bridesmaid as they are introduced. An example might be "Rounding First Base - "John Doe" - Best Man From Indiana University, Followed by "Sally Jones" - Maid of honor from Florida State. Up to bat from Depaul University - "Jack Smith". You could even take it a step further and have each one write down a funny fact to be read about them while they are being introduced.
Have your main cake or a grooms cake replicate your favorite stadium or team logo. I have seen some very unique designs come out of this theme, such as the Wrigley Field shown below.
Favors are fun for this theme of wedding, whether you give away these adorable Beau Coup Sport Cookies or you have boxes of cracker jack waiting for your guests, everyone will love the take away! Other great ideas are Golf tees and bags of gourmet popcorn.
You have been reviewing your playbook for the past year and are running toward the endzone! Create the celebration that you have always dreamed of!
