A Football Themed Wedding
For those couples that are big sports fans, a football themed wedding might be the perfect way to show your team spirit. Not only are themed weddings more original and unique than the average, they can also be less expensive and more personal. Here are some ideas to help you brainstorm about your football themed wedding.
Invitations can sometimes be tricky for a themed wedding. While you can find football themed invitations, they can be expensive and rather generic. If this becomes a problem for you, consider making your own invitations. Football themed stickers, ribbon, and scrapbook paper is readily available at most craft stores. Simply choose colors that reflect your team and you can put together inexpensive, personal, and memorable invitations for your special day.
Having your wedding at an actual football stadium is the obvious choice for a themed wedding. However, if this is not possible, consider a local park or other outdoor location. Even if you would like to have a more traditional indoor wedding, a football theme can still be accomplished if that is what you want. Some brides go all out and have their wedding dress designed around the jersey of their favorite team. Or you can wear a more traditional gown and have your bouquet reflect your team's colors. Perhaps you could add a small football helmet or other football token to your bouquet as well. What about having your bridesmaids dressed as cheerleaders? They certainly wouldn't complain about having ugly dresses that way. Or perhaps you could have your bridesmaids carry teddy bears dressed as football players instead of flowers. This would make a special thank you gift to them as well.
Decorations for a football themed wedding should be fairly simple and inexpensive to do. For the more elaborate decorator, what about an ice sculpture of the super bowl trophy? Silver or gold cup trophies can be filled with flowers and used as lovely table centerpieces. Or, one wedding planner suggests, "Use a white megaphone imprinted with your names and wedding date to support flowers for a centerpiece." Food for a football themed wedding can be more casual and reminiscent of a tailgate party. Even your wedding cake can fit into the football theme, either subtly with a football cake topper or extravagantly in the shape of a football stadium. However you decide to demonstrate your team spirit, you and your guests will enjoy the memorable, unique football theme.
