An increasing number of engaged couples are now paying for their own weddings. As a result, traditional wedding themes are now giving way to celebrations that reflect the couple’s tastes and lifestyle more closely. As a trusted Atlanta event rental company, we’ve had our share of helping couples plan their modern weddings. If you and your betrothed share a passion for America’s quintessential fall sport, read on below for suggestions on how you can include your love of football in your wedding plans.
Don your favorite team’s jersey and pose for your engagement pictures while scoring a touchdown. If you prefer a more formal way to announce your engagement, wear your team’s colors and include their logo in your announcement. This will help set the theme for your wedding early.
Save the tiered wedding cake for the reception. For the groom’s dinner, have a skilled caterer bake a cake featuring the favorite football team of your husband-to-be. Hold the dinner in a sports bar to complete your football-inspired prenuptial celebration.
Use your football team’s colors for the bridesmaids’ gowns as well as for the reception area decor. Use a color wheel to find hues that complement rather than clash with your team’s colors so you end up with a pleasing and interesting mix of colors. You can also opt to use your football team’s colors as an accent color rather than have it as the center color of your wedding.
Drop by the stadium and take some pictures with your wedding party there. The contrast – you and your spouse as well as your wedding party in formal attire on a rough and tumble sports field – will make for interesting and unique pictures.
Sporty Wedding Reception
If you really want to go all out, you can have your wedding reception in a stadium rather than an ordinary event space. If you’re watching your wedding dollars, you can invite the team mascot to make an appearance at your wedding instead.
