10 Tasteful Wedding Ideas for Sports Fanatics

 

Teamwork makes the dream work! Score points with the hubs and knocks your plans for the wedding out of the park by including a little team spirit in your big day in the nicest way. There are ten sports-inspired wedding ideas which are guaranteed to give you and your guests something to cheer about.

  1. The Food

Instead of the stuffy rehearsal dinner, set up your pre-wedding party after a high-end tailgate, complete with sports team friendly décor, your favorite food trucks, and booze. In addition, you can incorporate your game-time snacks by serving them with stadium style so that your guests can enjoy as a late night treat.

  1. The Program

The wedding of Morgan Haile of Morgan Taylor Lacquer with former pro-baseball player Tony Gonzalez was in the whole sports theme. Instead of traditional wedding styles, their wedding was designed like a game with pictures of the duo and party members in them. So cute!

  1. The Cake

The cake is a given, but if a full sports-themed cake won’t make the cut, Jessica Janik of The Invisible Bridesmaid has another understated idea: have your wedding cake’s inside dyed to match your team so that when being cut, it bleeds the team’s colors.

  1. The Color Scheme

Rather than plaster the reception with team gear, couples can incorporate the layers of subtly which show off their team loyalty. For example, Packers fans can choose a lot of greenery such as eucalyptus or tropical palm branches. If your team’s colors aren’t wedding-friendly, try using the colors like white, which always looks elegant.

  1. The Guestbook

If you’re a fan of a baseball team, for example, let your guests sign baseballs instead of a traditional guestbook. And if you’re a hockey fan, have them sign a hockey stick. Lynn Jawitz, the owner of Florisan Wedding and Event Design in NYC, had his guests sign his baseball jersey with sharpies.
