Planning your wedding is one time when you want to show your guests who you truly are as a couple.  One way to express your personalities is to showcase one of your interests in your wedding … either in subtle or not so subtle ways.  My fiance and I both love football, and are trying to incorporate our love of the game into our wedding.  Of course there is a fine line between subtle and cheesy, so here are some of the suggestions that I have for having a football themed wedding.

Venue: The most obvious way is to have your ceremony and/or reception at a football stadium. Look around for local college or professional sports stadiums.

Paper: Use a football ticket as inspiration for your save-the-dates or invitations.

Or, you could write a welcome packet to your guests in the form of a game program.

Cake: Have your cake designed with your favorite teams colors.

Or, have a groom’s cake shaped like a football field.  While you’re at it … add in a fun cake topper too!

Photography: Of course, football may be present at your wedding if the groom and his groomsmen decide to get a little rowdy in their tuxes. If you aren’t having your reception at a stadium, consider taking pictures at your local high school stadium.  Men turn into boys when put onto a football field!

Other ways to incorporate football into your wedding:

  • Choose your team’s colors as your wedding colors
  • Name your tables after your favorite teams or players
  • Serve stadium food as appetizers or a late night snack

However you choose to display your life as a couple to your guests, be sure to personalize your day to suit you.  GO TEAM!
