Sports Themed Wedding: Football!

Football season is back and for all of us in the South you know how important this time of the year is!  With the love for the game and of course the loyalty to the teams it made me think about all the fun ways you can incorporate sports in to your wedding.  I love anything at a wedding that sets it apart and some of the best ideas are the ones that are special and unique to the couple.  Sports are that thing that can set your wedding apart and a perfect way to bring in your personalities.

If you or your fiance love football there are a few fun ways to use this at your wedding!

If you love the team colors why not try and use them as your wedding colors.  If the colors are too bold for you, try choosing the same colors in a different tone.  That way everything blends together nicely.  Another idea I love for a football themed wedding is to use grass or the “football field” in your decor! Grass makes a perfect place to set your place cards!

You can even incorporate the football theme in to the food!  Try mini sliders served with a small mug of beer! Too cute!

One of the easiest and most common ways that brides and grooms show their team loyalty is through the wedding or grooms cake!

Or try having the groomsman wear their favorite team on their shoes.  Love this idea!

You can always surprise your new hubby with a football themed garter belt!

And you can’t forget about some of the awesome photos you can get that show off your love of the game!

Keep in mind this doesn’t mean you have to incorporate sports in to everything at the wedding!  Choosing a few small details from the sport and incorporating them in to the wedding (without going overboard) will give you a perfect balance!
