- Rehearsal dinner
- Food-game foods-hot dogs, nachos, beer

- Guestbook – Bat or hockey stick to sign, football, basketball, home plate
- Dress- cute idea for baseball them, if a corset backed dress with laces, lace with a red ribbon to symbolize the red stitching in baseballs, can do in skate laces as well.
- Décor and flowers – would keep it subtle more traditional: team colors are always a good choice for sports themed weddings
- Vows – if writing your own vows through some sports quotes in there.
- Seating – aisle markers to go with theme but subtle as said before
- Seating chart – a bracket seating chart, will call tickets, pucks, or balls with guest names and table numbers.
- Food – gourmet stadium food, kick up the traditional food up a notch. *Minute Maid field in Houston has Torchy's Tacos.*
- Drink – have your bartender come up with themed drinks plus you need beer for any sports themed wedding.
- Cake – let your imagination go with your sports themed cake- cute one- a football smashed into the cake. sport themed toppers
- Décor and flowers – tons of ideas for décor- use the sport you chose liberally. Hockey sticks or bats as centerpieces with team-colored flowers in the middle.
- Mini jersey table number, for the couple, use real team jerseys as chair covers
- Submerge the balls, pucks, etc in glass cylinders and put either candles or flowers on top
- Entertainment- have dance floor in the style of the floor, rink or field of sport

Hi! First of all, I LOVE your show. I found the show a couple weeks ago and I listen to the show obsessively.
My name is Sarah and I’m a bride from Alabama that is struggling to find the money for a Day-of coordinator. I know you guys always strongly recommend getting a planner and delegating! However, I am a very organized person and pretty Type A, so I feel that I can be my own coordinator with some delegation here and there if I am properly prepared! I was just wondering if you could possibly pass on any advice to me either as a response to this email or on the show on how to coordinate my own wedding. It would be so helpful if I had a checklist of things to get together before the rehearsal and day of the wedding, what to do at the rehearsal, and any loose ends I may need to tie up on the day of.
***Timelines are important for both the planning stages, the week of and day of
We have many shows about timelines here is a good one.
Your DJ and Photographer can help you on the day of timeline
Planners and organizer books will help with example and walk you through the steps
Shannon's advice-delegate a contact person on the day of to help with vendor questions, we always have questions and would prefer not to bother the wedding couple on their day.
I am hoping and praying you guys can help me figure out what to do. I am getting kind of stressed, but listening to your advice on everything always makes me feel so much better!
Thank you in advance! I hope to hear from you soon!
