152 – Sports Themed Weddings

Sports Themed Weddings – Episode #152 

Whether you're talking about football, baseball, or any other sport, sport themed weddings are always fun.  We will give you some ideas from the beginning to the sendoff! 

Pre Wedding 

  • Save the dates- whichever sport with the date on the ball, stick, bat etc. 
  • Invitations- game tickets, game programs 
  • Rehearsal dinner 
  • Food-game foods-hot dogs, nachos, beer 
  • Décor-your sport with memorabilia, balls, pucks, bats,  


  • 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  
  • Exit – Hockey stick or bat honor guard exit, pom-poms, fireworks. 

 ***Listener Question*** 

 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

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!
