#1 - Football Field Engagement Photos
Your favorite team's football field would make an awesome background for your engagement photos. Go the classic route and dress as you normally would, or have some "Team Smith" (fill in your own last name there) jersey's made up in your wedding colors. Your photographer should have no trouble at all coming up with some adorable poses.
#2 - Game Ticket Save-The-Dates
Let all of your wedding guests know to mark their calendars by sending out "tickets" to your wedding for the save-the-date announcements. The theme can even be carried over to your wedding program, where you can list your wedding party's "team lineup."
#3 - Little Crowd PleasersThe youngest members of your wedding party can join in on the football-themed fun too. Let the ring bearer carry a football with the rings tied gracefully around it with a big ribbon. Your flower girl could drop confetti, like the kind that is shot out of cannons when a team wins a big game, or she could throw mini craft pom poms in festive colors.
#4 - Pom Pom Bouquets
A creative florist will most likely be able to make your bridal party's bouquets resemble the shape of a cheerleader's pom poms. That could make for some very "cheerful" group photographs.
#5 - Concession Stand
Cocktail hour is the perfect time to pull out all of your favorite foods from the snack counter at the stadium. Giant pretzels, nachos, popcorn, waffle fries, and maybe even some mini chili dogs will keep the crowd happy until dinner time.
#6 - Autograph Session
With a little searching, you should be able to find a light-colored football to use for your wedding guest book. If you need to use the classic dark brown kind, find metallic pens that will show up brightly on it. Set up a sign next to the football asking for all of your guests' "autographs."
#7 - Grand Entrance
Everyone at the wedding will definitely take notice if you make your grand entrance into the reception similar to how a football team enters the field. Your wedding party can enter first and line up, making a row foryou to run down. Once they are all in place, bring out a great big Mr. & Mrs. banner for the two of you to bust through, high-fiving your wedding party as you pass them by.
#8 - Halftime Show
The players get a break mid-game to rest. Give your wedding guests a break from the dance floor mid-reception by bringing in some added entertainment for them to enjoy. This can be as tame as a special guest singing a few songs, or a big production like a troupe of dancers performing all around the room.
#9 - Garter Pass
If you choose to do the classic bouquet toss and garter throw, let the groom play quarterback. After removing the garter, place it around a football and throw an inspired pass to the next groom-to-be.
#10 - A Winning Exit
Guests can cheer you on into your new life as husband and wife by shaking pom poms as you make your way to the getaway car. If you trust your friends and family to not throw them at you, they could even toss mini footballs in the air as you run past. It would look amazing in the wedding photographs.
It's not hard to incorporate something that you love into your wedding without making it look like a kids' party. It just takes a little creative thinking. Small details like those listed above can go a long way to making your Country Jewell wedding a memorable event for everyone involved.
