With the World Cup kicking off today, even I can’t escape thinking about the the so-called beautiful game right now. It’s fair to say I’m not a huge fan, but if you happen to be a footie fanatic, and your partner shares your passion, I’ve come up with loads of fun ideas for a football-themed wedding.
Football inspired weddings are a little bit tongue-in-cheek so you can have a whole lot of fun with this theme. How about walking down the aisle to the ‘Match of the Day‘ theme tune for starters?! Incorporate your team’s colours into your and your groom’s accessories, and you don’t have to dress your bridesmaids in football tops — you could again simply have them wear shawls and shoes in your team colours.
If you can manage to hold your ceremony at a football stadium (this Jewish wedding was held at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United!) there will be unlimited candid photo opps, but remember that at any venue, you can set up your wedding photos to be done in “team shot” style
Hire a table football game, create football ticket invitations, have a football wedding cake, use red and yellow cards as place settings, have flower arrangements in football boots, use football scarves as favours and decorations, name your tables after some of your favourite players, have a football themed table plan… and the fun doesn’t have to stop there!
Tell me about if you have a football or sporty themed wedding planned — I’d love to hear all about it in the comments section below!
