So you've decided to go a bit
of the more non-traditional route and plan a baseball themed
wedding, we think that's a fantastic idea! A themed wedding allows
the bride and groom to personalize their wedding day experience in a
way that allows for inclusion of something meaningful to you both
that can be a welcomed departure from the norm. Guests attending
your baseball themed wedding will marvel at the small touches you
incorporate into your baseball theme including wedding ceremony or
reception locations, your wedding vows, or the decorations that become
part of your day to pull the baseball theme together. These small
touches tend to put your guests at ease allowing them to quickly
feel more comfortable and participate in the baseball fan experience you're looking to provide. Some might think that having a sports themed
wedding means that you sacrifice the formality of the occasion or
compromise on the sanctity of the ritual. We disagree. We believe
that if planned properly, a baseball themed wedding can be an
elegant affair that draws on the baseball theme throughout the day
without being too overbearing. It all depends on the vision of the
married couple and in which direction they decide to go.
If you're flipping through this website, you're no doubt looking for
some inspiration or some great baseball themed wedding ideas to help you get started. The first hurdle you'll
have to overcome is the look and feel of the printed media for your
wedding. We're talking about wedding invitations,
save-the-dates, and wedding
programs, that's our forte. We have a creative staff of graphic
artists that can bring your vision to life. A baseball themed
save the date or a wedding invitation that's designed to look like a ticket from your
local ballpark is a great start. Couple that with a wedding program
in the mold of a gameday program, and you're well on your way to
establishing the look and feel of your baseball theme. Our baseball
themed wedding program design incorporates the people in your
wedding party as starters on your favorite professional baseball
team. They're listed at
the starting positions on a baseball field diagram and the program itself
draws on baseball themed graphics, text, and fonts to leave your
guests with the impression that they're in for a day at the
ballpark. We use your photos and ideas to craft a program and
invitation package that's personal and unique.
