Planning Your NASCAR Themed Wedding
Whether you want a traditional wedding or a
quirky ceremony, you can inject your personality into every aspect
of your wedding day by choosing a unique wedding theme. The best way to choose a wedding theme is to
think about what you and your fiancé have most in common. If your
family members are die-hard Dale Earnhardt or Jeff Gordon fans, and
you have been lucky enough to find someone special who shares your
passion for NASCAR, then you might consider having a professional
stock car race-themed wedding.
If you are planning a large celebration or a simple, private family
affair, you will still need to decide upon a location, date, colors,
cake and decorations. You can incorporate your love for NASCAR into
each of these items, making the theme prominent or offering simple,
subtle touches throughout the event. And, don’t forget to check your
calendar when setting the wedding date. You might find it difficult
to persuade your guests to attend the party if you don’t provide a

wedding invitation may be just the thing to pull
all of your wedding preparations together.
Here are some additional creative ideas for planning an exciting
NASCAR themed wedding that will provide a personalized touch on your
Ceremony Locations: If you are lucky enough to
live near a NASCAR race track, contact the manager to ask about holding your big
day on the starting line before the race begins. Or, search for a local race
track in your city if you are not already a member of one. Your guests can cheer
you on from the grandstands.
Unique Guestbook Ideas: Do you worship Dale
Earnhardt, Jr. or consider Jeff Gordon the greatest driver of all time? Purchase
a life-size cardboard cutout of your favorite driver or add their number to a
racing helmet, then hand your guests a metallic marker to sign their wedding
Groomsman Pit Crew: Multiple groomsman armed with
breath mints and Binaca, a bottle of cologne, mirror and comb, lint brush and a
shoe shine kit, all primp the groom simultaneously at multiple intervals
throughout the day. When the groom hits the start button on his stopwatch,
the pit crew springs into action.
Cakes come in all shapes, sizes and colors, but if
you want a traditional wedding cake, you can still celebrate your love for
NASCAR by ordering the groom’s cake in the shape of your favorite racer’s car or
your favorite track.
Food: Trim costs by serving authentic race day
food, including barbeque, hamburgers and hot dogs, wrapped in checkered sleeves
that are personalized with your names and wedding date or favorite racer’s
number. If you want to serve more traditional food, consider having the
bartender serve “King Petty Whiskey” or “Winston Cup Wine”.
Music: You can have some fun with the wedding day
music by incorporating race-theme songs into the processional, recessional,
first dance or throughout the reception. Try songs such as “Life is a Highway”
by Rascal Flatts or “She Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC.
End of Ceremony: Have the bridesmaids and
groomsmen form a line and hold out checkered flags as you make your way back
down the aisle at the end of the ceremony. Then, hop in a pace car and take a
victory lap around the track.
Wedding Favors: Your guests will appreciate
receiving a custom-designed NASCAR wedding invitation pit pass to commemorate your special day, while your
groomsmen will admire a custom key ring featuring a checkered flag and their
favorite driver’s number. If you are buying a gift for the groom, look for a
collectible Matchbox car or have a chrome or silver key ring imprinted with the
message, “You drive me crazy”.
