Planning the Wedding Ceremony & Reception

Sports Themed Wedding Ceremony IdeasTake a moment and picture your most ideal wedding ceremony. We're guessing from your visit to this site, that your perfect wedding is a sports themed wedding. When we decided to have our sports themed wedding, we found that there was surprisingly very little information available to us. We scoured the internet and wedding magazines to no avail.  We simply could not find a single, solid sports themed wedding resource. So after putting a significant amount of time and energy into researching all the different aspects of this particular theme, we decided to put the information and ideas together into an interactive sports-themed wedding website. Our goal is to make sure that dedicated sports fans who wish to include their favorite sport in their ceremony and/or reception will now have a one-stop resource for all sports themed wedding ideas and suggestions. Please see our pages on cakes and centerpieces to get you motivated and get those creative juices flowing. We encourage other sports fans, who have had, or are planning on having their own sports-themed wedding, to write in and share your ideas. Please feel free to send in your photos and tell us what you did to make your wedding ceremony and reception reflect the love of your favorite team.

The Wedding Ceremony

Sports are obviously a big part of your life, so whether you spend your Saturdays watching hockey, or your sick days watching the action behind home plate, this is who you are and you should be proud.

Make it completely you, completely personal and feel free to share with us some of your unique ideas and photos for a sports themed wedding ceremony.   We'll happily add your thoughts and photos to the site.
