Dream Team: Kick Off Football Season with Team-Themed Wedding Accessories
With both college and pro football kicking off within the next couple of weeks, it's time to get your game face on and cheer on your favorite gridiron team. But don't think for a second that you have to put your team pride on the bench for your wedding day — there are plenty of ways to incorporate your alma mater or professional favorites into your nuptials. From cufflinks to presents for your pals to cake toppers to all-out fun photo booth props, team spirit can be alive and well no matter where you say “I Do.” We rounded up three touchdowns worth of cool, fun and spirited football goodies for your wedding day.
Food and Drink
Toast to your love with etched champagne flutes while keeping in mind that you're a house divided when it comes to the gridiron. Carry around your own secret stash of hooch or gift your crew with their own engraved vessel. Everyone loves a beer koozie — even better when it's got glitter, is personalized and boasts your team colors. A customizable silhouette cake topper is both classy and fun.
Proclaim your love for your partner and your team with a logo-emblazoned wedding band. A sleek neck tie shows off your colors without being obnoxious. Keep your team spirit under wraps until your wedding night with a garter in your alma mater's colors. Chic cufflinks show where your allegiance lies. A colorful tutu is perfect for the littlest football fan / flower girl. Add subtle sparkle with a glittery headband.
A little team spirt goes a long way with leather cord bracelets. A sleek belt stays true to your crew. A small but bold lapel pin keeps your team front and center. Add a dapper touch with a tie bar. A patterned bow tie stays on-trend and on-point.
A sign can go from wedding decor to home decor. Let your guests know when the game starts with gridiron-themed stationery. A two-tone football in team colors can serve as a guest book alternative. Painted centerpieces will be the center of attention. On-trend tissue paper tassel garlands help bring all the decor together.
