Hoping for a Golf-themed wedding? It can be done!
October 14, 2016
If you and your husband or wife-to-be are golfing fanatics, then why not extend that interest to your wedding day. With a bit of creative thinking you can use your sporting interests to create a fun and thematically relevant backdrop to the ceremony that you’ll always remember. Here are a few ideas.
Start with the cake. Even if you do nothing else to hint towards your hobby, why not design a wedding cake with a golf theme. With some green icing, a bunker, a few flags and some baking imagination you can come up with some amazing golf cakes. If you’re really creative, how about a spherical golf ball cake. Guests will certainly have reasons to take lots of photos.
Perhaps turn up to the reception or leave together, in a golf cart. Whether you have an indoor or outdoor reception, this could be designed to look like a mock up of a golf course, with table numbers marked with golf flags and green as a prevalent colour of tablecloths and serviettes.
Think creatively about the outfits everyone will wear. Argyle golf socks are striking and distinctive way to increase the theme in the ushers and male wedding party members. Other traditional golfing clothes can be incorporated - like a green blazer for the groom, like the champion of the Masters golf tournament gets to wear.
Bridesmaids dresses in green are an obvious choice. But you might find that touches of colour are more effective than making everything green. And how about some specially designed golf umbrellas.These will be a must-have for the golf-themed wedding photographs. Choose matching ones for a uniform look, and to keep the guests dry while they’re waiting outside. Or choose a contrasting colour for the bridal party, so they can stand out from the crowd.
At the end of the day this is your wedding, so have fun with it. Go for golf-related wedding music from sports television programmes, and give a page boy his own miniature set of clubs to wheel down the aisle. Oh, and make sure everyone has a great time at the 19th hole - in the bar when it’s all over!
