From the invitations, to the wedding attire, through the ceremony and into the reception, you can add golf to the celebration. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Invitations to announce your nuptials can be classy and fun. By using downloaded golf clipart images and invitation templates from Weddingclipart.com, you can create professional looking invitations for a fraction of the price. Use specialty papers from your local craft store in combination with your clipart to create invitations, programs, reception menus, stationery and Thank You notes that reflect your golf theme.
When considering a wedding ceremony site, you have several options. The traditional church or synagogue is always at the top of the list, but for a golf theme wedding, consider moving your wedding outdoors.
A country club is a great place to have a wedding. It's even better if you are a golfer! Since country clubs were built around gorgeous golf courses, you cannot go wrong in choosing to have your wedding here. With the golf course as your background, consider having your ceremony at the clubhouse or on the patio with your guests dressed in their golfing best.
After the ceremony, head off to the links with your bridal party and guests in tow for nine holes before the reception. Alternatively, have your reception be a golf tournament with great food, golf themed favors and prizes for the tournament winners! This may require a quick change from your wedding attire into your golf clothes, but the fun you will have will be well worth it. If you do this, be sure to get your formal photos taken prior to the ceremony so that there will be as little delay as possible following your wedding ceremony.
If you think that would be a bit much for your guests, consider a miniature golf course for your reception following a traditional wedding ceremony elsewhere. This may seem silly for your style, but it does allow non-golfers and children to participate. If you are having your wedding and reception at home, you might consider setting up your own mini golf course or putting green for those who would like to play at the reception.
Since the game of golf originated in Scotland, some couples choose to wear traditionally Scottish wedding attire. The groom and his groomsmen wear kilts and short, formal jackets, and the bride and bridesmaids wear Celtic styled gowns. If you prefer a more traditional approach, consider wearing a golf themed item in your hair or on your garter. Your groom can incorporate his love of the game into his apparel by wearing a tie that has a golf themed print on it and using a golf club as a walking stick.
If you choose to write your own vows, you can intersperse them with golf jargon. Assuming you both love golf and would not be offended by this, this is a creative way to express your love for one another. You can also write your wedding programs, menu, and Thank You notes to your guests in this manner.
When decorating for your reception, remember that golf clipart images can be used on banners, tablecloths and napkins too. By using balloons, streamers, candles, your favorite flowers, and creative centerpieces, you can bring a festive mood to any location. Consider designing mini greens in the center of each table with flowers or paper, and making small flags with numbers on them to number your tables for your guests. Add a basket of personalized golf balls and tees that your guests can take home as favors.
With the bride and groom on the top of your wedding cake holding golf clubs, no one in the room will doubt your love of the game or your devotion to each other. A golf theme wedding is sure to be par for a spectacular marriage course.
