Here’s a wedding idea that will hit it out of the ball park! Get married at Chase Field in Phoenix where the Arizona Diamondbacks play! Begin your new life together at home plate. Theme weddings are a great way to incorporate your interests and personalities as a couple, and show your guests what you are all about.
There are so many ideas that can make your wedding lovely with a baseball theme when it comes to weddings. From cute little baseball themed ring bearers and flower girls to guestbooks that are bats (or make two jerseys with your names on them and have your guest sign them), baseball tickets that are wedding invitations and so much more!
Guests attending your baseball themed wedding will marvel at the small touches you can incorporate into your baseball theme including the wedding ceremony or reception locations, your wedding vows, or the decorations that become part of your day to pull the baseball theme together. Popcorn and pennants for centerpieces, baseball socks on the groomsmen, tickets to get in, a baseball cake and the Bride and Groom’s names on the billboard.
Get creative with the look and feel of the printed media for your wedding; wedding invitations, save-the-date cards, and wedding programs. You your imagination. The more you incorporate the theme into your wedding, the more fun you, and your guests, will have. Google “Baseball Theme Wedding” for lot of ideas. Don’t forget to check Pinterest.
A baseball themed save the date or a wedding invitation that’s designed to look like a ticket from your local ballpark is a great start. Couple that with a wedding program in the mold of a gameday program, and you’re well on your way to establishing the look and feel of your baseball theme.
Have the guys wear uniforms! If you’re strong on traditional tuxes, have them wear special baseball wedding ties or have them wear their jerseys underneath. Caps are a must for everyone in the bridal party. Peanuts and Cracker Jacks® are a must as favors.
A baseball bat will be a big hit at your baseball theme wedding and will have guests begging to sign your baseball bat guestbook instead of forgetting about it like most guestbooks. Have the DJ play, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” as the wedding party make their way to home plate. During the ceremony have the Wedding Officiant stand up for a 7th inning stretch and have all the guests sing, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.”
A baseball theme wedding is one to have fun with whether you go all out or just give nod to your favorite sport with little details here and there. If you want a wedding that your guests will remember, perhaps a baseball themed wedding might be for you. It’ll bring a big cheer from everyone!
A little digging on Chase Field’s website reveals a basic budget-estimating tool for hosting events such as weddings or give them a call. Arizona Diamondbacks Main Number: 602-462-6500. By the way, you can have a baseball theme wedding at any wedding venue you choose, not necessarily at Chase Field.
