Hi guys! Welcome to my new series, “Wedding Style Wednesdays.”
My husband is a HUGE soccer fan. He’s a soccer player who lives and breathes soccer. Because of this, I couldn’t plan our wedding without incorporating soccer into the wedding details.
I didn’t want to take away from the beautiful tropical flower theme I had going. I’m also not a huge soccer fan, but I knew I had to find a way to tie it in somehow; it just had to be done as tastefully as subtly as possible. (In other words, no soccer player figurine on my cake, please!)
I searched Pinterest and Googled for soccer/wedding images, and nada! My inspiration for adding soccer was running dry– but I wasn’t going to give up. Literally days before the wedding, it finally came to me: Soccer Jerseys!!
Instead of having the wood signs hanging from our chairs that read, “Mr. & Mrs.” (like every other bride) we decided to make personalized soccer jerseys with our last name and wedding date and hang them from our chairs.
We picked the home and away Barcelona jersey since we visited the Barcelona stadium, Camp Nou, and Todd is a big Messi and Xavi fan.
His jersey had the month of the wedding: “05.” My jersey had the date of the wedding: “20.” I thought we executed the idea perfectly!
Later on in the evening, we even put them on! I slipped my jersey right over my dress and we danced the night away.
Since I had such a hard time finding any soccer inspiration, I wanted to make this post soccer specific. But…this idea would work just as well with any other sport!
Hope you enjoyed!
