Baseball Wedding Theme

If you were able to meet with one of our consultants we would be able to ask you a few questions to find out exactly what you have in mind for your Baseball Wedding Theme.  However, it has been our experience to find that most brides have one common question. "How do I have a Baseball Wedding & Reception that doesn't look like a Baseball Awards Banquet"?  Here we will suggest some ideas and you can choose how much or little to incorporate.

The key to pulling off a coordinated event: Evoke your theme throughout the affair, it should be the subtle thread that ties everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu, cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept. Then, get as creative as you can!

The motif is the visual representation of your theme, which is created by the use of objects or symbols. If you use a "Baseball" theme incorporate the use of Diamonds to represent the baseball diamond and Pearls to represent the baseball. These symbols may be repeated on your invitations, guest book & pen, ring pillow, flower girl basket, toasting glasses, programs, plates, and decorations.

A baseball theme may also suggest tickets, bats, mitt, helmet, uniform, cleats, peanuts, Cracker Jacks, popcorn, hot dogs, lemonade, Coke in classic bottles, vintage, baseball cards, vendors, Take Me Out To The Ballgame, Root, Root, Root, Ballpark...

Develop your motif using this list of words related to the theme or brainstorm your own list to create your pool of ideas. This list is very important for generating ideas that can be applied to all areas of the event (engagement party, bachelor & bachelorette parties, luncheons, the ceremony and reception).

Locations:

In Houston the ideal place for your baseball theme wedding is Minute Maid Park, it combines the feel of an classic old-time park with the amenities of modern ones with a number of venues to accommodate 100 to 800 guests or more.

Colors:

We would suggest that you use white and ivory or bronze and blush for your colors. Or you may want to use the colors of your favorite team.

Invitations:

For a formal wedding invitations featuring pearls would add an elegant touch.

For a semi-formal or casual wedding give guests a hint of what’s to come with wedding invitations that resemble baseball admission tickets.

The Ceremony:

We have had a few brides that want to go all out with this theme, choosing to have there wedding ceremony on a baseball diamond, preacher standing on the pitcher's mound, bridesmaids on the third base line and groomsmen on the first base line. The groom waiting at home plate, and when the bride comes out they walked up to the pitcher's mound together.

If the wedding ceremony will take place outside hang pomanders (kissing balls) of white & ivory carnation down from a wedding arch & trees. Tie flower orbs of white & ivory carnation to chairs.

Programs done with baseball wording.. like The Starting Lineup for the bridal party and a head shot of each party member with there vital stats.

In addition to that gorgeous engagement ring, amp up the bling by donning a diamond-accented wedding gown with lines so sleek, all eyes are on you. Keep your hair simple and chic, but tuck in a few sparkly hair pins. Don't forget to strut your stuff with diamond-studded sandals or deliciously retro shoe brooches.

For your Bridal Bouquet choose traditional blooms (carnations, roses, peonies in whites and ivory) add pearl pin accents or give your blooms a sparkling center with Swarovski-studded pins and picks. Don't forget to add a rhinestone-studded monogram to your bouquet wrap.

Have your bridesmaids carry posy bouquets of white and ivory carnations and roses.

Have the Flower Girl carry a pomander of white & ivory carnations and spray roses. A treasured mitt makes a wonderful ring pillow.

Add a vintage feel to the wedding by having the ring bearer wear knickers.

Instead of the traditional unity candle, use a ball shaped candle in the center, instead of a pillar candle.

If you want to add a little whimsy you could wear baseball cleats as your shoes. Makes for some adorable photos, when the photographer takes a shot of just the bride & grooms feet.

And for fabulous photos, exit under a shower of pennants .... or ask your groomsmen to line the chapel steps so you can duck beneath an "arch of bats" as husband and wife.

The Reception:

Pennants with the guests name and table number pinned to a length of clothes line between two trees.

Have guests autograph a baseball bat instead of using a traditional guest book. Be sure to have markers available.

Instead of using table numbers on reception tables, name each table after members of your favorite baseball team or if you want to add a vintage feel name them after players in the baseball "Hall of Fame".  For the escort card table have cards made with a picture of the player on one side and on the other side put the guests name, "The Reggie Jackson" Table and Game Date (your wedding date).

Decorations & Flowers:

A baseball shaped ice sculpture with flowers frozen inside for your buffet table, head table or even on guest tables.

A topiary with a ball of white carnation or roses to represent a baseball for centerpieces.

A ball of white carnations or roses setting on a square sheet of wheat grass with diamond-shaped tealights.

A floral ring of grasses with a clear wide mouthed glass vase or oversized brandy snifter in the center of the ring.  Fill your containers with peanuts and top with a couple of small pennants.

Attach a baseball bat to a base and add a flower ball to the top.  Or use wood candle holders in 3 different sizes with candles or a flower ball on top of each one.

Napkins folded in a diamond shape with a single  Baseball Gumball placed on top. For Baseball Candy! Shop at CandyWarehouse.com

Use round paper lanterns in the center of the dance floor since they look like baseball.

Set a silver & glass pedestal decanter filled with lemonade on a buffet table. Float lemon slices at the top.

Set clear favor bags on the table filled with popcorn and peanuts.

Dress up your tables with elegant vintage baseball cards — or simply name them after leading lights from your favorite team.

The Cake:

Don’t forget the apple pie! Not a fan of cake, serve apple pie, cut the pie like you would do a traditional wedding cake and serve guests individual apple tarts.  Place a set of Home Run figurines on the table next to the pies or have your wedding cake decorated with red stitching to resemble a baseball and use Home Run figurines on top. Another option is a cake made in a  diamond shape.

Candy Bar

Set-up a candy bar featuring old fashioned (Nostalgic) candy you enjoyed as a child and Baseball candies. Try things like: Old Fashioned Peanut Brittle Squares, Boston Baked Beans, Salt Water Taffy, Double Bubble Bubblegum, Zagnuts, Gum Drops, Hard Candy Sticks, Jawbreakers, Double Bubble Big Slugger Baseball Bats, Milk Chocolate Baseballs, Gumball Baseball Bats, Baseball Hard Candy Lollipops, MLB Team Baseball PEZ Dispenser, Baseball Mints, Bubble Gum Sports Whistles, Homerun Baseball Gumballs, Candy Baseballs. Place gumballs into Gumball Dispensers.

The Favors: 

Great for dance floor giveaways, these Baseball Tambourines  or  Baseball Maracas can be given out by your DJ between sets of music to keep your dance floor hopping--you'll score a home run at your reception. Decorate with ribbons in your wedding colors.

Have a great baseball reception, keep your dance floor hopping when your DJ passes out full size plastic Baseball Hat  for your guests to dance the night away in, they'll have a great time. The Baseball Cap can also be turned upside down and used to serve dry snacks or add a floral arrangement.

  • Baseball Beads

Special Touches:

For Cocktail Hour

For a twist on the traditional cocktail hour, serve foods generally found at sporting events: popcorn, peanuts, Cracker Jack, Coke in classic bottles, Ballpark franks, nachos, beer… The carts make these fabulous. You get the idea!

Waiter going round and passing out cute little baseball candies and cookies. It reminds you of someone going down the isles at the game selling sweets.

For the non-drinkers, serve up personalized bottled water ... and classic Coke in glass bottles. This will get guests cheering for days.

A fun addition to cocktail hour? Mock up some "sports news sections" to take to the printers, with headlines starring you and your honey: Baseball's Winningest Couple Returns To [Hometown]

Baseball themed music incorporated with other music selections. Use your imagination and have a ball.

Bartenders dressed as umpires, waiters dress as food vendors.
