Are you having a fishing theme wedding, but don't know where to start in choosing decorations, favors and working out other important details?
Although you could possibly take all of your wedding guests to your favorite fishing hole to witness your vows, it might be a bit impractical.
Therefore, let's get to work turning this sports themed wedding into a fisherman's paradise.
Have the bridesmaids dress in shimmery turquoise colored dresses to symbolize water. An ivory colored flower with turquoise tinted tips placed in their hair would be a nice accent.
The bride and groom should wear what they wish, however if you'd like to add a bit of humor to the wedding, the men "could" wear fishing hats and carry fishing poles, at least for a photo or two!
This is most likely where you'll have to use your imagination to come up with your own unique wedding invitations, but here are a few creative ideas.
For starters, check a craft store for some very nice fishing themed scrapbook paper. Also purchase good quality stock invitation paper in ivory or turquoise and cut it to the size that you want for your invitation. You could also purchase DIY wedding invitation kits to make the job easier.
Next, cut the fishing designed paper to fit the invitation stock paper and glue them together. Using a printer and vellum paper, print out the wording for your invitation so that it measures about a half inch smaller all around from the scrapbook piece. Carefully glue the vellum onto the scrapbook print backing and voila...you own unique fishing wedding invitation.
One other option is to use beach theme wedding invitations that feature boats and water.
The decorations that you choose should be related to fishing in some way - nets, fishing poles, buckets, canoes, fishing boats, lighthouses, and other such decor.
You'll want to thank your wedding guests for participating in your big fishing day celebration. These wedding favors are a nice touch.
