If you’re dreaming about a collegiate theme for your wedding, an outdoor venue is a smart choice for the couple who likes to be a little sporty and fun. Whether the two of you met on campus or just like to flaunt your school pride, here are some ideas for an academic look.
Reasons for picking a collegiate theme: Harking back to your college years provides a personal and meaningful touch. Maybe you and your best friends all attended the same school or you’re a couple who’s blending together your different experiences and individual histories. Plus, a school theme is timeless so you might want to use it to create a tradition for future anniversaries.
School day details for your wedding: An academic theme is relatively easy to carry out, and there are lots of affordable options for decorating. Start with your school colors or a generic scheme heavy on the royal blue, gold, and maroon. Put your school crest on invitations, napkins, and the top of a cake. Create food stations with some favorite snacks from your student days like breakfast cereal and popcorn. Have a giant cut-out of your school mascot for taking pictures with. Add books, binders and blackboards to your decor. Stuff pencil cases and ramen noodle packages into your wedding favor bags.
