College Themed Weddings

Are you wondering how to incorporate your college colors into your wedding?

As you all know, I met my husband while I attended the BEST COLLEGE EVER- The University of Florida ( I might be biased, but the GATORS are really the best =) ), and many young couples do meet in college these days.

My husband and I are VERY BIG Gator Fans, so how did we incorporate Orange and Blue in our Wedding? We had a grooms cake at our Friday night rehearsal dinner that had our Gator colors and a BIG Gator on it!! I think this is the most common way couples incorporate their alma mater.

Here are some other great ways to incorporate your wedding colors?
-Signature drinks
-Bridesmaid dress/ Best Man Ties
-Wedding Cake Toppers
-Wedding Favors
-Getting called in by your band/DJ to your Teams Fight Song
-Having a sign in book in your college colors

Check out Weddings On the French Riviera where I found all these great Orange and Blue Wedding Ideas.

Are you planning to or have you incorporated your college colors into you wedding? I would love to hear your ideas. Enjoy!


  1. Awesome. I am planning to incorporate my LSU colors in to favors. This gives me inspiration that it can be done. Purple is a tricky color!

  2. Boo Gators!

    I'm wearing an FSU garter and we're also having an FSU groom's cake at the rehearsal.

  3. We incorporated our engagement party with our colors..it made it fun and it was a great theme.. GO Alabama!!!

    P.S.- I watched the UF game this weekend. I hope Tebow is ok!

  4. Yea, girl!
    GO GATORS!!!
    Chomp chomp!

    Hubby is UF alumn!

  5. Go Blue! My FI and I are huge Michigan fans, we're doing maize and blue for our wedding colors and even got custom invitations that look like Wolverine Football tickets (sportsthemedweddings.com). Can't wait til October!

  6. Uh, oh--War Eagle....but I do know where all of us can find collegiate wedding garters. GartersandSuch.com has all the best teams....even the--gators..
