Hey everyone, …I hope I’m not the only one on here who has done this!!
This has been one of the biggest things in the planning. I’m a Firefighter/First Responder, and FI is a Firefighter/First Responder and Tow truck driver so I’m wanting to incorperate all of this into our wedding.
Right now we have these plans for the Cake Topper, Cake Cutter (an axe LOL), the Wedding Vehical, my Garter, and Photos.
So ladies that have an FI/SO or themself who are in the Emergency Service, how are you including this on your big day???
Can’t wait to see!

Cute! FI is an EMT/medic and part time cop… as are a LOT of our guests. We’re not including anything into the day for this… but I feel confident if anyone gets sick or hurt we’ve got LOADS of people ready to help 🙂

@thewheelsonthebus: That’s just like our wedding! We will have over 100 present Firefighters/EMTs and another 20 or so retired Firefighters…so we are set if anything happens! LOL

Ditto here! Except FI is the only one. We are having some of the guys at his station bring down his engine for pictures. We are also having an axe to cut the cake 🙂
I think other than that the garter is the only other thing.

@Fire: Good to know there’s another one on here!! 🙂
I forgot to add, I might be getting a Fire Truck groom’s cake done as well for FI…so many ideas, so little time 🙂

He is wearing his uniform for the ceremony and reception.. Along with his buddies who are in the Force as well. I am wearing a garter with handcuffs..
I am doing lots of cupcakes with a small cake on top.. So the mini cake on top I am thinking of getting a cake topper with a wax mold that looks like us and with him in his uniform.. and on top of the cupcakes I wanting to have a variety of 3D stetsons in fondant, handcuffs, and the logo as chocolate piping toppings. (Ideally have to find someone local that can do it).
And we are having an honor guard and having his buddies hold the lances for us to go through for the ceremony.
There might be other things I can incorporate..? Maybe something to do with the card box.. Napkins could have some kind of logo too. Don’t know if I want to play the “bad boys” song yet 😉 See if you can incorporate that into your favors too?

Instead of normal favors could you make a donation to some sort of charity have to do with emergency responders on behalf of your guests?

FI is a firefighter so I want to incorporate that into our table numbers. So far our colour theme is black and white Damask with Teal, (I haven’t totally decided on that yet, but more than likely that is what we will keep).
I am thinking of getting black and white pictures of vintage fire trucks and matting them on black cardstock. Then I will make black sparkly numbers and adhere them in the bottom corner with that 3D adhesive so the numbers sort of “stand off” the picture. I am hesitant to add any colour to the pictures just because red is not one of our colours. I will then put the numbers in the table number holders provided by the venues.
How are you guys incorportating their profession into your garter? I am very curious about this!
I will probably also get a grooms cake of a helmet or firetruck or something.
