So my FH to be is a fireman & EMT he has been doing the fireman thing for about 15 years and doing it as a true paid profession for 8 years.
I would like to pay a little tribute to him and his profession in our wedding ….
Does anyone have any ideas of how to tie this in?
We are already tieing it into our cake with having the groom a fireman on the bottom climbing a ladder to the top of the cake where there shall be a bride.. But i thought it might be nice to incorporate a few other touches somehow

What about giving those fun plastic helmets to your younger guests? Or using them in a photobooth? You could name your tables Ladder Co.s! Like Ladder Co 5 instead of Table 5. Or put small logos on the escort cards, like the seal or ladder/axe X that I’ve seen. What about making your own logo – using your monogram?

What about a groom’s cake shaped like a helmet or a truck?

You could make a photobooth with a backdrop out of cardboard. It could be a brick burning building with windows where people would stick their heads/bodies out. You could all sorts of funny props.

You can use his helmets for decoration.
For a money dance have people place money in the helmet
Collect cards with the helmet
Grooms cake in fire hat/truck/etc

How about as favors donating to a firemans charity? Then you could create the card with your husbands deparment logo and a little information about why you donated.

Grooms cake is a good one! Also the donating to charity is a good one, or perhaps a burn victims charity? I think that would be really touching.
