We are getting married at a golf course (it’s gorgeous…it’s a golf course on the lake!)…but we are also doing a TML theme….I want it to be fun and relaxed, but not tacky….so hard to do this, there is a fine line…. so here are the things we are doing:
Hockey jersey for a guest book
Card box shaped like a stanley cup
place cards will be “hockey tickets”
little straws with hockey sayings
favors will be cookies in the shape of maple leafs with our initials with these tags:
then I want THIS for our cake stand
But it will have a regular small cake on top with an initial cake topper, and then cupcakes with really pretty cupcake wrappers that I just made….(i think that’s a good balance of hockey and pretty wedding cake)
Will be used for making us kiss….I am painting it and making it look nice, then attaching hockey sticks in an x in front (to make it harder to get the ball in)…..
Our table numbers are going to be jersey numbers…..
and I am considering doing a DIY photo booth that will be hockey themed…..
Too much? or just right?

I love the cake stand for your theme. I would skip the net thing, because it seems a bit over the top. Your theme so unique though, I bet it’ll be a great wedding!

Sounds good! I think you have simple touches, without it looking lke a party. Oh, and I can’t show this to my dh cause all I’ll hear will be, “why do they get to have a ML wedding and we couldn’t!!!”

I love the hockey theme! That’s so awesome. I wish everyone would’ve let me had my reception at a Flyers game. Hahaha.

I should say that the coordinator at the golf course got super excited when I told her of the theme! LOL…..
and thanks! I really like the hockey net….i plan on having it moved after the initial dinner part….

I love it – and I say keep the net. At golf course weddings I think people usually now expect to have to putt to get the B&G to kiss so I think the net will be a fun change up to that!!
I have seen a B&G get married at an arena near here and he was dressed a la don cherry and she had a full length ML jersey dress (fitted) on. They were skates on the ice for it. You are MILES away from that level 🙂

Hmm, as a Montrealer I would change it from the Leafs to the Habs… just kidding–cute theme. I love the idea for place cards and your cupcake stand is awesome!

@Marie2013: Yeah and I’d do an Oilers theme hahaha.
I think it’s a cute idea. I guess I’d just make sure that the more fancy touches don’t clash w. the sports theme. That might be hard to do. Love the cake stand.

I think it’s a cute idea if you are both fans. I especially love the cake stand.

Cute. I love the theme. Sounds like a lot of fun!
We had a hockey goal set up to get us to kiss too. We used the mini sticks and road hockey balls to make it more challenging. Instead of doing a traditional hockey net, I made this:
Our guests loved it!

Besides the obligatory “leafs suck” I think your touches are understated and simple
My only slight concern is if that’s a full size net it might block sight lines a little bit especially if you also want it to be in full view. What about those mini souvenir sticks and a child sized net. Extra bonus is that even with the hockey sticks crossing it’s pretty easy ta make a shot from a few feet from a full size net. However if you guys just want to make out all night…. It’s perfect!

@smcs28: Can I just say that this is Amazing!
I can’t let my FI see this, he’s a die hard leafs Fan and would be so jealos of your concept!
All I’m doing for him is sewing a Little TML to my veil as my something blue…!
The Goal is genius!!

Glad FH is sleeping right now…I WILL be hiding this from him. We already have all the versions of Team Canada and ML jerseys hanging in our closet alongside multiple ML hats, ML socks and even an ML leather jacket that he wears all the time! I do think the Stanley Cup with an ML theme is kind of sad though…jk
That being said your ideas are awesome including the net. What about adding the targets on each corner so they have to hit one? That will increase difficulty and make it much more fun to watch. If you’re having young kids than just have them have to shoot it in and targets for adults.
