  • Wedding: December 2010

We’re getting married on our undergraduate alma mater’s campus!  But, our colors were blue and gold and we weren’t feeln’ that.  We have a historic building on campus and we arranged for tours of the building for our wedding guests all morning (which was only about $150!)  We considered making a “photo booth” with a backdrop of all our university’s gear stuck to it (think tshirts, pompoms, vintage flags, mascot stuff, etc…) and giving out guests props the were school colors and revelant….

I am a HUGE, loyal, fan of my alma mater but my fiance’ graduated from a different school (we met my senior year). We did get our DJ to play my fight song and our church just happened to be white with green doors/shutters…my school colors ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the idea of getting a cake in the shape of his school mascot and mine for our anniversary someday…or maybe even a family BBQ with our families this summer.

We both went to the same university and I’m now faculty there, so we’ll be having our reception at the Faculty Club on campus.  We’re not involving our school’s colors because they would completely clash with the decor of the club!

Fiance and I are both graduates of THE Ohio State University, though he graduated before I started.

We are giving out “A pair of buckeyes from a pair of Buckeyes” (school mascot rendered in chocolate and peanutbutter form”) for our favors. We also are playing one of the school’s unofficial songs (Hang on Sloopy) and dedicating it to our OSU friends.

Other than that, we’re 27 and 34 now and live in California, so we didn’t want to go too heavy on it.

About a year out of college, one of my FI’s fraternity brothers got married. The couple met at school (Duke) just like my Fiance and I did.

They had the wedding at the hotel across the street from campus and had all sorts of cute Duke touches. Her garter was Duke blue and had the Duke logo on it. All the tables were named after places at Duke instead of table numbers, and they had the bridal party (all duke alumni) come in to the Duke Fight Song.

It was all very cute.

My Fiance and I attended different colleges, but we came up with a compromise by using the main colors of both schools…dark red for mine, and dark purple for his. It works out because I love the dark jewel tones bc it gives off the romantic, lush look I was going for!

I was a member of the marching band in college…if all works out, I’m surprising my Fiance with a performance from them =)

We used our alma mater (University of Oklahoma) colors as our wedding colors, but the crimson and cream just happens to be my favorite colors as well. 

A lot of my friends have done groom’s cakes themed with the school though.
