    There are sports fans, and then there are Sports Fans. The fans who paint themselves in their favorite team’s colors before the game, the fans that follow their team to wherever they go, and the fans who use their favorite team as the theme for everything in their life.

    Those are the kinds of dedicated fans who would theme their own weddings after their favorite sports teams.

    Literally, there are couples each year that use certain sports teams as the theme to their weddings.

    Here is a list of 10 of the best sports themed weddings of all-time.

    Here is a couple who so loved the Chicago White Sox that they decided to have elements of their wedding themed after the baseball team.

    Many of the bridesmaids’ dresses were black, and in combination with the bride’s white dress, this created the traditional black and white color scheme of the White Sox.

    The couple was also able to incorporate the field where the White Sox play into their wedding as well. All of the wedding photos were taken in the dugout and on the actual field.

No. 9 Fishing Theme Wedding

    This is not the typical sport most would expect people to choose when planning a sports themed wedding.

    However, fishing is a sport that many people enjoy, so it is only natural that someone would have made this the theme of their wedding.

    The decorations and photos from this wedding are all fishing theme related. Even the cake topper had the bride using a fishing pole to catch her groom.

    This was inventive, but in a sort of classy way and not a too over the top cheesy way.

No. 8 Hockey Theme Wedding

    This wedding was inspired by the couples favorite hockey team; the Detroit Red Wings.

    In their wedding pictures, the groom dons a Red Wings jersey and by looking at the flowers, it seems other elements of the wedding were themed around the team as well including the colors and flowers used in the wedding.

No. 7 Clemson Theme Wedding

    Many people have fond memories and strong ties to their college. This couple chose to express that love for Clemson University through their wedding reception.

    The lights and linens choices reflect the school colors. The groom’s cake even had tiny orange paw prints all over it, as well as what appear to be tiny footballs on it as well.

    This was cute and tasteful way to theme this wedding reception after Clemson University.

No. 6 Chicago Bears Theme Wedding

    While the Bears are usually a disappointing team, this wedding looks like it was anything but disappointing.

    The Bears theme was tied into the whole wedding in an elegant way. The team colors seem to have been used as the primary colors for the wedding, and jerseys and other blue and orange accessories decorated the reception hall after the ceremony.

    Not only is this a beautiful wedding, but it is an awesome sports themed wedding as well.

No. 5 Green Bay Packers Theme Wedding

    This couple went all out dedicating their wedding to their favorite sports team.

    The groom was married in a Packers jersey while the bride wore a white dress with green and gold banded trim all over it. The couple even had the bridesmaids wear dresses that looked like cheerleading outfits.

    This is a display of true dedication, and could only be for a sports fanatics wedding.

    The Blackhawks have seen a lot of success this year, and have cemented themselves as many couples favorite hockey team.

    This was a wedding for someone who obviously really loved this team. The wedding colors are red, black, and white and the cake was shaped like a hockey puck with the Blackhawks logo on it.

    There were even jewelry and other accessory items chosen to represent the Blackhawks theme in this wedding.

    This looks like a fun and creative way to celebrate a couple’s marriage, and the Blackhawks winning the Stanley Cup.

    People either love the Lakers or they hate them.

    A wedding like this is obviously for someone who really and truly loves them.

    This purple and gold wedding pays homage to the three-time NBA championship team. With the colors, decorations and basketball themed favors, this is a classy way to show the couple’s love for their favorite basketball team, without making it into a cheesy and tacky affair.

    This wedding was Ohio State themed.

    The cake, colors, flowers, invitations, decorations, and even the bride’s shoes were all designed to be part of the overall college football theme.

    This wedding is great because it now only allowed the couple to show their love for Ohio State, it also allowed them to show that love in a classy and not overly tacky way.

    This is the story of a man who so loved football, that he convinced his fiancée to let him theme there whole wedding like a professional football game.

    According to this couples' website, the invitations looked like NFL tickets and the wedding programs were designed to look like NFL game day programs.

    The decorations consisted of PVC field goals and candy filled penalty markers and other football themed decorations.

    The couple even had their wedding pictures taken at Ford Field home of the Detroit Lions.

    This couple had so much fun planning this theme wedding, they decided to create a website to help other football obsessed couples to find ideas and inspirations to do the same.
