Themes That Didn't Make the Cut - Part 1

It's pretty much a given that I love me a good "Theme Party." I've had 27 years of birthday parties (coming up on 28) and I've yet to repeat a theme.  I fully support costume parties and LOVE celebrating holidays.  When it comes to my wedding...what theme will I choose?  I've come up with a few ideas.  These are the ones that didn't make the cut.

I'll be getting married right during the beginning excitement of March Madness!!! One of my most favorite times of year!  Personally, I think it's a bit lame the boys will be getting ready at the church in a room with a large flat screen tv with cable.  I will be in a room full of mirrors.  Any chance we can switch?! 

Basketball Tournament parties are so fun...bracket games, trivia, the last shots at the buzzer to ruin everyone's predictions!  They are great!  Why not have the biggest March Madness party ever...AT MY WEDDING?!  here is a little taste of what it would be like:

(my favorite is the basketball gumball machines as wedding favors...your welcome!)

For the reception:

well we'd probably have it in a gym...duh.  and bring in some lockers to line the wall
(we are going all out people).

and to create some cool coner seating for folks we could have little basketball couches:

table decor is pretty simple - basketball cupcake toppers, varisty letters with the new last name on it, basketball center pieces, etc.

a nice basketball wedding cake:

So, what do you think? Are you sad we aren't going to use this one? :)
Stay tuned for part 2 coming up soon.
If you have other theme suggestions (real or funny) I'd love to hear them!  They make show up on the blog...or as my birthday party theme!!!
