How to Decorate the Scoreboard Area

There’s nothing wrong with leaving our scoreboard area as is on your wedding day.  There are so many interesting, inexpensive, and innovative options, we thought we might give you a few ideas on how to liven up this space.

Photograph: Shoop’s Photography

The most budget-friendly option is to use the scoreboard to exhibit personal photos. A gallery of images of  yourselves, friends, family, travels, and past weddings of your loved ones can activate a space, and make it interactive as your guests mingle and view the photos. In essence, your walls become a conversation starter.

Shadelle and JR used a portion of the scoreboard to post some cute, wedding focused signage.  Letters and signs are easily found at Hobby Lobby, Michaels or even on Etsy. If you are the DIY type, which Shadelle and JR were, you can easily find some old frames, paint them and have someone with beautiful penmanship paint on a saying. The best thing about this? Not only is it budget friendly, but can be re-purposed at your home in a beautiful gallery wall including pictures from your wedding day!

Photograph: Two Twenty Photography

I love how Shadelle and JR incorporated a fun photograph along with their wedding hashtag. This is an easy  way  to communicate to guests your hashtag. This way they will know when posting their pictures of your wedding to social media – typically your friends will have some candid shots no one else will have!

Briana and Steven kept with their rustic, diy wedding theme by dressing up the scoreboard with lit letters and burlap banners. The heart made out of string lights is a sweet touch and super budget friendly.

A lot of our coupled choose to use wedding decor rental companies to help decorate The Pavilion. Why not opt to bring some of the decorations outside? If you can fit it in to your budget, the L O V E signs are always a hit! Nicole and Jared chose a beautifully rustic love sign from Roots Reclaimed.

Ramona Arnold from Simple Country Weddings, has an amazing collection of vintage and rustic pieces that can add a bit of glamour to your day, including the L O V E sign used above at Michelle and Adam’s wedding and Eliza and Keeane’s day. Both couples used the same sign, but used them to create a unique look for each of their respective wedding days.

Alison and Craig chose a lit up rustic sign that looked amazing both before the sun set and after.  The couple sourced their sign from Tin Roof Farmhouse and couldn’t be happier with that decision. From Alison, ” Our favorite detail was the huge wooden L-O-V-E letters that we rented from Tin Roof Farmhouse.  We went back and forth a lot on whether or not to rent them and then whether or not to have them outside (since there was rain in the forecast) and we were SO happy that we rented them and had them outside because so many people took pictures in front of them (couples, groups of friends, families etc.) and it made me so happy and contributed to our “love” theme!”

Happy Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day!  Whether your “dad” is your birth father, step dad, adopted dad, big brother, little brother, grandpa, uncle, or just a super awesome family friend who took you under his wing, today we salute him.  From all those times he played with you as a kid, or when he wiped your tears or taught you something new, to the times he tried to put the fear of God into anyone you brought home (at least my dad tried to do this) to that final walk down the aisle to give you away, he’s been the absolute best.  Thanks for everything, dad.  Happy Father’s Day to you!

Happy Mother’s Day!

In honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday,we are paying tribute to moms everywhere. Whether it’s the lady who gave birth to you or your mother in law, sister, aunt, grandma, great grandma, family friend, or even the neighbor lady down the street, we all have that special woman in our lives who we owe so much to. There is something so extraordinary about sharing your wedding day with your “mom”. It is just as much a life milestone for them as it is for you. To all the moms out there…for kissing our boo boos to helping us with our homework, for giving us dating advice to sending us off to college, and for teaching us about love and for watching us say “I do” to our one and only, we thank you!
