A Team Effort

A Team Effort
by Susanne Kathol, Exclusively for Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®

Brides and grooms are bringing team spirit into their big day, including everything from their engagement and wedding date, to the location of the wedding and jewelry/accessories, ceremony décor and guest favors. Couples are commemorating special game dates or sports they enjoy together, and cheering on their favorite teams in winning style.

Wedding dates can be planned around meaningful sporting events, giving guests the opportunity to share in the sporting fun or all attend together. Receptions can include big screen televisions and a sports bar/tailgate atmosphere with a sports-related menu--think hot dogs, pretzels, popcorn and beer.

NCAA® Charms

The bridal party and others can show off their alma mater in jewelry or accessories, especially if friends all attended the same school. It's also fun to display some rivalry if the bride and groom support different teams. Shop an extensive selection of college charms here.

Sports Themed Charms

Sports-related charms offer an easy way to score special meaning in wedding jewelry. You can celebrate running a marathon or 5K together, or future plans to do so. A specific sport that you share can be used in jewelry designs, such as skiing, golf or tennis. Find a charm for any sport in Fire Mountain Gems and Beads' sports charm selection.

Sports teams can be recognized and used in bouquets, boutonnieres, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and cuff links for the bride and groom, wedding party and special guests. Jewelry designers can use team colors in pieces for a subtle sports theme or mix with charms for a bolder statement. Find any color imaginable in Fire Mountain Gems and Beads' selection of Swarovski® crystals, Preciosa Czech crystal and Celestial Crystal® beads. Charms can also embellish scrapbooking wedding pages, place card holders and invitations.

Support a favorite football, hockey or baseball team with an assortment of team charms for every fan. Design with leather or nylon cord for men's jewelry pieces or add sparkling beads for a more feminine look.

Personalize a sport statement further with printed images and glass cabochons or polymer clay creations. And, let guests remember the special day with a keychain or bookmark wedding favor that displays your favorite team.
