Anything that you imagine in 2024, you can usually create. If basketball is a theme that represents a huge part of your life, your favorite hobby, or the sport you are most passionate about, then you can certainly make it your wedding theme.

Feel free to use ideas from this blog as a base for your dream wedding theme planning. Take some ideas, mend them to the way you envision, or let them inspire you to create your own great ideas. Happy planning!

Basketball Hoops

If you want your guests to be encouraged to play basketball, put a hoop out in the venue, with the venue's permission. A lot of gyms rent out their space for events, and you can ask to have the hoops lowered for your event after dinner. You can even provide unique basketballs that are handpainted to be wedding themed on websites such as Etsy

Instead of walking down the aisle in pumps, maybe opt in for a pair of Chucks. Besides, they are most likely much more comfortable!  This also allows you and your partner to adorably match since they offer unisex options!

Will You Sign Please?

While it would be great to get a signature from Michael Jordan or Lebron James, today we are asking for signatures from your guests! Instead of a guestbook, use a blank basketball! Check out this example from TheKnot.
