Aggie Weddings that Don't Bleed Maroon

In the city of College Station, Texas there is no shortage of school spirit. It's no surprise that many Aggie couples want to express this pride as they profess their love. However, you don’t want to bleed maroon at the altar! (It would ruin the dress, after all.) Even though themed events can be beautiful, an over emphasized subject matter is not for everyone. Here are our suggestions on how to create a lovely wedding that incorporates "I Do's" and hullabaloos!

Let guests know about your upcoming union with a save the date card (especially if many guests will need to travel or the wedding is on a holiday weekend)! If you choose to skip this option, invitations are a must. Either of these announcements would be the perfect opportunity to share a photo of you and your man "marooned out." You could also show a romantic picture under the Century Tree or near the pillars of the Administration Building!

The ceremony should remain a special moment, (“No, Reveille cannot be our flower girl”) but pops of maroon would maintain your overall theme. A striking bouquet of burgundy, ties of maroon, and pomanders of this shade decorating the aisle, like these from, will tie everything together.

The reception is your time to let loose and celebrate! (“No, we aren’t having yell practice instead of our first dance.”) BRIDES magazine suggests that if your man absolutely cannot go without his favorite team on the big day, have your wait staff cater to your party in jerseys. The playful idea is reminiscent of your theme, but not too dramatic. This Aggie garter from helps you show spirit in a discrete way!

Many bakeries here in town will even create an Aggie Ring, Bonfire, or Aggie-themed groom's cake!

On the other hand, we still appreciate those Ag events that don't lack any 12th man spirit! Did you know you can even get married on Kyle Field and rent out the Zone Club for your reception? WHOOP! Contact the Zone Club at 979-862-5378 for more information.

Congratulations on your Aggie wedding! We hope these tips help you enjoy a slight dose of maroon, even if it is only 2%!
