My fiance' and I are going to TRY to get married next year after fire season is over. Anybody married to a fire fighter knows what Im talking about! We are eloping but would like to have a fun firefighter themed reception. Does anyone know where to get little fireman hats to use as wedding favors that we could fill with candy or almonds- Thanks!
Go to this site. They have 99 cent mini fireman hats!
I Hope I can still help!

Your little hats got me thinking about a gift I made for our fire department as a Christmas decoration. It could easily be a wedding decoration as a centerpiece for the headtable..
I got a beautiflully cut piece of wood. Then I went to find a very beautiful toy firetruck of a fairly decent size. I put sahara(the dry green block to put the silk flower stems in), covered it with moss. I suggest using your wedding colors in silk flowers and surrounding the glued down firetruck. Put greenery around the edge first then the lovely flowers.
Our fire department has had this decoration for 18 years! Happy Wedding Day!
Go to a cake decorating place that sells supplies
If you have Wishing Well near you, they should have kids size ones for around a buck each I would imagine. This is a sort of nickle store that sells party supplies like bag fillers (kazoo's, paper compasses, jumping frogs) and certain wedding & costume supplies.
Also, we're coming up on Halloween, now's the time to scope out the holiday stores and costume shops for the plastic fire-hats and other accessories.
Perhaps cinnomon candies as part of your favors, like red hots or something?
Hi! I had an idea for the plastic hats as centerpieces..where the shield is on a normal helmet to paste pictures of you and your feoncea on the front and possibly have flowers coming out the top. Its great to sit down at a table and be able to look at pictures from a couples past. Best wishes and good luck!
HI! I have so many ideas my self about the hats idea. My idea was to take the hats and paste black and white pictures on the front of our history. Its great to sit at a table and be able to see how a couple came to be. Hope it helps!! Best wishes and good luck!
My daugher is marrying a fireman, so she decided to use an old timey cherry red pedal fire truck. The flower girl will be in it, since she is not using a ring bearer and her twin will be walking in front of her throwing out rose pedals. It is like brand new! It is like 3 feet long. It has an old bell you ring on top with the wooden ladders on the sides. We are going to decorate the sides with white ribbon and have a cute sign hanging from the back. Then it will be taken to the reception and placed by the grooms table which will have a firetruck cake and a cake in the shape of a hose. Also on the table will have a runner with dalmation material. On the table also will be a red 7" fire hydrant and a pair of youth size fireman boots, which will be used for the dollar dance (fill the boot). Oh and when the preacher says now you can kiss the bride, sirens will be going off. No telling what else she is going to come up with.
The reception hall we were getting married in burnt down so I am looking for a firehat favors
Hi Chris my wedding is in May and I was searching the net endlessly to find wedding favors that were firefighter related because the two of us are both firefighters.. I couldnt find any tiny plastic hats to put say candy in but i did find chocolate candy molds that are little fire hats so I purchased tiny metal buckets that I will spray paint red and make some hats hearts and tiny chocolate fire trucks and put them into the buckets instead.We also took clip art and made labels for them with our own printer
to stick on the buckets and we purchaced ribbon we had made with our names and wedding date on them that I will tie to the handle.. I have a ton of ideas if you need any more. best wishes to you Julie.
I'm also getting married to a fireman and I'm getting a lot of my stuff of of eBay Type in fire then click worldwide the go back up to the top put the cursor next to fire and click enter again you can then type in fire wedding firefighter wedding and so on.
There are things like fire truck soaps, invitations, ring pillows and my favorite wedding cake toppers. There is also a website for these www.jwcaketops.com
and the list goes on
We also have a pull along fire truck for the ring bearer to bring down the aisle good luck
you guys gave me great ideas for our reception, my father and my fiancee as well as half the wedding party and guests are in or retired from the fire service..we will be placing an item from each of their careers on the grooms cake table, which will appropriately be shaped and decorated as a fire truck! you guys are awesome, thank you!
