We are planning our wedding on February 20, 2007 at the fire hall. We are looking to do a fire theme based wedding and are trying to find things to do with the fire department for the wedding. If you could help us and give us some ideas that would be appreciated!

Hi There and congratulation's on your up-coming Wedding! I have designed two Fire Fighter themed weddings, the one just recently was in the colors of Black, Red and White, it had a very clean and classic look, but any color will work. I used white table clothes as the base color for the tables then I added black runners going down the middle of each set of tables followed by Red Rose petals and votive candles, then for the centerpieces I placed a Toy Fire Truck or Stuffed Dalmatian Dog with Roses and Rose petals tucked under and around them and then added more candles. THIS WAS SUCH A HIT! and everyone LOVE IT! the best part about using the toys is that the couple donated them to the Fire Department! So this Christmas they have given a gift of love to many children.
Wishing you a Wonderful Wedding Day and a Lifetime of Love...

I am having a fall/fire themed wedding next month. We found these roses that are yellow with red tips look like flames that we are putting on our cake. Cut the cake using a axe instead of knife. Also, for the dollar dance, use a fire boot for the money. These are just a couple of ideas. Have a great wedding.

You should definitly checkout www.modemerr.com. They have some skirts (big fluffy wedding style things) that have flames on the bottom. pricey, but definitly flame inspired.
The candle company I represent has firefighter tart melts that can be done in your choice of both color & scent. These would make cute wedding favors for such a themed wedding. I've attached a picture of the tarts to give you an idea what I'm talking about. If you would like more info, email me at: email@example.com.

What a unique theme, I love it.
If you are going to print anything there are many fire themed graphics sites. Maybe put some flames around your invitations, programs, place cards, and thank you notes. Just put "fire graphic"s in a search and you will find many sites to choose from.
Congratulations and good luck.

You can always ask if you can use the boots (or some of them) to use as centerpieces. Also, use little fire trucks as favours. By all means have some kind of bell every time you and your new husband kiss. Instead of throwing a bouquet, throw a boot with confettie in it. Or you could use this as if you were going to throw water on a special guest.
