14 Ways to Incorporate Maryland Into Your Big Day

 

 

 

 

 

1. Crabs!

Eat them, decorate with them, give out mallets as favors – there are tons of ways to use this Maryland icon in your wedding. We’ve all been to at least one crab feast rehearsal dinner. Because we all know…crabcakes and football, that’s what Maryland does!

2. Bring our home teams into the picture!

The Ravens, Orioles, Terps, or Jays – Maryland girls don’t shy away from including our love of sports into the big day.

4. Our allegiance to Old Bay and J.O. Spice is legendary.

Those iconic colors of yellow, red, white, and navy blue get a Marylander’s mouth watering every time! These tasty seasonings can be used for favors, gifts, as part of your menu, or even as inspiration for your invitations.

9. Let’s go downy ocean, hon!

Even if you can’t get to the beach for your wedding, you can serve boardwalk classics like Fisher’s popcorn, Thrashers fries, salt water taffy, or donuts from The Fractured Prune that will transport your guests to O.C. with one bite.
