2. Modern and Clean Cut Wedding Invitations
Send out invitations with a modern design such as this one from we found from etsy seller, Ginger P. Designs. Love the clean look in a palette of navy blue and chartreuse with a modern set of fonts.
3. A Wedding Welcome Backdrop
Using Post-It Notes, this backdrop says “game, set, love” with the initials of the bride and groom. How cool is that? Find it via an actual tennis themed wedding photographed by Pat Dy Photography.
4. A Minimalist Style Wedding Cake
Minimalist yet elegant! Have a pistachio-flavored wedding cake that rests atop a bed of wheat grass! See how it fits perfectly with the color palette of navy and chartreuse, while a layer of blush pink rose petals adds a stylish feminine tone to the cake’s design. See this cake on Bridal Guide.

5. Tennis Themed Favors
Send guests home with a reminder of your love of the game! Think whimsical tennis themed macarons. Package them in simple white boxes tied with navy blue ribbons and a tennis racket-shaped favor tag. These yummy pieces were seen on the blog of our friends over at Spaceships and Laserbeams and were created by Melissa, of The Sweet Society.
With these five inspirational ideas, planning a tennis themed wedding can definitely be fun. Try taking a minimalist approach with creative and clever ideas and you will be surprised at the results!
