Whether you're gearing up for The Masters or simply known to rock a pair of argyle socks and a derby hat, this roundup is for you. Steal one (or all) of these fun, golf-inspired details to make your wedding truly yours—to a tee.

1. Golf Course Ceremony

With their breathtaking views and meticulously designed landscaping, golf courses (like those of Pebble Beach, above) provide the ultimate dramatic scenery for your ceremony.

2. Golf Tee Boutonniere

Non-floral boutonnieres are a hot trend right now, and another out-of-the-box way to personalize.

3. Golf Course Lounge Area

Arrange cozy living room vignettes and lawn games (think: mini putting course or croquet) right on the green for a trendy cocktail hour setup with a timeless backdrop.

4. Argyle Socks (In Honor of Pro Golfer Payne Stewart)

Have the guys wear colorful socks for a fun, subtle personal touch.

5. Golf Ball Groom's Cake

If you're not feeling a totally golf-themed wedding, but still want to pay tribute to your favorite sport, the groom's cake is the perfect detail to get creative with.

6. Golf Ball Cake Pops

The shape and size of golf balls happen to be—very conveniently—identical to cake pops! Offer them with your dessert spread or hand them out as festive favors.

7. Groom in the Green Jacket

Champion of the Masters tournament gets to boast the coveted green jacket, so it's only fitting that your golf-loving groom—champion of your heart—dons his own emerald sport coat (it may sound cheesy, but you know it's true!).

8. Golf Cart Getaway

You don't have to be a golf fanatic to drive off in a golf cart. Roll up solo to the ceremony or cruise into the reception as newlyweds in the mini automobile that never goes out of style. Just be sure your dress and tux don't drag in the dirt!
