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

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.

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!
