4 Ways to Incorporate Oxford Mississippi in Your Wedding
Oxford Mississippi has so many great identifiers for brides to incorporate into their wedding day. Whether they’re from Oxford originally, attended Ole Miss, or are just fond of this place, there are plenty of ways to pay tribute to our small town with big character.
Double Decker Buses
The double decker buses aren’t only a trademark of Oxford, but also make a statement. They’re perfect to show your guests a little bit of what this town is all about. The iconic bus was first introduced to Oxford Mississippi in 1994, when they were imported from England. We’ve had brides use the double deckers to transport their wedding parties and guests because they’re so fun and make for great photo opportunities.
Local Food Favorites
Oxford Mississippi is also home to an abundance of good restaurants. The skill levels of local chefs is highly sought after and the menu varieties offer great choices when it comes to catering. Whether you get the whole event catered by a local favorite or just want to feature a few of your favorite dishes, out of town guests are sure to be impressed.
Ole Miss Football
To plan or not to plan your big day around football season? It’s a loaded question, especially if you are in the south. Football season tends to be a very busy time for most people, especially in college towns like Oxford. Luckily, at a school like Ole Miss, it’s easy to subtly (or not so subtly) incorporate the hype of football season in your big day. We’ve had brides use school colors in their groom’s cake, table decorations, and even a pom pom send off!
A popular and classic backdrop for weddings is obviously the University’s campus. With Ole Miss holding the title of Most Beautiful Campus, taking advantage of its beauty is a given. Many brides and grooms take their wedding party pictures in the Grove or at the Lyceum. Not only that, but there are so many iconic landmarks around Oxford such as the Courthouse and Faulkner’s Home. What better way to show your guests how gorgeous Oxford is than through the setting.
