Wedding Bells and Fire Trucks! Yes, many Firefighters throughout modern history have chosen to mix the career with their wedding, some brides love it, others hate it- and I think the guests don’t care as long as there’s cake (and maybe a bar)
Seems like there are two types of Firefighter Weddings- ones where it’s subtle and maybe just a nod to the profession, then there are those that go all out!
Either way it’s your choice, and I’ve seen weddings that have both and they are both beautiful!
I’ve asked in many Firefighter circles and kept an eye on Pinterest to bring you the top Firefighter themed Wedding Ideas plus some cute Firefighter Wedding Gifts and Must Haves.
But if your looking for something more of a DIY photoshoot- you’ll want to peep this firefighter guide instead

Must Have Firefighter Wedding Items for the Bride and Groom
Your wedding is on of the biggest days of your life- and if you pick the right person, it will be your ONLY wedding.
So when it comes to things to plan and do and get- it can be as much or as little as you’d like.
The key here is to make sure you have items you can remember- like pictures, keepsakes for yourself, and keepsakes for your guests!
It’s one of the reasons Firefighter Brides have been loving these custom helmet shields– perfect for pictures and a beautiful keepsake that everyone will want to keep after the big day!
Beauties for the Bride
There are so many wonderful and unique options for Garters, especially on Etsy. Not only are these super cute and sexy, but a must have for any Firefighter Wedding!
You’ve got some options when it comes to Firefighter themed garters- like this classic garter that will match bunker gear!
Or you could go straight up traditional and get a pretty satin Firefighter themed Garter.
Not everyone has a big wedding with a garter though.
you might opt out of a garter- and you could go with something even more subtle like a wedding charm that doubles as ‘something blue’ that you can clip into onto your dress! It’s so cute- it even comes custom with your wedding date!
Fire Life themed Jewlery
Looking for something classy to wear after your engagement, to your rehearsal or even for the wedding? There are so many beautiful jewelry pieces you can add to your collection from Amazon and Etsy! Listed below are the most popular- but their are SO MANY!
Like this maltese cross necklace customized with your Firefighters number, and this absolutely stunning dainty bracelet. Perfect for showing your love of the thin red line without being over the top.
Best part? both of those items would be perfect in a wedding. Cute, classic and adds a touch of Fire Life without it being overly obvious.
