It’s easy to pick out wedding colors when the nuptials and subsequent celebration are Buffalo Bills-themed.

Bills wedding partyBrad and Lisa Simcoe, who were married this past summer, are die-hard Bills fans who proudly donned the blue, red and white on their wedding day. The groom and groomsmen went so far as to replace tuxes with Bills jersey, and the bridesmaids wore red cocktail-length dresses to coordinate.

And it wasn’t just apparel that was straight from the Ralph Wilson runway—err, stadium.

“Our invitations were tickets,” Lisa Simcoe told BuffaloBills.com. “It started as a basic ticket, but we added more detail. We made the bottom rip off and I used a sewing machine to get the perforation.”

The “Shout” song was played every hour, on the hour, during the couple’s reception. Guests were encouraged to wave the Bills towels—with names of the newlyweds emblazoned on them—around in the air. The enthusiasm in the banquet facility was so infectious that even attendees of weddings in nearby banquet rooms were trying to get in, Brad Simcoe said in the BuffaloBills.com interview.
