Celebrating Your Mizzou Roots: Wedding Tips for the Diehard Tiger Couple

For many Mid-Missouri couples, the University of Missouri isn't just an alma mater - it's a way of life that shaped some of their most cherished memories and experiences. As proud Mizzou alumni ourselves, the DJ Shark Attack team always gets extra pumped to infuse some iconic Tiger spirit into local weddings.

Whether you first met and fell in love on the hallowed grounds of the Columns or just deeply bleed black and gold, there are so many fun ways to rep your Mizzou pride on your big day. Here are some of our top tips:

Processional Perfection

Make your grand entrances even more unforgettable by walking down the aisle to legendary Mizzou fight songs or alma maters. Hear the iconic strains of "Missouri Waltz," "Every True Son," or the rousing "Fight Tiger" as you make your debut as newlyweds.

First Dance Flavor

Speaking of memorable dances, burst onto the floor for your first twirl as married partners to an epic Mizzou anthem like "Home" by Zac Brown Band or "Callin' Baton Rouge" by Garth Brooks in honor of MU's Southern collegiate roots.

Fashion Flavors Incorporate subtle yet stylish sartorial nods to your Tiger ties through accessories like custom Mizzou-themed garters, cufflinks, or Nike Air Maxes repping that signature black and gold. Or make it boldly obvious by rocking cheeky Truman socks, Mizzou-crest bow ties, custom Uni jerseys - you name it!

Tiger Snacks and Sips

Get those St. Louis-style Imo's pizza squares or BBQ brisket sliders from the one-and-only Buck's on your late night snack menu. Specialty black and gold cocktails like "The Golden Girl" and "Alma Mater Martini" make perfect tribute sips too.

Trophy Decor Touches

Whether you opt for chic vintage Mizzou pennants and megaphones as table accents or go big with an ice sculpture shaped like Truman the Tiger, peppering in subtle decor hints will amplify your MU spirit.

Mizzou Moves

Of course, no self-respecting Mizzou wedding would be complete without bumping the latest Banny Grove bop like "Alma Mater" or working the "MIZ-ZOU" call and response into your grand entrances and special dances. Plenty of golden opportunities to get the whole squad involved!

At the end of the day, your DJ Shark Attack crew has got all the creative ammo to make your MU fandom fit as seamlessly as you'd like into your dream celebration vibe. After all, we're all part of that Tiger family too - and representing that unbreakable bond on your big day will make it all the more unforgettable.
