We’re sure it will come as no surprise to you, lovely readers, that the weekend around Independence Day is quite a popular time for couples to get hitched. There’s no need to debate over a color scheme, and the whole Americana theme comes with some adorable ideas for food, drinks, and décor.
We’ve seen bridesmaids and groomsmen decked out in red, white, and blue; bold bouquets accented with red roses and bluebells; dainty paper cones filled with fresh berries; and even American-inspired desserts like mini cherry pies. Seems like a pretty solid theme, right?
Well, in honor of the upcoming holiday—and the fact that the 4th of July will fall on a Saturday next year (perfect for your Big Day!), we decided to do a little digging into patriotic weddings. Now, we should warn you before you go and commence a search of your own: red, white, and blue weddings are not always pretty. This is definitely a theme that can go terribly wrong if taken overboard, so you’ll want to approach it with caution. Remember, this is your wedding, not just a rowdy 4th of July party.
To keep you on the right track to planning a tasteful affair, we’ve pulled together a few of the best patriotic ideas from Pinterest.
