Let Love Sparkle! - Fourth of July Wedding Inspiration
We've been sending so many red, white and blue sparkler tags out the door this summer! So we couldn't resist compiling our very favorite Fourth of July wedding ideas for you here. From smoke bombs to sparklers, this July is going to be one to remember.
The Happy Couple
July 4th is the perfect excuse to break out the pyrotechnics! Red and blue smoke bombs make for a dramatic and unique portrait session. Plus they can be used before the sun goes down, giving you the chance to get some gorgeous shots when the light is perfect.
Now, we know what you're thinking. The obvious choice is to put your bridal party in red and navy, right? But the key to taking a themed holiday wedding to the next level is not to lean too far into the obvious. You still want your wedding to feel unique to you, and not like just another backyard barbecue. And dusty blue bridesmaid dresses (paired with white and burgundy flowers) are a great way to achieve that. They fit the color scheme but still feel light and airy. Perfect for a midsummer wedding.
Dress your groomsmen in grey or tan to compliment the bridesmaids. Then, add a silly star spangled surprise with matching flag socks for the perfect photo op.
There is no shortage of red petaled flowers to choose from for your 4th of July wedding. We love the depth that the added pinks and greens bring to this bunch. Tie them off with a blue ribbon or a vintage tin like this one to complete the look. (And that striped table cloth?! Perfection.)
Indulge your inner child with boozy fruit smoothies that give a fun, grown up nod to the firecracker popsicle.
Give your guests a wide range of lawn games to choose from and the party will go on long after fireworks end. Corn hole, horseshoes, lawn golf, croquet, and badminton are all popular choices for this wedding theme.
The Table Decor
Vintage blue glassware, red ranunculus, and faded wash linens give this tablescape a classic summertime feel.
Classic barbecue and picnic staples are right at home with this wedding theme. Serve family style and don't forget the wet wipes!
Sorry, did we say cake? Because you can't have a 4th of July wedding without pie! Serve up slices of cherry, blueberry, strawberry and blackberry for a red, white and blue dessert extravaganza.
