Planning a patriotic wedding doesn’t have to be tacky.

Written and pinned by Kristen Uppercue

The Fourth of July is the perfect time to gather family and friends, enjoy a lovely meal, and celebrate the wonderful country we live in. So, why not have your guests celebrate you, too? Planning a patriotic wedding doesn’t have to be tacky—there are various ways to elegantly pull off a festive red, white, and blue July 4th wedding! You can add pops of red and blue in many places, such as the bouquets, the reception area, and even the wedding party’s attire. Jazz up the attire by having the groomsmen wear American flag socks and the bridesmaids in either red or navy dresses will give your wedding an unique touch. To put off a more Americana feel, you can serve classic American foods, such as burgers and coleslaw. Maybe even end the night with a lively fireworks show to let the sparks fly just like they do in your relationship!
