July 4th is a day filled with celebration – specifically, filled with fireworks, barbecues, and spending time with loved ones. But did you know that it’s also becoming a popular day for weddings? A July 4th wedding can add a special patriotic touch to your celebration of love while making it a day for everyone to remember.

Here are some ideas for throwing a July 4th wedding celebration:

Red, White & Blue Linens

There’s no better way to celebrate Independence Day than by incorporating the colors of the flag into your wedding color scheme. Below we included the red, white & blue mood boards we created for Memorial Day – incorporating fun linens from BBJ Linen.

Festive Desserts

Incorporate patriotic themed desserts by using blueberries & strawberries in your sweets.

Fireworks (or Sparklers)

Fireworks are a staple of July 4th celebrations, and they can add an unforgettable touch to your wedding. At the end of your reception, have a fireworks show that will not only end the night with a bang, but will make the occasion all the more memorable. Check the local laws, regulations and permits required to host a firework show! If they don’t allow for a firework show, consider a sparkler exit!

Boat Entrances or Exits

In Coastal Virginia Beach, 4th of July weekend is the best time to take your boat out on the water. So why not incorporate a boat entrance or exit for your big day?!

Patriotic Decor & Ambiance

Whether it’s pops of red, white & blue in your flowers, or a smoke bomb going off in red, white & blue after the ceremony… the answer is always red, white & blue!

Summer Wedding Favors

Summer wedding favors, such as fans and sunglasses, can make both practical and fun gifts for your wedding guests. Add a patriotic twist to your favors by creating ones with the American Flag design.

If you’re having a July 4th wedding, be sure to check with local vendors ahead of time, as some vendors may be closed on this national holiday. It’s also important to keep your guests’ comfort in mind so be prepared with sunscreen, water stations, and other items necessary for a hassle-free outdoor celebration. With some careful planning, you can create an unforgettable event that honors your commitment to each other as well as to the country that you both love. Happy 4th of July and wedding day!
