Hi, loves + Happy 4th of July! Before you prep the grill, mix up a concoction of your favorite beverage, and play a lawn game (or twenty), you must see today’s post. If red, white, and blue is your color palette of choice – or, you dream of a stellar 4th of July wedding celebration complete with fireworks – you’ve come to the right place. Today, we’re featuring the best 4th of July wedding finds complete with colorful cocktails, tasty treats, inspiring tablescapes, handmade finds, and much, much more! Oh, and if you thought a 4th of July wedding wasn’t synonymous with stylish, think again: you’re going to love what we’ve found! Enjoy!
4th of July Wedding Inspiration
Up first: the best 4th of July celebrations have lawn games. Corn toss is a popular choice (and personal favorite)… and you can’t beat a custom playing board like this!
This tablescape is simple, chic, and tasteful – and the heart is a delightful touch.
We also adore this tablescape set in the woods…
4th of July Cocktails
Take a few cues with these colorful cocktails:
And, of course, the all-American Coca Cola, complete with vintage crate (and a little Jack Daniels). Love!
Real 4th of July Wedding Inspiration
This real wedding has it ALL, without being overly immersed in red, white, and blue. Soft details – like the groom’s blue and white polka dotted tie, red pocket square, striped socks, and blue bridesmaid dresses – are just a few of the charming touches. We love the mason jars wrapped in red and white striped ribbon, the escort cards that are displayed using the same ribbon trim, and the light blue striped straws paired with mason jar drinking glasses.
