July 4th Wedding Inspiration & a Happy Birthday Present to You!

Make A Declaration
You know, I always thought that getting married on the 4th of July was sort of weird. People are dang crazy on this day - gathering, eating, drinking, merriment. Wait a minute? Isn't that what a wedding is all about? Plus, being a national holiday, you get time off, friends and family can get together with a little lee way on either side...what better way to usher in beginning of summer BBQ’s and picnics, fireworks and the beach...ok fine, you convinced me.

Let's celebrate independence from your parents and the rest of the world by getting married!

Since I'm trying to dispense with the cheese factor, here are some tasteful July 4th inspired boards and photos for your viewing pleasure. Confession: As much as I'm not a fan of the ol' Red, White and Blue  wedding palette, the colors for my second wedding (I married the same man were turquoise and red, just a hair shy of the same color family as these patriotic goodies. Happy 4th ya'll!

I am super smitten with these sparkler wedding favors! And the matches - a perfect combo to tie up the theme! Remember wedding branding is about carrying your theme from the first Save the Date sighting to the last smoldering sparkler!
