Find out how to incorporate subtle or bold Americana style.

While it's certainly appropriate to not go with a red, white, and blue color palette despite the holiday, many couples do choose to incorporate at least one of the hues for their celebration as a nod to Americana style.

Happy Independence Day! If you're getting married this weekend or are planning a Fourth of July wedding for 2020, congratulations! While it's certainly appropriate to not go with a red, white, and blue color palette despite the holiday, many couples do choose to incorporate at least one of the hues for their celebration as a nod to Americana style. If you'd rather go with a completely different color palette for your ceremony and reception, consider using red, white, and blue for the décor of the welcome party – especially if it falls on the 4th itself.

From bright red bouquets, to blue-and-white china patterns, to providing American flags as favors or photo booth backdrops, there are many ways to incorporate a red, white, and blue color palette for your nuptials. The Fourth of July also offers a wonderful opportunity to invite guests to play classic lawn games like cornhole at your rehearsal dinner or cocktail hour, offer upscale barbecue-style hors d'oeuvres or food stations at the reception, and even festive ice cream carts to give guests a sense of nostalgia at the event.

We’ve gathered images from the bridal showers, welcome parties, ceremonies, cocktail hours, and receptions of Inside Weddings couples to provide you with red, white, and blue wedding inspiration from real wedding events, below. Click each photo to see more from these celebrations!
