The 4th of July is just around the corner and this upcoming holiday has left me thinking of all things red, white, and blue. So I thought, why not use this color palette for a summer wedding? I made a little wedding board inspired by the patriotic holiday.
Kevin and I got married a couple days before thanksgiving. We definitely didn’t want to have a cornucopia, pilgrim and indian, and wild corn decorated wedding. We did however, use fall inspired colors (which also happen to be my favorite colors, orange and yellow) for our wedding. I think the reason I don’t like holiday themed weddings is the same reason I would be bummed if my birthday were on Christmas Day. You know what I mean? I just wouldn’t want the festivities of one holiday to over shadow your big day (not to mention the idea of cornucopias are a wedding make me cringe).
I do think borrowing the patriotic color palette for a summer wedding would be so cute. I think it’s a great way to incorporate the season without lining the aisle with little American flags. What do you think? Would you use this palette for your big day?
