Nothing is more American than Burgers Beers and 4th of July Weddings!
1) Have A Weekend Wedding
One of he benefits of having your wedding on the 4th of July is that everyone is already off. Play into this, and schedule your day on the Saturday, and have all the guests arive friday evening or and have an event or two planned. Embellish the fact that it’s the fourth.
2) Have fun with the food
It’s the fourth of July and the main thing to remeber is that in peoples mindes the order of priority is America’s birthday, and then your wedding. So instead of fighting it, embrace it. Nix the fancy food and go with something a little more theme appropriate. Friday evening maybe have a simple buffet with burgers, hot dogs, and salads. For the meal during the reception its possible to class it up a little bit, but make sure you stay on theme. Maybe some gormet sliders with some extra delishous mac and cheez.
3) Have fun with the drinks
In the same respect as the food, also have fun with the drinks. make sure there is some ice cold beer on hand and pick a few signature 4th of July themed cocktails from this fun list of drinks to try.
2) Make Sure the Atmosphere is relaxed
The core concept to take away is that if you are having a wedding on the 4th, so you can’t treat it like a traditional wedding. Everyone is there mainly to have, relax and celebrate for the holiday, so the whole weekend should play into this. Have some beer, some burgers, a short ceremony and some fireworks, and you will be golden. They have to potential to be an outrageous amount of fun; all you need to do is keep in mind that this is the fourth of July, and it happens to have your wedding on it, not the other way around. If you embrace it and have some fun with it, then everyone else will to and you will have the wedding of the year. Good luck!!
