With summer swiftly approaching we're preparing for fireworks, barbecues, and of course, the red white and blue! This color pallet is a cute and chic way to tie in a patriotic feel to your June or July wedding. This week we at AMW put together a collection of our favorite red, white and blue weddings for your inspiration!
This beautiful venue at Lowndes Grove provides the perfect summer July look! Add some simple red, white and blue touches and you have a gorgeous and classic reception venue for you and your guests to enjoy.
When it comes to place settings, the opportunities are endless on design styles. Maybe you will opt for a more simple place setting with gorgeous florals; or a beautiful berry and pomegranate seed trail with elegant napkins to tie the place setting together. Beautiful blue gauntlets and classic taper candles with gold accents are great options when adding the finishing touches to each table.
When it comes to the smallest details, we are all about it! A fantastic way to tie in that red, white and blue aesthetic without it being too overwhelming is through small accessories. These American flag cufflinks are the perfect touch to the groomsmen outfits. If you want something a bit more, opt for some American flag socks to bring out that pop of color on a slightly larger scale. Make your guests feel welcome with some patriotic inspired koozies that they can use during your celebration and reuse for the entire summer.
From small florals from Beth at Charleston Wedding Studio to these adorable welcome decorations, the possibilities are endless to tie in red, white and blue colors to your special day.
Obsessed is an understatement, we cannot get enough of this couple and their wedding photos!
Use environmental details to add to your couples photos. The Lowndes Grove house has absolutely gorgeous rooms to achieve that classic red, white and blue aesthetic. These oriental details with a gorgeous chic gown fully create the elegant summer look.
Can we hear it for these cakes? A simple style cake with dainty details is a gorgeous idea to go along with the red, white and blue. This adorable polka-dot cake from PPFG is the perfect amount of white and blue; this would go perfectly with red floral pieces.
The small blueberry and green leaf touch on this cake from PPFG is the definition of elegance. A great option if you choose to add red and blue berries to your table setting and, or champagne flutes. Simple details that tie the whole wedding together in a subtle way.
We cannot forget the bridal party dresses and suits! Beautiful shades of blue for the bridesmaids is a wonderful way to tie in blue while keeping a summertime feel to the bridal party. Choose to add some fun by adding red, white and blue patterns on the inside of the groomsmen jackets.
Don't forget the reception dress! We are still thinking about this stunning red reception gown. This is the perfect way to add that red into your reception and break out of "tradition."
