1. Dress festive
Bridesmaids: Have your bridesmaids wear blue, red or a combination of the two. Add in pops of red in the flowers or stick with all white. Use nautical stripe blue and white ribbon around the bouquets.
Groomsman: Wear navy suits with red ties or bowties. A fun detail is to have the guys all wear American flag socks.
2. Bold décor
Add in some pops of red, white, and blues and mix in patterns like stripes, ikat, plaid, checks, polka dots or floral.

3. Have fun with food
Be creative with your wedding menu by serving typical American foods. Mini apps can include mini burgers/hotdogs, mini pb&j sandwiches, grilled cheese with tomato soup shooters, baked mac and cheese balls, and more. Serve lemonade and iced tea in mason jars with striped straws, have signature cocktails that fit the patriotic theme.
For dessert you could serve mini pies, a naked cake with berries, red velvet cupcakes or even cookies. Late night s’mores are a fun treat if you have a bonfire or fire pit at your venue.

4. Light it up!
End your celebration with a bang! Fireworks or sparklers make a fantastic ending to your 4th of July or Americana themed wedding. Or a fun favor idea is these super cute confetti poppers.
