Happy Fourth of July! The beginning of July, particularly the 4th, for me, is really the start of summer. For those of us in New England it finally marks the end of a rainy, cool spring and we are ready to welcome the hot, hazy, humid days of summer. I can think of no better way to celebrate the official start of summer than with this red, white and blue (with a vintage twist) wedding inspiration board.
How dapper does our groom look in a bow tie and denim shirt? Can you even stand it that the jacket has a burlap-y texture? Pinwheels are always a fun favorite favor (say that three times fast – ha!) especially for the summer and a backyard wedding with lots of kids. Ice cold Cokes are simply the best during hot summer days and perfect to quench the thirst of hot wedding guests. Oh, to be a kid again and swing! Especially with streamers!! Such a pretty, whimsical idea – can you see the bride swinging with her groom giving her a little push? Sigh… And can I just say that having doughnuts as a sweet treat all decorated with stars in the red, white and blue would put me over the moon! How about you? Lastly, this red, polka dot halter dress is a classic, adding a Marilyn-Monroe-bombshell style for your bridesmaids to wear. Love!!
