The reception: Hold your reception at night and let the sparks and sparklers fly! No Fourth of July wedding celebration would be complete without a few fireworks. You could also switch things up by adding a few sparklers to your centerpieces when the party really gets started. Think about letting each of your guest set off a firework in honor of you and your new spouse. They’ll feel even more involved in the wedding and the night sky filled with colors will be a sight to see.
The party favors: Red, candied apples, sparklers and Fourth of July themed magnets would make great favors for your wedding. Give away miniature Liberty bells and American flags as a bonus. If you’re more of a foodie, consider making fruit baskets with strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.
The music: What good would a Fourth of July wedding be without a little All-American music? Although it would fit the theme, refrain from playing “The Star- Spangled Banner” during your reception. Instead, play a little Elvis Presley or Bruce Springsteen. Songs like “Surfin’ U.S.A.” by The Beach Boys will surely be a hit with your guests.
