Something Red, White, and Blue

You don't see alot of red, white, and blue weddings, but why not!  Its Independence day and its a celebration.  There are so many wonderful things that you can do with these gorgeous colors!  Check out the summer ideas! 
And there are so many ways to make the 4th of July elegant!  So don't be scared of the bold colors and styles. 
I love the vintage look of the red, white and blue weddings too!  You can make it fun, like an afternoon picnic, or a cook out, or a fun evening event with lots of sparklers and maybe a few noise makers and fireworks.  Its your wedding, celebrate, have fun, make it your own.  And if you are just wild about something, go for it.  I am sure it will work, and really make your guests remember your special day.

Crisp, Fresh and Clean lines and new colors!

I love the vintage ideas I find, and the rustic and old things that you can incorporate into your wedding.  But there is something so wonderful about something that is crisp, clean and fresh for a wedding.  Bold colors, simple design, patterns, all things that can make a wedding crisp and clean.  Here are just a few ideas! 

Tiffany blue and red are my new favorite color palette for the summer.  I know its very 4th of July in a way but its very new and fresh, something that isn't seen often and will be the talk of your friends and family!
I think the boldness of the print on the ribbon of the flowers, really express clean lines, but are very soft with the color of the flowers.  Great use of color! 
Another new and fresh color palette, pink, white, black and yellow!  AWESOME! 
Fabulous idea with black and white, and bright colored flowers.  This bold ribbon on the wedding dress makes a statement, and is a neat accent. 
This is quite the unusual color pallet but it really works!
