My fiance and I have been wanting to incorporate a little something military into our decorations. My issue is that I don't want it to look like a 4th of July party instead of our wedding. Help?
Yeah the arch of sabres is a good way to go too. When I think American flag as a decoration I definitely think of 4th of July. I guess I'm just thrown off a little by what you mean for decorations. Are you doing an outdoor wedding? Or just looking to spruce up your venue a bit? Maybe you could do the seal of his branch on the invites, or the place/escort cards. It's definitely up to you and your FI how much you want to incorporate it. And if you can't think of anything else, I think you have pretty good ways of incorporating already. Uniforms alone make it a military wedding.
What about using pics of old recruiting posters as table cards? Maybe you could ask family for coppies of old pics of other vets in your families. You could copy them to be black and white or sepia toned, put them in small frames and incorporate them into the table decor. Posted by iluvmytxrgr
