My fiance has always been a very driven, authoritative [but not in a bad way], take charge kind of dude. So he's had the nickname "The President" for years. He really loves the nickname and so do I, and it's become like a running joke with his family and friends. That said, I've now become "The First Lady". So... we've mutually decided that we LOVE the idea of a red/white/blue/patriotic wedding.
However, what we're trying to figure out, is how to do it without it seeming super tacky.
We have a few small ideas so far, for example, the colors won't be straight red, white and blue, they'll be navy blue, a darker, richer red, and a pure white.
We don't intend on having any flags around [except perhaps to top the cake, not sure about that yet.]
Any ideas on how to do this in a classy, understated way?
