I am in the process of planning my wedding for next summer. I come from a military family and my brother will be getting home from deployment in June 2014. I am thinking of having the ceremony and reception on July 4, but don't want it to be too "theme-y". I want to be able to look back at pictures and see a wedding, not a party that I just happened to get married during. So my question is - how do I have a wedding on the 4th that includes some "americana" but isn't all red white and blue? My current thought is to have everything as normally planned (rustic, with lots of browns, greens, and a little peach/coral) but have the desert table all red, white and blue, and have a craft table with flag-themed crafts for the kids. My prospective venue is quite close to where my city sets off fireworks, so we will be able to go outside and watch those as well.
