Happy 4th- All Things from BBQs to Weddings

Happy 4th of July hope everyone has a great day and enjoys the day.
People celebrate in so many different ways, which just reflects the uniqueness that makes our country what it is. Many of us BBQ or have family gatherings today and throughout the weekends of the Summer. Others choose this time of year of their big day, with a holiday wedding weekend!
I just wanted to give a shout out, SaltymeetsSweet has some great ideas for Summer BBQ meals and desserts. I really want to try her latest dessert recipe. It would be a GREAT addition to our Thinking-Outside-the-Cakebox dessert ideas for weddings. I'm a bit of a chocolate junkie, if you haven't already figured that out from my other posts. Another great blog full of BBQ ideas and recipes for summer is Closet Cooking  I just started following his blog last week and LOVE so many of the recipe ideas.

Anyway, the 4 of July can be a great theme for a bridal party and wedding. Of course I could not miss the opportunity to mention some cool wedding styles using red, white and blue color schemes. I just saw an interesting, festive, very out-of-the-box bridal party. The girls where in white dress with red diagonal stripes and the maid of honor was in a navy blue dress. It is definitely different while incorporating patriotic colors and theme. A more traditional patriotic theme that I have seen use more often is the bridal party dressed in red and blue, they can alternate or the maid of honor can stand out in one color with the brides maids in the other. The bride wears here beautiful white dress and the photographs of the bridal party are as patriotic as you get.
If you are planning a 4th of July weekend wedding, Memorial weekend wedding or just want to celebrate with patriotic theme their are a lot of cute ideas and options.

How do you all feel about red, white and blue color scheme or theme?
