i was going to say black white and green when i read the topic header!! there are tons of green flowers (spider mums are my FAVES for this color combo) but you could also do hydrangeas or white gerbers or something like that. i think an all white floral display with hints of green would be sooo chic and sophisticated and cool looking!!!

i’m so jealous btw, you get to have fireworks on your wedding day FREE of charge!!! is your venue close enough for you to view the city’s festivities?

Well depending on the shade of green you using you could use apples or limes as center pieces or other decorations. They’re probably cheaper than flowers and offer a little something different then the traditional flowers.

Miss Cake – I was going to suggest the same thing! I would say go with Orange or Green for a great pop of color! If you’re not opposed to using fruit as a accent, or as your centerpieces it’s not very expensive and most people probably won’t have seen the idea yet!

As for green flowers – Hypericum berries, Green Dianthus, hydrangeas, rose green romantica roses…

We chose July 4th for the exact same reason!  We actually didn’t want to completely remove people from the holiday but was also didn’t want a patriotic theme either, so we’re doing red, white and blue monotones.  I.e. the ceremony is going to be all white, the cocktail hour will be all blue (an aqua shade), and the reception will be all red (with some white.)  For things like invitations and save the dates we’re going with red and aqua with has been popping up a lot lately and is definitely on the more modern side.

Black and green is a beautiful color combination and the black and white leaves you with so much room for flexibility which is really nice and there is so much greenery in flowers that it’s a nice one to pull off.  I also really like the yellow and grey combinations for modern a summer wedding.

I love the aesthetics of W hotels so I’m, sure that whatever you go with will be beautiful.  Good luck!

I’m a July 4th, 2010 bride too!  My color scheme is Lime Green and UCLA Blue.  It’s so good to see someone else who is excited about choosing the 4th for their wedding – I got a little discouraged at first when reading a discussion about the pros and cons of a wedding on a family holiday.  But, overall I love our choice in date and think it reflects how important our family is to us!  🙂

There are not a ton of flowers out there in green, but you could use black or white flowers too, which expands the number of flowers you can use.How about an accent color, like gold or silver? And think outside flowers to feathers, buttons, fake flowers, fabric, wood and metal!

My first reaction to your post title was, “Use Red, White, and Blue!” Hahaha…
