@AllyP:  I think it might be easier on people travelling since they will already have Friday off.  As for patriotic theme, I would not expect and theme based on the date of a wedding.  If they do, who cares.  You do what you want.

@AllyP:  I wouldn’t assume that a wedding taking place over 4th of July weekend would have a 4th of July theme. I’d just figure it was a convenient weekend. I think it seems like a reasonable plan!

Hi date twin! 


I wouldn’t expect a themed wedding. What are you planning to pair the navy with?

I like patriotic weddings. The colors are bright and nice. and AMER-RI-CA!

@AllyP:  I’m getting married July 4th and we are not doing a patriotic wedding. My colors are pink & silver.

@AllyP:  I’ve read that July 4th is among the busiest travel days of the year, especially when it’s attached to a weekend. This could mean higher ticket rates and much heavier traffic… so I would weigh that against the benefit of most people having that Friday off already. But if you do pick that date, I definitely do not think you’re stuck with a patriotic theme if that’s not your thing–people might even find it refreshing if you go with some other theme. But never underestimate how much fun sparklers can be, especially for pictures 🙂
