Ooo, what a fun date!

What about serving lemonade, using sparklers for your exit, watermelon, lollipops for favors… really cute!

You could also set up lawn games for people to play, which would be really fun.

I attached a couple of pictures that I thought were nice, before I realized you don’t want to use red or blue. Oops!

Good luck! 🙂

Do you have a color scheme?  I think something that’s bright and fun would be awesome. I’m obsessed with yellow and white right now.  I think some crisp white linens, with a lemon centerpiece would look really great: Think a white bowl full of lemons, maybe some random sprigs of white flowers in there. Maybe throw some smaller vases full of orange roses.  I think the look would be very summery 


I also like the idea of the lemonade and fireworks.  Since it’s summer time, and your wedding is outdoors you could do cupcakes instead of a wedding cake.  Easy for people to eat, and there’s no cutting.  I also like the idea of wedding pies… very fourth of july (we always ate pie).  For favors you do small packages of sparklers wrapped in a pretty ribbon with a tag attached with your names and the date. 

   As for food, I’m not sure what your BBQ company provides but I would practice some recipes for all the basics:

Potato Salad

Regular Salad

Cole Slaw

Maybe some fancy jellos?

Cheesy Potatos?

Set up a boiling pot of water on the grill and do corn


Bakes Beans

Pasta Salad

I’m a July 4th 2009 bride too!!

We are definitely NOT doing red white and blue though – we’re using tiffany blue, chocolate brown, and champagne as our colors. 

We’re doing our reception in a hotel ballroom downtown so that our guests can see the downtown fireworks.  We’re also going to be doing a summer candy buffet and serving lemonade. Using sparklers for our getaway instead of birdseed or bubbles too. 

Will guests be able to see fireworks from your location?
