12 Festive Red White and Blue Wedding Ideas

In honor of our country's birthday, we've rounded up our favorite red, white and blue ideas to put a chic, Americana twist on even the most classic of weddings. Read on for some fun patriotic inspiration.

1. Nautical Bouquets

These preppy bouquets are the perfect complement to classic navy bridesmaid dresses. White hydrangeas, persimmon roses, blue thistle, delphinium and blue nigella give the stems a hint of Americana, while navy and white striped ribbon make them well suited for a seaside celebration.

2. Festive Formalwear

Bridesmaids aren't the only ones who can have fun color! We love this "New England prep" look, which pairs a navy jacket and gingham button down with bright red pants.

3. Peony Boutonniere

Wrap a bright peony in lace and twine to get this sophisticated lapel-look, which pairs especially well with the coordinating check tie and pocket square. For an extra-sentimental detail, match the boutonniere lace with the wrap on your bouquet.

4. Flower Girl and Ring Bearer

Who could be better to announce your walk down the aisle than these two cuties? For a more casual affair like this outdoor ceremony, ditch the fluffy dress and mini-suit and outfit the flower girl and ring bearer in ensembles that match your wedding colors.

5. Striped Stationery

This stylish stationery set manages to be both vintage and modern with the bright illustrated flowers and clean diagonal stripes. Backers and envelope liners are a great place to play with pattern and incorporate accent colors.

6. Jazzed Up Cocktails

Bright printed straws are an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up cocktail hour. Add them to a colorful signature drink for a fun finishing touch. Or turn sip into an instant escort card by adding flags to each straw with guests' names and table numbers.

7. DIY Centerpiece

Can you believe this floral centerpiece is a DIY? Turn a utility light upside down to create this beach-inspired look, which is filled with red dahlias and blue hydrangeas. Don't worry about flowers wilting每this imitation vase holds water too!
