Inspiration Spotlight: Patriotic Themes

Happy Memorial Day! In honor of this great holiday, we have put together an Inspiration Spotlight on patriotic weddings. Many of those that are serving our country are also getting married and we couldn’t be prouder. Lippincott Manor has been honoring the military in any way that they can — by working to give each couple their dream wedding and by offering a free ceremony for any military wedding. This year’s Memorial Day weekend wedding united two West Point graduates. A military love story, the couple had both graduated from West Point on Saturday and on Tuesday, they were married.

Red, white and blue. Often times this patriotic palette is used at military weddings to honor their life commitments, but are also being used by brides that love their country. Are you having a July 4 wedding? This theme is a great way to honor the holiday and have your special day. Incorporating the red, white, and blue color scheme into your wedding shows your spirit, but also creates a great celebration atmosphere.

These colors can be worked into many decorative aspects of your wedding. Bridesmaids can be outfitted and accessorized in these patriotic colors, or the bride can hide a pop of patriotism with a pair of bold shoes or even a red, white, and blue garter belt. For your decor, flowers can easily be found in these three colors and create, beautiful bouquets and airy centerpieces that set the spirit for the day. Place settings can also incorporate this theme–even using just two of the colors tones down the decor and adds a sophisticated touch to the palette.

As a final tip, don’t forget the flag! Around your reception or at your ceremony have flags on hand for guests to have and wave proudly, because it is this piece of American pride that has inspired the look of your day.
