Know How To Tie In Red and Blue To Bring in The True Labor Day Vibe

We know that you have already planned your memorable wedding day in your head since your sweetheart has popped the most awaited question you have been waiting to be asked for, and you have said yes in revert to that question. Since that beautiful diamond ring is shining bright on your ring finger, all the thoughts of your wedding day are getting in your head. But, if you have always dreamed of that dreamy wedding with all the reds, blues, and white, it is time that you need to reconsider as now you are planning your wedding on Labor Day weekend. You might need to reconsider going for those lovely dark blue bridesmaids' dresses for your wedding day. As everyone knows about the weekend, having a Labor Day-themed wedding is very different than simply having your wedding over the long weekend. If you have already envisioned a red, white, and blue color for your wedding day, then you can go for it by all means! But, make sure you are separating it from the holiday. All you have to do is to be careful about how you are bringing or tying red and blue together for your wedding day decor. Just a pro tip here, use them sparingly. You can consider bringing in dusty light blue or ocean blue color to your Labor Day wedding decor. The other wedding decor elements like the tablecloth linens and other such times will be the centerpiece of your wedding day decor and should be more neutral. This way you will be able to maintain the balance between the blue and red wedding decor. Bring in your desired colors to your Labor Day wedding decor, without going overboard. 


Decorate Your Labor Day-themed With Summer Blooms

With your Labor Day wedding, summers will be on the edge of saying goodbye. So, let your wedding guests enjoy the last of the season in every possible way. You can consider bringing in the seasonal summer flowers to your wedding day floral decor. Summers are surely for dahlias, zinnias, and clematis flowers. Bring them to your wedding day decoration and make your wedding day photographs more vibrant and colorful. 


Offer the Option of a Self-Serve Bar to All Your Wedding Guests

Having the facility of the self-serve bar on your wedding day will surely make your wedding guests very much happy and excited. Self-serve bars are always great fun during your wedding day cocktail hour. Allow your wedding guests to make themselves a gin or some rum cocktail, or can help themselves with some sangria and mimosas. If you are on a budget wedding, you can also consider creating your own beer station, with some local craft brews on tap for your wedding guests to quench their summer thirst in the best possible way! Just a piece of advice here, don’t make it too DIY and allow yourself to hire bartenders standing by to do the heavy lifting when requested, in order to avoid the fuss over the bar counter. 


Summer Patterns Are a Must Include in Your Labor Day themed-Wedding

A wedding on Labor Day or around is a great chance to bring in endless summer vibes. As nothing says summer quite like seersucker or gingham! You can easily bring them on your wedding day table decor as napkins or runners for a grown-up feel, or you can just simply ask your sweetheart or your lovely ladies in pretty summer checks to bring in the authentic summer vibe to your summer Labor Day-themed wedding. It will also give great and vibrant details to our professional wedding to capture fabulous wedding pictures in great frames. 


Have a Pie Bar To Offer Some Sweet Memories and Experience to Your Wedding Guests

Pies are always loved. Also, having a pie bar happens to be perfect for your beautiful and sweet Labor Day wedding, without any doubt.

Just like the wedding happening on July 4th, if you are planning a Labor Day wedding, you can bring in the authentic touch of red, white, and blue and have lots of fun! Bringing in the touch of these colors will also make your wedding day look vibrant and holiday-themed. Rather than going all out with the Labor Day wedding theme, just try including these shades in a very subtle way. The ways are endless.
