Today is the day we rejoice in our independence with celebratory BBQ feasts, neighborhood fireworks and good, old-fashioned American fun in the company of our friends and neighbors. As brides, we get to show our colors, whether they're red, white and blue or every color of the beautiful and equal rainbow, standing next to our best friend and soul mate, and join together in a union of love with a victorious "I Do!"

Today, we're imagining a patriotic soiree, complete with things we think are quintessentially American: fireworks, stars and stripes, a classic American (getaway) car, fresh wildflowers from across the fruited plain, preppy bowties, and, of course, liberty and justice for all.
