Keep The 4th Rockin': Suggestions for an Epic 4th of July

 

We all want to show some American pride on the 4th of July. Whether it’s wearing a red, white and blue blazer or hosting your wedding on the holiday weekend itself, there’s lots of fun to be had celebrating the most American holiday of them all.

We have seen many events using SpeechBooth on the big 4th; here’s five tips to keep your wedding Or event rocking through the 4th of July.

 

American Flag Shirt:

There’s nothing that says, “I’m here to party and celebrate independence” like an American flag-themed shirt, vest, dress, or hat. If you have an uncle with an eccentric personality and eclectic closet, you’re sure to find some Americana in there. “Borrow” this piece of wearable piece of history and display it proudly.  

Sparklers:

What can be said about sparklers that sparklers don’t already say about themselves? They’re great. These small sticks of pyrotechnic beauty are great for pictures, videos and they’re manageable in most situations. It’s not always easy (or legal) to have large surface-to-air ordinance style fireworks for weddings and parties. The almighty sparkler captures the magic of fireworks, and in the palm of your hand.

 

“Born in the USA”-album, Bruce Springsteen:

It’s simply the best. "Born in the USA" may be the most American album coming from the most American man. It would only make sense to have this album on repeat at all hours of the day on the 4th of July. The album is a timeless piece of rock and roll with heart. With contagious fun pulsing through every track, it's perfect for the summer time and even better for a wedding dance floor.

 

BBQ Food:

Let’s face it, no matter how selective your guests are, or how high-end your caterer is, who doesn’t enjoy a good old-fashioned burger or dog on the 4th of July? Or, how about veggie burgers and dogs? Watermelon and Hoodsie cups? These are basic staples of the holiday, like candy on Halloween or champagne on New Year’s Eve; everything is just better with them.

 

The Outdoors:

This goes without saying, but if you can either host your 4th of July gettogether outdoors, DO IT! This is the one time of year when everyone wants to outside. I dare someone who says, “I don’t like the outdoors” to cast criticism on an outside 4th of July wedding.  Even the crabbiest of personalities would enjoy crab cakes by the beach on the 4th.  Did we mention that speeches recorded outside look AWESOME. 

Wishing everyone who is celebrating and making memories today a Happy 4th of July from Team SpeechBooth!
