Having a Labor Day Wedding

Labor Day weekend is a popular time for weddings for many reasons. One, the weather starts to get a little cooler after the hot summer heat, and two, it gives your out-of-town guests an extra day to travel. If you have your wedding on a holiday it’s fun to add some holiday elements into your wedding decor and details. We spoke with several wedding vendors to help you plan a Labor Day wedding.

There are many areas where you can incorporate some blue and red into your wedding design including bridesmaid dresses, floral, linen, wedding favors, and stationary. Wedding planner Simply You Weddings suggests navy linens with a white bouquet, and you can use navy and white striped straws to add to the holiday spirit. Just remember not to get carried away with your reds, whites, and blues!

Since you can’t wear white after Labor Day, for holiday wedding flowers Avant-Gardens suggests creating an all white bouquet. Using white hydrangeas, white cymbidium orchids, white mini callas, white tulips, white ranunculus, and tropical foliage will create an elegant bouquet.

For food, Delicious Catering consider having a grill station with steak, sliders, and mini hot dogs. Wedding planner Simply You Weddings says you can pair this with classic American sides like macaroni and cheese, corn on the cob, and bacon cups. In addition to your wedding cake, Two Fat Men Catering suggest for dessert you serve delicious home-made ice cream or have a candy bar filled with red, white and blue candies for your guests to take home. Lastly, a good old sparkler exit will be the perfect ending to your holiday wedding. We hope you have found something in this blog to use at your wedding and hope you have a wonderful Labor Day!
