While most of us catch up to the idea that it’s already Labor Day, some couples decide that a wedding-filled weekend is the perfect way to cap off the summer. Not going to lie, we LOVE this idea, and if you decide to go this route, you’ll want to check out these Americana wedding ideas! Between the rustic decor, vintage venues and of course some pops of red, white and blue, this may be the best last big celebration before summer ends.

3. Patterned Linen: Forgo the classic backyard look with a checkered linen. Instead, use a patterned navy and white one for a bit more pizzazz. It’ll spice up your backyard look instantly. (via A. Dominick Events / Abby Jiu)
4. Colorful Bouquet: Just because summer is ending doesn’t mean your bouquet can’t be colorful and bright. Mix neutral and bright flowers together for a picture-perfect bouquet. The red anemones’ bright red hue and navy center give this bouquet a patriotic touch. (via Vitae Weddings)
