An All American BBQ Wedding Theme

Memorial Day Weekend has arrived and we're kicking off the summer season across the country! It's that time of year for barbecuing with family and friends. From burgers and brats to baked beans and potato salad, who doesn't love a good BBQ? Some people love it so much that they want to incorporate it into their wedding. Today's blog from your favorite Florida bridal salon offers ideas for planning an All American BBQ themed wedding!

An I Do BBQ 

From the catering to the decor, there are so many fun and unique ways to host a BBQ themed wedding! Below you'll find some of our favorite ideas that you can incorporate into your summer wedding.

Marriage is Messy 

The most important aspect of a BBQ themed wedding is obviously the food! Many BBQ places offer catering options with brisket and pulled pork by the pound, or if you have someone in your family that loves to grill, you could do your own burgers and brats. What summer BBQ doesn't have watermelon? Consider cutting the watermelon into small triangles and putting them on a popsicle stick for ease of eating! For cute and convenient table decorations, consider putting ketchup, mustard and barbecue sauce in mason jars with pump lids. You could also get printed napkins that say "Marriage is Messy." And if you want to go all out with this theme, check out some of the cakes on Pinterest that look like burgers!

BBQ, Booze and Bad Dance Moves 

Just like with any themed party, the things you can do with the decor are endless! Pinterest has so many cute and fun BBQ wedding ideas that you can use for inspiration. You can make a sign to acknowledge where the reception will be held that reads, "BBQ, Booze and Bad Dance Moves." If you're having a buffet style dinner, you can use a chalkboard to display the menu selections. Grab some big buckets or even a wheel barrel to use as an ice bucket to keep drinks cold.

To Have and To Hold... and to Keep Your Drink Cold 

The perfect party favor for a wedding BBQ is a drink koozie! Whether you choose to serve beers, sodas or waters, your guests will be able to keep their drink cold all through the reception. You can customize them with just about any saying you'd like. We thought, "To Have and to Hold and to Keep Your Drink Cold" was pretty clever. You can also add your names and date of the wedding. Other favor ideas could include mini bottles of BBQ sauce with your own unique wedding label, or bottle openers with your names and wedding date on it.

BBQ, Bags and Brews 

What BBQ is complete without some outdoor games? Keep your wedding guests entertained during the reception by providing some fun outdoor games like corn hole, giant Jenga and Yardzee. If you have someone crafty in the family or can find someone local to make the games for you, you could even personalize them with your wedding colors, names, date, etc. You and your guest are bound to have a great time playing games and dancing the night away!
