I can picture all the tables too. There would be lots of red and blue candles and a centerpiece which would include toiletpaper and paper towel tubes painted in bold red and silver and blue stripes with wicks to look like firecrackers. The gift for each guest would be an American flag cookie.
Themed weddings are the big thing now. If my mom had only known she could have started a trend. As it was, I think they only picked flag day because it fell on a Saturday that year.
I've been watching too much Four Weddings on TLC!
