After being engaged since 2010, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson have finally set a wedding date, y’all! We really shouldn’t be surprised that, according to Us Weekly, she chose the weekend of Fourth of July for her nuptials, since she’s as all-American as it gets. The outlet reported that she and Eric are getting married in Santa Barbara, California, (wine country!) and she’s also having a “unique” wedding dress made that’s totally unlike the famous Vera Wang ball gown she wore when she wed Nick Lachey.

I’m thinking lots of elegant comfort food with Americana-style flair at the reception (it’s the Fourth, after all!). Here are my top five predictions for Eric and Jessica’s wedding:

A Romona Keveza Wedding Dress

Romona

After being engaged for four years and having two children, I’ve got no doubt that Jessica will want to flaunt what she’s got in a pink and subtly sexy gown.

A Vineyard Reception

Since Santa Barbara is known for its vineyards, what’s more gorgeous or fun than a big reception at one?

Hamburger and French Fry Appetizers

Not having an adorable assortment of hamburgers, hot dogs and french fries on the Fourth of July just isn’t right!

A Signature Lemonade Cocktail

The same goes for a signature lemonade cocktail! I know that Jess is a big celeb, but I also think she’s still a down-home Texas girl at heart who appreciates a sweet beverage in a mason jar.

A Fireworks Display

When Jessica does something, she does it big — so fireworks on the Fourth is the perfect way to end the night!
