In the past weddings themes did not exist. Weddings had to be elegant, stiff and palace appropriate. Times have changed, and with that change come an array of ideas for different themes, some which we have spoken about in other posts.
With carnival weekend in full swing, we thought of dedicating this post to a flair of colours, bright ideas and daring twist for those who are after something a bit different.
The vintage carnival and circus theme is all the kick right now for putting together outstanding wedding celebrations! From bright and beautiful wedding decorations, stationary to unusual bouquets, buttonholes and fun carnival games, guarantee that both you and your guests experience the time of your lives with a wedding filled with that carnival glee!
The Photo Booth Backdrop – This cowboy/circus type of backdrop which could be done for you, hired or even made by yourselves. You could also include a variety of props to go with it for guests to enjoy and have fun with whilst you’re having your professional photos taken.
Vintage Carnival Light Letters – These are similar to the elegant white signs we are used to, a bright red colour can give these letter a whole new dimension to your theme.
Popcorn anyone? – We are all used to seeing these machines in kids parties, but if you’re considering a carnival theme wedding a more laid back but fun occasion, these machines are the way to go, you can also pair it together with a candy floss maker for an all round sweet corner.
Vintage Carnival Wedding Stationary – You can customise carnival stationary, such as invitations, menus, place names, table number and table plan. Find something bright, striped and colourful.
Say it with Balloons – These ordinary party props can become extraordinary with a simple scale shift. Balloons are balloons unless they’re a whopping 36 inches wide! Colourful thick latex helium filled balloons can be a bold statement for your carnival theme.
Flowers – We couldn’t just forget about this very important item. There are so many flowers that come to mind when thinking about carnival. Again lots of bright colours, reds with orange and yellows, daisies for those who are looking towards a neutral vintage feel.
