Carnival Wedding Theme

A carnival wedding theme is fun, modern and colorful.  If you want a celebration that is truly one of a kind and has wonderful out of the norm elements and accessories, this is your ideal theme.

Unusual venues such as museums, fair rounds, barns and gardens work perfectly for this type of event.
The open spaces can be used and decorated in many ways.

Balloons, pinwheels, garlands and props are always seen as part of the decor. You can also incorporate one or more carnival type games to entertain your guests.

Your wedding attire can include any colored shoes (for example blue wedding shoes), original bouquets and accessories.  You can take a look at a custom dress in this Alice in Wonderland wedding.

Let's take a look at this blue and red circus inspired celebration.

Carnival Wedding Theme Style

Fun balloon shapes and carnival games were part of this celebration. The bride and groom even took some wonderful photos at the ferris wheel. While stripes were the main element in this celebration, you could also use other geometrical inspired decorations, such as those with polka dots or chevron decor.

I love the idea of this simple to do centerpiece. Simply place a small white vase with your preferred flowers on top of a tower made of raffle tickets rolls. Also mini mason jars in blue topped with a red ribbon contain a small tealight to bring in another element to the table setting.

All the elements used here are affordable and can be bought in bulk at wholesale prices.

Super easy, fun and colorful for any DIY bride to duplicate using their own color palette.

The sweet table buffet featured vintage styled jars and containers filled with colored candy. You can even use the sweets buffet as a way for your guest to fill in their own favor bags as souvenirs. Popcorn boxes and other party favors are also ideal for this theme.

Colored banners pop against a blue stripe background. The table is set up with blue linen and the jars are decorated with blue and/or red ribbons and bows to bring the whimsical vintage feeling to the set up.

A delightful reception that will inspire you when planning your own celebration.
