Carnival

A carnival themed wedding is all about letting loose and having a ruddy good time! Think a circus vibe crossed with a roaring street party. Vibrant reds and yellows are the colours of choice, but anything bright will do! Lighting will play an important part to get the atmosphere just right, and you will need to have some big characters taking charge of the day.

My Top 5 Buys

1. Striped Paper Straws – £10.18 for 100 from Fancy That Loved

Everybody loves a paper straw, and these striped red ones encapsulate the theme perfectly!

2. Raffle Tickets – 200 tickets for £6.38 from LaZoie

I love raffle tickets. They just bring back memories of fun summer days at a village fete as a child. For games and competitions these would be great.

3. Letter Lighting Fixture –  £63.82 from West Vintage Trading Co

You can buy a lighting fixture in your initial! Awesome! This would be a great keepsake to hang on the wall at home once the wedding is over too.

4. Rock Candy Swizzle Sticks – 6 sticks for £3.67 from Jazzy Apple Gal

I can imagine these in a delicious cocktail. Swizzle sticks just add fun don’t they?!

5. Love Heart Stacking Rings – 10 rings for £8 from Accessorize 

I came across these rings from Accessorize and thought they would be a lovely gift to give each of the bridesmaids, or to important ladies on the day. After all, if you are getting a new ring, shouldn’t they?

The Venue

The most perfect venue for this style of wedding would be a circus tent or a Big Top . The vibrant colours of the tent would really add to the atmosphere, especially once the evenings entertainment kicks in!

The Entertainment

The Iron Boot Scrapers are a fantastic busking band. They really stand out as being one of a kind! They play modern hits from popular artists such as Muse and Rhianna, but in a traditional style with Jazz instruments including sousaphone and banjo!

The Props

These amazing light up letters from Doris Loves would be the icing on the cake for a carnival themed wedding! They are real show stoppers! They are battery powered so no need to worry about electricity, and you could have whatever words you wanted spelled out!

The DIY Tutorial

This ring toss DIY is so simple but would really add an element of fun to your reception.

 

I hope you enjoyed todays Carnival wedding theme idea. I’d love to know what you like best, and if you have seen anything that fits in with this theme!

  1. YES. LOVE IT. My future wedding is definitely going to be a circus-y carnival theme. I might have to purchase some light up letters regardless of upcoming nuptials. Maybe if I buy enough of them T will pop the question just to save our bank balance :p xxx
