Carnival Chic Wedding: Theme Wedding Big on Fun

carnival theme wedding

Maybe it’s the neutral grey-brown hues of a winter thaw that have me craving colour. Or maybe it’s all the work I’ve been doing lately that is making me crave something playful. Whatever it is, I’ve had carnivals and circuses on the brain lately and I’ve been thinking of how much fun it would be to have a ‘carnival-chic’ wedding. One with happy foods like candy apples, cotton candy, lemonade. One with bright colors, bold stripes and laughter. One that is playful, yet stylish. I created this ‘carnival themed’ inspiration board to transport my vitamin-D deprived winter self to a sunny, summer, carnival day.

    I just googled vintage carnival theme b/c that is what my brother and sister in law are having as their wedding this Friday, and your blog popped up. It should be amazing - with ferris wheel, cotton candy, homemade icecream sandwiches, popcorn, candy bar and reds and turquoises. I will send you pics if you would like to use them on your blog. Let me know if your interested!
