Circus, carnival and fair wedding themes are bang on-trend amongst brides right now and work really well with a less formal venue (good news for brides on a budget!). If you fancy yourself as a vintage circus bride, a la Reese Witherspoon in the beautiful film Water for Elephants, take a look at Jenny Packham’s wedding dresses and accessories for lustful inspiration.
The good news about this theme is that a little styling goes a long way, keeping it healthy for your budget and your time. Think bright and fun accessories with a palette of reds, blues and creams. Stationary, table plans and place cards can be tied in with the use of letterpress fonts (as seen in today’s style board).
For those who really want to bring the fun of the carnival to their big day, go the whole hog and hire some real sideshows and games such as a coconut shy, tin can ally and hook-a-duck! (Try http://www.irvinleisure.co.uk for an idea of what stalls and rides are available). Enjoy today’s style board and feel free to get in touch with any requests for themes or features 🙂
