Food

The food for a carnival wedding will be easy and a lot of fun. Create small bags of popcorn that guests can pick up whenever they want. Other “appetizers” can include cotton candy, candy apples and donuts. Create a drinking “concession stand” with lemonade, soft drinks and various other drinks that are carnival-like.

If you can secure a red and white tent, you must! What’s more carnival-like? Great handmade bunting is fun and beautiful for a carnival wedding. Think bright, beautiful colors and fresh patterns. One great way to get ideas is to look up actual pictures of the carnival and get wonderful ideas from that. Strung lights and colorful fabrics are beautiful ideas for a carnival wedding.
