How to Throw a Super Stylish, Super COOL Carnival Wedding

Super stylish Sunday returns! Not only was I absolutely in love with our Super Stylish post last week, but I received such incredible feedback from all of you, that I thought I would keep it going! But, don't worry brideys, I'm not losing my edge; this is all part of your education. As you know, I always have your best interests in mind, and the more options you realize are available to you, the less of a bitch you will be during your planning! See where I'm going with this?

I mean, look at this amazing bride! Her dress is gorgeous, and the color is just exploding behind her! And OMG! Notice the flower necklace? Completely fucking fantastic. Right? I'm so used to seeing diamond and pearl necklaces that when I see something so extraordinarily rockin' and different, I have to point it out!

As a planner, the three pictures above put tears in my eyes. Seriously, I'm crying as I'm writing... This is a carnival theme brideys... A theme that has serious trashy and super cheesy potential. And what I am showing you today are all the ways it can be done well. So pay attention!

I'm one of the people who is absolutely addicted to popcorn, candy and cake. Really... I workout to support my eating habit. True story. So when I see popcorn at a wedding? I need to have some alone time... Just me, the popcorn (usually sprinkled with M&Ms or other candy!) and some soda. Everybody else can be whooping it up on the dance floor and there's BB, sitting alone, wolfing down some tasty treats in a corner somewhere! For me? Popcorn and candy at a wedding? Priceless...

I thought these mini cherry pies would provide a necessary energy boost if passed on the dance floor. Picture these on a tray with a tall shot glass of vanilla milk... Yeah... A totally delicious, two-bite experience washed down with some ice cold goodness. No need to leave the floor!

I love this invitation. I also love that is is displayed at the actual wedding with some cool décor. See bridey? You don't need a lot of moola to make it awesome! SPEAKING OF AWESOME... See the picture next to the invitation? I am drooling right now. I am OBSESSED with cotton candy... I look forward to baseball games just so I can eat the damn cotton candy! I know... I'm crazy, but it's the truth! Again, something cool for your guests that's relatively inexpensive.

There you have it brideys... Carnival theme. Done well, and not cheesy. What cool ideas do you want to share with us?
