5 Tips for a Whimsical Circus Themed Wedding
When you were young, and the circus came to town, you knew there was going to be fun. Till today the sense of excitement has never stopped. Combine it with a wedding, and you get a fantastic celebration! Why not create a bright, colourful, handmade wedding with the flair of a whimsical circus? If you love bold colour choices, quirky details and non-traditional elements, this wedding theme is for you. Below are 5 tips to keep in mind when you plan your whimsical circus themed wedding.
1. Circus Themed Decor
Design a DIY wedding with bright decorations and unique vintage twists to surprise your guests! With a cigar girl, quirky pinwheel bouquets, boutonnieres and carnival-like games, your wedding will be full of glee! Entertainment options to rent are equipment and vendors for your wedding reception, such as the big tops, and popcorn or fairy floss machines. There are even “circus performers”- trapeze artists and more! Think about hiring different “acts” (such as the ragdoll, serial ring artist and hula hoops). The theme can also appear in your DIY vintage, carnival-style marquee letters, fun signs (such as for popcorn and games), paper straws, colourful invitations, refrigerator box ticket, photo and kissing booths, circus tent, and tin cans. The gorgeous china and linens have festive designs and the florals are the perfect touch you’ll love! (Remember a good photographer for capturing this cheery design!)
2. Unique Food and Fun Flavours
For a vintage circus themed wedding, get your hands on the wedding food, since such a wedding should be packed with plenty of good foods. Make the guests enjoy unique cakes and fun flavours. Treat them to fresh popcorn, candy and cute mini cupcakes or donuts! Add the renditions of hot dogs and funnel cakes, and spend the evening playing games, or sip wine by the old truck drink stand, out of vintage coke bottles with red and white striped straws!

Or make use of nature, the country, a garden, forest, an island or zoo! Think about a restaurant or even your home for your circus themed wedding!!
5. Your Own Style Whimsical Wedding

Imagine a whimsical pink garden wedding! Or, you finally tied the knot so there’s no question. You decided on an intimate whimsical wedding! There’s also the modern, or a patterned whimsical celebration!
