Carnival Wedding Food ideas

Street food would work really well at a carnival themed wedding , or food stations serving hotdogs, bowl food and sliders, informal dining is key to this style.  Finish with candy floss, popcorn, toffee apples and donuts to get a fix of sweetness so soak up that alchohol.

Wedding Props and Entertainment

Beautiful colourful signs and festoon lighting would really set the scene for a carnival wedding theme. Entertainment booths setup with temporary tattoo’s or even a kissing booth would look great. Add simple retro games perhaps a coconut shy or hook a duck which could all be done DIY to keep costs down.
