8 Carnival Theme Wedding Ideas
First things first, you need to make a dramatic entrance - it is your wedding day after all. The retro ‘Welcome to the Carnival’ decor idea is perfect for those hoping to emulate a vintage carnival wedding reception, featuring bright balloons entwined on the poles and a huge sign that the guests will not miss. Along with this, you’ve got a green carpet entrance for that VIP circus theme experience, and you could even add optional extras for an additional exciting touch. These extras include circus characters to meet and greet your guests - ideal for carnival weddings.
Only try if you think you are hard enough… Make way for an extra special guest at your wedding, Strongman Hugo. His carnival wedding game is a brand-new addition to the funfair wedding ideas, and all you have to do is hit the lever as hard as you can, for the puck to rise and ring the bell. Staff will man the ‘Test Your Strength’ funfair game at your wedding (to ensure there isn’t any cheating between guests) and there’ll even be prizes for those that can ring the bell.
The tin can game is a part of everyone’s childhood - and now your wedding day. For a vintage carnival wedding, you can’t beat the game of knocking over tin cans with bean bags, reminiscent of your school P.E days. The Tin Can Alley boasts tin cans on shelves and is guaranteed fun for everyone at your circus themed wedding.
Your carnival wedding reception is not the only slam dunk. The impressive Basketball Shootout is for the ballers at your wedding, along with every other guest. Earn points by shooting the ball straight through the hoop and get competitive with extra points for those trickier shots. Available in bright red, this funfair game idea compliments any circus themed wedding and is certain to attract even more attention than the speeches.
Roll up, roll up for one of the greatest circus theme party games. Roll a Ball is inspired by the ‘horse racing’ games you used to see at the fair and entails you rolling the ball, to receive points. So far, so simple, but you have to avoid the red holes and aim for green for those elusive points. The huge funfair game is suitable for two players at a time, creating the very first competition for the Bride and Groom as man and wife.
Everyone loves playing darts, and now you can incorporate it into your carnival themed wedding. One of the finest circus ideas for carnival weddings, Blackjack Darts, is precisely what you’d expect; aim to make blackjack by hitting two of the cards. It will test your eye, precision and just how much you’ve had to drink at the wedding reception.
If there’s one thing your carnival themed wedding deserves, it’s a photo booth to treasure the memories. A photo booth is a fantastic option for your guests to take away pictures, and for you, it solves the questions regarding favours. In keeping with the theme, you could also get circus themed props.
You’ve got the games, and now you need the carnival themed decorations. With that in mind, along with our funfair games, we also provide bunting for your venue. Nothing says a circus themed wedding, quite like bunting. The bunting also only scratches the surface, as we’ll provide scorecards to keep your guests in check and a bottle of bubbly for the ultimate winner of the day.
