Summer is nearly upon us and although we love the cosiness of winter and the fresh smell of spring, how we have missed those glorious rays of sunshine!
Longer days and hotter climes give those planning their big day in the summer months much more scope for reception location. No longer are you confined to the constraints of central heating, it is time to take full advantage of the great outdoors and what better way to do so than with a fun and fabulous carnival theme…
Carnivals are brimming with big and bold sights, sounds and smells that you can incorporate into your day, from colourful oversize balloons and boxes of popcorn to fairground rides - the possibilities are endless. For that extra (helpful) touch, why not bring in your very own ringmaster with one of our Toastmasters. There to ensure your day goes without a hitch, their red coat tails will also work brilliantly with this theme.
Add to the carnival feel and keep everyone amused during photographs with a Magician or Caricaturist circulating amongst your guests. Music by The Waffle Grippers, tailoring their eclectic blend of country, folk, bluegrass and ceilidh to suit your event, or mariachi band Tequila Slammers sets the pre dinner scene and ensures everyone is kept constantly entertained.
Carnival wedding themes offer the perfect opportunity to get creative with your table décor. Vintage lollipops in your chosen colours work as superb, inexpensive wedding favours, whilst mini carousels set amongst bunches of bright blooms and candles make fun centrepieces. Ticket stub style name places finish the look and help to pull the theme together.
For the ultimate in carnival style nourishment, food stalls are the way to go. From popcorn to candyfloss, sweet stops to street food, there are lots of options that will look and taste fantastic.
Never has there been a theme better fit for a Photo Booth! Make it your own by providing carnival themed accessories such as bearded lady masks and red noses alongside the usual moustaches, hats and wigs. For your evening entertainment it is time to turn up the wow factor with our awe inspiring Toast Fire Performers, a match made in heaven when performing alongside an amazing party band like The 88s or Shine.
Finally, make sure your special day goes down in wedding history and keep the party going strong with a light up dance floor and our Toast DJ spinning the decks until the early hours. It is sure to be a night you and your guests will never forget!
