All of this wonderful sunny weather we’ve been having must be going to my head. I’ve been dreaming of warm summer days with carefree, fun activities. But I’m not the only one as I came across some proof with a fun roundup post inspired from some serious pinterest pinning.

Each theme keeps it simple with a specific inspiration for their theme, fun DIY touches and the right styling that goes a long way.
Weddingchicks.com’s “Carnival Wedding Theme” sets the tone with a sophisticated carnival color palette that is juxtaposed with some fun prints and treats. Powder blue, blush pink and bold red lay the ground for a nostalgic feel along with the bride’s veil styling. The colors are repeated throughout the wedding flowers, red anemones, billy balls, blush peonies, blue hydrangeas. Lightening up the mood are swirled blue lollipops arranged within the bouquet of flowers.
The carnival theme comes through in the sweets menu with assorted candy, rock candy, popcorn and donut parfait sundaes. DIY paper pinwheels accent the fun vibe at the dessert table. Keep in mind going with a carnival inspired wedding theme is a great opportunity to utilize two hot wedding trends, the food truck and or dessert bars at the reception.
Now sticking with more delicious treats Southern Wedding’s “State Fair Wedding” is all “southern”. Down to the corndog paper wedding save the date, food is part of this theme through and through. The State Fair theme beckons the carefree days of summer with bright yellow, orange and pink through decor and wedding flowers.
