vintage circus wedding theme

Your wedding is a festive and fun celebration. And what is more festive and fun than a circus? This theme is perfect for the couple that likes to spice things up a little. If done correctly, a circus themed wedding can be truly spectacular. And by adding vintage elements, this theme becomes very whimsical.

Here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Rent a circus-style tent or marquee for the reception.
  • Let your MC wear a ring master’s outfit.
  • Play circus music while your guests enter the reception venue.
  • Dress your flower girls up in cute little tutus.
  • Decorate your venue with lots of bunting and balloons.
  • Hire a juggler, fire-breather, contortionist or stilts artist as entertainment for your guests.
  • Treat your guests with candyfloss, candy apples or popcorn.
  • A red, blue and cream colour scheme works very well with this theme.
  • Ask your guests to dress up as show girls, clowns, mobsters or strong men.
  • Include lots of tassels, stripes and bold colours in your wedding stationery and décor.
  • You as the bride can wear a pretty top hat and Fluevog style shoes.
  • Use spot-lights at your reception.
  • Use pinwheels, feathers and vintage photographs of circus animals (elephants, tigers etc.) and performance artists in your wedding stationery and décor.
