I’ve seen a few weddings with the theme before and have always loved the fun, colorful, eclectic vibes and gorgeous blend of whimsy and romance. It’s kind of impossible not to feel like a kid at heart when attending an event with a carnival theme, and what better time to incorporate games into a celebration? But finding those little extras to help pull the whole thing together can be a little tough.Have no fear, though, my dear, because our homies over at Beau-Coup have tons of the little details that can make a big impact on your wedding day, and they have no shortage of goodies that would be perfect for a carnival wedding.

Rock Candy on a Stick, $150 for a box of 120

How freaking adorable are these?!? Snag a bunch in your colors to serve as favors or just scatter them through the reception space for a fun visual detail.

Skip the standard chair sashes or signs and let these fun tasseled balloons hover over your chairs.
