SO…I told you it was coming! After my balloon post from last week, I couldn’t help but be inspired by the above photo and get excited for the events during this time of year! THE FAIR IS COMING TO TOWN!!! Call me old fashioned, but I LOVE  me a good fair, or maybe I should say, the tradition of the fair. The ferris wheel, games, caramel apples, cotton candy;  now imagine all those timeless accents glamour-ized into a WEDDING! Sounds AMMMM-AZZING! Will somebody PLEASE plan this wedding and invite me already! Here’s a couple ideas on how your fair, circus, carnival style wedding can be UNIQUE, FUN, and FABULOUS all rolled into one.

Ladies and Gents you are invited! Love this wording for an invite:

Love these color schemes, reds, with pastels, and patterns! FANTASTIC! Also, I can’t help but love the vintage feel this theme has to offer as well, the pinwheels, banners, and round bulb lighting you’ll see in photos to come. BUT for now check out the details in these pretty cakes:

Do you feel inspired?! How about excited for the FAIR?!? I feel both! You could be the “Fairest of the Fair” if you choose to do this theme, and it won’t be able to help but be “The Big Show” of the year! Okay, I’ll stop already! BUT someone PLEASE plan this wedding or I’m going to have to talk to my husband about renting me a ferris wheel and getting married again, AGAIN! I’m sure he’ll go for that! 🙂 ANYHOW, HAPPY FAIR TIME ALL! Enjoy your corn dogs ladies and gents!

{ DOGS in WEDDINGS: Fun Ways to Include your Four-Legged Loves }

Dog

Okay, so anyone that knows me, knows I might have a slight obsession with my “fur-children”. I must admit, I’ve had floral arrangements and cupcakes made to look like my beloved fur-child, Chug, mostly as a joke, but, nonetheless a girl has done it! The truth is our pets have taken more of a staple in our lives than ever before and truly are considered family members. A lot of brides and grooms are trying to find unique and practical ideas to incorporate their four-legged family members in their special day. I definitely don’t suggest you do floral center pieces that resemble your dogs, cats, horses, etc., but to each their own; sometimes that stuff is downright hilarious! Anyhow, here are some fun, practical, and may I even say, CLASSY ideas to include your furry-family members and add a little more sweetness to your day!

How about a “getting ready” photo with your fur-family member, just in case they have to stay at home for the occasion. It’s like a dream of fancy and fluffiness!

94d988fced672c4b5ee3fdd9fe337a51

Tuxes and bowties on fur children, it’s like cuteness OVERLOAD! If you can’t find a website, there’s great makers of these adorable outfits on pinterest and etsy. Even if they’re used just for a flower or shoe photo opp, could there be any cuter props for accessories!

OR have you seen these floral collars to match your flowers, the sweetness is unbearable!

ee32f67b23bc0297e123e52398c1637f

Now, if you have a well trained fur-family member and are doing an outdoor wedding, here’s some FAB fur-friendly ideas! Pretty floral leashes, and those cute kiddos once known as flower girls or ring bearers, new duty of adding SO much cuteness, we can hardly handle!

4161294801a3b6d5d6ce14c8816a5962

Okay and I must add! I’m loving the new trend of the big round balloons! So, here’s a fun idea that I can’t get enough of too! Balloons on a fur child!

cf393e8d0d8947c8d141eca77feedbe1

But maybe these balloons instead?! In your color scheme of course!

OR add the newest and cutest messenger for the, “Here Comes the Bride” sign!

e27658eb8733f64d00b33201b6f828c3

If your fur-family members aren’t wonderfully trained, you can still can get away with a great family photo like this:

aa2c6e241ef199dec89180fc1ad96708

Four words: CUTEST CAKE TOPPERS EVER! (These both can be found on Pinterest!)

f3f62b292f7e22b198f4c37d5b1be1ba

 

OR groom’s cakes are definitely a fun way to get away with adding a little crazy personality! Maybe we shouldn’t be so bias; let’s just call them “Personality Cakes”! It’s wild how crafty cakes have become in the last how many years, but what a perfect day to make a splurge and jump on the cake-fabulousity-wagon!

 

Okay, okay, to your pure devastation maybe it’s just inconceivable to have your dog’s presence at your wedding. Chin up friend! There’s always “Save the Dates”!

0b46f7e45f1c2e3686276c9a3a839ae7

Hope you enjoyed you, fur-friend-lovers, you!
