It’s summer time and you know what that means!
The carnival is coming to town and you have a wedding to plan :)
Themed weddings can be a break from the traditional church going crowd.
Imagine having a Pie-in-your-Face stand instead of the traditional smearing of the cake all over your significant other. Or how about fresh popped popcorn as a welcome munchie? We know the birdies like it better than rice.
From the invitations to the person who pronounces you husband and wife (or ringmaster and ringmistress) you can have a themed wedding to fill your carny desires!

Wedding Dress: You can have long traditional wedding gown with a twist…make your gown more interesting by using a vibrant colour for the petticoat. Wouldn’t be so fantastic if your favourite colour is peeking out from under your white long gown while you’re walking down the aisle?
Wedding Reception. First dance as a couple, toast, groom removing and throwing the bride’s garter, brides throwing a bouquet, etc.etc…You can still have traditional wedding reception just add a little something special to it. You can make your reception a celebration to remember by using unique, fun signs and banners!
Integrating offbeat touches in your traditional wedding ceremony is very easy. Just think outside of the box and be bold and creative.

I asked Jennifer of ClayBouquetShop to tell me a little about herself. Here is her charming description:
I started crafting for my own wedding, as I didn't want to spend a trillion dollars (okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration), and I've always loved "creating." I was encouraged by family, friends, and wedding vendors to continue making bridal items, and here I am.
I'm a data analyst by day, working for a health insurance company. So I really enjoy coming home and creating beautiful things after running code and reports all day.
My husband and I live with our three cats, and hope to move to a sustainable home in the next year or so, with a solar/wind hybrid system, a fruit orchard and an organic garden in the plans. (If I can sneak a few alpacas, goats and chickens into the barn while my husband is sleeping, all will be right with the world. That's when I'll replace my VW, whichs run on either diesel or vegetable oil, with an EV (electric vehicle). Yep, I am pretty passionate about this.
You go girl!
