These updated vintage designs from Checkerboard are an amazing way to start guests wondering about your magical wedding. The hot air balloon envelope liner is unique, and the matching reception cards, R.S.V.P. cards, and direction cards all add to the theatrical theme. Invitations by Checkerboard

Hosting a circus wedding is as easy as finding the perfect big top! Whether day or night, a big tent is a fun and exciting venue for a summer wedding. At night, be sure to provide enough twinkly lighting to keep the magic going late into the night. Tent on StyleMePretty.com

Floral arrangements can be kept simple. Play up the color of circuses and tie a large red and white striped ribbon on your favorite flowers for a simple and sophisticated look. Circus Whimsy Hydrangea Bouquet by InspiringPretty.com

Instead of throwing confetti or rice at the ceremony, have ushers hand out plain popcorn in individual bags so guests are able to toss the popped kernels at the newly married couple! Paper straws are always a fun addition to any party, and add to the vintage feel of the night. Paperstraws and Popcorn by KatForsyth.com

Rent an old vintage photo booth and complete the activity with paper props! Top hots, mustaches, and other circus characters make for a fun photo opp. Have the prints come with a yellow vintage filter to make them feel authentic. Photobooth Poster by TheManicMoose

Carousels are a staple at any carnival. Be sure to snap as many shots as possible by the fantastic landmark. Carnival Carousel Shot by CreativeShindig.com
