Carnival Wedding Ideas

I have heard so many brides lately say: “I want our guests to have fun at our wedding.  I want them to have a good time!”  What better way to inspire a fun and care-free atmosphere than taking them back to the good old days of a carnival?  Let the Sioux Falls Convention Center set the stage with the tent look of our ceiling draping, add some twinkling chandeliers and a mixture of popular carnival colored up-lights.  Now for the food, your guests will love chowing down on carnival-inspired favorites.  How about we start with some bright-colored candies and old time favorites, like gum balls, lollipops and sour candies on your candy bar.  Next, have the theme reflected in your menu with more casual snack fare, such as pretzels, hot dogs and mini-donuts.  There’s nothing wrong with making the theme of your wedding simply “fun” or your “favorite things.” The possibilities are endless when it comes to picking out fun food and even games and activities for your guests.  The Sioux Falls Convention Center has reception spaces that are large enough where you can even add a carnival area with ring toss, bean bags, horse shoes and can you image…a bouncy house.  Watching cotton candy being made and the colored sugar spinning around is captivating for any kid, and adult, you could even incorporate your wedding colors.  And the end result is a sweet treat that melts in your mouth.  Serve it in ready-made bags or have it spun onto swirl sticks.  Everyone loves the smell of freshly popped popcorn and guests will love snacking on different sweet and salty varieties, let us set up a popcorn bar and your guests will be able to choose their favorites.  Waffle cones aren’t just for ice cream (although they are usually the best part!) Use the cones as a display for fruit.  Let your wedding party and guests cool off with another treat in cone form with snow cones.  The flavored ice can be made in a variety of colors and flavors to suit your fancy.  The Sioux Falls Convention Center recently did this as a late night snack for a group and offered the traditional favorites and for the adults provided alcoholic snow cones in lime tequila and strawberry daiquiri.  For additional late night fare, try some hot dogs and hamburgers with various toppings and fixings.  Book your wedding reception at the Sioux Falls Convention Center and let us take care of creating the fun time you are envisioning.
