County Fair-Inspired Wedding for Winifredbean.com

WEEKLY WEDDING LOOK – COUNTY FAIR, PART II

August 6, 2013

Few summer events are as whimsical and delicious as County Fairs. Infuse your own summer wedding with this country-style fun. Think food-on-a-stick, outrageously cute candy bars, and custom chalkboards to spell out your love. Start with a pastel palette with pops of vibrant red that lends to a country chic vibe. A simple exchanging of vows is given a playful twist with extra large balloons floating above the couples’ head. Lead your guests to their seats with name cards arranged in carnival-like crates of peanuts. Long, wooden, family-style tables are numbered with coveted Blue Ribbons and sit below strings of globe lights. Give fair food a gourmet upgrade with delectable bites such as duck confit corndogs and salty, buttery popcorn in personalized paper bags. Lastly, send guests home with a Blue Ribbon-worthy dessert bar as sweet as your County Fair-themed wedding.
