Carnival as a wedding reception?
Has anyone gone beyond just a carnival themed reception to be an actual carnival complete with rides and games? What was the cost, and was the experience worth it? Did you have a large or small group to entertain?

Re: Carnival as a wedding reception?
As a guest, I would not be comfortable at a straight up carnival wedding. I think the theme can be done really well (see
link for some beautiful ideas
) but I think that rides and games take it a step too far. I would be concerned about safety, for one, and I probably would not dress for a wedding the same way I'd dress for a carnival. It would be unexpected and I likely wouldn't want to particpate in any of the rides and games.
Offer me some cotton candy and funnel cake, though, and I'm all for it
I'd stick to a few themed foods and some decor infused with "carnival" but steer clear of taking the focus off your marriage and onto carnies.
