The Great Minnesota Get-Together is right around the corner and has us thinking about all things State Fair! If you and your fiancé love the state fair, why not incorporate that into your wedding? We have ideas for a cotton candy wedding theme that has a nostalgic, old-school fair feel with a modern twist.
First things first, welcome your guests with an unforgettable signature cocktail. For this Cotton Candy Cocktail, have your bartender rim a champagne glass with pink sprinkles, fill it with bubbly rosé, and top it with fluffy cotton candy.
For decor, play up the pastel blues and pinks in your tabletop and floral design. Sprinkle in metallics for dimension and iridescent glassware for a fun play on average wine glasses. Incorporate a waterfall balloon installation at the entrance of your reception to help set the tone of your fair-inspired affair.
One thing that is trending in weddings is making your dessert table an experience rather than just the standard cake serving. Bring in an on-site cotton candy machine service where guests can be a served freshly-spun treat. Add other desserts that blend nostalgia with modern flair, and don’t forget about fair foods like mini corn dogs, cheese curds, and really anything on a stick.
And finally, the fashion! The whole wedding party can get in on the cotton candy wedding theme. For the bride, consider a blush sparkly ball gown or one with lots of fun layers. Blue is a very popular color for wedding parties so having them rock a blue gown or suit will blend perfectly with your theme.
See the cotton candy wedding theme for yourself at the Twin Cities Bridal Show coming up on Sunday, September 26th, in St. Paul! We’ll have this curated fair-themed mini-wedding plus five more carefully designed displays for you to peruse.
