Mardi Gras Wedding

Celebrate your wedding with a truly different and memorable experience with a Mardi Gras wedding theme. Set the right tone for your Mardi Gras wedding with colors such as purple, green, and gold. The bride can wear a wedding gown in traditional white, look stunningly sexy in gold or have beaded details on your gown for an eccentric look.

Your bridesmaids can don dresses in a fun mix of these colors. Purple and green, for instance, can make a great combination. For the groom and the ushers, a tuxedo in traditional Mardi Gras colors is the ideal way to go. You can also try Mardi Gras-inspired vests and ties such as harlequin patterns or diamond patterns in all three colors. Pair it with matching beaded accessories or those highlighting masks.

You can also find flowers in Mardi Gras colors as well, or you can go for a single-colored flower. Use a ribbon to represent the color of your choice, hang beads or include feathers into your wedding bouquet. For example, you can wrap white flowers in gold ribbon with gold Mardi Gras beads hanging down for a stunning floral arrangement. In addition, instead of dropping petals as the bride walks down the aisle, you can toss doubloons to either side.

A parade from the wedding ceremony to the reception is a great way to plan out your Mardi Gras wedding theme. However, if the distance is very long, you can stop your cars about a block or two away from the reception venue so that you can parade into the reception hall. Have balloons, confetti, masks and parasols passed out to your wedding guests or toss doubloons and beads as well. Request them to line the streets as the parade is up too. And don’t forget to play jazz music for a truly festive Mardi Gras wedding.

Transforming your reception venue into all that Mardi Gras jazz is quite simple. Use the three colors all throughout. Fill treasure chests with chocolate doubloons on every table or have coins embossed with your wedding particulars too. Put beads aplenty as decoration and for your guests to put on as well. Additionally, use balloons or Mardi Gras masks as centerpieces too.

Serve food Mardi Gras style by giving a touch of Cajun to it. Jambalaya, shrimp etouffee and traditional gumbo are popular Mardi Gras food choices too. Serve boiled crawfish, muffalettas or small po’boy sandwiches as appetizers as well. Decorate your wedding cake with beads, doubloons or masks and don’t forget to offer King Cakes, which is a traditional and sweet Mardi Gras treat.

However you want to celebrate your Mardi Gras-inspired wedding, don’t forget to enjoy the moment! So, let the fun and festivities roll with Mardi Gras wedding themes.
