A carnival themed wedding might literally be the funnest and silliest day of your life, and it can still retain an air of elegance if you plan it right.

Lord of the Rings
You don’t have to dress up as Gandalf or Treebeard to have a Lord of the Rings themed wedding. A magical woodland setting could play host to a good old fashioned hobbit shindig, or you could opt for a dramatic castle venue and host a grand feast with large thrones for the newlyweds. An event like this could be made all the better by getting your guests to don their outfits and set the scene just like Sean Parker did when he tied the knot with Alexandra Lenas.
