Sometimes girls just want to have fun, especialy when it comes time to say “I do.” Nothing beats that child-like, carefree excitement of a day at the fairgrounds, so incorporate the carnival-chic trend at your reception. Picture whimsical games, photo booths and salty, sweet confections for your guests to enjoy. Plus, sassy bridesmaids’ dresses in bold colors heighten the thrill factor. Even more exhilarating: They’re all under $200!
