We see all sorts of fabulous decorations, table settings, favours and themes come through the door here at Smiths Hotel with many of our Gretna Green weddings having their wedding breakfast with us! From traditional and romantic to bespoke, fun and festive, in any colour imaginable! Every once in a while, one appears that captures our imagination! So we decided we’d start a new theme….a Wedding Focus of the Month!
Starting us off is this fantastic and fun carnival theme from a February wedding! We all wanted to join the party….especially with the disco going and the raffle prizes to be won!
The fun started even before one got through the door! The seating chart was made up of bags of ‘goldfish’each with the name of a guest….who were admitted entry only after picking up their fish!
Then one reached the tables! Guests were treated to table favours of tubs of popcorn and candy floss bringing back memories of the carnival! Remember trying to hook prizes floating in a barrel?? The tablecentres were bowls filled with bright rubber ducks….complete with rods to fish them out – just like at the fair!
Who doesn’t love a raffle….winning tubs of sweets or adorable stuffed animals?? Guests of this wedding were in for a trip down memory lane, bringing back memories of happily heading out the fair gates with prizes clutched tightly!
Last, but certainly not least, the cake of course! The main two tier cake was topped with a Lego Bride and Groom surrounded with highly decorated cupcakes displayed on a Ferris wheel! How fun is that!
