"Mardi Gras" Inspired Wedding

Everyone loves a good wedding, and we are obviously no exception.  We love when our brides think outside the box, and include creative themes or even plan their weddings around a holiday!  One challenge brides are sometimes faced with is how to include their theme without feeling stuck in a certain color palette or sticking too close to the theme and ending up seeming cheesy.  Here at Courtenay Lambert Floral & Event Design we couldn't help but get inspired by some gorgeous Mardi Gras images, where we felt they interpreted the theme really well.   

Check out our Mardi Gras Pinterest page for even more Mardi Gras inspiration and photo credits.

How fun is this Venetian mask?   The beautiful emerald color and hints of black and gold add a hint of mystery and glamour.

New Orleans, the city where Mardi Gras is King!  We love how these invitations by PostScript Brooklyn pay homage to this amazing city with a touch of vintage revelry.

This black and white color palette is the perfect backdrop for a Mardi Gras wedding.  Letting the traditional Mardi Gras colors (purple, green and gold) play a supporting role in the day ensures a timeless and elegant wedding without letting the theme dominate the importance of the celebration.

The key to any good party is making sure your guests have a good time.  That's one reason we think a Mardi Gras themed wedding is so perfect!  With street performers, marching bands, frozen hurricanes and beignet bars (just to name a few)  there are so many ways to entertain and delight your guests throughout the evening!
