Mardi Gras Inspired Wedding Details

Mardi Gras Inspired Wedding Details



Colorful décor, festive masks, fleur de lis details and beyond. What better way to celebrate than a Mardi Gras wedding?

Let the Good Times Roll


Hint at the Mardi Gras theme using a fun motif for your invites and paper goods. Think fleur de lis, masquerade masks or in this case, king crowns.

Masquerade Flair


You can totally get away with pairing dramatic accessories while keeping a more traditional bridal look. Throw on a masquerade mask, rock a black lace wedding dress or choose a little bit of both.

Combined Traditions


Speaking of accessories, parasols are must-haves. Get creative by combining them with the classic green (faith), gold (power) and purple (justice) scheme throughout your details.

Parade Throws


It never hurts to have a little extra good luck, right? That being said, bring on the beads! In true Mardi Gras fashion, have your guests throw them in place of rice or confetti.

French Quarter Style


Channel the vintage romance of the French Quarter through your reception décor. Set the scene with a lush garden and purple jewel toned details reflective of the Mardi Gras palette.

Royal Whimsy


For festive place cards, tie in small crowns at each place setting. It’s slightly offbeat yet true to the theme.

Cajun Cocktail Hour


Add a taste of New Orleans to your cocktail hour eats. Fried shrimp or oysters pair well with beer or wine.

Sugar Coated Sweetness


For a sweeter appetizer or dessert table dish, treat everyone to beignets. It’s a great break from a spicy Cajun wedding menu.

Fit For a King (or Queen)


Of course, you can’t forget the king cake for a true Mardi Gras celebration. For extra flair, add a mask cake topper just like this wedding.
