Mardi Gras Wedding Inspiration Board

One of the best parties of the year is Mardi Gras. So why not incorporate the Mardi Gras theme into your wedding to have the wedding of the year!

With influences of classic French traditions and touches of Louisiana flair your wedding will be one night to remember. Fleur de lis, beads, and decorative masks are just some ideas to get you started. But instead of integrating these ideas in a traditional and expected way, surprise your guests by using these items in a non conventional. Use famous street names of New Orleans as your table names and escort cards or keep it simple by using traditional colors of purple, green, and gold throughout your decor.  Mardi Gras is famously known for it’s parade. Have the bride and groom parade their way into the reception and use a jazz  procession as their exit.

There are so many great Mardi Gras ideas that can used for your wedding day. To help get you started, Bridal Party Tees has put together a Mardi Gras wedding inspiration board. To plan your entire wedding make sure you check out our Mardi Gras wedding pinterest page!

What makes a Bachelorette Party at Mardi Gras so unique?

Everyone is ready to party! You won’t have any trouble finding someone to buy you a shot because you’re tying the knot. The whole town is ready to get down and have fun! Tons of music, food, and drinks will fill the atmosphere with little effort from you, Maid of Honor.

The costumes! It’s tradition to get the bride, bridesmaids and other bachelorette party attendees dressed in beads, tutus, face paint, and whatever else to make your group stand out. And that’s all a part of Mardi Gras. There will be no shortage of fun costumes and vibrant colors everywhere you turn!

It’s all about the storm before the calm. Mardi Gras is a last-ditch celebration before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. A Bachelorette party is a last-ditch celebration before your bestie turns bride. Need we say more?

Mardi Gras Themed Bachelorette at Home

Thinking a Mardi Gras Bachelorette party is just what your bride ordered, but don’t have the time or money to plan a trip to NOLA? Don’t panic! It’s easy to whip together a Mardi Gras themed Bachelorette party right in your own living room!

How Do I Bring Mardi Gras Home?

First of all, your color scheme is done. Lots of purples, greens, and yellows will definitely capture the feel of Mardi Gras. Think streamers, center pieces, balloons, confetti, ribbon, and of course…  beads!

Make your own King Cake or King Cake cupcakes. Other Mardi Gras inspired dishes can be easy to prepare too, like cake pops and purple trail mix.

Grab masquerade masks in your colors from your closest party store or have the party-goers design their own with glitter, feathers, and crepe paper. There are tons of places online to find free printables. You can even put together your own purple, yellow, and green tutus!

The drinks. Hire yourself a (cute) bartender for the night to mix your girls some sweet Mardi Gras drinks!

Whether you pack your bags for Nah’leans or throw confetti all over your home, it’s essential to pull together your Bachelorette Party with Mardi Gras shirts!
