Get the Look: A Vintage Circus Wedding

I’ve been seeing lots of fun circus weddings lately so I thought it would be helpful to create a styling guide for anyone else out there who might be thinking it would be fun to have a circus inspired wedding! I LOVED the circus wedding we shared this morning and this old world circus wedding from the archives is one of my all-time faves! So many ways to put your own spin on this theme and hope this helps for those interested!
