A trend that is still very popular, oversized balloons look stunning. They can make for breath-taking photos and they are great fun for the younger guests too, if you’ve got Paige boys and flower girls, then why not consider having special oversized balloons just for them to make them feel extra special. Look for balloons with tassels, colours that fit in with your palette and if you’re a DIY lover then why not consider covering them with tulle or netting for a really unique look.
Whether you want to spell out LOVE or your names of just have your initials, letter balloons make incredible photo props. Think about different colours and make sure they are large enough to have an in impact in your wedding photos.
For a great picture, why not consider giving everyone a balloon and get them together for a group shot, then they can all release the balloons for an epic moment you won’t forget.
If you really want to wow with something more unique, why not have each of the guests escort cards floating on the end of a balloon as they enter the pre-reception area? They can then have lots of fun finding their names and they get a balloon too!
Use balloons as alternative centrepieces by having large, or ornate balloons weighted down for each table. Get creative and paint part of them in glitter or have fun by filling them with confetti and let the tables burst them after the speeches. Also consider having just a few oversized balloons with tassels, painted with art, or in a special shape, placed in strategic locations around the venue as stunning props. And instead of tassels think about using flowers for a show-stopping effect. Don’t forget about using balloons for backdrops and arches too.
