Perhaps the quintesesntial decorative item, it is a rarity to go to any couple's big day and not see wedding balloons in some for or another. This article takes a closer look at wedding balloons and provides some inspirational ideas and tips on how to use them to their best.



Balloon Colours & Designs

Available in a whole host of colours and sizes, wedding balloons can range from the plain variety that is the mainstay of children's birthday parties, through to the more sleek and sophisticated opaque design which can help to add a touch of class. For those after something a little different, wedding balloons can be printed with horseshoes, wedding day wishes or even personalised with the names of the happy couple and the wedding date. Another alternative is to steer away from the tradtion, and opt for wedding balloons in heart or other shapes.


Unique Wedding Balloons

For those looking for a more elaborate style of balloon, large wedding balloons filled with smaller ones and/or confetti can really add intrigue and interest. For an even greater impact, you could even arrange for them to be triggered to explode during the evening's festivities showering the guests on the dance floor and creating amazing reactions and delight.


For something a little different, why not place air-filled wedding balloons in a net above the dance floor and release them during the first dance? Alternatively, you could consider a mass 'balloon release' whereby helium filled wedding balloons would be passed out amongst the guests, or placed in a giant net, and then set free on the command of, or by, the couple - you could even tie luggage style tags on to them with your name and wedding date

Positioning the Balloons

Much of the decorative effect of wedding balloons is obtained from their grouping and positioning. For example, single balloons sticky-taped to the walls will give off little of an impression, but balloons placed in groups of 3 or 5 (or more) that are scattered in key areas of the venue and tied together with swags of ribbon or tulle can really help set the scene. Likewise, wedding balloon arches and arcs over doorways can create a dramtic focal point.
