Fun and creative ways to use balloons on your wedding day

Because a party isn’t really a party without balloons

Big, bouncy and budget friendly, balloons bring out the big kid in all of us and are perfect for adding a pop of colour to your wedding day decor.

A party isn’t really a party without balloons.  Here’s some of our favourite ways to incorporate this popular trend into your wedding day celebrations

Table centrepieces

Create some drama by floating huge balloons from your tables. Pick a colour that complements your theme and make the inflatable double up as your table numbers by writing numbers on them.

TIP: If you’ve children at your wedding, give each of them a big balloon to take home at the end of the day. You’ll be the best bride ever!

Aisle runners

Cheaper than flowers, tie balloons to the end chair in each row to mark out the aisle –  too cute!

You can have endless fun with over-sized balloons in your wedding pictures – hide behind them, float them, release them…it’s up to you. Choose bold colours to make your pictures pop!

Scene setter

Set the mood by decorating your entrance hall or reception room with bunches of big balloons – we love the ones with tassels or filled with confetti for extra fun. Create a balloon wall as backdrop for your wedding cake or write fun captions on these fun props and encourage your guests to use them in their pictures.
