Balloons have always symbolized a fun party and celebration. Recently they’ve made a comeback in wedding décor in a big way!

If you love the idea of having pops of color in all shapes and sizes for your decor, continue reading for creative ways to incorporate balloons into your wedding.

Engagement Photo Shoot

Your engagement photo shoot is a special time to share your love and unspoken connection with the world. The photoshoot often includes intimate looks or affection; however, don’t forget to be sassy and fun and include some playful shots. Red heart-shaped balloons add a new element to the photos and create a very sweet touch!

Flower Girl

An easy way to incorporate balloons into your wedding ceremony is to have your ring bearer or flower girl walk down the aisle with brightly colored balloons. The unexpected twist will bring some fun and excitement to the ceremony and makes for amazing photographs. Your little helpers will like the task even better with balloons too!

Tied To Chairs

If you want to use balloons in your wedding venue decor, the best place to tie them is to the back of guests’ chairs. White balloons make a beautiful backdrop, and you can have fun coming up with words to write on them in metallic marker. For example, writing you and your partner’s initials and your wedding date serves as a great party favor for your guests to take home.

Getaway Car

Tie balloons to your getaway car over the “Just Married” banner for a fun addition and a great photo opp! Or stuff the car with balloons.

End The Reception

It’s tradition to have your guests toss petals or rice as you leave the ceremony, but marking the celebration by releasing balloons in the air is a great alternative. Also, wedding receptions have a closing celebration such as fireworks or wish lanterns, but releasing colorful balloons into the sky is a beautiful way to end your wedding day. Make sure any balloons that are released are biodegradable latex balloons without any attachments of ribbon!
