Creative Use of Wedding Balloons

Thinking of a fun and creative detail to add vibrancy and colour to your wedding venue and day in general? The answer to your prayers might just be a simple solution, like balloons. Helping to add fun, colour and child-like wonderment when used in the right way, balloons can help transform your wedding celebrations, enhance any wedding venue décor and help build on a desirable atmosphere for your wedding day. Here we list 5 ideas on how to include balloons throughout your day.

CEREMONY INCLUSION
There are endless ways to incorporate balloons into your wedding ceremony. Use balloons as aisle runners, make your guests swoon with your pageboys or flower girls holding a suitable balloon prop or incorporate a wedding ceremony backdrop or archway into your décor.

BACKDROP FOR PHOTOS
Speaking of backdrops, balloons provide some a unique backdrop or prop for amazing photo opportunities throughout your day. A cleverly thought out display or singular use can create a unique captured moment for your wedding album.

A REPLACEMENT OR COMPLEMENT TO YOUR WEDDING SIGNAGE
Add a little twist to your signage and displays with letter balloons or message balloons to create a unique alternative. Another idea would be to accentuate your signage with a complimentary balloon or spray. If you missed our wedding piece on signage, you can check it out at this link here.

CAKE TABLE PROPS
Your wedding cake is often a showpiece of your day, and as such will require some thoughts into display ideas. We are absolutely in love with this gorgeous cake table display we came across researching this piece, especially the creative use of helium balloons to make mini "hot air balloons".

TO END THE EVENING
Whether it’s a symbolic release for loved ones who could not be present on the day or perhaps simply for aesthetic reasons, a balloon release similar to Chinese lanterns or fireworks can make for a pretty and colourful end to the evening reception and be a suitable time filler as your band or DJ get set up.
