Who says balloons are just for kids' birthday parties? (Not us!)
In celebration of our brand new supplier at The Kent Wedding Centre, Bibbidi Bobbidi Balloons we thought we would share our favourite wedding ideas for using balloons on your big day! You can find out all about our new wedding balloons in Kent supplier right here and see just how they can give your reception that fun finishing touch!
When we were kids, balloons were a sign of a party—birthday bash, carnival, school dance, you name it. So why, now that we're adults, aren't they a thing for weddings, the single greatest party of our life! Well, it seems a lot of people are asking that same question, because balloons have been popping up everywhere at weddings: at the engagement shoot, the bridal shower, the wedding reception, and more. And they are, of course, blowing up (ha ha) in the art scene too. If you're curious as to what this trend is all about, check out Charles Pétillon's installation of 100,000 white balloons in London's Covent Garden (it's magical!)!
Basically, all the kids are embracing balloons, and it's time for modern brides to get on board. To help you out and translate this trend to your wedding decor, we thought we would share our favourite wedding balloon ideas! And we are not talking about a "balloons tied at the party entrance"-type deal. No, it turns out people are getting really creative; think covering a statement wall with mini pink balloons, tying foliage-wrapped ones to table centrepieces, and hanging them from the ceiling.
Make your portraits truly stand-out by carrying a train of peach-colored balloons. (A gorgeous desert setting helps too.)
Give your tables height by sprinkling oversize white balloons down the middle. If you want to hide the strings, use fishing line wrapped in foliage.
If you didn't know already, garlands are very trendy right now. Take yours to the next level by mixing mini balloons—feel free to combine muted and bright tones, as shown here—with eucalyptus, flowers, or foliage.
Add balloons to the getaway car. Done and done.
This idea is simply perfection for a modern poolside party. Tip: Add lighting or floating candles to make sure the display shines after dark.
Go big or go home with a wall covered in balloons. To keep it from overwhelming guests (and taking away from your shining moment!), stick to a singular palette, like the pale-pink one here. But feel free to mix up the balloon sizes; it'll look like you blew up each yourself (even if you didn't).
If you and your groom are known as party animals, this is the look for you. This wedding looks like pure fun. (We're going to ahead and assume it was a ball!)
Pop 'em up over the dessert table for an extra sweet treat.
Now this is how you exit in style.
Let guests know they’ve come to the right place by decorating the entrance to the ceremony with a giant cascade of balloons (done in pretty millennial pink, of course!). Paired with a fun welcome sign, the combo will get guests excited and ready to party.
Instead of carrying a basket of petals, send your flower girls down the aisle holding a couple of big, tasseled balloons in your wedding colour palette.
Now you are suitably inspired and bursting with ideas for how to incorporate wedding ballons into your reception get in touch with the highly skilled Bibbidi bobbidi balloons and let them create something memorable for your big day!
