Blowing Up: Balloon Wedding Decor
Posted by Rosie Purdy
If you think balloons are exclusively for kiddie parties, think again. Unexpected and reasonably-priced, balloons are cropping up at weddings in a wide variety of ways, from chic, lightweight centerpieces to whimsical altar adornments. Choose balloons in a soft, muted palette for a sophisticated style, or opt for more vibrant versions to add a bold punch of color.
Take a look at our favorite wedding balloon ideas below, and tell us: Would you have balloons at your wedding?
