5- DIY giant silver balloons with tulle and glitter

Word of warning, do not spend on expensive helium for tulle balloons as they become too heavy and do not float. They need to be suspended from the ceiling with clear plastic thread but don’t worry, it’s not that hard.

  1. Blow up the balloon and cover it with the tulle so the four tips line up at the bottom.
  2. Tie it with an elastic band and cover it with a nice ribbon.
  3. Now, trim tulle tail.
  4. Finally, use the clear plastic thread to hang the balloon but threading it trough the top of the balloon tulle – be careful not to pop the balloon!

8- Magical balloon releases for an emotional send-off

Balloon releases are incredibly beautiful but make sure you care about the environment with biodegradable materials and tails. Another great idea is to organize a ballon send off without the release, it will look just as lovely on the wedding photos.

Word of caution: Some states that have laws that prohibit balloon releases. So far, these are California, Connecticut, Florida, Tennessee and Virginia.
