4- Balloon decoration ideas for weddings
An intimate and festive aesthetic with matching fringes hanging from the balloons and the back of the chairs. All you need to do is tie colorful ribbon or paper fringes to the giant ballon tails.
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.
- Blow up the balloon and cover it with the tulle so the four tips line up at the bottom.
- Tie it with an elastic band and cover it with a nice ribbon.
- Now, trim tulle tail.
- 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!
6- Lit wedding aisle decor with balloons and tassel tails
Create the tassels of your liking with party fringe garlands, the lighter, the better and tie them to the neck of the balloon. For a more classic look, go with all white tassels.
7- Stunning table balloon decoration ideas
Connect the balloons with decorative tails and wow your guests.
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.
9- Send off the couple in style
Finally, never, ever forget to add a few balloons to the send off car!
Remember to have some extra balloons handy, just in case. These balloons decoration ideas can have lots of them or just a few for an original touch. They can be giant or small, all in the same color or multicolored, but always magnificent!
