12 of the Best Ways to Use Balloons in Your Wedding

Nothing says party quite like a bunch of balloons and as your wedding is provably the biggest party you’ll ever throw, why not get the celebrations going with some cheery balloons?! Like mason jars, balloons have endless uses – tie them to signs to make them stand out, use them as table numbers, have your flower girl or page boy make an adorable entrance with one in hand, add a touch of whimsy to your wedding photos with some awesome oversized balloons as props for the bridal party or just have a couple of pretty bunches dotted around the venue (filled with confetti perhaps or opt for cute Mr & Mrs or Just Married versions) to have some serious fun on the decor front. Check out more gorgeous ways you can include balloons in your Big Day below…

Where to Buy Balloons

You can pick up balloons everywhere from Sostrene Grene to Woodies. Or if you’re looking for some specialty wedding balloons, have some fun balloons perfect for the hen party and some cute balloons if you’re looking to surprise the bride on the wedding morning. They also stock cute heart shaped Mr & Mrs balloons! Pearls & Lace Bridal Boutique also have some great options for weddings, stocking fun confetti filled balloons and giant oversized versions, both round and hearts.
