Re: Balloons

  • Balloon arches or balloons not done well make me think of a prom.  However, I have seen some wedding pictures on TK and other sites while looking at different ideas that do use balloons in a way that I like.  But, I think you have to be very careful.
  • I was torn between HATE them and depends.  They do remind me of a kid's birthday party, but our venue owner said she puts balloons out by the road in your wedding colors so guests know where to turn.  I'd be okay with that.  As far as balloon arches, center pieces or anything like that I'm gonna have to pass.

  • Balloons are super cheesy to me. 

    Sometimes used in like, e-pics or wedding pics they are cute if they are being held on to, but decorative wise, don't like em!

    Oh, and agree with Leah with using them on signs by the roads.  We'll need the that for direction out in the boonies :)

    We're using the round chinese lanterns hanging from the roof instead.

    They have to be done VERY well to be nice, in my opinion.

    Not a fan at all.  Even the first picture that Sunico PIPed just doesn't look nice enough for a wedding to me... it's nice looking, but more for a wedding shower, not the wedding itself (in my opinion).

    Balloons just scream "kids' party/birthday party"... and those big white ones scream "weather balloon" to me haha (see below for proof).

    Hate it!  I immediately thought of birthdays and scenes from the Wedding Singer.

  • omg this reminds me...
    On the Saskatoon Kijiji site, there's always a guy advertising his "balloon artistry" skills for weddings.

    For his own sake, I have covered up his phone number.  To me, his ad is creepy!! lol!!

  • Was just thinking - oooh, but maybe at the kids table...

    and then realized that I have nobody to go get helium balloons and set them up for me.  So no - too birthday.

    I said depends, but the first two things I think of are kids birthday and prom. And they can be really cheesy, so I would stay away from the personally just because I don't know that I could pull it off.

    I'm also not a big fan of the current trend for balloons in epix. I think they can be done really nicely, but by this point they're not all that original anymore and it's just not my style.
  • I don't hate them. But I've only seen a few instances where I've really liked them. I could also see them as acceptable in a very budgeted wedding.

  • I think it depends like the girls have said . . I've thought of attaching time to the parking sign for the church to help direct guest and I don't see anything wrong with that.

    Now a balloon release . . first off its terrible for the environment and second it reminds me of a funeral.
  • I wanted to use them somehow just because it's cheaper...and I wanted them to be gold and ivory. But I don't know how to do it in a tasteful way..I'm thinking now based on all the hates that I should stay away from balloons.

    Any other ways to add gold to my decor? I'm doing gold tablecloths but I need another touch in the actual reception room.

  • Gold ribbons around your vases or candle holders (whichever you're using for CPs), put your favors in gold packaging, gold on your cake...
