Top 10 Wedding Decor with Balloons Ideas
Balloons aren’t just for kid parties anymore! With so many shapes, sizes, and colors, they can be arranged for formal events.
They aren’t just for arches either! Here are our favorite tips for wedding décor with balloons so you can get a fun, playful, upscale look at your wedding.

Balloon Arches as a Backdrop for the Ceremony or Reception
When you think of a balloon arch, standard 11-inch balloons come to mind. Those are great for kid parties, but they don’t really provide a classy wedding-day look.
Instead, mix up the size of your balloons to add interest. Integrate other items, like flowers and fabric, and create interesting arch shapes, like an oversized circle or a half arch. Not sure how to create a custom balloon arch? Make it easier with a modern wedding balloon arch kit!

Balloon Bouquets for Bridesmaids
If you’re looking for wedding balloon ideas that are unexpected, consider wedding balloon bouquets for your bridesmaids!
That might mean incorporating small balloons into flower arrangements, but you don’t have to think about a balloon bouquet so literally. Bridesmaids can carry a bunch of helium balloons, or a single balloon can be tied to traditional floral bouquets for a festive look at your wedding.

Balloon Arrangements as Centerpieces for Tables

Balloon Décor Hanging From the Ceiling or Suspended in the Air
There’s something magical about balloons, which makes them great for weddings. Especially if you hang them from the ceiling.
Create a stunning display that floats over reception tables. Balloons can be hung from trees at an outdoor wedding, and helium balloons can be tied to long strings and floated near the ceiling in a grand space, like a cathedral. Use balloons in shades that match your wedding colors, or use clear balloons filled with tissue paper confetti.

Columns Wrapped With Teal, Gold, and Ivory Balloons: Rock My Wedding
Balloon-Covered Columns or Poles
Columns and poles are blank canvases that are just asking to be decorated at a wedding. Skip the streamers and decorate them with balloons instead!
Displays can be as grand or as understated as you want. Create magical entrances out of balloons and decorate columns in a ceremony space. Balloons can even be wound around the trunks of trees at an outdoor wedding.

Balloon Garlands or Chains
Wedding balloon garland can be used to decorate poles and columns, but it can also be used down the center of tables, hung from banisters, and used to create a makeshift wedding arch.
If you’re looking for a simpler idea that you can DIY yourself, chains constructed out of balloons can be lovely too. Especially if you incorporate multiple chains with balloons in different shapes, sizes, and colors. Wrap balloons in fabric for an upscale, one-of-a-kind look.

Balloon Photo Booth or Selfie Station
Wedding balloon backdrop ideas can be used at the altar and behind the head table, but your guests want to interact with the balloons at your wedding too! Create a balloon photo booth or a selfie station so everyone can get in on the action.
You can create a fancy balloon wall, but it can also be fun for your guests if there are helium balloons on strings for them to hold, or loose latex balloons on the floor that they can kick or throw in the air as they take a picture.

LED Balloon Wedding Send-Off

Hand out clear LED balloons to your guests. Have them hold up the balloons as you and your partner exit the reception. It’s a magical moment you will always remember, and it creates a stunning photo opportunity!
