2009 Wedding Trend :: Balloons at Weddings

The words Balloon and Wedding in the same sentence probably scare you and send flashbacks of the 80's running through your head, but they shouldn't anymore! Balloons are back and they are bigger than ever this season! As seen above, the cover of the Summer 2009 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings is of a bride holding balloons in her wedding gown. Balloons can be used as part of your reception decor, released at the end of your ceremony, or just used as 'props' in your wedding day photos. They are an inexpensive, easy DIY project and can really add a pop of color to any venue.

What do you think?! Would you incorporate balloons into your wedding decor?

I love the look of the big round balloons! I'd like to incorporate them into our wedding, but I'm not quite sure how!:)

Makes me think of the movie "UP" Great Disney love story!

Saw a poster on ETSY that has Bride and Groom holding balloons that the guests sign rather than a guest book!
