"Wut?" was his only response.
I laughed, and then sent him genuine inspiration photos. No offense, Two Ladies and a Helium Tank, but the balloon arch and pillars aren't really our style. Those large, perfectly round balloons, however? I think they're incredibly modern and beautiful if done correctly. Do you remember this spread from MS Weddings a few months back?
I love them; they're like a fresh take on paper lanterns.
I've been fretting a bit over our ceremony decoration. Our ceremony is going to be outdoors, in a large, open grassy area. Our venue offers a traditional white metal archy thing, but I dunno. I didn't want an arch decorated with flowers. It was a little dated to me, and I wasn't sure it would feel cohesive with the rest of our details.
Then, I saw this wedding featured at Green Wedding Shoes. It pretty much solidified my desire for balloons-as-ceremony-decor.
And think of the pictures we'll be able to take after the ceremony!
I found these pictures late one afternoon while I was still at work, and I sketched out how I think I'd like the balloons set up.
I thought the balloons would make a pretty backdrop for the wedding party. In my head, I imagined them to be red and a pretty, pale aqua.
I found these, and quickly ordered them to see if I liked the colors in person.
Weellll, I liked the red. The blue wasn't aqua, but teal. Like Cupcake's teal. Sooo, I didn't know what to do. Should I go with red and white?
I drew up a few "mock-ups."
I'm not sure what we're going to do. The balloons are affordable at ~$2.75 a piece, and the shipping was very fast.
Which do you think would look better? Would you ever use balloons as part of your wedding decor?
