Balloons are usually reserved for birthday parties, retirement parties and baby reveals… but lately we've seen balloons popping up at weddings! From geronimo ballons, to balloon walls, to balloon installations, we're seeing brides get creative with this new trend. However, this new trend can be polarizing… is it tacky or tactful? I guess it depends on perspective and how you go about adding balloons to your decor. So let's take a look at some dreamy examples!

Balloons can be used as aisle markers in order to create an etherial feel to your ceremony. Think white balloons with fun fringy tassles! Just make sure they float high enough so your ceremony guests won't have an obstructed view!
