Balloons are the new bunting
One of our favourite marquee decoration ideas comes in the shape of a balloon. But not just any balloon. Forget the foil, garish things on weighted strings – leave those for the kids’ parties. The ‘in thing’ for wedding balloons right now are opaque, complete with tassels or pom poms. Choose yours in primary colours for the fun factor or chic whites and metallics.
Whether they will be used for ‘Mr and Mrs’ balloons – tied to bride and groom’s chairs or having an ombré of balloons in the wedding colours behind the top table. You can even have them strategically placed throughout your marquee. Balloon at a wedding are becoming less childish and more chic, you could say they are taking over flowers.
