Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne) “Nobody can be uncheered by a balloon”

Balloons have become the whimsical must-have trend at weddings. Fun, shimmering, big or small, they can make gorgeous addition to your big day.

“Balloons are not what they used to be,” explains Sally Hodge from Bubblegum Balloons. “You can really get creative with your installation these days. Whether they are for tablecentres, lining an aisle, creating a grand entrance or simply adding some fun to the photo shoots, wedding balloons can really add a touch of personality and fun to your wedding”.

We’ve put together 10 easy wedding balloon ideas you can use effectively at your wedding.
