13 Wedding Balloon Décor Ideas to Inspire Your Unique Nuptials

When you think of wedding décor, balloons may not immediately come to mind. Flickering candles and rustic lanterns, cascading florals, and lush greenery are stunning design and décor options for any wedding. But we do love an unexpected element — and leave it to a wedding balloon installation to wow guests with creativity and whimsy. 

Each of these 13 wedding balloon décor ideas offers a unique take on the already-eclectic element. From full balloon-covered ceilings to vibrant balloon bunches used as pre-wedding photo props, we love each of these wedding balloon décor ideas, arches, and installations.
