I love balloons!! Here’s a pic from my e-shoot using balloons. For an arch I think many smaller ones work better as the colours have a chance to blend, though big ones for shoots would work well!

I love the big ones but mainly because of the streamers, theyre gorgeous!! I think the streamers would help frame where your standing rather than just looking like theres some balloons bobbing along beside you lol 🙂

I’m sorry but I can’t help but think of a pep rally when you say balloon arch. However, it sounds like you want to have sets of balloons on each side more than a structure of balloons over you. 

I think the large balloons with streamers looks really nice. I’ve seen them filled up with confetti inside in addition to the garland. I considered having my bridesmaids walk down the aisle with them instead of bouquets. 

I think this is also a nice idea as a balloon backdrop and you could repurpose it for a photobooth backdrop during the reception.

Mrs.DK:  I like the big ones, but are you getting married outside? If so, I might reconsider the balloons because it can get pretty windy on Maui! Or be sure to get heavy weights and make sure they’re far enough away so they don’t bop you on the head mid-ceremony!

Use the big ones. The small ones will just look like a kids birthday party.
