    There is a way to do it right and wrong in my opinion 🙂 I don’t like the prom look or clown birthday party but something where the ballons are covering the ceiling and the strings hang down, or a few CIRCLE balloons (not the typical shape ones) I think can look really modern.

    I’m with you guys. I won’t be doing it because it doesn’t fit our theme and feel, but they can look great sometimes. Plus, I’d hate to have to worry about blowing them all up :).

    It depends on how formal your wedding is.  I think in most cases they just look off next to all the pretty flowers and such, but if you’re having a really casual wedding they might work.

    I think when done properly, they look awesome. I saved a few inspiration photos of balloons during my planning process, and of course, I loved my nephews and stepson going down the aisle with their big round white balloons (because kids don’t understand the concept of a party without balloons). Other times, I think it can go horribly wrong. However, the spirit of it is what counts right?

    There was a hive member who had an awesome wedding where she used balloons for centrepieces and they were AMAZING! I wish I could remember who it was… I also had a photo saved of these huge balloons (like 6′ diametre) hanging down over a dance floor and it was awesome. I can’t find it though 🙁

    Agree – no balloons.  When I think about a lot of balloons I am picturing Prom or Birthday…..

    Oooh I found her. It was SweetAdelineXO, one of my favourite weddings ever I think. It was gorgeous.

    it’s a very fine line between nicely done and horribly wrong. i’ve seen some instances where a couple of ballons look great, but could they could quickly turn into a five year old’s birthday party.

    Not my thing, what if they pop at the reception? For some reason I REALLY hate the sound of balloons popping.

    Big, perfectly round balloons, yes. Very modern and can add an elegance to a wedding.

    Smaller balloons, and most “balloon arrangements” also remind me of prom. Personally, Not my taste for a wedding.

    I’m also of the opinion that depending on how they’re done they can be gorgeous.  I definitely don’t think your friend should be bothered because you don’t want them!

    I love the big perfectly round balloons on the ceiling for a tent wedding. Baloons are cheaper than draping, and if done correctly, can have the same affect.

    I think they’re fun.  I agree that you have to kind of design it, but I think it could be done.

    I voted Meh, but it’s really “Depends”.

    Those perfectly round ones can look awesome! A multicolored bunch of regular ones? Maybe not so much.

    I think they can be fun if they are done in the right way – like what bakerella posted with the large round balloons – but normal sized balloons – no, I dont thnik they look right at a wedding
