    I didn’t know poka-dotted ballons existed!

    I like the look of simple white oversized balloons.

    You could do square or cylinder vases and do dry fillers in it or something! =) I love the balloon look, but to me its just not “wedding” enough! =)

    im in touch with a fellow bee who is doing this!

    I know it’s a bit trendy but what about pinwheels?  Some other fun ideas are below.

    I keep thinking about buttons when i think of your theme…i dont know why..maybe the polka dots?

    I voted for balloons though..i think it will look classy and great if done right.

    What about something like this?

    @GREGORR2: I love the way the balloons were used in the photos @amyisnice posted. (Also noticed some cool ceremony balloons in bee blogger’s Ms. Cardigan’s post this morning). I think as long as they aren’t bunched together the way you’d see at a children’s party, you use the right colors & space them out, they can look awesome! Plus they fit in your scheme so well.

    I love ostrich feathers and i’m using them for half of our centerpieces. The key to making them look lux and not dated is the vase.  Those really thin vases make them look dated.  You have to a go with a more voluminous vase or candlestick.  Take these for example:

    When I thought of your color scheme, black, white, and red, I thought of that joke, “What’s black and white, and READ all over?  A Newspaper!”  ha ha…BAAAAAD joke.  BUT!  That reminded me of a trend I’m seeing more and more: paper flowers!  And not just any paper, but pages from a newspaper or book.  But then, I thought, that sounds too serious, too literary…you mentioned wanting a touch of fun in there…so why not incorporate crossword puzzle pages into the paper flowers!!  Here are some examples of book-page flowers I found… (I couldn’t find any crossword examples, but you get the idea):

    Then I started to brainstorm more in the route of the Polka Dot theme, and suddenly it came to me: pomanders!!  These would perfectly work in your polka dot theme and still be “wedding” enough, but still have a really fun feel!  Also, what a fun project for you, your BM’s, your family, etc.  You could use tissue paper or silk flowers.  Most of the pictures below are utilizing real flowers, but with silk flowers or tissue paper, you can make these MONTHS before your wedding.  I like the idea of placing three different-sized pomanders on each table, a large, a medium and a small.  You could have one of each: one red, black and white on each table, or you could make red pomanders on top of black linens, using the white china as your white “polka dot”! 🙂  Some tables could even have pomanders displayed on candle pillars at different heights, which could have that balloom feel without seeming too “birthday party”, as you had mentioned earlier.  Here is a little inspiration board I put together.  Don’t mind the colors, but just check out the style and shape of each arrangement. 

    And my THIRD idea is this link I stumbled upon.  A fellow Bee made these awesome, fun pomanders out of ribbons, so check out the pics of the polka dot pomanders at the link below!

    Best of luck planning, Bee! 🙂

    @GREGORR2: I LOVE the ostrich feathers! I’ve seen it on the show “Whose wedding is it anyway” and think the white ones are gorgeous! I’m definitely going for it and thinking of putting red roses in the vase somehow… Still have to do mock-ups. In my personal opinion, I also think it is more suitable for a wedding whilst balloons are more for birthdays and other types of celebrations. But it also depends on your theme.

     

    BEst of luck!
