Thats pretty cool but omg so much work. My mom use to have a helium tank and they are fun. You would need a few tanks to keep up with making all those baloons.

I think its beautiful and def a way to decorate! You can achieve a similar look with lanterns (only con to those is you have hang each of them where as the balloons you can just fill and let go!). Also seems that it could make the room very dark if there isn’t a whole lot of sunlight that can get in and the lights are on the ceiling. Or the heat from the lights could pop them.

Honestly, it reminds me a bit of Prom or Homecoming. I think the lanterns that PP mentioned above may be a more wedding-like feel.

I love the ceiling balloon look — we are doing it over our dance floor — only we are going to have the strings hanging down. Most strings will hang down to about 6.5 ft. to 7 ft. over the floor. I don’t want them to be a huge distraction to the dancers, but I do want to have that affect…here’s the inspiration picture we’re working with:

It looks like a bit much for my taste. We are even doing a balloon drop since its new years eve and we aren’t using nearly this many balloons. Have you seen the parachute ceiling on pinterest, that is a dramatic look I loved. I can’t post pics on my iPad but it is pretty easy to find….

I thought about doing this because our ceilings are too high to do drapes so we’d have to pay more to rent a lift. Our idea was to let them go but how would we ever be able to get them down!? I love the idea of leaving the long strings hang down but since were eating dinner in the same room I think it would be distracting to have balloons in the one corner of the room. I love this idea though and I’m still tossing it around. =) Heres the photos that sold me!

@kimberlyr22:  LOVE!!!!! I am thinking about doing this now! Our theme is forest so maybe white and green ones with green ribbon? I don’t know but it seems like a great solution to our tall ceiling issues.

I know this is an old thread but I’d love to revive it and see if there are any more examples.  I get that people say its sort of prom like but I never went to prom so I don’t associate it with that.

I’m think of doing this too because it is cheap and the room where the reception is going to be is so super dark.  At the moment I don’t like the parachute idea.  I’m trying to convert my space into something that says come here party and dance its a church reception hall and its not viewed as a fun place at the moment.  

On a super limited budget I think this is going to be as good as it gets.

I kinda like it but I’m not sure if it’s right for a wedding

Well after much debate its going to cost way too much so another idea has taken over.

That would be awesome! But would be VERY expensive.

Although I read something one time that said you can do it without helium, you put a marble in the balloon, blow it up and then hang it from the ceiling. The weight keems them hanging down and straight.

The ceiling in our tent will only be 10 feet so i don’t think I’ll have enough room.
