I think it sounds very cute and I like the way the balloons look.

I think it’d be really cute!!  Awesome colors, too!  (ours are gray and yellow as well! ha!)

My first thought was it reminded me of the It’s a Small World ride at Disney. It does seem more childish than wedding but I think you could make it work, especially if your other decor tones it down a bit. It could be really cute.

hummmm I think they could work, but there will be a fine line between childish and more adult.

For example in this pic, I think this looks a little childish:

But these look more wedding appropriate:

I think that looks fun and awesome!  Definitely not childish to me.

Done right I think it could be very sophisticated and wedding appropriate, but I think it comes down to proper execution to make it work.

I think done correctly it will be beautiful and not childish. You will just have to play with the look of them 🙂 I love that. Love really is a journey.

I love those pics of the “adult” hot-air balloons! I definitely agree that the way you do them is key to whether they look right for your wedding.

My suggestions:

1. Stick to muted colors. Bright primary colors tend to remind us more of being young (like Legos), so if you’re worried about it looking childish, that could help a lot.

2. DO A MOCK-UP. I love making mock-ups. I’ve learned so much about how to make what I’m trying to do happen, and also about what it actually looks like as opposed to how it looks in my head. It could cost more than just getting all the supplies at once, but since I’ve changed my mind a couple of times, it definitely costs less than trying to buy ALL the supplies for two or more sets of centerpieces…

3. Make sure it’s really clear what they’re supposed to be. I think the proportions in the second two pictures look better–the basket is closer to the balloon and it’s more like the proportions in a real hot air balloon.

Also, just a side note… if you do gorgeous, classy balloons, you’ll probably still get a couple of haters. Haters gonna hate. Just ignore them.

I don’t think they are childish at all. If I were a guest I would be pretty amazed. Those Martha Stewart ones you posted look really cute. I’ve seen weddings where they used the movie UP as their theme and they looked beautiful. It’s all about the presentation.

With the right coloring and execution, these balloons will be adorable! And don’t worry about it being childish – it just shows your fun and outgoing personality. I personally love the ideas of the balloons. Do keep us posted about the results.
