@ChocolateLime:   It doesn’t matter that they biodegrade if animals choke to death on them 20 minutes after they land.   My brother is a ranger at park in Florida and has literally pulled balloon pieces out of animals throats.  Your post doesn’t address the issue in the slightest – we all know they biodegrade eventually – thats not the problem.  Hawks see them in the sky and swoop in to grab them while they’re still floating and choke to death on them.  Romantic, right?

3 balloons very well could mean 3 dead animals.  I just don’t understand – with the gazillions of eco friendly options out there – why it would possibly be worth hurting a living thing for a wedding prop.

@Stina11287:   Sorry you feel piled up on – but just one reply wouldn’t be very convincing would it?  Other bees chime in not to gang up on you, but to make sure you see that this is a widespread, majority opinion (backed up with facts and evidence of the harm that can result), not just one or two treehuggers ready to pounce on you for using anything other than leaves, sticks, and organic cotton in your wedding 😉
