I thought too late to do a balloon wedding. If we’d gone through with it, our centerpieces would have been baskets with planted flowers, then the baskets would have nets with helium balloons hovering in them, like hot air balloons.My now-husband also thought it would be fun to have favors that are little chocolates tied with a string and a tiny floating balloon in wedding colors on each one. The guest book would have been like Mrs. Fox’s, with thumbprint balloons (in your case, you could have a hot air balloon graphic instead of the UP house).

ETA: Here’s a balloon centerpiece on Etsy

And here’s a photo of the flower version of the centerpiece :

Table top baskets could be a neat option, like the basket under the balloon, only it’s on the table…and I’m not sure how much your venue will let you get away with, but handmade lanterns and floaters that look like balloons would be an increadible accent…..also, your color palette can be anything because of how vibrant the balloons are…I would also want to see a lot of hanging features, things suspended that people could interact with.  Hanging photos of you two maybe?

I’ve seen the most amazing hot air balloons made out of lightbulbs.  Just google lightbulb hot air balloons. They’re awesome!

Oo I’m so jealous!!  I love hot air balloons.  We just took our first trip on one for our one year anniversary.

I don’t have any ideas – but I can’t wait to see how this turns out!

@saraisgettingmarried:  I agree! It could be just cute decor with some flowers or something in it

@saraisgettingmarried:  I bought it and I LOVE it but yes, the basket is pretty small. It wouldn’t hold a 5×7 card flat. We’re having a small wedding so it’s good enough for us plus it’s SO CUTE!
