@LaWife:  $500 is a lot of money! If she really likes it then maybe go for it but I would never pay for that.

I think that would be really cool and I would love to see that IRL, but I don’t think I could ever justify spending $500 on it.

@Jacqui90:  But then there would be confetti on the floor when everyone’s trying to dance.

I wouldn’t pay $500 for it.

if your friend loves the idea, and can afford it, then I say go for it. It’s not something I would want, but I could see how someone else might. 

Just as a thought: my Fiance really wanted to rent a Rolls Royce get away car. I thought the price was a bit much, but because it was something he really wanted, we found a way to shuffle the budget and make it happen. Was it more than I ever thought I’d spend on a get away car? Yes. (to be fair, I would have been fine riding in the backseat of my MOH’s car, with her as our driver, for free) but it makes my Fiance happy, so I’m ok with that. Maybe, if this is something your friend wants enough, there is room in her budget to make it happen.  In that case, I saw its definitely worth the money.

Definitely not worth it, in my opinion. It is definitely a cool idea, but I would not pay that much. Unless I were very rich… 🙂

If she can spare the money, it could be pretty and memorable.  On the other hand, if she’s on a tight budget, she might get more bang for her buck by putting the money towards something else like her centerpieces, food, music or linens – it’s not like it’s something people would miss if she didn’t go it.

Looks very pretty but i wouldn’t pay that much for it. Unless i could spare the money. And i would probably do it at the end so that the mess wouldn’t be that big of an issue 🙂

Personally, I would never pay $500 for balloons and confetti. Cool idea, but absolutely not worth $500.

I would be worried about slipping on the dance floor!

@LaWife:  It’s worth it if that’s what someone really wants. It’s not my style whatsoever and no way I’d want to be picking confetti out of my hair all night, but to each their own.

that’s not worth $500… However, if she has $500 to blow and she wants it then i suppose that’s a different story

If I had extra room in the budget, I would definitely splurge on it.  The pictures would be amazing.

@LaWife:  Agreed with pp- reminds me of New Year’s Eve! It’s worth it if she loves the idea, but I wouldn’t pay that much for it. The supplies probably only cost $10.
