Things I Heart: Balloons

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”

– Winnie the Pooh



Before venturing into the world of wedding planning, I always thought of balloons as decor items—not props. Mostly, I had flashbacks to the ’80s (balloon arches, anyone?). However, I’ve learned they’re a creative way of adding just the right touch of whimsy. Whether one or many—they’re so effin’ cute!







I love that each BM has a “bouquet” of balloons instead of flowers:







Don’t you think they add such an unexpected playfulness? I tried to track down a round balloon for our engagement photos, but alas came up empty handed. Is anyone else considering using balloons or some other prop for their engagement photos?
