Happy Friday Lovelies!

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend! It’s been a very busy week for us over here at Styled by Starlet HQ! But we wouldn’t have it any other way.

So on today’s blog post we are talking balloons!  Yep love them or hate them, balloons have made a HUGE comeback in terms of weddings and the new gorgeous, creative and downright wow factor balloons that are available now have turned even the most hardened balloon haters into fans!

Gone are the days of the 80’s balloon arch and the dull balloon table displays! Hello oversized balloons with gorgeous tassels, giant balloons filled with glitter or beautiful feathers.  There is literally so many amazing designs out there and with more and more companies offering these amazing services they really have gained mass popularity and set to continue to do so.

The giant balloons are amazing for those fun photo’s and add a sense of fun into the pictures.  Whether it’s a cute photo of the two of you or a fun photo with your bridesmaids, grab yourself one of these beauties and create some amazing photos!!!

Giant balloons can also prove a great idea for a cost effective way to fill large, empty spaces.  They provide a great talking point as well as a beautiful photographic opp for your guests!  Consider some amazing metallic styled balloons, or wonderful hanging tulle covered balloons.  There are some amazing balloon companies out there who really can create some wonderfully fabulous designs!

The leaders in the balloon game and literally my absolute favourite balloon company are the amazing Bubblegum Balloons, they really have put amazing balloon styles back on the map in the UK and i strongly suggest giving them a follow on social media to check out their fab designs!
