Good morning!

Yesterday, I started a list of my top five favorite wedding details. Today, I would like to continue that list with something that has been mentioned a time or two on this blog already. It is the most fun decoration I can think of and it makes for the best pictures!

Favorite wedding detail #2: Balloons!

{You may recognize this bride as Alix from The Cherry Blossom Girl! Her wedding, featured on Green Wedding Shoes, is the epitome of sweet French style (no surprise there!), accented by these adorable pastel balloons}

{Rhiannon from Hey Gorgeous used these balloons in a special tribute to her grandmother. So beautiful and touching. You can read about the special moment here}

{A short sassy dress+bright red shoes+a handful of colorful balloons… Gotta love this Style Me Pretty bride’s style!}

{A yellow balloon adding the finishing touch to an adorable photo booth, on Ruffled}

{Balloons make for fun props in engagement sessions too, like in this Christmas tree farm scene on Style Me Pretty. Cute!}

{I couldn’t possibly blog about balloons in wedding/engagement pictures without including one of my favorite engagement shoots! This couple designed their engagement pictures around the movie UP and the results were amazing!}

I would love to know, what are some of your favorite wedding details?
