Balloons aren't just for kids' birthday parties anymore—they can be tastefully incorporated into your wedding décor. I've seen a lot of amazing balloon ideas floating around the wedding blogosphere—everything from heart-shaped mylar ones to jumbo-size balloons by Geronimo. My favorites, though, are giant 40" alphabet balloons, available in metallic colors from online stores like For Sarah and Patrick's wedding (above), which was held at a planetarium in Tulsa, OK, the couple DIY-ed their ceremony backdrop using silver balloons spelling out "LOVE." It's such a cute and affordable décor idea—the balloons cost about $7.25 per letter. (See more pics of Sarah and Patrick's ceremony backdrop below and their entire wedding on Josh Neil's photography blog.) You can even incorporate the balloons into your engagement shoot, like Ashley and Chad did during their adorable New York City session with photographer Trent Bailey (below). —Heather Lee
