(With statement balloons doing the decor heavy work, you can scale back on pricey florals without sacrificing wow factor.) Below, a genius sampling of ideas.

Instead of traditional centerpieces...

Opt for slim, simple greens and float a processional of oversized white balloons on festive garland.

Deck out doorways in greenery and balloons in your color scheme.

Fashion a huge balloon chandelier with a wire grid and sprigs of fern.

Instead of a grand floral entryway...

Float double stacks of enormous, low-hanging white balloons on ivy ropes.

Instead of bridesmaid bouquets...

Give your gals mini bud arrangements (and huge pink balloons to match their gowns.)

Instead of buffet decor...

Add grand white tasseled balloons and wildflowers from the garden.

Instead of aisle pedestals...

Tie long, thick ribbons to aisle seats and suspend huge pastel balloons.

Instead of a floral altar...

Float greenery bedecked balloons at varying heights.

Instead of an escort card table...

Tack simple white, cream and gold balloons to a wall as directives.
