Work Out How Many Balloons You Need For Your Wedding Venue Ceiling
Before you order your balloons, find out the dimensions of your venue. There is nothing sadder looking than a huge room with a few lonely balloons bobbing about!
The average balloon is about 30cm in diameter but you will obviously need less if you order giant-size balloons.
There is an easy formula to calculate how many balloons you should order (and don't forget, if the odd one bursts, you need a few spare ones, anyway): simply multiply the length of the room by the width of the room by 10, 7 or 5.
If you want to absolutely blanket the ceiling in balloons so you can't even see the ceiling anymore, multiply the length in metres x width in metres x 10.
Multiplying it by 7 will give you a good amount but be warned, it looks too scattered and sad if you multiply it by just 5.
Here's some examples:
Yarra Room, The Langham Hotel, Melbourne, VIC - approximately 16.1m x 9.7m - to completely cover the ceiling you need at least 1,500 balloons, to get a good coverage, 750 balloons.
Agincourt Room, Curzon Hall, Sydney, NSW - approximately 19m x 7.6m - to completely cover the ceiling you need at least 1,400 balloons, to get a good coverage, 700 balloons.
Hinterland Room 1, Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa, Surfers Paradise, QLD - approximately 8m x 10m - to completely cover the ceiling you need at least 800 balloons, to get a good coverage, 400 balloons.
