Advantages and disadvantages of latex helium balloons

Whether we need latex balloons in Singapore to help celebrate the birth of a baby, our child’s graduation, or a wedding, we may want to be sure we first know the difference between latex and Mylar balloons and the advantages and disadvantages of each before we make a final decision.


Latex balloons are actually made using a type of liquid rubber while Mylar or foil balloons are made using a nylon sheet that is covered with metallic materials and plastics.

Advantages and disadvantages of latex helium balloons

The biggest advantage or benefit to using latex balloons is the fact that they are much less expensive than foil balloons. If we are thinking about using a lot of balloons, it would be more cost-effective if we used latex, because we will get a lot more balloons for the money. Latex balloons are available in all different colors and they can be filled with water, air or helium, making them very versatile.

The major drawback to using latex is that they pose a major choking risk for children. They are also slightly porous, making it easier for the helium or air to seep out fairly quickly. If we will be celebrating in cool temperatures, this will also cause helium-filled latex balloons to deflate faster.

Advantages and disadvantages of Mylar or foil balloons

The biggest benefit to using Mylar balloons is that the material is non-porous, so they stay filled with helium much longer than latex. They are also easier to print on and they are available in all kinds of different themes, shapes, and sizes.

The only potential drawback to foil balloons is that they are much more expensive than latex. We will want to consider how many balloons we need before we decide whether to purchase latex, Mylar or a combination of both.

How long will helium balloons last?

The amount of time a balloon will hold helium depends on whether it is latex or Mylar, and the air temperature. Latex balloons will only hold helium for 12 to 24 hours which is perfect if we do not need much setup time for the event. The Mylar or foil type may hold helium for up to 1 to 2 weeks because they do not allow nearly as much seepage as the latex type does. If the event we are planning requires a bit of setup time, we may want to consider getting a few Mylar balloons.

What size balloons should we use?

This will all come down to personal preference, our budget and the amount of space we have to work with. If we do not have a very large area, we are not going to want a bunch of huge balloons taking up unnecessary space, but if we do have a large area, then we may consider purchasing a large amount of latex helium balloons.

If we need our balloons to last up to 24 hours and we want to keep our costs as low as possible, it would be best to go with the latex type. We could always mix in a few of the Mylar balloons to make things more interesting. To find out more about our wedding package in Singapore click here.

Ideas for venue decor:

Rustic wrapping

The combination of green and light pink is always a favourite at Wedding Ideas, and this real wedding topped it off with the natural decor of greenery wrapped around the beams. The fairy lights added beautifully to the whole woodland look and must have looked beautiful when the sun went in.

High elegance:

This traditional looking reception venue and decoration is massively impressive. The couple played on the colors, space, and atmosphere of the room to make a truly fantastic and jaw dropping place to serve the wedding breakfast

Fun bunting:

Bunting is always a great option to add a bit of something to the world above your heads.  This marquee wedding had the bright colors of its bunting cleverly coordinating with the dark shades of the table decor. So that they both stand out next to the white tent which makes for fabulous photos.


The couple from this wedding made the most of their extraordinary venue. Sometimes a building is beautiful enough all by itself and all it needs to bring the life is a little bunting. Spending big on a venue to let the building it does the talking, especially if it fits perfectly with the theme.

Country style:

This couple got it just right with their hanging, heart-shaped wooden wreaths along green leaves – they make the most of the high ceiling and the detail with beams.



Church Wedding Flower:

The Ceremony follows tradition or a unique with personal script, deciding where to exchange vows is often related to the bride’s upbringing and home location. The marriage in church, the architectural elements and the kind of function held will impact on the choice of floral decorations. Notwithstanding the bridal bouquet, flowers at a ceremony convey a mood of freshness, abundance, and although the wedding might be quite short – usually less than an hour.

Each decorative element must contribute to the moment. Garnishing should focus on the places where the eye is drawn, the entrance, the aisle, and the altar. Before begin to plan the ceremony, check with the venue if there are any restrictions. These may include using candles, attaching flowers to pews, or indeed time restrictions if it is a particularly sought-after location.

A church wedding Flower in Singapore design can take on a lot more exciting looks now that just the old fashioned “fan spray”. Tall vases filled with overflowing blooms, painted birch branches, and incorporating wreaths are all acceptable decor for wedding ceremonies. Look for arrangements that will make the most impact among flowers and color combinations, rather than trying to fill large areas with a lot of small jar.
