Step by Step Instructions:

    Inflate the 6" Black heart to about 5", using the Mini Cool Aire® Dual Pro™, and knot.
    Step 3
    Repeat steps 1 and 2 using a white 6" latex heart
    Step 4
    Take the corner of the White heart, without the raisin twist, and twist to form a small bubble, tuck the bubble under your little finger, so leaving your hands free.
    Step 5
    Repeat the twist with the Black heart.
    Step 6
    Then take the bubble of the Black heart and the bubble of the White heart and twist them around each other, a few times so they lock together.
    Step 7
    Now tie the two balloon necks together, as if to make a duplet, you should get a heart shape one side Black and one White.
    Step 8
    Take a 160 and slip it over the knot between the two balloons, fill your Bubblloon (with sweets, candies ) and then feed the 160 through the Bubblloon and through the base and secure in place as normal, cut of any excess 160 and tuck away
    Step 9
    Make a rasin twist in one of the 5" blush balloons

    Tie the neck of the balloon to the raisin twist on the Black heart.
    Step 12
    Repeat steps 10 to 11 with another 5" blush latex balloon and tie to the White heart, this makes the Bride's head.
    Step 13
    Make a 5 bubble 'string of pearls' using a white 160.
    Step 14
    Tie this around the knot between the blush and White heart balloons, making the Bride's neck
    Step 15
    Repeat steps 12 and 13 this time tying around the Groom's neck

    Tie to the top of the Groom's head, using the raisin twist
    Step 19
    Inflate a black 160, to about 8", and wrap around the bottom of the black apple twist, and tie of, so creating the brim of the Groom's hat.

    Puff a 6" white heart and knot
    Step 21
    Repeat step 20,and tie the two hearts together, so creating the Groom's bowtie
