Lights are an important part of wedding decor, they will highlight every moment, create an ambience, make the space more beautiful and adorable, so you should choose them carefully. As the indoor wedding season is in full swing, you may need some ideas how to light up your ceremony space and reception to create an atmosphere and make everyone feel cozy. I’ve prepared some fresh ideas to get you inspired, let’s have a look at them.
This is of course the most popular idea for lighting up any wedding venue and space, they are budget-friendly, you can get a lot and you can use them in different ways wrapping and hanging them everywhere. They fit any spaces, venues and wedding styles, and bring much light in, besides, string lights combine with candles, lanterns and chandeliers very well, so you can use different combos, too. Hang them in rows over the reception, hang them vertically to create a romantic wedding backdrop for the ceremony, hang them creating oversized canopies over the reception, wrap pillars and beams of the venue and create all kinds of shapes you like.
If you want to add a fairy-tale touch to your wedding, there’s a great idea: bring large branches or potted trees inside and cover them with lights, wrap them completely. Such magical lit up trees will make your reception amazing and your ceremony space breathtaking.
Candles are also extremely popular for wedding decor, they create a romantic ambience. candles are more often used for ceremony spaces, first of all, to line up the aisle. Place candle lanterns or candles in tall vases and petals or other stuff that fits your wedding style, and voila – your aisle is decorated! You can place some candles in the fireplace or mantel if there’s any, or just put many candles around your ceremony space. You may also add candles to the reception tables – hang them above in geometric candle lanterns, or put them in candle holders or candelabras on the table.
Glam chandeliers are a hot trend in decor, not only in home decor but also in event decor. Get some gorgeous crystal chandeliers, maybe oversized ones, for marking your reception, or the dance floor, or to make your ceremony space more glam. Get inspired!
