The outdoor wedding season is in full swing, and many of you are puzzling how to pull off wedding décor, lights, keep all the guests comfortable and so on. Today I’m going to help you with some ideas and inspire you with outdoor lighting ideas for your reception. Why lights? Because this is an indispensable part of wedding decor, which creates an ambience and makes every venue more inviting.
Industrial décor is great and edgy and can be used not only for industrial nuptials and receptions, you can mix it with boho, vintage and other wedding styles. Industrial bulbs are amazing for hanging them over your reception and they will light up the space intensively, which guarantees amazing pics taken! They can be with gopper or gold or just dark metal accents and you can hang them on some tubing for a cooler look.
String lights are the most popular option for lighting up any space, they are very comfy to use and can be attached over the whole reception in rows or even create a beautiful illuminating canopy. Wrap the tree trunks and branches with string lights to make them sparkle and enjoy the effect created! If your reception is covered with branches and bushes, you can wrap them with lights totally and the atmosphere will be magical. This is also a very budget-savvy idea, which won’t break the budget, so consider it for sure.
Lanterns may be candle or paper ones, the first type is to be used with string lights or glam chandeliers to make the reception more lit up but using only candle lanterns and candles on the tables is also ok, you will create a magic atmosphere, which is especially necessary for fairy tale, Halloween and secret garden weddings. Paper lanterns are a budget-savvy and cool solution, they can easily fit a lot of styles, so try them!
You can also go for cool glam chandeliers, they will add a romantic and chic touch to the space. Better use them together with candle lanterns or just string lights to illuminate the reception as chandeliers are mostly decorative ones, they won’t give much light. There’s one more creative idea: illuminate the tables from the inside and cover them with long tablecloths to hide the lights, looks super cool!
