Having smart lighting on your wedding day can work wonders to create an enchanting and magical effect. It is a lot more than just functional, it helps to create a gentle, romantic ambiance and provide a beautiful element of style that helps to elevate the grand evening from ordinary to extraordinary. These days, the role of event planners goes far beyond just paying attention to colors. Being in this industry means one must also pay attention to other elements like lighting too.
From rustic candelabras to spectacular chandeliers, vintage lanterns to modern-age geometric designs, the world of lighting is full of endless possibilities with something to suit every taste and theme.
Whether you choose to go for a DIY project or prefer to work with an experienced event planner, consider ditching some floral and balloon arrangements for the unforgettable glow of proper lighting on your wedding. Here are some of our favorite ideas.
With so many other fancy details on your wedding, why not choose a décor that is something out of the ordinary. Especially if you are the sort who would love to add a fairytale touch to your event, fairy lights in wine bottles get the job done within seconds. You can arrange for some of these as centerpieces to add some sparkle for dining guests. You can extend some of these lights to the altar too!
If your wedding is set to take place in an outdoor place like a garden, this option is perfect for you! Create a stylish outdoor look with many paper lanterns placed along the aisle, or close to the center stage and ask your event planners to light up each dining table with the soft tones of more than two tropical style lanterns. To take your event a notch higher, you can have string lanterns overhead to tie it all together. For a more personalized touch, you can also add your name initials (you and your spouse-to-be) on the lanterns for a tropical statement.
Do you want things to look up bright on your wedding? Cascading string lights hung from the ceiling keep eyes up and the event looking spectacular. A great thing about this choice is that you do not have to worry about their height touching the centerpieces, or blocking conversations between your guests because they float overhead.
Would you love to see your name highlighted in big and bright marquee lights? Definitely, who does not love to see their names glowing brightly! These days, many couples opt for their lighted up names. These lighted monograms also create photo-op while stamping your name on the entire reception. It is easy to rent or purchase most monograms, or if you have some creative talent in you, a DIY can also work best.
Sure, nothing spells romance like a candlelit wedding dinner. Scratch off flowers as centerpiece completely by using different sized candles as your wedding lighting. Who knows, this idea could spark some romance between guests attending your wedding, sitting across the table!
Sit in sheer radiance in the front of the room. Any reception with a backdrop of tulle lights set behind the head table unfailingly creates a stunning ambiance that does not obstruct the views of couples. This is a great lighting idea for those who love to give their event a modern, but simple touch!
