Ten Things Tuesday - Wedding Lighting Ideas

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

1. Lanterns

These are by far one of my favorite lights for wedding receptions.  The vibrant colors and all the fun shapes and sizes to work with are such fun.  Patio lights or large white Christmas lights make the best filler for hanging them over large areas.

2. Patio Lights

 One of the most common and versatile lights to use for a wedding reception. Add tulle or lanterns to enhance the touch.  Let the light create a golden glow to the under branches of a tree. A true fairy tale light.

3. White fabric and back light

 For an indoor evening reception with a windowless venue, white draped fabric and colorful light to shine from behind make a glamorous and elegant ambiance.

4. Small Table Lamps

If you are going for a serene and relaxing low light setting for your wedding reception, small lamps on each table that will add a glow to the site.

5. Candles

If your venue or location allows it, the use of many candles can't be beat! The gentle flicker create its own sense of romance.

If you are in a outdoor setting where wind might be expected, candle lit paths are a romantic and elegant entrance and exit for your guests to enjoy, however, be sure to either assign an individual to be the candle lighter/ re-lighter or consider battery operated candles to sit in the glasses...

Have a water area to work with, such as a pool or pond?  Consider adding some elegant floating lights to add that perfect mystic element.

6. Spotlights

While the rest of your venue may have a dimmer and more relaxing eye light for your guests, consider a spot light effect on your table/ dance floor/ or line to put the focus on you and your wedding party for the event and pictures.

7. Dance lights

Most DJ's will supply lighting with their services.  Definitely something to ask about.  Even fog might be a fun addition, but be sure to look into what fire regulations there might be as fog can set off an alarm and disrupt your event.

The variation of unique colors will offer a fun vibrancy to your event that the average indoor lighting, such as florescent light of a venue could ruin.

8. Chandeliers

Such a  classy choice! Chandeliers handing in the trees for an outdoor event will glisten with sparkle and glamor.

9. Firelight


Holding an outdoor rustic event? Warm your guests with fire pits, lanterns etc.

10. Glowing Centerpieces

These little beads absorb water and a waterproof battery operated light shine from the bottom to make them glow.  They are a unique and colorful touch for a contemporary event.

If you have a low lit setting for your indoor wedding reception, make your decor stick out with light!
