Lights, lights, and more lights!! Wedding décor is all about glitz and glamour, so what better way to make your special day sparkle than with lights? There are so many different things you can do with lights to add ambiance to your perfect day. We will cover just a few, only because we are writing a blog, not a book! We will start with the simplest of projects; but remember, simple does NOT equal styleless. A common theme in weddings is to line the aisle with flowers or tulle. Kick this idea up a notch by adding rope light to the tulle or flowers. You can use white or one of your accent colors. This will give you a spectacular glow for that once-in-a-life time walk down the aisle. String lights and tulle would also make for stunning pew décor by simply wrapping tulle around the lights then drape on the backs or ends of the pews. For outdoor weddings, you can wrap tree branches in lights or wrap our HoliSpheres in lights and tulle (or silk). The HoliSpheres can be hung from trees or placed on top of large urns outlining the perimeter of the venue or ends of seating rows. Battery operated lights can be added to floral arrangements or placed in glass vases as centerpieces on each table. Give new meaning to the term ‘glowing bride’ by having battery operated lights sewn into the train of your gown or your veil. This would be especially stunning with a lace or tulle train or veil. Make sure the reception ‘shines’ in your memories for a lifetime. One way to illuminate the reception is to back drop the wall behind the bridal table with curtain lights. For a slightly subtle ambiance, cover the lights with a curtain of tulle. You could ‘light up’ the entire bridal table by safety pinning string lights underneath the table covering. Did you know that our lights (NOT the plugs) are waterproof? You could add them to your cold food buffet! Place them in the cold containers under the ice, making sure the plugs are left out (hide the plugs in tulle or fabric), then serve the cold foods in see-through containers such as glass bowls or trays. This would be especially elegant for a night wedding. These are just a few of the many, many ideas our decorators came up with for making your special day one you will never forget. Need more ideas?
