3. Wedding Reception

Dining and Dancing becomes so much more fun when the right lighting sets the tone!  If you can get your overhead lighting on a dimmer, that’s ideal so it can be a little brighter for dining and a little darker for dancing!

4. Wedding Invitations with String Lights

An invitation that features lighting will set the mood weeks before your guests show up. Just looking at it gives you those “warm fuzzies” that string lighting should do, so if a mood is what you are trying to set, mail these out and plant the seed of what is to come!

6. Giant Letter Lights

Light up letters let your guests know they’ve come to the right place AND they are here to celebrate the two of you!  The other bonus is that you can keep these for your home after the wedding so you have some décor that holds a lot of memories even after the lights have turned off.

7. Lighted Tree and Branches

Not only is adding lighting in the trees gorgeous, it can also serve some function.  If your entire wedding is outside, this will help light the way for your guests to maneuver as the party goes into the darkness of night.  If you can, make sure to have the lighting installed several days before the wedding so you can check that it works and serves its purpose.
