Planning a wedding means making some big decorating decisions. Using wedding lights will add ambiance, brilliance and romance to your wedding decor. Here are some of the choices available to make your special day shine.
Wedding Light Displays
Add a dramatic and elegant touch to your wedding decor using wedding light displays.
Wedding light displays come in a variety of styles and colors. Some favorites include bells, doves and hearts. There are also roses and even cupid styles. Just plug them in and you’ve got a spectacular lighted wedding decoration.
Most wedding light displays are for indoor or outdoor use making them an easy way to decorate. Place one above the wedding party’s table, over the entry way to the reception area or near the dance floor. Accent them with some string lights on white wire and you’ve got a truly beautiful wedding decoration.
As an added benefit, wedding light displays can also be used at Christmas or Valentine’s Day. Once you see how beautiful these displays are, they will be the first decoration up next holiday season!
Battery Operated Mini Wedding Lights
There are two varieties of these wedding lights; incandescent or LED.
If you are using floral table centerpieces, then battery operated mini lights make the perfect accent. Nest them in your floral arrangement and turn them on. They turn an ordinary bouquet into an exquisite centerpiece.
Battery operated mini wedding lights are a great accent anywhere you want to add sparkle. Intertwine them with some white garland around windows or table tops a shimmering effect. Here’s an easy wedding decoration idea. Buy an 18 inch grapevine wreath, some small dried flowers (like baby’s breath) and wide white ribbon. Secure the battery pack to the back and weave the lights around the wreath. Next attach bunches of the dried flowers over the lights and wreath. Wrap the ribbon around the top to hang and you have an elegant lighted wedding decoration.
One safety consideration using battery operated incandescent mini wedding lights; they run hot so use caution when placing them near flammable materials for extended periods of time.
Wedding String Lights
Clean and classic, these wedding lights add luminescence and elegance to your wedding decor. Their decorating uses are limited only by your imagination.
White wedding lights are available in incandescent or LED and come in mini, globe, C6, C7 and C9 styles. The difference between incandescent and LED is economy and safety. LED wedding lights are more expensive but run cooler than incandescent. LED lights also use about 80% less electricity than incandescent, so they pay for themselves over time. Also, LED wedding lights have a much longer bulb life than incandescent, reducing the expense of replacing worn out string lights. With the right accessories, LED wedding lights make a brilliant ceiling-to-floor display or a wonderful accent to the rope light sculptures.
Mini wedding string lights are best used as accents around windows and doors. If you are planning an outdoor wedding these lights make great arbor accents. Nesting them in the arbor’s foliage creates a starry canopy for the bride and groom.
Here’s a quick and easy wedding decoration idea. Loosely wrap (like a cigar) a string of LED mini wedding lights in tulle and place along the edge of a table top. You’ve created a gorgeous wedding decoration in just a few minutes.
Globe, C6, C7 and C9 wedding lights are best for exterior or perimeter applications. Globe wedding lights come in two sizes (G12 and G25). Globe wedding lights can be used as room accents like around the tops of walls or windows.
No matter what type of wedding lights you use, it is a good idea to buy an extra strand or two just in case of emergencies (the nervous bride will be forever grateful). Also, plug all the lights in to ensure they are working properly. A little preventative measure goes a long way.
Keep your wedding decorating tasks minimal and still make your guests think you’ve spent countless hours creating the perfect atmosphere. Wedding lights make it possible. With a little imagination and lots of fun, you’ll have the perfect look for your special day!
It’s your wedding – go big or go home, including the lighting. This lavish set up will surely leave your guests in awe. Cover the whole reception venue (yes, the whole venue!) with thousands and thousands of lights and treat them to a gorgeous spectacle.
Even the simplest string lights make a stunning statement. If you want to keep everything on the down low, limit your lights to a few strings and let your love’s glow radiate.
When it comes to lighting, chandeliers are a must-have. This fixture is versatile and fits just about any wedding affair – from luxurious and grand parties down to low-key and rustic celebrations.

Fantastic Floors and Pleasing Paths
These areas and corners sometimes get overlooked but with the right lighting elements, floors and pathways can be a fantastic asset to your wedding venue. Dainty details and simple lighting decors are definitely enough to make a big statement.
Jars of Joy
If you want to include more lighting to your decor, using mason jars as candle holder is a great idea. It’s simple and easy to do but works wonders to a venue, especially outdoor gatherings. These joyful jars cast a magical air to the surroundings.
Don’t leave the venue’s stairs bare. There are a number of ways to glam up this side of the venue –where most of the guests will pass — like this candles and greenery combo that is simply stunning.
Here’s another trick for one of your venue’s corners: floating candles in gleaming glass pillars. Create a beautiful contrast by adding vines of greenery, a carpet of moss, and some small shrub.
Even your chairs need some bling, too! Provide illumination to your bare floors with candles in pillar glasses. Finish the look with loose petals of your favorite flowers. You can go monochromatic with this one or do something fun and colorful. Remind your guests to be extra careful to avoid accidents.
All you truly need in order for your venue to standout is an eye-catching piece that will spark your guests’ interest, like this vintage candelabra. Nothing fancy – just the right mix of greens, florals, and white candles. Completing the look is a crescent of smaller candles on the floor for added dazzle.
Sprinkle of Pixie Dust
Look as if you’ve collected a million fireflies with this dreamy display! Infuse a modern twist by using contemporary and geometric light cages and LED string lights. Spread them at random areas around your venue and let your guests chance upon them and be surprised.
Path to Forever
Having a night time ceremony? Be surrounded by a gorgeous glow by lining up string lights to create an unforgettable aisle. You can get creative with this one by adding more elements like candles or lanterns.
Blooms and Bulbs
Dainty and dreamy, this combination of hanging blooms and bulbs is enough to take the breath away out of your guests. This lighting plan is perfect for an indoor (or outdoor!) spring fling. Too pretty!
