We have been loving all these 2017 wedding trends!
Another great trend we’ve been seeing is lighting.
Lighting is like floral arrangements; it’s the frosting on the cake.
It’s an inexpensive decoration and can definitely liven a space.
Here is our list of top 10 lighting trends!
- Twinkle Lights
These are perfect to create a romantic ambiance at your wedding. Plus, they’re really cheap! If you want to go with something more unique, rent twinkle trees and line the aisle with them!
Chandeliers come in many shapes and sizes. You can get crystal or brass or nickel finish or even make them out of flowers! It really adds that chic feel.
3. Bistro Lighting
Everyone tends to associate bistro lighting with cafe’s or restaurants, but you can totally use them at your wedding as well! Between dangling them from wooden beams to creating a cool backdrop to stringing them inside a tent to draping them around a dance floor… The possibilities are endless!
4. Up lighting
This is great to do when you use pipe and drape as a backdrop to your head table or to make a space smaller or to hide an ugly wall. Up lighting is also great to illuminate a pole or sections of a wall. It makes for a dramatic entrance to your reception!
5. Hanging Candles
Calling all Harry Potter fans!! What better way to create the perfect wedding than with hanging candles like in the Great Hall at Hogwarts?? For you non Harry Potter fans, hanging candles provides a romantic feel to your wedding and looks really great for pictures.
6. Hanging Fixtures
Do you see a theme going here? Hanging lights are on point this year. Definitely incorporate it somehow with your wedding!
7. Pathway Lights
We are seriously loving this trend. It’s simple, inexpensive, and looks super classy. You can do something simple and line the aisle on both sides with candles or create a fun design. The sky is the limit!
8. Light Up Letters
These are a great way to personalize your wedding. Plus, they make a great backdrop for photos!
9. Lanterns and vases
Rose gold, mercury votives, lanterns, and geometric vases are super IN right now. They are great for table centerpieces and to line the aisle!
So, this isn’t technically considered a light, but COME ON. They create a PERFECT photo op at your wedding. Talk to your photographer about creating a long exposure picture to write out “love” or “thank you” or a swirl like the picture below.
