Whether you’re decorating for Christmas, an event, or wedding Christmas lights are sure to draw attention. String lights of all types and sizes can make any wedding decorating style look more beautiful and welcoming. There is something about twinkly lights at a wedding that just adds that extra little something creating all kinds of gorgeousness when done right. You may call it girly, sparkly, even cliché and overdone, but for me, twinkle lights and weddings just go together like peanut butter and jelly or bride and groom. Not just on trees and bushes, but ceilings in venues and tents, and yes, even in mason jars!
Here are some tips to use Christmas lights for weddings:
Tip #1: Twinkle lights are most effective in creating a gorgeous detail for a sunset or evening wedding. Never fear, though, daytime weddings can have twinkle lights too, especially if your reception is indoors. And if your ceremony is earlier in the day, watch the magic happen as dusk settles and the lights come on.
Tip #2: Twinkle lights are a beautiful enhancement to take a tent from ordinary to magical under a starry night, especially in a clear tent.
Tip #3: Mirror tiles and twinkle lights would make for an ah-mazing backdrop for a photo booth. After the wedding, wouldn’t this DIY project make the perfect wall art in your living room or master bedroom? Great mood lighting and conversation piece
Tip #4: Twinkle lights provide an awesome background for a ceremony, whether they are wrapped around a gazebo or an arch. How about built into a wall or hanging straight down from the ceiling to glistening, glimmering, glittering effect?
Tip #5: How about some super simple details that work well as a DIY. Wrap your twinkly lights in tulle, mason jars, even hoola hoops (spray painted a solid color like white or silver) draped with lights for an inexpensive yet eye catching chandelier!
From party lights to fairy lights to mini lights, there are some wonderful ways that you can light up your reception area, whether it is in a formal space, like a banquet hall, or a more casual space, like a barn.
