Creative Lighting Ideas to Brighten Up Your Wedding Venue!


Summer’s long gone, the monsoons have ended and winter is fast approaching. This only goes to say that the dark, cold nights are well on their way. And if you have a wedding coming up, you best plan out the perfect way to light up that drab winter mood and add a nice warm touch to your big day!
What’s more is lighting plays a vital role in setting the mood for your wedding so choosing the perfect way to brighten up your wedding venue is kind of important. Plus, creative lighting ideas definitely amp your wedding decor by a couple of notches.
So to help you out with all the brilliant ways to achieve a gorgeous, glam wedding atmosphere that is also warm and cosy, we’ve made a list of some unique and unusual lighting décor ideas that we came across and simply loved.
Check them out, they’re quite impressive!

 

LIGHT BULBS

Who would’ve thought something as simple as light bulbs could make wedding décor look so pretty? We also love this décor idea for how easy to incorporate it is.

PAPER LANTERNS

String your wedding venue with a couple of paper lanterns fitted with string lights or bulbs. You could also opt for colourful bulbs inside white paper lanterns for a colourful yet muted atmosphere.  This goes both ways! Colour paper lanterns with white lights work just as well.

STRING LIGHTS

Drape your wedding venue with some overhead string/bistro lights hung in aesthetic and creative ways for a romantic, makeshift ceiling.

TWINE BALLS OF LIGHT

Another way to incorporate lights is to place them in or around a ball made of rope, twine or cord. The best part is they’re totally DIY!
To make the ball, all you need to do is wrap the rope/twine/cord tightly around a balloon in random patterns and cover it with a layer of glue. Make the sure the glue is mixed with a portion of water to make it easier to slather on. Let the ball dry overnight. Once, it’s dry, pop the balloon with a pin and voila! Your very own twine ball. Now all you need to do is place any kind of light inside them and hang them up.

MASON JARS

Mason jars are so DIY too! Pick out all the old jam jars and nutella jars from your cupboard and use them to add a creative touch your wedding lighting and décor.

SKY LANTERNS

TEA CUP PROPS

Using over-turned tea and saucer sets as wedding lighting certainly add a whimsical atmosphere to the venue. A simple way to do this is to use plastic/paper cups and plates, glue them together and drill a hole in between through which you could fit in your light.

PAPER HEARTS

These work brilliantly for a cute and romantic touch! Also, they are super simple and will take you next to no time.

WINE BOTTLES

Gather all those empty wine bottles from your bachelorette and use them to make some economical and unusual light decorations!

SUSPENDED UMBRELLAS

We loved this one! So simple yet so creative. Not to mention, easy to incorporate. Experiment with colours and patterns of the umbrellas and also the lights. You could also try turning the umbrellas upside down!
