Fairy lights are beautiful and instantly add a sense of ambience to any room they literally light up. They are especially great for wedding decor – here are a few ways you can use them on your big day.
Bunting and ribbons
You can create a false ceiling effect by draping crepe ribbons or bunting across your reception space and interweaving them with string lights; this is a great way to make a room feel a bit more intimate.
Even in a relatively small space, this would take a fair amount of ribbons, bunting and lights, so what seems like a simple, easy idea might end up racking up quite the cost. Still, the pay off is definitely worth it.
A star canopy (where string lights start from the centre of the room and spread out in different directions like a star) is a really dramatic centrepiece and can especially liven up a blank canvas wedding venue such as a marquee or rustic barn.
While it can be done as a DIY project, it would be very time consuming to set up, so we’d advise hiring a professional decor company to create this look for you.
Take it outside
If you’re having a summer wedding and you have an outdoor area to play with, we definitely recommend setting up some string lights. It easily makes an outdoor area really pretty, and instantly creates a cool break out area where guests can relax and take a brief break from partying.
