If you’re going for a romantic, vintage-feel, candles are a beautiful choice. They light up the space in such a natural way, and so the more candles to illuminate the room, the better!

If you want to take a modern approach, LED lighting that can change color throughout the evening is a great choice.

Use this type of lighting to create fun and different vibes as you change from speeches to food to dancing.

For a rustic wedding or any reception that takes place outdoors, consider twinkling lights or glowing lanterns hung from the rafters or surrounding trees.

For a green option, you can even use solar powered lighting or upcycle old mason jars on your wedding day!

  1. When we got married we got married at an Old Inn. To this day I wish I had taken the time to do lighting like this. I am just going to have to have a backyard Fall party one year and do this in the backyard just for the hell of it.

  2. I think that everything published was very reasonable.
    However, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however suppose you added something that makes people
    want more? I mean How to Personalize Your Wedding with
    Lighting | Extraordinary Experiences is kinda plain. You might peek
    at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write post titles to grab people to click.

    You might add a related video or a related pic or two
    to grab people excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
