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!
