Have You Tried These Innovative Lighting Ideas For Your Reception Night?

BY The WMG Bride | 24 Feb, 2016 | 7 views | 3 min read

Lighting = Boring stuff your dad discusses? Nope!  We figured that the last leg of every wedding, the reception must not be boring and blah - because this is after all, the last image anyone will have on their mind when they leave the wedding. That's where lighting comes in - pretty outdoor/indoor lighting ideas that will make any reception stand out. Candle showcase all night long  aura gautam vedi

Aura By Gautam Vedi★ 5

Lots of candles, it's always good to go old-school. The idea is to create a charming space that gets all the attention as a central installation. The light from the installation will also give a soft, romantic vibe to the entire banquet.

Hanging Lanterns from trees 1452171912_8P7A9714 (1)

Decor: Flagship By FNP★ 5

The simplest and prettiest way to do up your reception night? Hang softly lit lanterns from the tree. They make for a great photo op and also give a magical, softly lit vibe to the entire area.  Given that these are paper lanterns, they shouldn't cost you a bomb either.

Use bulbs to spread the cheer

A bunch of bulbs can add a nice retro effect to the whole event so get them all up in all sizes to add a bit of glam to it. Think of where you could place these innovatively- for example, one area could be a bulb suspension over the bar,  or over a lounge area.

 Temple bells can revv up the reception

 Birdcage boho is a nice idea

Birdcages could have been done to death but not when they come with lights - they add a mystic charm to the outdoors and make for great selfie stations.

Floral canopies are beautiful at night but nothing adds drama and makes them shine like if you add chandeliers to them.

 Subtle chandeliers and purple lighting

Purple lighting it seems makes the setting dreamy and romantic - that's why when you add subtle chandeliers, it looks even more magical.
