18 Amazing Ways to Use Wedding Lights

Wedding lights have the ability to completely transform a plain ol’ room into something magical. While the wedding venues in the gallery above weren’t all your run of the mill banquet halls, you can see the power that everything from regular string lights to grand chandeliers have.

While I love the room where we had our wedding reception at The Bath Club, it was the amber uplighting we rented from the DJ’s that really made it. Combined with lots and lots and lots of candles the room had a glow that I absolutely loved.

If you’re currently trying to decide how to use wedding lights at your ceremony and reception, check out the gallery above to get a major dose of inspiration. And while some lighting installations are definitely more expensive than others, simple string lights tend to make a major impact in numbers as well. You can find some great lighting options at stores like Target and Save on Crafts for something more unique. And hey, if you have leftovers you can always use them around the holidays, too.

    I agree that lighting sets the mood for a wedding. One of my favorite Malibu wedding sites is Calamigos Ranch that has strings of lights dangling from their trees.
