Lovely Lighting Ideas

Great lighting comes in all shapes and sizes. Tall taper candles have become quite popular in wedding reception decor and it isn’t hard to see why. With so many candle holder options, you can really cater your tabletop decor to reflect the aesthetic of your wedding. We also love the option of infusing color with the candles themselves.

We can’t emphasize enough how important lighting is to your wedding. Great, intentional lighting has the ability to add so much interest and ambiance to your wedding, turning a seemingly generic venue into something absolutely special. Luckily, great lighting is easy to come by. Below we’ve rounded up some of our favorite lighting ideas to help transform your wedding day, and you can see the rest of our lighting picks here.
