As we said in the post Tips for Pulling Off Mismatched Bridesmaid Dresses<<, usually we suggest you avoiding using contrasting colors because it’s too hard to balance such as green and red. But these two colors are in the same color saturation, so they can combine naturally.

Also, the emerald and canyon rose color are our bestsellers in past two years, we just love the tones and mood of the entire wedding.

Here’s how to make your day shine—like, literally.

Bride and Groom Under Lights
PHOTO BY AMBER GRESS

We are all about the wedding details—cakes, flowers, monogrammed invites, and more. But we have to admit this understated fact: Lighting is the single most important décor element at your wedding. And while, at first, that thought sounds more functional than fun, hear us out: The bulbs and candles you select (whether they’re simple votives or over-the-top chandeliers) are what will ultimately light your perfect venue, make your photos just right, and keep the party going—even after the sun sets. So, yeah, lighting is important, and it’s an essential element of both your budget andwedding-day décor. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it—in fact, you shouldhave fun with it. As with any other design detail, treat choosing, planning, and installing the night’s illumination as yet another opportunity to carry out your design vision—whatever style that is.

And we don’t just mean “style” in terms of whether you’re a modern, romantic, or glam bride. Instead, take a moment to think about your priorities and create a lighting plan around that. For instance, if you’re a foodie bride who envisions a wine-fueled night under the stars, consider hanging string lights above the dinner area or placing a long line of taper candles down the middle of the table. Both would spotlight the night’s main show (the food) and keep your guests in their seats way past the final course. Same goes for you flower ladies. If you’re spending that much per bloom, show them off with plenty of votives scattered about. And if you already have your dancing shoes ready for a night on the dance floor, make a show of it with a disco ball up top or paper lanterns around the area’s perimeter. (You can see examples of both below, but a lighting statement here almost guarantees a good party—why do you think you like dancing at a night club so much?)

But seriously, as you start to think about your lighting plan, remember that the options are endless and can be easily catered to any venue, budget, and style. Keep scrolling to see picture-perfect wedding lighting ideas that will make your day shine—like, literally. This is your time in the spotlight so now’s your chance to choose the right light.

Bring the Outside In

Hanging greenery with candles

At this Philadelphia real wedding, floral and lighting designer Oleander brought the bride’s vision for an outdoor vibe indoors with hanging greenery, hanging votive handles—and even more candles on the floor.

Create a Ceiling of Lights

Unique lighting idea
PHOTO BY SARA LOBLA

How amazing is this photo? We love how the ceiling of lights defines the dinner space while also creating the look of a starry sky (even in daylight).

Incorporate String Lights

Unique lighting idea
PHOTO BY SYLVIE GIL PHOTOGRAPHY

Again, string lights up above for the win. This lighting example works especially well because the lights can be easily strung through the existing trellis of greenery.

Mix Garlands and Drapes

Minimalist ceremony venue with lights

At this Brooklyn real wedding, planner Jove Meyer filled the empty blank space (thanks to those gorgeous high ceilings) with greenery-wrapped garlands, string lights, and white draping. The result: Lights perfectly shining from behind said simple sheers.

Hang a Fixture

Unique lighting idea
PHOTO BY DAVY WHITENER

You can always make a statement with one eye-catching fixture. This antique bronze chandelier does the trick—and is perfect if you want your reception to feel like an at-home dinner party.

Use Taper Candles on Tables

PHOTO BY NIRAV PATEL PHOTOGRAPHY

We can’t get enough of this light-filled scene. Who knew the balance of taper candles on tables and bistro lights up above could be so perfect?

Line Up Lanterns

A line of lit lanterns provides light for an open-air dinner, while also setting the scene for one serious dance sesh. (The sand dance floor isn’t required but highly encouraged.)

Create Chandelier Orbs

PHOTO BY SYLVIE GIL PHOTOGRAPHY

Are these cool chandelier orbs more perfect for a Restoration Hardware catalog or a wedding reception? Hard to decide—but we sure do love them filled with greenery against a sleek white backdrop.

Scatter Spot Lights

PHOTO BY LAUREN FAIR PHOTOGRAPHY

It may sound obvious, but use lighting to show off your beautiful venue (duh). Here, golden spot lights are used along the perimeter of the dinner space to highlight beautiful stone walls.

Illuminate the Outside

Candles Outside Tent

Don’t forget to illuminate the outside of your space, too—especially if you’re pitching a tent in the middle of a dark field. Here, Tara Guérard Soirée lined the edges of this white-draped tent with pillar candles in tall glass vases.

Hang Mini String Lights

PHOTO BY KYLEE YEE

String lights come in all shapes and sizes but these mini ones are especially cool. Why? The small bulb size means they make enough of a statement but also don’t distract from those perfectly-planned table settings.

12of 24

 

Mix Garlands and Statement Candles

Reception Dinner
PHOTO BY CHAZ CRUZ

Don’t think you ever have to choose between a long table garland and statement candles. Here, short pillar candles are used on the outside of each garland centerpiece for one statement display.

Line Your Staircase

PHOTO BY REBECCA YALE PHOTOGRAPHY; FLOWERS BY THE BLOOM OF TIME; PLANNING BY TARYN LEACH EVENTS

Remember to light up the tricky areas where your guests will gather after dark. Staircases are such places, as are paths to the bathrooms and bar. That being said, we can totally see this candle-lined staircase as a first look location or ceremony site.

14of 24

 

Light Up Trees

Wedding reception venue
PHOTO BY LAUREN FAIR PHOTOGRAPHY

Now here’s a unique idea: Set up your tables around well-lit trees. We’re obsessed with how the table arrangement, trees, and spot lights draw your eyes upwards (towards cool, wooden beams) and fill up this large, industrial venue.

Hang Chandeliers Outdoors

PHOTO BY BRIAN MARCUS OF FRED MARCUS STUDIO

If chandeliers are your thing, think outside the box by hanging them outside of a ballroom. We love this unexpected take when sparklers are hung at different heights in a natural setting.

16of 24

 

Use Candles of Varying Heights

Reception Table

When you spend months curating the perfect place settings and centerpieces, you best use candles of varying heights to show off your handiwork. These tall, black pillar candles and mini votives do the trick.

Hang Lights Around Trees

Table Setting

We’ve talked about hanging lights from trees but you can hang them around trees, too. At this garden wedding in San Diego, string lights look beautiful when wrapped around a statement tree’s base and branches.

18of 24

 

Use Moroccan-Inspired Lanterns

Reception
PHOTO BY MEG SMITH PHOTOGRAPHY

At this elegant backyard bash, a cluster of Moroccan-inspired lanterns kept the open-air tent lit well into the night. We especially love how the silver hue adds a metallic accent up above (and coordinates with the marble-inspired table settings).

Mix Antique Chandeliers With Greenery

Talk about a statement installation. Here, an unexpected mix of antique chandeliers and flowing greenery makes for one serious photo op moment.

Light Hundreds of Candles

Italian cathedral venue
PHOTO BY LISA POGGI

This photo is yet another reminder of how to use lighting to highlight your space. This real bride wanted to highlight the natural beauty of her ceremony site (and rightfully so) so she lined the aisle and altar with hundreds of candles—and zero flowers.

21of 24

 

Use Candelabras

Reception Tent with Candles
PHOTO BY CORBIN GURKIN PHOTOGRAPHY

Tall candelabras do double duty in that they add both light and height to your tabletops. At this wedding, white candles mixed with white linen tablecloths allow the gold accents (and candlelight) to be the focal point.

22of 24

 

Create an Illusion

Table with Greenery Garland
PHOTO BY TWO TWENTY BY CHI CHI

Here, string lights are hung in straight lines to visually draw your eye towards the peak of the tent. This all-time favorite design works especially well with clear-top tents because it creates the illusion of stars after dark.

Hang Glass Orbs

Can you say epic photo? This shot features a couple on the dance floor that’s surrounded by hanging glass orbs filled with mini votive candles.

Dance Under a Disco Ball

And speaking of dance floors, don’t underestimate the power of a retro disco ball against string lights. The result is pure magic—and let’s be honest: Who doesn’t want to be in the middle of this dance floor?

5 wedding decor ideas infused with the local flair

Whether you are travelling to an exotic far off local, or planning to invite out of town guests to your current home, incorporate the flavors, sights and sound of the local culture to give your guests an enhanced personalized experience.

 

  1. Welcome Bags and favors

Set the tone of the wedding festivities with a welcome bag in their room or upon check in including a welcome drink, map of the venue, wedding itinerary, recommendations for restaurants within walking distance and a list of the main attractions to see while they are in town. Personalize your recommendations with your own favorite spots. Add local favorite snacks and beverages to give guests a preview of what is in store.

  1. Choose a venue with a local character

During your venue search look for sites that genuinely connect with your guests, properties that retain the local charm but are also retrofitted with all modern comforts. An event is more fun when you create ties to the venue that all guests can share.

  1. Decor

When planning your decorations, ask your designer to use locally inspired flowers, plants and other materials. Consider a fusion of styles – something contemporary you love with something purely local for a look that is unique to your wedding.

  1. Customize your menu

Choose your menu basis the uniqueness of your wedding destination like the south Indians, for example, must have their parboiled rice and fish. You do not have to turn your entire wedding into a fiesta, simply request local ingredients throughout your menu, and sampler-size local delicacies as finger foods at your cocktail reception.

  1. Entertainment

When it comes giving a complete experience to your guest, music and entertainment ties everything together. Panjabis’ love their their dhol, keeps the guests moving and is not something you see every day. Another more interactive form of entertainment could be incorporating artisans who are making a handicraft that you can send home with your guests or even a sketch artist to draw portraits.

There are gazillions of articles with instructions on cutting your wedding budget. “Cut your guest list,” they say…uhhh….duhh… where the guest list is usually a 500 person minimum. Unfortunately, the majority of the advice out there does not apply to big-fat-Indian weddings.WDC to the rescue! Yours truly has rounded up 5 very applicable tips on saving on your very wallet heavy:
1. Food
Depending on your families, opt for an all vegetarian menu. Include enough paneer dishes, and most of your meat eating cousins won’t miss the non vegetarian food too much. If an all vegetarian menu isn’t an option, try concentrating most of the non veg options at the cocktail hour instead of in the main course.
2. Wedding Sites
Surprisingly, the nicest wedding sites (museums, public gardens, etc) can be the most affordable. Make sure to consider alternative locations before opting for your closest 5 star hotel.
3. Bouquets
Forgo the bridal bouquets. Not only are they costly, but they look out of place at Indian weddings. A classier and more cost effective option is for the bride to enter with a garland or decorated coconut; and for the bridesmaids to carry diyas.
4. Alcohol
Sigh, Indian weddings and their alcohol. Omitting alcohol at an Indian wedding is often out of the question. However, you do have two options on cutting the alcohol budget: 1) Do not serve alcohol at the Sangeet. It’s not necessary, and often not expected. You don’t want drunk guests dancing around with wooden dandia sticks. 2) Limit the choices or hours of availability, not the amount.  You can get away with eliminating hard alcohol and sticking to champagne, wine, beer and a signature drink. An alternative is to limit the hours on the bar.
5. Centerpiece
Stick to seasonal flowers, and alternate costlier high centerpieces with less expensive low centerpieces.
