Unique Wedding Lighting

To create the right mood, you need the right lighting!  The right lighting can make an ordinary space in to something extraordinary.  If you are looking to make an impact at your event, lighting is a great way to do that!  Here are a few unique ways lighting can be used for a ceremony or reception to make a big impact.

Every bride thinks about using votive candles for her guest tables but have you thought about making a design in the grass or along a pathway?  This idea is simple and inexpensive to achieve.

You can also use large lanterns or luminaries for a bigger impact.  It will give a similar look but you won’t need as many!

To add a pop of color use tissue paper inside mason jars! This look so stunning at night!

For an indoor reception space that lacks character use lighting along the walls to create a certain mood.  My favorite way to transform the space is to use a pattern on the walls or ceilings.

For all of my crafty brides you can make your own sign using light bulbs.  Not only does it create mood lighting in a creative way but you can create it to say any saying you want!

New Trend: Glamping!

 Camping may not be your idea of fun but glamping might be.  Glamping is a term combining glamour and camping and is all about luxury.  It is like staying in a 5 star hotel but in your own private tent.  Brides are loving the idea of a glamping wedding where all of the guests stay in their own luxury tents with the wedding ceremony and reception nearby.

These tents can even have bathrooms!!!  Or you can even rent luxury bathroom tents!

If you want to have a glamping wedding, I would suggest consulting a company or location that specializes in these luxury tents.  They can help this idea come to life especially if you want your guests to have their own tents.  Of course, you can imagine having a glamping wedding isn’t cheap.

 I love the idea of the activities you get to do while glamping like bike riding, fishing and roasting marshmallows by the fire.

I think glamping combines the best of both worlds…luxury accomodations and the outdoors. I would love to attend a glamping wedding.  Would you?
