LIGHTS! camera, action...

Looking for a way to set the scene and pump up the romance for your ceremony and reception? DIY style lighting can certainly be your answer! these lighting tricks serve their practical purposes, while creating a beautiful setting perfect for your celebration!

{Twinkle light alternatives: love the clean, whimsical look of the hanging lanterns - while they might be a little tricky to hang, the lit mason jars are simple to construct - a little colored tissue paper and (battery powered) votive candles will do the trick. If you're looking for just a little light accent, try using wire to hang glass votive holders & place your tea lights in the them.}

{These hanging lightbulbs are effortlessly romantic and the different sized bulbs hanging in the trees exudes a little vintage flair.}

{Clearly we're fans of the mason jar when it comes to lighting... so an entire fixture constructed from them? - perfect. The look is completed by using twinkle lights in the fixture as well as throughout the rest of the reception area.}

{Two different approaches to the hanging lantern: First, the string of decorative luminaries - a clean look, perfect for any summer wedding - round paper lanterns would also look great here as they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The next look - these candle sticks enclosed in glass lanterns are so enchanting and whimsical, when accompanied by the candles on the tables, this lighting scene is a definite wow factor amongst the decor! photos via Martha Stewart Weddings.}

{Of course you can never go wrong with twinkle lights! two different receptions, two different styles, and two completely different settings... and twinkle lights satisfy both magnificently! - If your dad hangs them every year for the holidays, he can do it again for your wedding! photos via Elizabeth Anne Designs and Style Me Pretty.}

{Being in the event industry, we have a huge appreciation for cohesiveness... even when comes to something as simple as our IE blog posts! In a recent post we displayed our love for the bunting trend, check out how to make your own lighted paper pennant garland from Once Wed.}
