Wedding Lighting Part 2
Add touches of light to your wedding decor with easy DIYs!
Welcome to Part Two of the Wedding Lighting Blog Series. This segment has ideas for illuminated centerpieces, backdrops, lanterns, photo displays and more. Lights are an inexpensive way to give the small details some charm and refinement. All of these DIYs use easy-to-find items and are relatively straightforward and quick to put together. Consider getting your friends and bridesmaids together for a wedding craft night and make it fun.
Paper Lantern Centerpiece
Nothing gives your table a warm, romantic glow like illuminated centerpieces. They can be made with battery powered fairy string lights and mini string lights, or battery powered tealights (which I prefer over candles, because who needs an accidental fire at their wedding?) Paper lanterns with battery powered tea lights placed inside can be customized to fit any decor with flowers, greenery, etc like these from remodelaholic.com.
Mason Jar Lanterns
Mason Jar Lanterns are inexpensive and a versatile way to light outdoor spaces as well as indoors. They can be grouped on tables as centerpieces, hung in trees or on hooks, or simply scattered throughout a space. Try embellishing the jars with ribbon, trim, lace, or scraps of fabric. Or use transparent paint or Modge Podge and glitter to add a little glam. I highly recommend using battery powered tea lights instead of candles. They are easy and long-lasting, and there is no risk of fire, burns, or candles going out mid-celebration.
