One of my most favor types of event lighting (lighting in general, really!) is the ever classic Edison Bulb! To me, nothing is more classically beautiful than strings of Edison bulbs twinkling in the night! An Edison bulb can be beautiful on its own simply hanging from the wire, but they can be dressed up with beautiful glass canisters of all shapes and sizes and event light shades around the bulb to emit a stunning glow in the room. Any way you use you, can’t fail! They are the perfect touch to make any event magical!
Strings of Edison Bulbs hanging over a ceremony site like this would be stunning!
I love the look of the long bulbs over the reception tables. Such a different look, but so much fun!
Peeking through the branches! I love the larger bulbs, makes such a statement!
Takes my breath away!
As I’ve said before, lighting can completely transform a room and is a vital part to a beautiful event! My big surprise is ready to reveal next week! I can’t wait to share it with you, it turned out better than I could have hoped for! The big reveal is going to wonderful!!!!!
Candles are the perfect way to add romance to any event! At every wedding I do, I always urge my brides to add as many candles as possible to add a golden flicker to any space! You can use candles as centerpieces, on your tables, at your ceremony, around your cake and even outside in the trees! Candles are so versatile and can be used to match any theme or decor whether its the color of the actual candle, or the candle holder and how it is used in the venue!
Here are a few of my favorite ways to use candles! Enjoy!
I love the pops of Tiffany blue in this monochromatic tablescape! Adds a flirty, feminine touch to this already elegantly beautiful event!
Who doesn’t love a tall taper to add height to a table?! Plus the white tapers dripping in crystals with the plush florals is simply stunning!
Here’s another fun way to use tapers that is a bit more rustic and casual. Such a fun look in the clear wine bottles to add a fun touch to a dinner table!
I love the use of candle holders at different heights in this picture! Plus the glow from behind the flowers make the whole room glow a beautiful golden white!
Finally, I am obsessed with the suspended votives hanging above the tables. I think this is such a fun new way to play with candles taking the term “lighting” more figuratively! It gives the event a more whimsical look, one I can’t wait to use in one of my next events!!!
I have two more of my favorite types of event lighting to share with you this week! Make sure you come back to see and let me know which is your favorite!
