25 Unique Wedding Lights to Brighten Your Day

We’ve got a one track mind today. Our subject of fixation? Unique wedding lights! One of our favorite ways we’ve seen couples level up on the already glorious floral chandelier wedding trend is the incorporation of wicker pendants, wire shades, geometric orbs, hanging crystals and the like. Lights are one way to spruce up any ceremony or reception scene, and these 25 examples below offer testimony to that fact.

Let’s start with this modern table that’s pretty in pink with flourishing greenery and mid-century gold lanterns. We love the movement it creates as your eyes naturally follow the lines top to bottom.

Hey listen, they don’t even need to be functional! Just the visual effect of added texture from above gives dimension to a scene. Take these grapevine beehive pendants for example – a natural enhancement to the already breezy oceanside table.

Even if you don’t go full out lighting installation, adding floating candles or suspended lanterns is such a nice touch that exhibits romance from end to end of the table.
