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.

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.
