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.
We’ll never get over this statement chandelier over the dance floor from a rustic chic lodge wedding captured by one of our Ruffled members, Jamie Mercurio.
And how bout these unique, life-sized macrame orbs?! The cream tone and natural fibers juxtaposes wonderfully against the vibrantly patterned table.
Neon fringe for days please! This industry event was jam-packed with modern disco vibes, including the crystal, ribbon and flower infused chandelier giving color to the clear topped tent ceiling.
When in doubt, create your own secret garden with a firefly effect! Exclusive Italy Weddings took to the challenge with the kind of design genius we crave.
This mix of string lights and oriental pendants in an al fresco, family-style reception never gets old. Long live the organized chaos look!
We’re saying heck yes to all the creativity we just witnessed, and we can’t wait to see the genius to come! Unique light fixtures (even string lights + Edison bulbs) will always be a foolproof way to set the mood.
