Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, especially because there are so many different decisions that need to be made. When it comes to making decisions, many people prioritize the things that will impact the view and aesthetic of their wedding. In this blog, we’re going to discuss the important role that lighting can play in a wedding venue’s ambiance.

Planning Lighting

When it comes to the ambiance of your big day, there are many different things to consider. However, one of the things that many people overlook is lighting. It’s important not to underestimate the power of lighting, as it can be an extremely important factor in making sure that your wedding and ceremony look the way that you want them to.

String Lights

String lights are a great option if you’re going for a delicate and whimsical look. There are a variety of different string light options available, so consider reaching out to your venue and asking what options couples in the past have gone with. One of the things that you’ll want to keep in mind when it comes to string lights is that you’ll need something to hang them on.


Making sure that you have the appropriate tools needed to hang string lights is essential. You’ll also want to make sure that you have the right electric hookups needed in order to hang the string lights in the place that you want.

Significant Lighting

If you’re going to be having your wedding at night in an outdoor venue, then you’ll most likely want to have more significant lighting than string lights will provide. Finding the right lighting for this type of situation can be challenging, so consider reaching out to your venue and seeing what lighting options they already have.


Lanterns are a great option for weddings for a variety of reasons. Not only are lanterns typically very affordable, but they also allow for you to place them specifically where you want light. We love it when the aisle is lined with lanterns, as it highlights the bride and helps draw the attention of the guests where you want it.

Throughout the Venue

When many people think about lighting for their wedding, they focus on the ceremony. While this is important, it’s also important to think about lighting throughout the rest of your venue. If there are stairs at your venue, then adding candles or lanterns on the stairs can be a great way to illuminate the path and make a great first impression on your guests.


If you’re going to be having candles as part of your lighting then it’s important to make sure that you have enough. When it comes to candles, more is more, so don’t be afraid to buy more than you think you may need. You’re probably not going to be able to do a practice run of all your candles, so make sure that you’re prepared for a variety of different situations.
