16 Ways to Light Up your Autumn/Winter Wedding

The days are getting shorter as we come into the autumn months, but it just makes it all the better for getting more inventive when it comes to lighting up your Big Day! Lighting has come a long way in wedding decor, and while we’ll always love the romantic atmosphere created by a stunning candle-lit room, there are plenty more ways to add some extra sparkle to the occasion. Edison style bulbs have become a massive trend in decor, and are right at home with the modern setup of long banquet style tables at wedding receptions. Many couples are also taking advantage of some of the outdoor spaces at venues by using magical fairy lights and ball lighting to hang over trees to create a real romance to the outdoors. Another huge trend this year has been sparkly dancefloor lighting and of course big bold statement lettering as a focal point for photos. Need any more inspiration for your wedding lighting?
