We are all about the wedding details—cakes, flowers, monogrammed invites, and more. But we have to admit this understated fact: Lighting is the single most important décor element at your wedding. And while, at first, that thought sounds more functional than fun, hear us out: The bulbs and candles you select are what will ultimately light your perfect venue, make your photos just right, and keep the party going—even after the sun sets. So, yeah, lighting is important, and it’s an essential element of both your budget and wedding-day décor. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it—in fact, you should have fun with it. As with any other design detail, treat choosing, planning, and installing the night’s illumination as yet another opportunity to carry out your design vision—whatever style that is.
But seriously, as you start to think about your lighting plan, remember that the options are endless and can be easily catered to any venue, budget, and style. Keep scrolling to see picture-perfect wedding lighting ideas that will make your day shine—like, literally. This is your time in the spotlight so now’s your chance to choose the right light.
