Outdoor Wedding Lighting Guide

Written by: Ellie Cox

Are you planning an outdoor wedding this year? Look no further...we have everything you need! With us able to meet up to 30 people outdoors from next week, larger events and weddings are just around the corner. From wreaths & garlands to candles & lanterns, we have a range of wedding decorations which are sure to make your big day extra special.

Dreamy Dining Decor

The dining experience is a key part of your wedding day, so it's important to take the time to plan your styling!

If it's a rustic wedding you're going for, a woodland setting or open field is perfectly suited to this. Choose oak tables for your dining area with wooden benches to maintain that stripped back look. If you'd rather not have the wooden table exposed, you can cover it with a linen table cloth in a subtle colour for a more clean appearance. Complete your place settings with a bright bow tied around a sprig of foliage as a pretty decorative touch. Mini votive LED candles are also ideal for popping on each plate with a delicately designed name card for each of your guests. When considering your tableware, we find that elegance is key for any wedding! Opt for brass or gold cutlery and embossed glasses for a minimal yet classy display.

Romantic Atmosphere

Create the perfect romantic setting which will make your day truly memorable!

Festoon lights can be hung high above your table for ambient lighting as darkness falls. They can be swagged between trees or you can use festoon poles to display them with ease. You can also choose outdoor string lights and create a canopy overhead or wrap them around trees to introduce a glowing effect all around. Garden lanterns and candles are also a must for achieving that relaxing and romantic ambience. Black metal lanterns are a timeless addition to your set-up and add a contemporary feel, whilst rattan and woven lanterns offer a more rustic alternative. Place them on the floor around your dining space or sit them on the table to add a little more soft lighting as you and your guests tuck into your meal.

Glowing Greenery

A spring summer wedding isn't complete without a touch of greenery to uplift the arrangement!

You can chose faux features for minimal fuss or real foliage for a more natural and authentic look. Our spring wreaths and garlands are a low maintenance choice and look just as realistic. They are both stylish and seasonal, with the option to pair them with micro lights to bring them to life! LED candles are also great for lining alongside a garland within the middle of your table as a centrepiece. They constantly remain cool so they can be left illuminated for hours at a time and are super safe to use around any little ones who may be attending the wedding! Our outdoor TruGlow® candles look just as good as the real thing, with the added bonus of being fully waterproof. For a varied display, style a range of sized candles at differing heights to fill the table effortlessly.
