Hotel Wedding Light Ideas

Oh, we do love hotels! Your time to celebrate, eat, party and get hardly any sleep, all under one roof, and let’s face it, no one ever makes the 9am breakfast! Hotels often need that extra helping hand of inspiration when it comes to making it rock on your wedding day. We’ve put together our wedding lighting ideas showing you how to personalise your hotel veue including how to dress pillars and feature focal points.

Use as much or as little inspiration as you fancy, and we’ll show you how to achieve the same look for less than you think. Over the years, we’ve all seen enough weddings know an entrance can make a big difference. Always work with your hotel architecture. If your hotel is steeped in history then you’re in luck, rolling archways and ornate ceilings are a gem for making your job that little bit easier. Don’t worry however if the grade II listed theme isn’t on your radar, having a purpose built function room in a modern hotel may not have the traditional feel, however, will benefit from suspended ceilings, many, many more power sockets and fewer restrictions for decorating.

Ooooh hello
wonderful wedding lights!
Make Your Entrance Magical

It’s going to be used a lot. Incorporating fairy lights into your thinking is an unquestionable way to ensure maximum ‘wow’ for your money, and here are the quick wins for the perfect illuminated entrance. In every wedding planner’s box of tricks, organza is by far the best value way to cover large areas, hide those bits you don’t want to see and give you that softened marquee feeling inside your hotel. Available in more variants of ivory than all the wedding gowns in the world, you’re never short of the perfect tone to match your theme and colour palette. Hang, drape and intertwine lights within your organza and you’ll have a beautifully dappled effect that’ll make that entrance rock! Our top tip for teaming lights with fabric; always ensure you use LED bulbs, they never overheat and will pass all health and safety worries from wedding organisers. Also, anything new doesn’t require a PAT test; meaning you can plug and play, making life much easier on your big day. Keep your entrance lighting simple and go naked with curtain lights. They do pretty much exactly as they sound, hang like their fabric counterparts and can be the easiest entrance lighting look to replicate. Ensure your curtain light is on a clear cable (blends easier with surroundings) and made to be lightweight so it doesn’t appear too heavy. Leave to hang vertical or swag for some dynamic. Either way, you can re-arrange in seconds to create your perfect look.

Pondering About Pillars?

If your hotel venue has exposed pillars or columns then get them lit up. Choose either curtain lights or fairy light strings to spiral to the floor. Illuminated pillars are bold. They're designed to make a statement and allow you to relieve your tables from too much decoration.

Pom Poms & Paper Lanterns

Once you’ve introduced a gorgeous glow to your hotel, it’s time to add those last little bits-and-bobs that complete the look. We’re in awe of these pretty paper balls, they’re inexpensive, super quick to assemble and lightweight so oh so easy to hang. Pom poms and paper lanterns look great just about anywhere; fill open ceilings, frame your aisle or drape from fairy lights these are a versatile decoration option. With a multitude of colours, shapes and sizes to choose from they can fit in with any dream you dare to imagine. You can go bold and bright or pastel soft and understated.
