just curious what everyone’s experience has been with cafe lighting. I desperately want cafe lighting at my tent wedding either inside the tent, strung from the tent to the ground outside by a seating area/fire pit, or both! Have you had much luck with finding reasonable prices for cafe string lights? On one hand I don’t want to pay $2 a foot, but on the other I don’t know what I would do with 100 feet of string lights or more!

I would buy them and then sell them after the wedding! They are very popular and even if you only recoup half of the cost they will still be much cheaper than renting. $2/foot is the rental price, right? You can order them online for around $1/foot. Here’s one place that sells 25 feet (25 bulbs) for $28.

Is anyone looking to buy theirs and resell to me afterwards?!

I know this is an older thread but I just want to make sure I’m not crazy. My event decorator wants to charge $300/strand with a 3 strand minimum for a space that’s 66′ x 18′
Is that crazy? How many strands did you all use? I’m seriously considering buying them online and having them shipped over instead…
