Are you talking about the round bulbs on a cord?  Kind of like christmas lights on steroids?  I googled cafe lights because that’s what I thought you were talking about, and a zillion different things came up that don’t look like that.

Anyway, if that is what you’re talking about, I think they’d be gorgeous.  I have no idea how many strings you’d need, though.

My bff found some on clearance at Target recently.  I also saw some at World Market.

Thank you for posting this! I have been searching for these forever! I can’t seem to find them. Thank you sooo much for that link to World Market. I wouldn’t have thought to check there. Those are perfect! I didn’t realize they were so expensive either. Yikes! Oh well.

@alphajuliet: I don’t know. FI is going to measure for me when he gets home. We probably need a lot since we are roping off a dance floor area and bar with them.

@alphajuliet: Oh gosh, I have no idea. But I’ve been thinking I want them. Even though our venue is indoors, the ceilings are VERY high and we will definitely need extra lighting – and I love cafe lights as a solution!!!  Stay in touch though and I’ll get measurements!

 

And yes. Cafe lights should make the WB rounds… Milk glass, too! 😉

Honestly, if you have a Hobby Lobby near you, their Christmas decorations are already out. IDK if they have them there or not, but the one near me has a whole aisle of nothing but different kinds of lights, so if you have one near you, it might be worth a 10 minute browse just in case.

I’m interested in getting these as well ladies. My wedding is April 29th of next year. So if we all pitched in some cash we would be spending that much. I don’t know how much I would need either, I would just deal with whatever you guys all bought which I’m sure would be enough.

@NYshoppingirl: I’d be totally happy pitching in and taking whatever everyone else got!! This is making me remember my middle school days when we would all split a pair of jeans… 😉
