I looked into renting market lights  for my wedding, I was quoted $900 for weekend rental, set up, etc. Gulp.  The wedding took place in my IL’s backyard,  they decided to buy lights and have them permanently installed by an electrician.  I am sure it cost more than 1K but now they have them forever and they look fab!

@mschroth:  Omg, that is a LOT of money just for some strings of lights! You can buy globe lights at Target for pretty cheap, and have someone in your family help set them up. Then you can probably even resell them after the wedding and get back most of the money you spent on them originally.

@mschroth:  Also, look on craigslist– I just found some listed for sale for somewhat cheaper than the retail price on my local craigslist. It seems like a lot of people sell wedding decor items on there!

I saw a link on pinterest where you can make your own! Just buy regular Christmas lights and some ping pong balls, pop a hold in the ping pong ball and stick the light inside. I haven’t seen it in person, but it seems like it would work.
