….the outdoor chandelier look.
We are having cafe lights just like this and I’d looooove to recreate this look with the outdoor chandeliers, but I just don’t know how to do it! Our venue doesn’t allow us to hang anything from the trees, and I don’t know what I’d hang the chandeliers from. Oh and our rental company doesn’t rent chandeliers like this, so there’s the problem of obtaining them too. I feel like the chandeliers would totally bring the entire look together, but I just can’t figure out how to execute. Help….me….please.

Not to add another issue to your tree chandleer… but I am genueinely courious…how would you light them? Whould you spray paint some extention cords so they wereent bright orange?

@Mrs. Meowerson: omgosh, wow. i wish I never opened this. I wanna get married again now- crap! I can;t help you but wanted to applaud your taste:)) I don;t know where your wedding is but make sure the guests have those bug repellant candles at their tables or something….i’d imagine if your doing it in a moist area that those suckers will be lovin the lights.
*edit: To a previous poster: Hopefully the cords won’t be an issue -I have seen many extentsion cords that are gray (we use them for holiday lights) and we got them from The Home Depot in Ohio. I’m guessing if there’s gray that there’s also black?

I had a tree chandelier! Except we used candles. I’ll have to see if I can find a pic.
They are darling, you have good taste 😉

I don’t have any advice regarding the “how to” but that looks amazing! Good luck!

My best friend got married in October and they hung a chandelier like this from the tree they got married under…it was stunning. She bought the chandelier from Home Depot and returned it after the big day! The venue was an outdoor courtyard, and so they were somehow able to wind the cord through the tree and used a clip to hang it over their ceremony spot….if your venue doesn’t allow anything to hang from trees though, I’m not really sure what else you could use 🙁

@Mrs. Meowerson: you can even get that chandelier from saveoncrafts but instead of real candles you can use LED battery operated ones so that they won’t be a fire hazard, no one will worry about lighting them , and they wont melt wax intot he chandelier–in case you want to sell them after the wedding or reuse them for another event.

Wow…that is pretty!! I’m not really sure how you would go about doing that either. Maybe some chandeliers but use some candles somehow?? I know I have been seeing alot of similar things like this in all the wedding blogs I read! There was one post where a Bride used mason jars with candles in them & they were hanging from the trees just like that & it looked awesome! Hope you figure something out b/c that looks so pretty!!! 🙂
