I saw pics once where someone used the tent framing…without the covering…and wrapped lights around the poles, and hung some lanterns from the poles as well.

That way you still get the outdoor feeling and beautful lighting as well.

What time will your reception be ending?  You would need a lot of fairy lights to provide adequate lighting.  Cafe lights provide a lot more light.  A less expensive option, if you need lighting but don’t have the budget for cafe lights, would be to do an area wash (lights on stands).  A couple other things to consider: Is there adequate power available or will you need a generator?  How will guests get to their cars?  You may need to light a path or parking lot as well.
