    I actually had the opposite problem–we were in a restored barn so our ceilings would be dark and we had a bunch of white-stringed lights. I was worried the white would stand out against the dark ceiling. To be honest, I don’t think anyone noticed or cared. The ambiance of the glowing lights will attract the eye to the light source, not the wiring. I didn’t even notice the day of, and it is not noticeable at all in pictures as the background is blurred (which looks great!).

    I’m not sure how the opposite will look, but I think it probably will be fine, especially if your reception is later on in the evening and things will be kind of dim anyway. I say, save your money!
