Hey, I’m posting a lot before I go to work. I’m having a wedding in a clearing in the woods.
Would torches look cheesy? I want my guests to walk down a trail to the clearing and have some lighting the trail. I don’t want it to look too Legend of Zelda or anything 🙂 The ceremony would be late afternoon in August.
What about white christmas lights at the reception? (Indoors)
Be honest bees, I can take it 🙂

i would stay away from christmas lights – do cafe lights instead, ala the picture below.

my venue has white christmas lights outside on one of their trees all year long, it was very pretty! and my sil had tourches to line their aisle, also very pretty. she used candles that keep the bugs away so they worked double duty.

Having been to a wedding in a clearing in the woods, I would be greatly in favor of the torches. The path we were supposed to go down was long and not well marked. There were ushers but they couldn’t get back in time for all of the groups, and a few people actually got lost.
Also, make sure the ground on the path is somewhat level and not too squishy if you can. My friend twisted her ankle and my heels got stuck every other step. That, or be sure to warn everyone about where they’re going – we got no warning that there would be a short hike through the woods!
That being said, it was a beautiful ceremony. 🙂
I’m not a big fan of Christmas lights as decor, but it depends on the venue. We actually might use them at ours, despite my reservations, but it will depend on how they look after we put them up. FI loves them – he had them all over his house before I moved it.

Phishgirl- I love those lights. Those are just what I’m picturing. I want them to look ethereal and magical but not scream Target clearnace in January (which is when I might buy them.)
I think I’ll try the torches. The path is very wide and flat, thank goodness. There’s some elderly relatives, so we may be decking out a golfcart to give rides.
Thanks for the feedback ladies. I’ll go for the gold.
