@napabridekelsey: I love this idea!! That picture is stunning! I don’t know what your style/theme is but, you could do a mixture of those $20 ones you like & maybe something woodsy looking ones like the grapevine balls posted above, or DIY hanging mason jars or lanterns w/ candles to fill in (if it’s a humungo tree like in the pic). If your anything like me, you’ve already googled the crap outta this, but I just did a quick search & here’s what I found (good luck & please post pics after the wedding! I am also having an outdoor dinner at night & this was inspiring):

You can buy grapevine balls many places or make your own for that matter if you have access to grapevine prunings. You can also make them put of honeysuckle, jasmine or other vines.

(advantage to brown cords is that they don’t show as much):

i was going to say lanters, but they add up quickly in price as well.  We are hanging old windows with candles on top of them to the light will come through the glass overhead.  It’s really neat, but we are paying quite a bit for the florist to do that.  If you could buy the windows and do it yourself, it could be cost effective.

@napabridekelsey: How about paper star lanterns or parasols from Luna Bazaar? Or if you are into a little diy – how about bubble chandeliers? We are doing them for my friends outdoor wedding.  She is going to hang them from a huge Oak tree. Also, we will be using Christmas ornaments in gold and silver for some sparkle and hanging candle holders with LED mini lights to add light. Or there is another diy for a garden chandelier. Good luck!

You can also do floral chandeliers, or paper-made ones & string lights through them
