Has anyone used the outdoor Christmas lights for decoration and lighting for their reception? And if so, do you have pictures? I wanted to use the “napa outdoor lights” but they are really expensive, I just wondered had anyone used regular, cheap, (white not colored) Christmas lights.

The clear Christmas lights would look great! Most people are getting rid of them in favor of LED’s so you likely could find them free on craigslist.

Totally! I didn’t even think of that, thanks! I wonder though, are the LEDs dimmer?

I am totally in love with the cafe lights that you have the first picture of. I’ve been going back and forth between wanting to use them over the dance floor in our barn-type venue, or if I’m going ot hang chinese lanterns…

I am using both the lanterns and the cafe lights, which i found @ Big Lots for CHEAP!

@jerrbear585: Did you find the cafe lights at Big Lots? I may need to start searching all the ones nearby! I love the look of the cafe lights and if I do a tent, I definitely want some!
@Mrs.tobe: What is your color scheme? I already have some orange (medium and small size) Chinese lanterns that you could borrow since we are near each other. Also, as you know, I am unsure of my reception venue but if I end up with a tent or similar site, maybe we could split the cost of cafe lights?

@kentuckygirl: Oh splitting the cost would be fabulous! My colors don’t include orange unfortunately 🙁
But I have a friend who is going to let me use the crap load of ivory ones she has. So it’s all good.
