- Wedding: August 2011
I’m hoping someone may have some good advice for me on wedding lighting. Our reception will be outdoors in a wide open field without any nearby trees or buildings to hang lights from and we are going without a tent (chance of rain is very, very little in California this time of year). I’m thinking of making candle lanterns on the tables out of mason jars but I think I’ll need a bit more light once the sun goes down. Is my only option creating an elaborate structure to hang lights off of? (maybe poles wedged into the ground)? Will fairy lights be bright enough or should I go for the globe cafe style lights?
The reception will start early — around 4:30, with sunset at 8 — so we won’t have all that long to show off whatever lighting we come up with but I’m afraid of the party ending in darknesss!
thanks for your help!
