I am having an outdoor wedding in my neighborhood park from 3:30- maybe 9 PM mid September of this year. The tents I am renting are 2 30×30 tents right next to each other. Since it’ll be light outside for the majority of the reception, I don’t know if I should put white christmas string lights on the ceiling of the tent(s). Opinions? Would that look dumb since 98% of the reception will be during daylight hours? If I do go with that, how many boxes of lights would I need?? I found a set of 100 on Amazon but imagine I would need quite a few?

Maybe you could do battery operated lantern lights like this instead….
They are bigger so you would likely need less to make it look “full” than the straight Christmas lights, they have a variety of colors so you could order to match your wedding colors then mix and match on each string, and because the lanterns have a colored globe they are interesting even during the daylight hours but still will give you a soft glow at nights. I think either way it would look great though.

You mean TWINKLE LIGHTS! ☺️ Haha. Lights are so romantic so I say yes! Love the previous poster’s idea of a more substantial light.

I would have said yes if the bulk of your event was during the evening. We have the same start and end time but sunset around here isn’t until 715 ish. The purpose of having lights, to me anyway, is they look really pretty in the dark. So paying to have them on maybe like an hour or two seems unnecessary. And what if people leave early? Love the idea just not the time.
