17 Amazing Wedding Marquee Lights

Get ready to light up your wedding in the most memorable way possible! Hi loves, Emma here and I am positively loving this trend. Marquee lights have been in the wedding spotlight for awhile now, but this is a trend we don’t see going by the wayside anytime soon.

You can use marquee lights in so many interesting ways: light up your bar with a fun cocktails sign or use it to illuminate your wedding date.

I especially love the use of marquee lights to deck out your ceremony space, like this…

And these signs are pretty amazing, too. Hello, coffee bar sign. It’s perfect for your coffee themed wedding.

Add marquee lights to your barn wedding decor, like this.

Here are some additional lovely lights to inspire you.

Make your own wedding marquee lights

We spotted this A M A Z I N G do it yourself project over at Evan & Katelyn for making your own wedding marquee lights. They used ‘LOVE’ as their sign, but you can customize this project in anything you choose. Only have patience for one letter? Just make one for your new last name. Want one for each of you? Make two, one with your initial and one with your love’s. Want to go all out? J U S T M A R R I E D or T H E B E S T D A Y E V E R would take awhile, but more power to ya.

They made their own for their big day… and here’s the finished product, too!

Oh, and this totally reminds me of A + I. One of our cats would totally photobomb our DIY photo, I just know it.
