Night Wedding Ideas
1. A Candlelit Sweetheart Table.
Ah, so romantic…
2. Send lanterns into the sky.
Releasing sky lanterns are a beautiful way to kick off the start of the reception… or right before your grand exit at the end of the night. You can find white sky lanterns here.
3. Luminaries along the aisle.
4. A glowing arbor. Oceanfront view. First kiss.
5. This awesome custom neon sign with your names on it.
5. Cascading lights hanging from trees.
Now, this is a good idea for EVERY backyard and outdoor nighttime setting, wouldn’t you agree? Stealing this and putting twinkle lights on all the trees.
6. Extra long fairy twinkle lights like THIS.
Holy smokes, this looks AMAZING! By OneStepTimers.
These lights look warm and inviting for an outdoor reception table setup at night, like this one! By PerfectHoliday.
Or wrap these leaf lights around trees, branches, or overhangs that need a little extra decor. By OhPartyDays.
Indoors or outdoors, the head table looks elegant with tulle and lighting, like this style by ElectricCrowns.
7. Chandeliers. And table lanterns. And that gorgeous tide.
And, I couldn’t help tossing this one in, too. How the lighting is devised to look so effortless, I’ll never know; but this must take a lot of work to bring to fruition. At any rate, it’s gorgeous, don’t you think?
Note: Hay bales make excellent seating (and cozy blankets in baskets are a nice touch for guests in the fall).
9. Lanterns Down the Aisle Instead of Flowers
These classic stainless silver lanterns are always a popular choice! By Moonlight Weddings.
10. These Take-Home Lantern Wedding Favors
For a night wedding, give favors that double as beautiful decor and romantic lighting! These lanterns are beautiful. By Memorable Party Favors.
Or place these wine bottle lights wherever you see fit (by PurrlsPlace).
And obviously any of these mason jars filled with fairy lights EVERYWHERE! By TheFarmersWifee.
You can turn them into hanging lanterns with these cool lantern wires/hangers by TreasureAgain.
11. Sparklers + a Grand Exit
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: I love sparkler grand exits! They’re especially fitting for a night wedding. (Don’t forget to read this!)
A ‘love’ sparkler photo like this with bridesmaids is another cute idea.
12. Hanging Glass Orbs with Candles
Or these! By RevelryPartyCompany.
