Wedding Reception Lights

 


Wedding reception lighting and wedding party decoration is a key factor in setting the atmosphere for your wedding day. Christmas Direct LED lighting is extremely versatile and can be used to create impressive displays both indoors and outdoors.

There is nothing more romantic on your wedding day than dancing for the first time as man and wife beneath a canopy of twinkling fairy lights. LED Curtain Lights and LED String Lights are perfect for creating this look and are easy to install. Our connectable LED system allows many sets to be linked together and powered from one plug socket.

A very popular idea for wedding receptions is to create a starcloth backdrop effect behind the top table or indeed all the way around your function space. Used along with voile or delicate material our LED Curtain lights or LED Icicle Lights can be used to produce this striking look for both traditional wedding venues and more contemporary spaces.

Rustic and vintage style weddings look breathtaking when adorned with fairy lights of all shapes and sizes. Wooden beams and pillars can be wrapped with warm white or ice white string lights, or even blue or pink could be used to add vibrancy. Our battery powered led lights are perfect decorations for small pot plants or topiary trees and look eye catching when used to fill jam jars. Curtain Lights and Icicle lights can be hung in and around all areas to add ambience and complete your wedding lighting design.

 

Wedding Marquee Lights

 


Marquee Weddings are hugely popular and give great scope for a bride and groom to showcase their own style with their wedding decorations and wedding lighting.

The structure of a marquee allows a blank canvas for effortless lighting design. Marquee interiors can look magical when adorned with strings of fairy lights and sections of curtain and icicle lights. Most marquees will be lined and as LED lights produce no heat they are perfect for using to decorate your wedding marquee.

As our fairy string lights are connectable they are be used in long lengths to drape and swathe the ceiling of your marquee to crate either a canopy effect or chandelier look. Our lights are made to a high standard of durability and quality and can cope with lots of winding, wrapping, twisting and hanging.

The centre poles of a marquee can easily be wrapped in string lights or our battery powered lights, perfect if there is no plug socket nearby. Lasting for up to 60 hours on one set of AA batteries our battery fairy lights are a bride’s best friend when it comes to wedding lighting ideas.

Marquees also look beautiful when decorated on the outside. Whether a summer garden wedding or a winter wonderland wedding day, Christmas Directs outdoor wedding lights range has something for all wedding themes.

The entrance of a marquee or indeed any wedding venue can be dressed with curtain or icicle lights to create a grand welcome for your guests. Bay trees and topiary trees look fantastic when strung with battery powered fairy lights and are the perfect addition to your entrance way. LED lights are available in a variety of colours to match all wedding decorations.

String lights lining the apex of a wedding marquee can add understated glamour to a traditional wedding day while curtain lights can create a striking effect for a more contemporary wedding celebration.

The possibilities for wedding marquee decoration are endless when lighting your marquee with Christmas Direct LED products.

 

Wedding Ceremony Lighting

 


Lighting can help really set the mood for your wedding ceremony. Whether you are having an intimate garden wedding or traditional church ceremony lighting can make all the difference to the ambience created.

Subtle lighting effects can be created by using battery lights at the end of church pews wrapped in floral displays or to line the aisle. Floral pedestal arrangements can benefit massively from a few sparkling fairy lights scattered in and around the foliage.

String lights are the perfect choice for winding around banisters and pillars. Use along with light material to encourage a romantic atmosphere or drape from ceilings in swags to generate extra sparkle.

Many couples choose to have outdoor weddings in unique and unusual settings. A focal point for the ceremony is often required and decorative archways or garden pergolas are often used. Battery operated wedding fairy lights are yet again a savior for decorating these important areas and look stunning when combined with garlands and flowers.

The decoration of the outside space of a wedding venue can be as important as the inside to many couples. Our outdoor LED curtain lights and icicle lights can be used to cover huge areas and are an eye catching spectacle when set to flash and twinkle. Patios and decking can be strung with colorful fairy lights and trees and bushes look magical when sparkling at sunset.

 

Wedding Decorations

 


Planning your wedding decorations and coming up with ideas for your wedding reception can be a daunting task. Our range of battery powered lights, artificial foliage, wreaths, garlands and trees can help in the design process of creating your perfect wedding theme.

Our wreaths and garlands are very popular wedding decorations. Decorated with lights or flowers they create lovely ornaments and can be colour co-ordinated with any wedding colour theme.

Our range of decorative foliage also lends itself well for use in decorating your church or ceremony venue. Although predominantly of a Christmas nature our range proves popular with brides throughout the year. Artificial Mistletoe is a best seller and our holly and poinsettia bunches can be split for use in multiple displays.

Battery powered fairy lights have an infinite number of uses. Using them to frame your table plan is a unique idea. They are perfect for adding attraction to your wedding cake and can be used easily to line the top table.

If you are having a winter wonderland themed wedding then what better than a bevy of beautifully decorated artificial Christmas trees to create a magical wintery atmosphere. Decorations and lights can be coloured to tie in with your overall colour scheme. We also offer tree hire as an option.

 

Wedding Table Centres

 


Wedding table centrepieces and wedding table names can really help stamp your personality on your wedding reception. Whatever your style we have table centre ideas to help set the tone of your special day.

A simple and effective idea that we have seen a lot of brides use is to place one of our smaller 12inch wreaths flat in the centre of the table with a large church candle in the middle of it. A beautiful, budget friendly decoration which takes seconds to display.

Our battery operated fairy lights are also a popular choice for use in many table centrepieces. Available in short lengths of 1m and 2m they are perfect for using wound within in fishbowls or vases and can add lovely sparkle to floral arrangements.

Another simple effect created by many wedding designers and inspired brides is to use battery fairy lights within swags of material to line the front of the top table, buffet and cake table also. A benefit of LED lights is that they give off no heat so are perfect for using with material.

If by chance a winter wonderland or Christmas inspired wedding is in your plans our mini basket trees are the ideal accessory for your table centrepieces or table arrangements. At 2ft high they are not too big and look gorgeous when strung with little led fairy lights.

Our glass baubles are beautiful when used in vases with flowers and can be a lovely favour for your female guests. Many of clients have written the name of the bride and groom on the baubles with glass pens and they effect is fabulous.
