Enjoying outdoor space during your wedding celebrations can be essential if you are restricted on indoor space or if you just want to take advantage of the fair weather. One of the most effective methods of creating instant atmosphere in a space is to drop the lights low and let the glow of a few candles set the tone however naked candles aren’t exactly ideal for outdoor use; one gust of wind and Aunt Doris’ blue rinse is up in smoke, not to mention the cost of stock piling pretty lanterns to avoid the spontaneous combustion of poor Aunt Doris. At the top of the list of super effective alternatives for outdoor spaces are strung fairy lights. And by fairy lights I mean delicate white rather than the flashing multi-coloured fire hazard variety that graced Christmas trees all over the land in the 80s. Strung thoughtfully, they are unbelievable effective at making an open space feel intimate and romantic whether that be for your guests to enjoy a meal under the stars (if you’re lucky enough to have good weather) or a jostling dance floor once the formalities of the day are completed. Just one caveat – make sure you get outdoor appropriate lights in case of an unforeseen shower!
