Fairy Lights

Fairy lights add whimsy to centerpieces, floral arrangements and other decorative elements. The bulbs of fairy, or twinkle, lights are smaller than regular string lights and they are often powered by a battery pack. Fill hurricane glasses with fairy lights for romantic ambiance. Arrange lights within topiaries, wreaths or other floral arrangements as an accent. However you use them, be sure to check if the lights come with batteries or if they need to be charged or plugged in. Be sure to charge before the big day or have extra batteries available.

Lanterns for DIY Weddings

Metal lanterns add rustic romance to any wedding. Vintage lanterns can sometimes be found at thrift shops and can be modernized by replacing oil wells with electric candles. Modern lanterns are often battery powered or rechargeable. Lanterns can be added to centerpieces, used as aisle markers, held by the bridal party in place of bouquets, or used as part of accent lighting.

Paper lanterns come in a variety of colors and sizes. Grouped or strung separately, they are a fresh decorative alternative to pedestals and topiaries.

Party lights and projector lights are fun and playful. They can add a professional feel to your reception, especially on the dance floor. Projector lights can project images as well as interesting light patters, such as stars, clouds and snowflakes.

These basic party lights add excitement to the dancefloor with multiple colors and patterns.

Cords & Batteries

If you are creating a DIY wedding, it is important to not forget the tools and accessories that make everything work! For lighting, that means batteries, extension cords and extra bulbs. Depending on your lighting set up, plan to have these items on hand and make sure someone is assigned responsibility for them during setup, cleanup and troubleshooting.

If you are doing your wedding and reception yourself, extension cords are a must in your day of kit. 

In addition to extension cords, a power strip or two can be handy to have ready if needed. 

Batteries stop working when you least expect it. Have several in the sizes needed to prevent stress on your big day. 

Some string lights and electric candles use coin batteries. Check the packaging for the type and make sure to have some on hand for easy replacement. 

There is not much that cannot be fixed with duct tape.
