Are you opting for an outdoor wedding with a huge tent for your reception? Then you’ll definitely want a way to spice up those drab white and canvas ceilings and walls. One of the trends we’re seeing in Chicago area weddings are glamorous tent lighting options–like crystal or black metal chandeliers and hanging vintage Edison bulbs–along with all types of serene and blinged out lounge areas. The use of vintage chairs, tables and accessories can provide a vibe to your day that will make it unique and memorable.
White light strands (also called twinkle lights) always have a sweet impact. We love how they can make any room sparkle. And you can’t beat the price. What about some chinese lanterns dangling from the ceiling in varying shapes, sizes and colors? If you don’t like plain, add some of your floral picks to the chandeliers.
You’ll want to provide your guests a few spaces to rest their tired feet from kicking up their heels. This lounge area has a welcoming ambiance from the fluffy pillows to the cushioned ottomans–a welcoming couch and warm candle lighting. You might have to wake someone up if they get too comfy.
Don’t forget about providing some cozy areas outside your reception tent. If the weather is kind to you, your guests will want some fresh air. Simple seating like this wooden bench on a summer wedding day is a quaint spot to sit for a while.
Even though this picture looks like it may have been from an small, intimate ceremony, we’re loving these modern white chairs and red and white pillows. Scatter these modern chairs throughout your reception area (inside and out) and conversation is sure to spark. Provide some bedazzled citronella candles for lighting as the sun sets and they may never want to leave.
