There’s been one lighting trend that has transcended through the past and will likely do the same into the future: exposed lighting. This includes dainty fairy lights, string lights, and even hanging candles. But when it comes to any lighting – especially exposed lighting – the key to the perfect ambiance is in the tone and simplicity. Warm-toned lighting (as opposed to cool, blue-toned lighting) helps to keep things soft and sweet. This applies to practically any wedding and theme. Neutral to warm toned lighting helps to keep the atmostphere inviting as opposed to sterile and cold, and it also keeps you from looking washed out in your wedding photos! And keep in mind that less is more – if you go too far with exposed lighting, it can look tacky. Keep things soft, sweet and simple and you’ll be able to nail this trend however you spin it!
Mix and Match
Sometimes the best centerpiece is more than just one, single focal point. Rather, making the center of your tables a mix of multiple elements. Take this example from Loren Jackson Photography: instead of one, large centerpiece, this couple took a few smaller jars and put flowers in and added the adorable black lantern as well. Not only does this give such a neat, personal touch, but it also means that your centerpieces aren't so large that people can't talk over them!
Bright Focal Points
Though floral centerpieces are always classy and sweet, changing things up can alway put that necesary personal touch on any wedding. What better way than to accent your table with a little creative lighitng? Candles are always a nice, soft touch, and there are so many different ways to play them up. From the traditional candles, stacked groups, faux lights and creative stands like these glasses, this trend is sure to take us into 2017 merry and bright.
