I hear from a lot of brides they are on a strict budget and happy to take a DIY approach to styling their lighting, and that’s fine by me! You’ll find many of the lights we stock at Southern Light Events are super easy to setup and pack down and will keep your purse happy. Some lighting rigs however, do require some technical expertise; for example, almost every bride wants some kind of “canopy” at her wedding.
A canopy is a grid of lights hanging over an area, creating a ‘sky’ of light, using either fairy lights, silk lanterns or festoons. Festoons are in big demand right now, and the filament retro style carbon globes are very popular!
White cable festoon and white pendant drops are in stock with 28 different styled globes to choose from. Another stunning option that is proving popular this season is the creation of foliage chandeliers with pendant hanging Edison globes ~ just gorgeous!
Finally, we’ve had huge demand to line marquees or tents in warm fairy lights, creating a canopy as a roof (inside the tent), so pretty! If you’d like to light up your wedding or event with any of these top trending event lights, be sure to get in touch.
