Roundup: Indoor Wedding Lighting Inspiration

One great thing about indoor venues is how easy it can be to transform the space with the help of some creative lighting design. From simple to complex, the sky is the limit when it comes to wedding lighting!

More often than not, couples are looking for their special day to exude romance while capturing their personalities. There are so many ways to create a fully personalized and intimate celebration for every couple, no matter the parameters of the venue.

Nothing fits a romantic ceremony better than candles – and lots of them! Lining the aisle not only adds a warm glow to the space, but it also creates quite a gorgeous walkway for the bride. A simple crystal chandelier at the end of the aisle is a great addition to round out the design.

Light up the sweetheart table and head tables with funky Edison bulb fixtures for a unique and dynamic feel. Adding garlands of greenery is a bonus!

Edison bulbs aren’t just for the sweetheart table, though – decorate them with bold floral arrangements and they make for a great focal point in the center of the space! We love how well this piece paired with the LED lights strung along the ceiling.

If your clients are looking for an extra personal touch, a custom monogram wash is just the answer. This is a great choice if your client already has a monogram in place, but a standard one does just fine as well!

Chandeliers don’t just come in one shape or size—they are entirely customizable! Grand fixtures are a great choice for the dance floor, as it brings everyone’s attention to the space—perfect for getting everyone on their feet.

Mixing and matching is always a popular choice – whether it’s the bridesmaids’ dresses or the lighting fixtures! Bringing together candles, chandeliers and LED string lights is a wonderful way to create a magical and whimsical atmosphere in any indoor space.

Get an idea of your clients’ vision and discuss the different types of lighting fixtures they can incorporate into their special day. The opportunities are endless, so don’t hesitate to get creative!
