Feature Friday: Cafe Lights

I couldn’t decide whether to call this post a Feature Friday or a Trend Report… because these sweet lights are such a popular item this year! Of course we have the traditional twinkle lights, but If I’m to be honest- I’ve fallen hard for these cafe lights! The globe lights, the spacing, the warm glow… I’m sure you’ll see why. here’s nine images that I can almost guarantee will have you swooning for them- just like me.

Inspiration for Cafe Lights at Weddings

ONE: Swoon! We’re off to a good start, aren’t we! The simplicity of this ceremony decor is striking. We love the unexpected element of the cafe lights hung vertically- what an affordable (but big impact) decor!

TWO: If you are lucky enough to have trees surrounding your outdoor wedding- cafe lights are the perfect way to light your event! We adore how naturally these fit into the setting for this real wedding.

THREE: Mmmkay, can we talk about this for a minute? I love everything about it. The simple draped archway, joyful bunting, the layered rugs (oh, yes!), and the cafe lights hung vertically from the ceiling? It’s all so clever and it comes together perfectly!

FOUR: We do this set-up in one form or another all the time, cafe lights hung against the ceiling as alternate lighting (who wants fluorescents!). And this is the reason why- you can’t go wrong! It’s beautiful every time.

FIVE: A lovely bride  used our cafe lights to dress up a dark stage area for their wedding last summer. The casual look of the design cast such a warm glow on guests- talk about mood lighting!

SIX: When I dream about outdoor weddings strung with bistro lights… this is what I dream.

SEVEN: This white and bright venue is perfect for an intimate wedding, we are so inspired by how good the cafe lights look in the daylight.

EIGHT: How cute are they scalloped on a wall? This photo is so simple, but really this style would look excellent in almost setting.

NINE: Talk about a big impact! We love that this couple didn’t cover up the gorgeous brick behind their head table, but featured it with cafe lights strung in one giant swag!

So what do you think- we got you on the cafe light train, didn’t we? What’s your favourite inspiration shot? I’m having such a hard time deciding today! I think I’ll have to go with number one… but seven… and nine are close second(s)!
