Inspired by Light Bulbs

How rad would those lightbulbs hanging above be for a ceremony backdrop?!! I love that with light you can easily change a so-so room into a gorgeous room. This post is to help inspire you with lightbulbs for your wedding day!

The chandeliers below with rope + lightbulbs were seen in this beautiful wedding I featured.

If you love lightbulbs and are planning to get married in New York City, I highly recommend checking out the Gramercy Park Hotel as your venue! Check out that awesome lightbulb ceiling!! Cocktail hour could take place in that room followed by dinner outside under string lights as seen in this wedding below photographed by KT Merry.

Or maybe lightbulbs are used in a totally different way! Love the lightbulbs in the birdcage, bulbs in wood + stone from Anzfer Farms and lightbulbs in a dome. There are even lots of cute DIYs out there including this heart lightbulb DIY, terrarium place cards DIY, and more terrarium light bulbs DIY.

Looking for the vintage style light bulbs? I had a reader request on where to find these the cheapest. Well, the cheapest we found was at your local Lowe’s! $8 for a bulb (the hubby and I actually bought a few of these for a cool chandelier we built for our patio!). If there aren’t any Lowe’s near you, you can find them online here and here (although both of those are around $13/bulb).

Anyone planning to incorporate lights in a new and different way? Or just strings of lights? Lights will never go out of style! :)
