The wedding decor market is always booming with fresh, new elements and decor ideas, but none of it actually works without the basic lighting and use of fabrics. But lights and fabrics don’t have to be the typical style any more! You can actually use them in so many more awesome ways that make a huge impact. Check out these fun, new ideas for wedding decor with lights and fabric.

1. String it across

Gone are the days when fabric was only used to put up a shamiana. A refreshing, new way is to just string pretty, long lengths of fabric across the wedding venue. We love how Devika Narain has used earthy shades and strung it across the venue from tree to tree. The little bulbs add an extra charm.

2. Chandeliers are gorge!

Chandeliers and shimmer fabrics are just what you need to add the glam factor to your cocktail or reception night. Wedding lighting is no more limited to just those big, heavy spotlights in different colours. Chandeliers are making a huge entry into the shaadi decor scene and we are so not complaining!

3. Floral wonderness

This is the cutest way to pretty up your food counters! If you don’t like those over-the-top tents, then just use some floral fabric as the backdrop for your food counters. For a garden-themed engagement party, this idea is a must do!

4. Light up with bulbs

Forget fairy lights, bulbs are the all new rage! And there are just so many ways to use them in your wedding decor. We particularly like how this bar is done up with flower strings and hanging bulbs. The yellow lighting looks great in pictures and we never thought bulbs could looks this stunning!

Now this is one innovative setup! Save yours guests from the harsh sun without putting up those old-style tents. We love the combination of printed and coloured fabrics and the super-fun and cute shape of the shed. Quite a show stealer this one!

6. Candles are a must

Lighting a hundred candles is yet another awesome way to add a spark of light to your venue. A candle wall for an engagement ceremony is simple yet classy and is sure to leave your guests mesmerized. The soft light of candles is also ideal to get those dreamy romantic pictures!

7. The Arab connection

Lanterns are the best if you’re having an Arabic-themed sangeet or mehendi night. The light flows beautifully out of the jaali design and it sure makes your decor look extremely royal. Long, flowy drapes in purple and red are an ideal combination.
