Reception Beauty Tip: Add Lights!


Mother of the Bride, want to ramp up the beauty factor at your daughter’s reception venue? String white lights—and more white lights!

Most reception venues are used for a variety of functions so you’ll need to get creative to transform yours into a wedding wonderland. And one amazing yet inexpensive way to do it is with lights. Lights turn a beautifully decorated venue into a spectacular venue. Yes, magic happens with the flip of a switch.

Strands of white lights can be used almost anywhere at your site. Add them to entryways, banisters, door frames, windows, tables, mantelpieces, and columns. Inside or outside, lights work no matter where you use them.

When you make your reception venue visit as you prepare to decorate, be sure to check out the electrical outlets available and come armed on Decorating Day with all the extension cords you will need. Most often you’ll need white cords, but if you’re decorating outside you may need green or brown. Take all details into consideration as you make preparation.

So MOB, go all out. Help your daughter make her reception site as gorgeous as it can be. Your guests will enjoy, your memories will shine, and the photos will capture it all. Yes, let there be light!
