Wedding Reception Lighting: Cable & Cotton | Competition

And the winner is *drum roll please* No. 4 Catherine! Congratulations and thanks to everyone who entered.

A huge part of your wedding styling (in my opinion) is about setting the right mood and ambiance. I’m a big believer that the right lighting is key to creating those pretty, intimate and romantic (and not to mention, fun) moments! Get your lighting right and it just creates the perfect feeling right?

I’ve long been a fan of these Cable and Cotton, string lights. They look super cute draped over your tables as centerpieces…

    Would these work if I hung them in branches in a tree? Picture two bridesmaids dressed in chocolate brown dresses, sitting on hay bales around a fire pit while they eat a cone of chips and sausage…
    My colour scheme is chocolate brown, ivory and gold and the theme is beer festival/family fete so it’s outside on a cricket pitch (reception in a tipi).

    Ooh these are the lights I have been wanting to have at our 3 day festival wedding! We are getting married beneath a big oak tree and behind is our woodland grotto decorated with inspiring poems & readings hung from the trees, a sofa, a little drinkiboo & homemade cupcake for guests and strings of lanterns around the tables and trees (how perfect would these be?!?). It is also the spot for a late night bonfire later on, illuminated by soft lanterns and firelight :) The reception is then in an old stripy tent decorated in a sort of bollywood meets the Great British Bakeoff type way with bright colours and table runners I’m making from old sari fabric. Loads of bright colour, streamers and bright multicoloured strings of lanterns would make it perfect. We also wanted to drape some around the old guitar case that we are using for the Cards/guestbook box. Lanterns galore!

Love your site by the way! Xx

    I love these lights and they would be perfect for decorating the tables in our marquee for our evening reception which is something I have been deliberating over for sometime now!

    We are mixing vintage with modern for our wedding. We are having a very small wedding with just 32 guests in the Yorkshire Dales. This part of our wedding will be focusing on the vintage part of our wedding. We have hired a marquee for the evening which will be in the grounds of our wedding venue. Our vision for the marquee is fun, quirky with a vintage twist.

    We have multi coloured bunting lining the marquee, these lights would compliment the colourful bunting if they are used to dress the table.

    Our wedding is multi coloured. My bridesmaid is in navy blue, however my bunting and flowers are a combination of blue, yellow, pinks and cream. Therefore my perfect colour combination for the cable cotton lights would be blue, yellow and pink! They are so unique and would provide the fun colourful aspect we are looking for!

    Our wedding is a relaxed barn wedding filled with muted pastel colors of lilac, mint, peach and stone gray. It’ll be playful and casual in nature (fullsize Jenga game in the outdoor courtyard for guests to sign each wood block at a guestbook, cake pinana instead of a traditional “cutting”, etc. The barn has high vaulted ceilings so I can’t wait to drape these beautiful lights from the ceilings and slung over the heads of the guests!

        Thank you! We are getting married 6/14/14 so we have some time but I’m already decorating :) I’m also folding 1,000 origami cranes so I had to pick my colors and my decor plan early in order to have time for this, hah: http://www.origamihara.com/origamihara_webeasy_site_002.htm

          Oh that’s fab that you have loads of time to plan everything! So how good are your origami skills? I made a batch for a wedding fair I exhibited at and I’ve got to say I had to practice to get the knack! I love that a 1000 cranes means 100 year of good luck XxX So sweet!

          • Heather Wade

            Love it! What did you do with yours at the fair? Were they hanging or just on tables?

          • Sonia

            I had stands and just dotted them around. I do think they look amazing as a hanging backdrop or even just strands hanging around the venue or from trees etc XxX I’m Soooo excited for you :))

    I adore these lights and am so glad I have just come across them (for the first time despite months of wedding planning and blog surfing) – thank you wantthatwedding! I have been deliberating over lighting options for the big day and haven’t settled on anything yet – these are colourful but stylish and subtle too and would work fantastically well I think.

    Our wedding this summer is in a country house hotel – we are aiming for a relaxed and elegant feel with lots of little personal touches, so that the whole experience is about us and meaningful to our guests. We have a not too strict “shades of teal” colour scheme, and I think a mix of your prussian blue, turquoise and pale blue would look awesome!

    I love these! We are having our wedding in a marquee at my parents and I’m looking for ways to add some colour to the marquee itself – these would be perfect. Our colour scheme is yellow and grey. My parents are doing loads to make their garden look nice. Can these be used outside? Just thinking that it might be good to have lighting in the garden so all their effort can still be seen when it gets dark! Nicola x

    My perfect colours would be a dark pink fuscia shade with purple; the pink to coordinate with my bridesmaids & the purple as that’s the colours of the boys’ cravats & buttonholes (couldn’t convince the boys to accessorise with pink!)

    We are having our reception in an old tin chapel built in 1883. It’s beautifully simple with white washed walls, wooden floors and an exposed beam ceiling set in the middle of the exquisite Sussex countryside. 

    Our venue allows us to make our mark and through research and inspiration we have often wondered into the Brighton Cable and Cotton store and feel that a selection of the pastel shades; pure white, ivory, pale pink and dusty rose and lace bunting would set off our venue perfectly!

    Loving the lights they would fit in perfectly wth our vintage country festival style wedding. We have hired wedding teepees and will be filling them with mixed colour rustc flowers and bunting and so having the lights in plain cream would perfectly complement the business of the other colours and add a fun warming glow to the tables.

    Our wedding is eclectic! We refuse to be tied down to a theme. We are just choosing a load of stuff we like and so it may look like a couple of kids organised it! If we were to win we would like a string of pastel lights like a sweetie necklace – yum! Or possibly some brights.. Oh decisions!
