39 Magical String and Hanging Light Wedding Decorations and Wedding Backdrop Ideas

Twinkly lights at a wedding create all kinds of gorgeousness! You may call it girly, sparkly, even cliché and overdone, but for me, twinkle lights and weddings just go together like peanut butter and jelly or a bride and groom. 🙂
Creative lighting can help you set the ideal atmosphere for your wedding.  You’ve probably noticed more and more suspended wedding decoration out there. Why not add some glow to this romantic trend by using string or hanging lights? They are not only perfect for reception decoration, but also make stunning photo backdrops! I’ve collected some inspiration today to show you how gorgeous hanging wedding lights can be; get ready for these sparkly ideas!
