How-To: Lighting The *Affordable* Way


Uplighting. String lights. Candles. When candelabras for every table are tough to come by, we suggest opting for one of these three budget-friendly options to light up your event. With these affordable lighting options, adding a flicker of glow to your wedding reception or event has never been as easy.


The first step to bringing life to a drab room is uplighting the perimeter of the room. Highlight the head table, tall architecture, or simply the room’s outer walls with LED lights that beam upwards from the floor. You can easily stop there and just use uplights to achieve a big impact in your space.

Candle Light

If your venue allows, flickering candlelight is an attractive, romantic option. Glass jars with simple tea lights in them or taper candles can add elegance or flair to your centerpieces and decor.

Does your venue have fire restrictions? Flameless, flickering candles will give you the same effect if an open flame is not permitted. Amazon sells packs of affordable flameless, flickering, tea lights like these that you can add to votives. If the votives are not transparent, many won’t even realize the candles are fake! And when looking at the photos, who would know!? 🙂

String Lights

Create beautiful evening scenery with string lights, which pair perfectly with an outdoor wedding. Clear bulbs dangling around the space create help distinguish which area the party should be mingling in. There are options in Tulsa like Party Perfect Rental and Integrity Lighting that offer a variety of string lights and other affordable lighting options.
