Lighting in your tent

When choosing the overall aesthetic of your tent or venue, your lighting decisions play an important part. The lighting should tie in and compliment the feel you are striving to have. Whether it is rustic, casual, modern or glam, there are SO many lovely options out there these days. While rental companies may only have a select inventory, most often they will special order for you. You can also purchase the lighting yourself, ship to your designer or rental company and have them hang and then choose to keep the fixture or resell. Just be sure that the proper electrical items are in tact and do-able for the tent or venue. Anyone that knows me, knows I love lighting and linens and below are some fun ideas for inspiration!

Beachview Tent Rentals twig balls done in a large cluster over the dance floor! One of our favorites we did for my best friend's wedding!
Isn't this gorgeous?! We just had this done along with Sea Island's floral team for a wedding in March. It resembles a terrarium and brought the starkness of those wrought iron chandeliers down and softened the room up. LOVE!
This was for Kate's wedding and we love the overall color scheme! It's a dome shade over a traditional crystal chandelier done in a turquoise fabric to compliment the linens. So glam!

Lots of string lighting in this clear top tent but notice the wrought iron chandeliers? They are wrapped in ivy and had tiny little faux birds on them. Such a sweet little touch! This was one of our 1st weddings at Ford Plantation!

A mini little vintage crystal chandelier adds just a nice detail to the large tent. There were several hung in Anne's dining tent to play off of the string lighting and clear top tent over her dance floor!

Anne's clear top tent with platinum swags over her dancing area.

Resembles driftwood at the beach!

Love playing with oysters in decor!

Would love to hang this little star over a bar and lounge area!

A little play off of a nautical feel with wood and rope makes a nice touch!

This is so sweet and while there is a lot going on in the tent, it all just works so nicely together! What an impact when you walk in!

You know I love a chevron pattern! Would be great over dining tables!

Would love to do these shades over a dining table grouping in a tent! Anyone up for it? I always love seagrass and jute textures!

Modern lighting for a bar?!

Using these over long dining tables for a Nov. wedding!

Mindy Weiss of course! So gorgeous!

Who doesn't love a little bling hanging from a tree?

Such a focal point! I would love to have seen this once the sun went down. That's the only thing about clear tents I don't like. They aren't as gorgeous until it's dark!

Why have 1 chandelier when you can have like 15?!

Makes me want to do this in a bar or lounge tent! LOVE the black/white stripe canopy!

Hung all along the tent with the fabric and draping. So elegant!

Chandelier in a birdcage. Why not? This is from Restoration Hardware and would definitely be one of those to purchase and then keep for your home!

Inspired from this look for a fall wedding at the Ford!

Mini chandeliers hung in beams of a patio over lounge setting. So chic!

I mean dang! That just screams drama and I definitely want to be sitting at that table!
