Night Wedding Ideas

Night Wedding Ideas

A night wedding is an unusual twist on your normal wedding timeline. And these are the kind of unique ideas we love. Break the mould and have your cocktails before your ceremony, or forego them altogether and simply have your guests arrive at sunset! What could be more beautiful than exchanging your vows as the sun goes down, and walking down the aisle to sparklers or lanterns instead of confetti?

While a night wedding might not be for every bride, it’s certainly a lovely non-conventional wedding idea we love!

Night Wedding Ceremonies

If you’re thinking of having a night wedding, instead of a daytime wedding ceremony, there are lots of beautiful ways you can create an incredibly breathtaking ceremony setting. Because it will be getting darker (or be completely dark, depending on your timeline) you can use amazing lighting to create atmosphere and add to your decor.

We love the use of luminary lantern bags along night wedding pathways, placing candlelit mason jars along the aisle, or having illuminated paper lanterns above your wedding arch. There are lots of lovely lighting options for night weddings, and creative ways you can make an exceptional ceremony setting!

Night Wedding Unique Lighting

If you’re looking for something special to add to your night wedding, we’ve got a few unique ideas we think you’ll love!

Light up an outside dance floor or reception area with upside down umbrella lights, or get fairy berries and place them in the garden around your venue! Fairy berries are new in South Africa, and create a gently fading glowing light. They look like little fireflies for a magical touch to your wedding night!

Fairy lights are always beautiful, and look amazing wrapped around a giant tree! You can also use them behind draping to create a special backdrop. Contemporary Brides & Grooms are opting for exposed lightbulb strings across their reception venue, see our inspiration for night wedding lighting ideas below!
