    Start your Christmas wedding planning now with Festive Lights

    The popularity of Christmas proposals means that couples should perhaps start wedding planning now!  Recent research by an online lighting company shows that Christmas and New Year are one of the most popular times of year for engagements. This means to secure the venue you want, you need to get planning as soon as possible. We are here today to help you start your Christmas wedding planning now with Festive Lights.

    Established in 1999, Festive Lights is a lighting specialist with a product portfolio spanning indoor, outdoor, functional and decorative products. Predominantly an online retailer, the Lancashire-based company also have a trade showroom and warehousing facilities in Wigan.

    To understand more about how couples plan their weddings, Festive Lights ran a survey of 1009 people in the UK. They asked those who were engaged, or were married, when the proposal had happened and whether it was on a special occasion. This revealed that the majority of proposals happen around Christmas. 33% of people said they had put a ring on it around Christmas Day and New Year. The festive period was more popular for proposals than birthdays (22%) and more than twice as popular as Valentine’s Day (15%). As a result, January sees a spike in couples beginning to plan their weddings.

    As you know, that usually means A LOT of work!

    Here are Festive Lights’ top tips on how to get a head start on your wedding:

    Book early

    The more you do at the beginning, the less stressful it will be as you reach the last few months’ approach. Securing the venue, photographer and florist are the 3 main things you need to get checked off your list, then you can move on to the finer details.

    Lock down a theme

    Festive Lights recommends creating a wedding plan. You can choose a general idea of the theme and atmosphere you want to have when you have booked your venue, after this, you can start to gather materials towards that theme as early as possible.

    Use lighting to your advantage

    When lighting is done correctly, it can create an atmosphere all on its own without the need for other expensive decorations. As day moves into night, you can transform a room, marquee or tipi into a totally different environment with lighting. In summer, create exquisite outdoor party areas to make the most of long summer nights. In winter, create cosy vibes inside that keep guests feeling warm.

    Festoon Lighting

    Ideal for every venue, festoon lighting can be used indoors and outdoors to brighten, enhance features and create a slightly retro or rustic ambience. The beauty of festoon lighting is that it is completely flexible and can fit any style of décor.

    Wrap them around trees and bushes, use them to line pathways and entrances. you can string them around the interior of a marquee. However you choose to use festoon lighting, it’s a budget friendly way to illuminate and decorate.

    Fairy lights

    For a romantic atmosphere like no other, Festive Lights recommends using fairy lights. Not only can these be strung around the venue to decorate, they can also be used more creatively too:

    ·         Use fairy lights as a centrepiece by gathering them in a glass vase.

    ·         Drape them amongst your greenery.

    ·         Create a fairy light canopy within a marquee, or under stars for an outdoor celebration.

    ·         Highlight your seating plan with a frame of fairy lights.

    Details

    The lighting details are how you really nail down the ambience of your wedding. These additional features will make sure your celebration really stands out from the rest:

    ·         Make a statement with LED circus letters of your initials on your top table – these can be purchased or even DIYed using fairy lights.

    ·         Candles flickering as centrepieces on your table will help guests feel relaxed and will enhance the romantic atmosphere. Check with your venue about having open flames, but LED battery operated candles will have the same effect with more peace of mind.

    ·         Twig lighting can be an effective way to add more detail whilst still keeping the look natural and pretty.
