Lighting can be one of the most important components to your destination wedding design. Many couples underestimate how simple lighting can set a tone for an event, especially at a reception. I never suggest handling lighting yourself, you really should work with an event designer or lighting company to make sure it’s handled properly. However, there is a great product I’ve just discovered if you’re looking for a simple, cost effective solution you can actually install yourself.

I recently received a sample of this incredible product to use. Since it was close to the holidays, they sent a green light for me to try. Installation was a snap. Simply plug it in, stake it in the ground and you’ve got ambiance! The thousands of twinkling lights can transform up to 900 square feet of space and replace countless strands of traditional string lights. Coming in at a price of $199 for the standard BlissLights Spright (colors come in green, red or blue), it’s not only a financial bargain, but will also save you hours of labor compared to hanging wired lights.
