NEON MEMORIES
A bright, funky accent to your wedding, custom LED signs are trending, and a quick Etsy search provides a plethora of options. From family names to phrases like “Better together,” these signs make for memorable photos. This one illuminates a wedding planned by Revel & Flourish. Bonus: These signs can be a sweet little keepsake—maybe the perfect accent piece for your home bar.



WRITTEN IN THE STARS
If you’re looking for a luxurious addition to your big day, rethink twinkle lights. They complement any color scheme and are an easy way to make your event sparkle. For example, drape them en masse to create a shimmering tent for an indoor under-the-Milky-Way effect, shown here in a wedding by Rachelle Mazumdar of Style-Architects Weddings and Events at Machine Shop.



NEWLYWED GLOW
Another simple, striking use of twinkle lights is this minimalist ceremony installation, in a wedding by Abby Havlicek of Maven Events and Kitty Ciernia of The Neu Neu. You can opt for white light to brighten a whole room, a subtler yellow tone to create a warm, dreamy atmosphere or try another hue for a different mood—the options are endless.



MAKE A STATEMENT
Want a little drama? Leave a lasting impression with big, bold marquee letters such as these from Alpha-Lit Twin Cities. You have free rein -  combine words and phrases to fit your needs, like “Bride to be,” “Mr. & Mrs.,” and the always apt “Love.” Marquee letters can also make a great photo op at engagement shoots, wedding showers and bachelorette parties.
