    I prefer the look of string lights, but I think it depends on your venue. We will have both.

    Definitely string lights since we bought sooooo many of them at Christmas clearance to use at our wedding.

    I like the look of string lights. Our venue offered uplighting, but I wasn't a huge fan.

    LOVE string lights! And I have tons and tons of white ones, so it was something I didn鈥檛 have to purchase extra!!

    I LOVE string lights. We had round bulb ones, which you can kind of see in this photo, and it was so romantic.

    Both! I can鈥檛 hang string lights at my reception venue but I鈥檓 looking into uplighting if I can afford it. Lights bring out that wedding vibe.

    String lights. I think they're softer and more romantic. Uplighting is more glam in my opinion, which is nice, just not the look we're going for.

    I鈥檓 such a sucker for string lights! Doesn鈥檛 work with my venue, but I love it when I see it.

    The string lighting is way cooler but not something we could do at our venue.

    Oh man I'm a sucker for string lights but I think uplifting really gives it an overall aura

    We went with string lights because that's what our venue package offered.

    Our venue offers string lights and it's part of why I loved it. We also registered for some for our backyard.
