Beginner September 2023

Lighting and a Walk in the Stars

Catherine, on October 18, 2022 at 4:48 PM Posted in Style and Décor 0 3

Okay ya'll. I need some help!
I'm getting married in Norwich, CT in September 2023. I have three tents for my outdoor wedding - two that are 30x30 and one that is 15x30.
So, the theme of my wedding is "light" -- what does that mean? Nighttime ceremony, candle (fake) lined isle, light wands for the guests, LED light cake topper, lanterns being carried in place of flowers etc etc -- now for my favorite (and most complicated part):
I want my tents to be DECKED in lights. Canopy-style lighting, paper lanterns, and all of these lights reflecting from the floor which will (I hope) be covered in mirrored vinyl. The effect should make the tent appear as though it is filled with fairy lights and the guests will feel like they are walking on stars.
My dilemma? I've never decorated a there a service in CT that can help me rent lights, hang them in the tent, and help me lay down the mirror vinyl?
I've added some of the photos that have inspired me. I absolutely -must- find a way to cover the floor because the tents are being set up on top of a tennis court (venue rules) and I really would prefer not looking down and seeing all that green concrete and white lines...
Please help a bride out!

    Tent rental companies often have tandem options such as draping, lighting, and dance floors. I've seen work by Stamford Tent & Events and Luminous Designs in the tristate area. I am unsure who can do a mirrored aisle, but please post pics if this works out. Best wishes, Bride!

    If you can, I’d find a tent rental company that includes this as a service so you don’t have to work with multiple vendors for the set-up. I’m not in CT but my rental company offered it as an add on.
