Some FAQs:

What colour of lights should I choose for wedding decor?

Decorative lights should be white or soft yellow, with deeper tones like violet, blue, and red reserved for the dancefloor!

What should be the measurement of string lights?

When wrapping lights, we suggest using at least 100-150 lights per foot to two feet of the tree to be on the safe side. When hanging lights around poles or bannisters, measure the overall area with tape and add at least 6 feet on each side more.
