3 ways to use outdoor string lights for your next outdoor event

String lights give a vintage feel to any outdoor event, so it’s not surprising that more and more people are using these wonderful light sources as a feature for barbeques, garden parties, birthdays and even wedding celebrations.

In this article, we’ll discuss three outdoor events where string lights can offer stylish illumination and suggest the best products to help you get the look you want.

Wedding Celebrations
More and more couples are choosing to hold their wedding receptions at home due to cost, and with plenty of guests to cater for, you’ll need to make the most out of any available outdoor space in order to accommodate everyone comfortably.

For wedding celebrations with a vintage theme, the V-Tac IP54 Linkable LED E27 Festoon String Light gives the traditional light bulb style a modern-day makeover and are suitable for outdoor events of all types.

What makes these festoon string lights particularly good for weddings is the fact that they can be linked to create a sparking canopy of lights or strung up separately to adorn decking areas, patios or even shrubs.

With the ability to add lightbulbs of any shape of colour, you can easily reuse these festoon string lights again and again using different colour schemes.
