Our beaded, crystal Empire Chandeliers are the perfect, elegant touch for a timeless wedding reception. We recommend hanging two or more together from the peak of a tent to achieve this look.

Brides going for a glamorous style wedding often worry a tent will ruin the elegance. Luckily, that's not necessarily the case. A clear top tent, elegant yet simple white drapes, and our Luxe Chandelier effortlessly work together creating this gorgeous, glamorous design.

Our Leran Pendants can be used to create a cluster of chandeliers, which is a great way to illuminate the space and add a little romance to the dance floor. Take your lighting design to the next level by adding in cafe lights. When the suns sets, our Café Lights strung from the clear top tent can create the most magical starry night ambiance.

We are loving all of the tented weddings this season, but don't forget to light the way to a beautiful celebration. Consider mixing our White & Black Cafe Lights in your lighting design, which can be beautifully cascaded over your tented wedding reception space and can even withstand the rain!

Our Darby Chandeliers have smooth lines with a modern lantern-style accent, and beautifully accentuate any wedding space or venue! Hang multiple Darby's in a clear top tent with intricate draping to achieve this design.
