Lightstrings – Product of the Week

This week the very lovely Zara and Linda from Lightstrings came to The Wedding Community HQ to demonstrate their amazing new product.

Lightstrings are a portable fibre optic light string garland decorated with jewels and feathered butterflies that flow from a crystal style base for a truly enchanting effect.

They are battery-powered (batteries last for 5 days with the Lightstrings turned on) making them very versatile as you don’t have to worry about having to place them near a plug socket.  You can also cut the individual fibre optic strands to your desired length and if you gently crimp along the strands with a pair of scissors you can create a lovely dotted light effect.

They are really beautiful and we think they would be perfect as decorations for your wedding. We saw the Lightstrings placed inside a large glass bowl and also a tall glass vase which both looked amazing.

If you are thinking about having centrepieces for your wedding tables but don’t want flowers or candles, these Lightstrings in glass bowls, vases and bird cages are a beautiful alternative. They look great in natural daylight when turned on and off but in the evening when you want to create a romantic atmosphere they look stunning. You could even use green foliage such as ivy or beautiful flowers inside the bowl with the Lightstrings.

They could also be used as decorations entwined in trees, twig trees, flower arrangements or draped over the bar and doorways. The butterfly, sequin and crystal decorative garland allows you to create your own individual effect that creates a talking point.

These are really stunning and we think they will be a hot new decoration for weddings this year.
