Ready, Set, Glow
Illuminate your wedding venue with the warm glow from the Chiara Fairy Lights. Fairy lights tend to transform the venue to mimic a scene straight out of a fairytale, especially when paired with the ever-present greenery and earthy tones of a rustic-themed wedding.
However, if draping fairy lights throughout the venue does not appeal, you may consider pairing it with mason jars, flowers or the table centrepieces for a toned-down glow. The Chiara Fairy Lights are available in four different lengths.

For an authentic rustic vibe, the A’laya Lantern will do the trick. Lanterns exude a vintage-esque air, ideal for the theme.

Its versatility also allows it to serve as aisle, reception or table decor and can be coupled with flowers and/or candles. Available in 4 sizes, the A’laya Lantern comes equipped with handles and can be hung throughout the wedding venue instead of the usual standing arrangements.
