Outdoor wedding that needs lighting? Cafe lights. Indoor wedding that needs some glow? String lights. Ceremony backdrop that needs style? Hanging vertical lights. Photo booth that needs flattering lighting? ALL OF THE ABOVE. Wedding string lights are nothing new, this we know, but when you're going for simple style without a ton of fuss, string lights and cafe lights can make the decor.

Plus, you can totally DIY these by nabbing some string lights and working with your venue to install them in the space. Or maybe the space is your own and you can go wild with lights. Either way, your photos will be SO much more magical with those lights doing all the heavy lifting for the ambiance.

Here are some of my favorite times wedding string lights made photo magic (and a discount on some cafe lights for your wedding!)…
