Marquee lights have been making a comeback on the wedding scene in a big way—and we mean that literally! Oversized marquee letters are a major wedding trend in 2016, as are their scaled-down marquee light counterparts. We love seeing how brides transform our space into their own unique style with personalized décor items, including these on-trend marquee letters. Here are a few of our top favorite ways to use marquee lighting at your modern Dallas wedding venue:

  • Go small: use smaller-sized letters for a cohesive look throughout your venue. These make perfect table-toppers, so consider adding your new monogram or initial to the cake display. If you really want to go all-out, customize a group of letters to a special location (“cheers” at the bar or “welcome” near the entrance). Grouped with votives and florals, an ampersand marquee makes a great centerpiece for all your tables. We also love the idea of using marquee letters near picture frames of the couple and their families… spell out your new last name, or group your initials with an ampersand.
  • Go big: oversized marquee letters are getting more and more popular for 2016. Some companies offer letters over three feet tall! We love seeing these setting the tone out on the dance floor, or making a grand statement near the entrance to the reception. Since oversized letters already make a big statement, stick to simple words like LOVE, I DO, or your initials.
  • Overhead: Marquee bulbs don’t have to be arranged in letters! Consider adding romantic lighting to any wedding by hanging string marquee bulbs overhead. An event stylist can help you execute this vision with additional soft elements like fabric draping or florals.
  • Photo Booth: if you go for marquee letters, don’t miss out on all the resulting photo ops! One way to put your marquee letters in the spotlight is to use them in your photo booth. Guests will love posing with this personalized touch to your wedding day.

One of the things we love most about marquee letters is their versatility—they can fit well with a variety of wedding themes. Our modern Dallas wedding venue space’s easily customizable layout allows brides with any wedding idea to execute their creative vision, so we love seeing how brides put a unique twist on wedding trends. Whether modern glam, rustic charm, or modern industrial, any bride can incorporate marquee letters in a way that suits her wedding theme!
