Tabletop lamps for weddings and events are among our top trends of 2024. Lamps are the perfect compromise between lighting and decor. They help set the theme and also provide area-specific lighting. Part of the recent surge of "lamps for weddings Instagram posts" comes from the popularity and modernization of lithium-ion batteries. Wireless, battery-powered lamps mean no cables on the tables. And no cables on the floors. This takes lamps from a time-consuming setup that is never perfect because of the cable to an easy 20-minute setup.

So, If you've decided you want lamps for your wedding, we can help. Here are a few of our favorites new additionfrom our Richmond, Virginia, lighting and decor inventory.

Lamp Posts

Lamp posts are standalone fixtures perfect for illuminating small areas of interest. They are great for bar areas and outdoor gathering spaces and for lighting up the way to the bathroom! They are another excellent decor and lighting compromise. Sometimes, people even use them for ceremony spaces.

Artificial Greenery For Weddings

Artificial or Faux Greenery is an excellent alternative solution for the real thing. While nothing can replace real flowers, artificial greenery is a great filler. The best way to use artificial greenery for your wedding is in areas where people can't get a great look. Backdrops, ceiling displays such as mirror ball looks, and archways are all places where faux greenery is an option for your wedding.

Many people use faux greenery as a background filler and hire a florist to fill the rest with real flowers. Do you need a florist? Fluorescents and Vogue are some of the best!

New Wedding chandeliers for 2024

Chandeliers are some of the most popular wedding rentals to make a statement. Some of the best wedding chandeliers in Richmond are in The Wedding Lighting Co.'s inventory. Find chandeliers for any theme in the wedding lighting guide. 

It's also essential to know that wedding lighting professionals hang chandeliers in several ways. One of the most popular ways is to use a chandelier arch support. These attractive support options are perfect for when there is no existing overhead support. Chandelier arch supports look great for weddings on the river or the beach. They are also a unique option, becoming more widely used for indoor events. Florists love decorating these supports, but faux greenery also works fine.
