Idea of the day – LED light letters

Happy October! We are lucky in Portland that summer still seems to be holding on, in the afternoons at least. Makes me want to blog all the past warm-weather goodness from the last few months! One great idea we saw at a September wedding we coordinated, was a "BAR" backdrop sign designed by René Steelman of RK Steelman Events and Interiors (also mother of the groom!). It's always so flattering when event pros themselves hire us.

I loved this idea to create a "name in lights" using battery-operated LED tealights. No cords needed! René chose chevron fabric and pink rickrack which she mounted to a board. Then added embellishments like tiny mirrors with more tealights, pink flowers in test tubes, and of course, the letters. More pictures from this fun wedding are on our Facebook page.

Hope this gets your creative juices flowing – do let me know if you've seen or heard any great design ideas at weddings in Portland or beyond; email me at The Portland Wedding Coordinator or comment below.

  1. This looks awesome! I wonder how much this costs? I have been planning my own wedding for about 6 months now and one of the better ideas I have found was photo booth rentals. They are a great way to bring old friends together and it gives guests something to take home with them. I thought this might be something worth sharing. Thanks for the interesting post!

  2. I enjoyed many of your suggestions as well as your previous posts. I just told my wife about your blog and hope she’ll jump on too. Another web site and blog I’ve appreciated . Its about dealing with conflict in all its aspects and I’ve found it very helpful being wedding… Thanks for the good work.
