Tip : A chain of lights is also an original wedding gift.

1. Choose your string of lights

In order to choose the right wedding lighting sonoma California, it is first important to know how long the string of lights should be. You will find fairy lights from 5 to 100 meters in length. It is usually better to choose a lighting cable that is slightly longer than the actual length you want to bridge.

For example, you want to illuminate a 20-meter fence. We then recommend opting for a 25 meter long chain of lights so that your cable can hang loosely. A cable pulled taut looks a lot less atmospheric.

Once you've determined the length of the cord, it's time to start thinking about how many sockets (and therefore lamps) you want to have per meter. You can choose between 1, 2 or 3 frames per meter. Most customers choose 2 fittings per meter.

If you want extra light, e.g. B. because you hang the lamp in a high tree and the lamps would not stick out enough otherwise, you can choose 3 sockets per meter.

How to choose lighting equipment?

In addition, you can choose between 2 types of cables: the standard and the expandable version. The switchable mast cable can be connected to other switchable mast cables thanks to a unique connector system.

You can e.g. B. Create a 50-meter-long ribbon cable with two 25-meter-long connecting cables. This is useful if your setting makes it difficult to hang very long strands of wire in one go. Or if you want to add another to your future Illu fairy lights. The standard wedding lighting sonoma California chain cannot be connected.

Finally, you can choose between two colors of the cables: white and black.

The higher the wattage, the brighter the light from the incandescent lamp will be. If you want subtle, decorative lighting, it is best to choose lamps with a low wattage, for example 0.7 or 1 watt.

Not sure which wattage is right for you? Then it is always advisable to choose wedding lighting sonoma California. That way you know that you can adjust the light intensity at any time.
