At Wedding Letter Hire we are light up letter crazy. We love our gorgeous letters and so do our customers. Did you know that some of our lovely brides and grooms have based their wedding theme entirely around our letters? They have even used the letter imagery on their invites!

We love looking at different ways that customers can use our letters and after taking a look at Pinterest we have even discovered how to make light up letters ourselves.

Of course our letters are make from aluminium but if you want to know how to make light bulb letters out of anything from cardboard, wood or even plastic there is a wealth of information online which tells you what to do.

DIY Light Up Letters

If you love DIY and already have a number of woodwork tools you could make your own letters from wood or metal.  So if you fancy a go why not take a look at this video which explains how to make light up letters at home.

An Easy Option

Of course not all of us have the know-how to understand the technical side of things. So if you want to find out how to make light up letters the easy way there are some really simple ideas around too. These are also brilliant activities to do as a craft with children or as a fun activity for your hen do! Instead of wood or metal you can use a strong cardboard to cut out your letter shapes using a Stanley knife or sharp scissors. When your cardboard shapes are cut out paint them with bold poster paints to make them look really nice – we think red or white looks striking.

To make the lights you then use bendy glowsticks which you can buy online or in toyshops. Snap the sticks to start them lighting up and glue or tape them around the inside of the letter shape. Turn the lights out and you have your very own glow in the dark light up letters!

Relax and let us do the work!

Of course if you don’t fancy the hard work involved in making your own letters you can make life easy for yourself and hire them from us. We provide beautifully crafted letters to make your big day really special. And you can relax in the knowledge that they will be delivered to your venue on the morning of your event and we will collect them the next day so that the only thing you have to do is enjoy your wedding!
