I am brand new to Christmas Lights and decorating. So brand new that I don't even have anything purchased yet. I would like to buy some lights but I don't even know where to begin or where to buy them at. I have been checking home depot, lowes, and menards but have the time, the online specifications don't say if they are dimmable or not, and from what I have been reading it is best to have dimmable lights for a good display. I did read in one of the forums that Walmart actually had a good selection to choose from, but once again, where do I start and what do I buy in regards to LED lights? I want to start off with a decent display and I don't want to buy lights that wont work for a light show. If someone could point me in the right direction so I know exactly what to look for and buy that would be awesome! (Pictures of light strings are always welcome too! haha!) I am trying to plan this all out so I don't have just a bunch of random things or I buy the wrong lights! Is there a particular brand, style, etc.. to purchase?
I know I need a controller as well, so I will be buying one of those soon, so if anyone has any suggestions on something decent that would give me a good start that would be great! Or If I need any other hardware to go with it! Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated! Like I said, I am completely knew to this!
I am excited to get started, so fire away at what I need to get this going for next year!!
