Elevate Your Event: Lighting
Posted by: Kimberly Wallner
One of the easiest ways to change the mood of an event is with lighting. You can wash a room in color, pin-spot a centerpiece, include an unexpected lighting element… the possibilities are endless!
One of the easiest ways to change the color and feel of a room is with up lights, and with modern LED lighting this is easier than ever. But it is important to make sure the lighting color complements and enhances the space; if your wedding decor and flowers are in blush tones you don’t want the walls of your venue washed in hot pink! Make sure your lighting vendor understands your color pallet and ask to see a sample of the lighting color when possible.
For a princess themed wedding you can drape the entire room and wash the walls in a pale pink, then use pin-spotting to highlight the tall centerpieces.
Another trend we love is the use of unexpected lighting elements. For a vintage-industrial look we can hang Edison bulbs over the dance floor.
Using chandeliers for outdoor weddings is a more common trend, but still lends a beautiful and “unexpected” element.
And finally, there is always the use of the ever-classic cafe bulbs for an outdoor reception. Whether used over a dining area, dance floor or an entire reception these are the perfect way to anchor outdoor spaces.
