Is Wedding Lighting Important?

Aside from your centerpieces, linens, flowers and drapery, there is one element of any wedding that is often forgotten about, but can really help set the mood and ambiance for the night ahead, and that’s LIGHTING! Wedding lighting is often an area where people feel they can tighten the purse strings on, but honestly, it can be one of the best bangs for your buck when it comes to décor, for more reasons than one:

  • Add A Splash Of Color:

    Often banquet halls are finished in a very neutral color palette, therefore by adding some additional lighting you can spice up the room to fit your colors or theme, while at the same time setting the feel for the entire event.

  • Change It Up:

    Maybe you want to start off with an intimate setting for dinner and then change the feel to more of a club vibe at night – with the help of lighting this can be done with just one flick of a switch.

  • Put Your Stamp On It:

    Personalize your event by having your lighting designer project your names or a monogram on the dance floor or a wall of the venue – the added stamp will really help complete the overall look for the night.

  • Matching Your Color Palette:

    As with most weddings, your color palette often consists of more than one color – in order to maintain your palette throughout the entire venue, try projecting one color on one wall, and the alternate color on the next wall.

  • Add Some Life To The Party:

    It is incredible how far a little lighting can go – by warming up the room with some additional LEDs, this will add to the overall excitement of the day, especially when it comes time to hit the dance floor.

  • Sophistication On A Budget:

    Rather than bust the budget by spending on unnecessary décor items to enhance the sophistication of the room, lighting can help enhance the foundational qualities of your venue and provide a very high end look for only a fraction of the cost.

  • Whimsy Is In:

    If high tech LED lights aren’t your thing, candlelight and twinkle lights can make for a very romantic evening and are sure to please not only your guests, but all those rustic and shabby chic couples out there as well.

  • A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words:

    Not only will lighting help maintain the quality of your pictures, but it will also make both your pictures and video look much more colorful and vibrant; let’s be honest, the last thing any couple wants are dull pictures to look back on and show their future children.

If these aren’t enough, wedding lighting can also help transform a room from drab to fab in no time. With the ability to spotlight all the important elements of any wedding, such as centerpieces, the cake, and guests during introductions, dances and toasts, there is no doubt that additional lighting can truly brighten up any event.
