DO work within your budget
Don’t think you can afford wedding lighting? Give it a chance! There are options to fit every budget.
For a smaller budget, we like to concentrate lighting to one or two spots in your venue to get the most bang for your buck. This will give you the wow factor you are looking for without breaking the bank.
For example, most of your wedding pictures will be shot at the head table or on the dance floor. If you only have the budget for 12 uplights, we recommend strategically placing them in those areas rather than spreading them around the venue where they won’t have as much impact.
DON’T forget about setting the tone
Lighting can play a big part in enhancing your storytelling and setting the mood.
LED lights, for example, have thousands of different color shades and temperatures. A good lighting designer knows how to manipulate these options at various points in the event to impact the emotion your guests feel.
For example, you’ll want to liven up and brighten the colors during the grand entrance – it’s a celebratory time! But when the father-daughter dance starts, that’s a great time to make the lighting lower and sweeter. It’s a moment to make your guests cozy.
