Vlog – Wedding Lighting Tips
We interviewed Selective Sound Entertainment Founder, Jay R Rich, once again to ask him for wedding lighting tips that could help Cleveland couples sort out their expectations from reality. In this video that’s just over 5 minutes long, there are actually 18 wedding lighting tips. His insights touch on where to begin with the search for lighting for a wedding, terminology, and what lighting can impact during a reception.
One of the biggest takeaways is how to explain what you are looking for in lighting to a professional. Unlike catering, you’ve likely never ordered wedding design before and you might not get what you actually want. First you have to understand that a professional lighting designer has spent years interpreting the requests of their clients. The lighting designer is prepared to ask the right questions to get to an understanding. What you need to determine beforehand are things like budget, what areas of the room and activities are most important to you, and how you want your guests to feel during the reception. Coming to a meeting with these already figured out is one of Jay R’s best wedding lighting tips.
There are questions you should be asking as well to get the most from the planning process. If you have a Pinterest Board with colors you plan to be using in your wedding, make sure to share that. Speaking of decor, talk to the lighting professional about options before you sign contracts for decor. Lighting has a powerful effect on the overall look of a room that can often eclipse that of decor which makes it a really budget-friendly decision. Not that it’s lighting or decor – lighting can also enhance the decor decisions you do make which means you should be coordinating your ideas before you commit.
