Nothing will shine more than the happy couple, but if you’re getting hitched under a high-top, your wedding tent will also need some sparkle!
Wedding lighting serves two very important functions:
- Sets the mood on your big day
- Showcases the decor you’ve spent months curating
That’s why it is vital to choose the perfect lighting to compliment your tented celebrations.
But how do you know what lighting will go best in your wedding tent?
Below are a few important considerations to walk through that will help take your tent from bare and basic to glowing and glamorous!
Questions To Ask About Your Wedding Tent
- How do your vendors access the tent?
The type of vehicles that can be brought to the tent may affect what types of lighting can be brought to your location. If only a small van can reach your tent, then your lighting options will likely be limited.
- How much power is being run to the tent?
Your lighting designers need to know how much power is available at your event location and where it’s coming from. Chances are they can bring in generators if there is not enough power available, depending on the tent’s location.
- What is the size and style of the tent?
This will affect how much lighting you can bring in and the type of lighting you need or may want to illuminate the space. Your lighting designer will need to know this to accurately plan how to rig any lights to the tent ceiling.
- Will there be a tent liner, drapery, tent walls, or included lighting?
If the answer is yes, this opens up the opportunity to add more lighting, such as washes and uplights.
