Uplighting is our most popular light add-on and still many couples don't realize its importance. The subtle light that splashes any color to the room changes the entire environment to turn a standard room to a beautiful, picture worthy event space.
Wedding Uplighting Basics
Until the early 2000s, people generally stuck with the lights that were offered by the venue for their wedding reception. However, after the introduction of uplighting, this style became popular and hasn’t yet lost its grip. Uplighting is simply the artful placement of light fixtures, pointing upwards, to create a visually appealing effect.
Focus on Important Areas
You’ll most likely use a well thought out placement of light fixtures to create the perfect, elegant atmosphere in your reception (or whatever other vibe you’re going for), but don’t forget the importance of the cake table, reception tables, and any other space you know will be important to not only you but also the guests. Some companies can create unique lighting effects on the dance floor, too!
Remember to Never Under-Light and Work With a Company That Knows the Area and Venues
Don’t fear the light. You want to really transform a space into your wedding, especially if you’re using a large hall. You want all your guests to see the hard work that you (or you and your wedding coordinator) put into creating this day.
Hiring a company that knows the popular venues in the area means that they’ll already have an idea of how uplighting will best enhance your reception. We’ve seen numerous weddings in general and hopefully a handful of receptions in the venue you’ve chosen. So we’ll know what works and what doesn’t for that particular space.
