Lighting for events is one of the most simple ways to completely transform your event or wedding. Uplighting can create an intimate and immersive experience for your guests. Monogram lighting can add an extra touch to your wedding dance floor. Let's talk a little bit about why indoor lighting for events is so important.
Lighting is everywhere. It's peeking through your window, or shining outside. It's with you on your day to the grocery store, or standing at the head of the aisle. It's brighter than your eyes can handle, or darker than your bedroom at night. It can take effect on your eyesight, sleep cycle, and most in particular... your mood. No wonder you feel happier on a sunny day, and more creative with the lights down low.
Lighting can even heighten your emotions. Many venues are building with this in mind, creating more spaces available with an open light concept. The more windows, the merrier. Natural light can make a big difference in your mood and it also has a great sense of overall well being.
With this in mind, many brides opt in to renting or purchasing lights for their big day. The options may vary, but the idea is still the same: to set the mood. The mood either deters guests from enjoying themselves, or it makes them feel comfortable enough to get on the dancefloor. Photographer's rave about lights because it allows them to be more creative in poses and candids. It also doesn't hurt that you glow in your photographer's eye.
The hues may differ when purchasing different lights, but if you know what you want, it can be the perfect impression on the space. Let's say you are getting married in a barn that has accents of wood, the color 'champagne' would help accent yourself and guests from the wooden background. If you are getting married in an industrial space, then a whiter hue would be the perfect touch adding to the bricks atmosphere.
Most venues will turn down their lights as your open dance begins, so this is really when the lighting options you've chosen start to shine. Some venues also have built in lights for the same purpose, so always check before renting other options. Or maybe the compatibility of multiple lighting options is so compelling that you do both. Like I said before, the more, the merrier.
