Make It Your Own: "Lighten' Up"

Pin It

One of the details that often does not get enough attention at a wedding is the lighting. Sure candles and lanterns are always fun and can be implemented in many different ways, but there is so much more out there that your lighting designer can create for you beyond the monogram.

Many of my examples this week are full of color. Don't be afraid of color! While the lighting doesn't have to have a rainbow effect, a simple wash of blue or pink can help set the mood. Remember, the lighting doesn't only have to come from the ceiling. Besides up-lighting on the walls, there are filters called gobos, that come in almost any pattern you can imagine, and are projected on the wall, ceiling, or the floor. If you're getting really excited about all these lighting options, another one you may want to consider is lighting furniture and decor from within. Having a light underneath a covered reception table or in an ice bucket adds a soft glow, and lighting without adding more physical decor to the table. Finally, something fun and still fresh are LED Dance Floors. These floors are lit from within and can be programmed to change color, intensity, or even
pattern throughout the night.

As you can see there are plethora of options when it comes to lighting. Your Event Designer and Lighting Designer can coordinate to make sure your theme or color scheme is inspired and enhanced. Choosing a pattern and color that portrays the emotion you want to imbue will make it more personal and unique on your special day.
