5 Wedding Tips About Adding Lighting to Your Decorations

Lighting will add to your beautiful wedding.  Wedding colors of all shades can be used to highlight and compliment any venue!

 

Tip 1… Add lighting in your exact colors.  This might be an obvious one, yet you will want to make sure that the colour your request is the colour you get.  Lighting today allows the designer to make a perfect shade using the technology within the light.  Mix it perfectly!

Tip 2… If you really want your centerpieces to pop, use a light to highlight each one.  This is WAY more affordable than you may think (likely under $300), and will really bring out the colours in flowers and decorations, and make signage easier to read in a dimly lit room.

Tip 3… Use Up Lighting to bring life to plain walls.  Up Lighting will give character and depth to a basic surface.  Straight up, or angled, let our team get creative with it and see what can come of it!Expressions_Entertainment-Manitoba_Wedding_DJ-Mark_Willis_Photography-Dauphin_Manitoba-Selo_Hall-Up_Lighting-Party_ProfessionalsPhoto Credit above image: Mark Willis Photography at the Selo Ukrainian Hall, Dauphin

Tip 4… DIM THOSE CHANDELIERS!   If your decorator will allow it, dim any chandeliers and handing lights.  This will create a warm light and ambience, and bring a much more romantic feel to your space.  Depending on the wattage, turning ceiling and fill lighting back to 40, 50 or even 60 of the full brightness will give the fixtures a beautiful glow.

Tip 5… When using a wedding monogram such as the bride and groom’s initials, (static or animated like the one below), make sure the the fixture is bright enough to illuminate it enough to be seen.  Again, it may sound obvious, but its one of those things you want to ensure.  Texture a wall, cake or bar area.  Placing a monogram on a dance floor will be beautiful, just remember that it will disappear when people make their way onto it!
