3 Ways Uplighting Can Change Your Wedding Day

Your wedding day is often considered to be the most important day of your life. It certainly is the biggest celebration you’ll ever host. You spend seemingly endless hours planning it, and your entire life dreaming of the perfect day. Friends and family, old and new, come together in celebration of your marriage. While the ceremony is all about the bride and groom, the reception should be catered to your guests having an absolutely amazing time. This can be accomplished in a number of ways but if you’d like to add more pizzazz to your reception, you should consider using uplighting on your wedding day.

Here are three ways that uplighting can take your wedding reception to the next level:

Go Bold

You may initially think that you want a very subtle color for your uplighting such as white, but we recommend going bold with your color selection. If you want to enhance the reception venue properly, you’ll want to choose a color such as red, blue, purple, or magenta. These colors seem to get people in the celebratory mood while making the venue look better than ever.

 Perfect Your Placement

This will be important to consider if your venue is particularly small. You’ll want to have a few feet around each light to let your guests enjoy the full effect without feeling cramped. Additionally, you’ll want keep enough space around the lights so that your guests don’t trip over them when walking to their tables. It’s a smart idea to get a layout of the venue ahead of time so that you can properly plan for the perfect placement of your lights.

Go Big or Go Home

Too few lighting fixtures can be worse than none at all, in our opinion. Using only a few uplights can create a look that you won’t want to remember for the rest of your life. Keep it consistent and utilize your space properly. Be sure to talk with a lighting expert to ensure that your uplighting is accentuating your space and creating an environment that your guests will enjoy.
