Wedding Reception Event Lighting And Up-lighting (Uplighting) Ideas
I Am Looking For Uplighting At My Wedding Reception
This is the era of TV Wedding planning shows – Platinum Weddings, My Fair Wedding, Say Yes To The Dress, and Four Weddings. There are so many great wedding planning ideas that are presented. One of the biggest wedding trends for 2010 is the use of lighting at your reception.
You can turn an otherwise boring reception hall into an amazing display of light and color to help accentuate your wedding color scheme. You can make your wedding color pallet come to life. Having Red Flowers? Use the complimentary color – green or light green on the walls to make them pop. Bridesmaids’ dresses are eggplant? Use a lighter lavender on the wall to give them more of a 3rd dimension as the bridal party enters. Ugly wall in your facility? You can paint the wall any color you like with up-lighting
Wedding event lighting can also take the form of texture lighting. Custom light patterns or gobos can be made to mimic your cake design, invitation pattern, or to give character to an otherwise boring space. Maybe you want to project stars on the ceiling of your wedding reception venue? With a few theatrical projection lighting fixtures, high output LED uplights or par can event lights, you can transform a low-end facility into a high-end-looking wedding venue.
There are many wedding reception lighting ideas that we can talk about. Using a custom gobo light pattern or “your name in lights”, you can personalize your wedding with your initials, name or wedding date. You can dress up your wedding cake by focusing a wedding gobo on the wall. You can place your name in lights on the dance floor or wall above your head table
You can highlight architectural features with event lighting using LED up-lighting fixtures or conventional par cans as your uplights. Using event lighting at your wedding, you can make columns stand out, fireplaces come alive, lounge areas take on a new feel, dead space becomes artwork, your wedding cake is backlit. Lighting can completely transform your wedding reception.
