Lighting is a crucial part of any space. From simple tea-light candles to elaborate chandeliers, and fairy lights to lanterns, there’s an endless list of ways to change the ambience of your room. So, rather than just rely on the basic lighting installed at your wedding reception venue, here are 5 ways to make it spectacular for one of the most important days of your life.
1. Mood Lighting
Without a doubt, using mood lighting is one of the best ways to totally personalise your wedding venue, and with hundreds of colours to choose from, a flick of a switch will transform it into a stunning feature to wow your guests. Hot reds and oranges, sexy pinks and purples and cool greens and blues will all give you a totally different look – and more importantly – a totally different emotion. How do you want your guests to feel? Calm and relaxed? Ready to party? The colours can be changed throughout the day to achieve the effect you desire.
2. An LED Backdrop
There’s no need to sit in front of a plain wall or something unsightly when you can have cascading lights behind your top table, swathed in soft, gorgeous fabrics. This is the place they are used the most, putting brides and grooms in the spotlight and making the entire top table a centrepiece. They’re equally as impactful when they’re set up behind a band or a DJ, giving that extra bit of pizzazz to the room.
3. A Starlit Dancefloor
Available in white or black gloss, a starlit dancefloor will not only bring a touch of elegance and glamour to your wedding, but it will highlight the area of the room that needs to be filled! There won’t be a dancer in the room who won’t have the urge to put down their drink and strut their stuff on the stars!
4. Words in Lights
Whether you’d like them on the wall, the dancefloor or the ceiling, this is such a great way to personalise your venue. You can choose just your first names, your new married names or simple words like ‘love’ or ‘marriage’ to give a huge impact to an otherwise bare space.
5. A White DJ Booth
An absolute must for marquee weddings, a white DJ booth with twinkling lights will bring a touch of class to the proceedings and blend seamlessly into your surroundings. But for indoor venue weddings, and together with a white gloss dancefloor and bespoke mood lighting, a white DJ Booth will be the icing on the cake.
