Wedding Wednesday: Tip(s) of the Week

Maximize your budget with the impact of lighting! Well-planned lighting can instantly bring your event to the next level!

Here are some great tips from to help in illuminating your wedding or special event...

Assess Your Site
- If you're planning an evening reception, make sure to visit your site at least once when it's dark outside. Look around the room and see where the fixed lighting is focused. Lights that illuminate the walls, windows, and ceiling can draw attention away from the center of the room -- and you want to keep everyone's eyes on the tables, dance floor, and each other. Ask if the site has dimmers for their overhead lights, and if there's any florescent lighting at all, keep it turned off! Also, make sure there won't be any service doors kept open, which could flood the space with light and ruin the effect.

If you're hosting a wedding at home, discuss how much electricity your lighting designer is going to need. Your band or DJ will probably have to tap into your home's power for their speakers, and you don't want to risk blowing a fuse. If your lighting expert is concerned that there won't be enough power to go around, they may consider bringing a generator, which should be kept well out of earshot.

Style & Strut was completely transformed with thoughtfully placed lighting. Thanks to Sunam, Style & Strut felt decadent and intimate. After a walk-through prior to the big day, Sunam assessed the spaced and maximized the venue with well-placed lighting!
