Why You Should Include Event Lighting at Your Wedding

Lighting is everything. Especially when it comes to wedding decor. Have you ever been to a restaurant or a boutique and loved the food or product but felt blinded by the florescent lighting? Don’t let awful lighting ruin your wedding decor!
There are endless ways to use lighting to enhance your wedding decoration or theme. If you are hosting an outdoor wedding, consider string lights or accent light fixtures. If you are getting married in a stark white room, consider adding some vibrance to your space with multi-colored lighting. There are many ways to use fun lighting at your wedding without making your reception room look like a rave.
You can also rent a classy, light monogram and display it on the dance floor or on the wall above your sweetheart table. Lighting can be a wonderfully inexpensive way to decorate. Under table lighting is becoming more popular, and way less pricey than decking the table with ornate floral arrangements.

We interviewed Event Lighting Rental, one of the top event lighting companies in Denver, to answer some of our questions about wedding lighting trends, and why you should include unique lighting in your wedding budget.
1) What lighting trends have you noticed in 2017?
In 2017 We have noticed a lot more outdoor weddings that previous years. We’ve  had a lot of inquiries for tent weddings with string lighting.

2) Why should a couple decide to add lighting service into their budget? What does it bring to the ambience or vibe of a wedding?
Lighting has the ability to totally transform a room. Depending on the wedding theme, from classic elegance to a night club appearance, without some type of extra lighting there will be a lack of appeal. It can make certain areas “pop” by highlighting, creating contrast, or adding drama.
3) What is your most popular lighting service and what is your most unique lighting service?
Our post popular lighting service is definitely the string lighting (also known as globe & bistro). Ninety percent of our inquiries are for this type of lighting.  We do have some very unique products such as our special effects lighting. These include things like a starry sky effect, water effect, and more! We also like to create lighting that is unique to the customer, such as our monogram lighting.
We LOVE this monogram in the middle of the dance floor. The pink and blue lighting also completely transforms the room.
