There are so many popular trends in the wedding industry currently. Wedding trends are always evolving and growing, and while some trends may last only for a few months, some may stay around for years. I think that one of the longer-term trends in the wedding industry is finding unique ways to incorporate lighting to enhance the event space.
Whether it is through twinkle lights, rope lights, LED signs or bulbs, lit up marquee letters, chandeliers or paper lanterns, these types of lighting have the potential to greatly enrich the event scene. Lighting can significantly affect the mood of an event, both indoors and outdoors.
Outdoor lighting can add elegance to events that are held completely outside or receptions with outdoor patios, and many opt to add patio lighting or stringed bulbs to their outdoor space. Additionally, sparklers and fireworks are a great way to add glow to the night as a newlywed couple makes their exit.
If you are hosting your event at a venue, there are a few things to consider when planning the lighting for your event. First, know where the outlets are located and how much power they can accommodate. Next, you will want to know if any types of lighting are prohibited at the venue due to risk of overheating. Lastly, it is important to know what lighting is already provided at the venue to gage how much more you want to add.
There are so many ways to incorporate lighting at your event to help you bring your vision to life. If you are considering planning an event in the future, consider adding additional lighting to give your event a radiant glow that guests will remember forever.
