7 Tips for Chicago Wedding Lighting and Event Lighting
Lighting is one of the most cost effective and dramatic ways of transforming any event space. The Chicago wedding lighting and special event lighting experts at MDM Entertainment have prepared 7 helpful tips on using lighting to help make your venue shine and really “Wow” your guests.
Hire a Professional Lighting Company
A professional lighting company with experienced lighting designers will have the know-how and the right equipment to make your wedding or special event look fantastic.
Do a Lighting Walk-through
When preparing a lighting design for your wedding or special event do a venue site visit with your lighting designer to look at the space and discuss your vision and get their ideas.
Uplighting is probably the most cost effective solution to completely transform the look of an entire room or highlight unique architectural features.
Use Patterns of Light
Project patterns on ceilings or walls or any areas you want to become a focal points (think dance floor) to create interesting visuals. Extra credit for tying the patterns into your wedding theme.
Pin Spot Your Centerpieces
If you have large and elaborate centerpieces use pin spotting to really show them off. Don’t let your beautiful centerpieces get lost in the background when the room lights are dimmed. You’ve probably spent a lot of money on them and you want people to see them in their full beauty!
Candles create a very romantic atmosphere and are very cost-effective. Surround low centerpieces with tea lights. Place candles on ledges and window sills wherever possible. If your venue doesn’t allow open flames use realistic LED candles.
Your Name In Lights
It’s your day to shine! Have your names, monogram or logo projected onto the center of the dance floor, onto the head table backdrop or onto a prominent wall.
