When you think of your wedding you may picture the color of your flowers and the color of your napkins, but did you look at the color of the lights? Lights have a huge effect on a space. You can wash a color over a boring wall, bring notice to the cake table, or light up you head table so all eyes go straight to you. There are also studies that prove different colors illicit different emotions. Greens and Blues offer a calming effect where reds and yellow are higher energy. Using this is your advantage can help relax people during dinner and get them moving when it’s time to start the dancing.
You can see below how the use of a few up lights can make a big difference to the way a room looks. Even the dullest rooms will come to life with the right color wash.
Dance floor lighting can also have a big effect on your crowd. When it’s time to start dancing most guests need to break out of their shell just a bit. The most important thing is a good DJ that can read the crowd, but after that comes sound and atmosphere. Professional DJs will have the sound covered with professional equipment, but we can do so much more by adding lights. Lasers, LEDs and colored washes can also add a lot to a dance floor. You can even have them move with the beat of the music. There is a noticeable difference to the room once the dance floor comes to life.
Most weddings will benefit from lights in some way. The key is to work with your DJ to pick the right lights for your room and dance floor. Whether you like subtle accents or aggressive strobes, lighting can help show that side of you to your guests.
