Lighting is one of the most crucial decor elements that will truly transform your reception space. If you want to wow your guest when the reception doors open for the first time, lighting is a must. The most popular types of lighting to consider when it comes to bringing your dream reception vision to life are uplighting, monogram lighting, texture (pattern) lighting, market (bistro) lighting, and pin spot lighting.
Uplighting is perhaps the most crucial of all the lighting options as it alone can create the “wow” factor for your guests. It is important to have the correct amount of uplights for your reception space. Too few will not give your guests the impact you are going for and will just end up being a waste of money. Too many will over accentuate your reception space and become a distraction to your centerpiece arrangements and other decor elements you put a lot of time and energy into.
So how many uplights do you need for your reception space? Unfortunately, it’s hard to give an exact answer but typically, a venue that holds up between 100-200 guests will typically require between 20-30 uplights. Larger venues that can accommodate up to 300-400 guests will generally require between 30-50 up lights. These are ballpark numbers. Contact us today to set up a walkthrough with your venue. We will be happy to share our knowledge and give you an accurate number needed to create the jaw-dropping the first impression for your guests.
Once we’ve determined the number of lights needed, we will work with you to determine the best color options for your reception. You can either send us Pinterest inspirations of what you want or let us know your decor color palette and we will help you come up with the best options that will complement your decor theme. Contact us today and let us help you create the perfect uplighting solution for your reception!
Once you have your uplighting in place, it’s time to add a personalized touch. There’s no better way to do this than a personalized monogram with your and your fiance’s names and your wedding date projected on to your dance floor or a wall surface of your choice. When your guests walk into your reception space for the first time, they will not only see all the amazing centerpieces and uplighting, they will be immediately drawn to your personalized monogram, and before they even realize it they will start capturing all of the beauty and grandeur on their smartphones.
You might be wondering how we go about creating your personalized monogram at this point. We start by providing you an extensive catalogue of monogram styles and fonts. Once you have decided on the one you like, all we need is the special message you’d like on your monogram. One of the most popular options is to have your initials or first names and your wedding date, but that’s just the standard. We encourage you to get creative!
Once we have your message finalized, we will send the design to our fabrication pattern who will laser cut your monogram and ship it back to us for inspection. Now since this process does take some time, we strongly encourage you to get your monogram decision to us 30 days before your wedding date. And don’t worry, we will make sure to send gentle nudges along the way to make sure everything stays on schedule.

Texture lighting (also known as pattern lighting) is a great way to add visual interest to an otherwise plain surface. It is the perfect solution to bring the walls, ceilings, and floors of your reception space to life. Imagine your guests walking into your reception space for the first time and there are beautiful centerpieces on the tables, the walls are lined with gorgeous uplighting, and an elegant monogram is prominently displayed on the center of your dancefloor. But the ceiling and the walls still look bare and plain.
This is a great opportunity to jazz up your reception space by projecting texture or pattern lighting on your ceiling and walls to add some elegant details to complete your reception masterpiece.
When it comes to designing the perfect texture lighting, it’s very similar to the process for designing your monogram. We will send you our catalogue of patterns and work with you to determine the patterns that best fit your vision based on the architectural elements of your reception space and your overall theme. From there, you can just leave the rest to us on design and execution on the day of your wedding. Be prepare to be amazed by the results.

String lighting (also known as market lighting or bistro lighting) is a very popular and elegant solution to illuminate and add ambiance to your venue whether it is outdoor or indoor. If your venue provides minimal to zero lighting, then string lighting is a great solution to ensure that you and your guests can properly see throughout your reception area and create a warm ambiance at the same time. To further personalize your string lighting experience, we can add lanterns of various colors and sizes that match your overarching decor theme.
Once you’ve decided on moving forward with your string lighting, we will show you a couple of design layout options that will meet the desired outcome for both your illumination needs and decor. From that point, you can just sit back and relax we will handle all of the logistical details with your venue to ensure that we have enough time to set up and deliver on your vision.

Pin spot lighting is the perfect solution to draw attention and enhance anything in your reception space from all of the beautiful floral centerpieces on the tables to your wedding cake to your head table and more. Our lighting specialists will make sure the lights are mounted on stands on the edges of the reception space and elevated high above to avoid undesired glares for you and your guests.
The precise number of pin spots you will need to accomplish your desired outcome will be determined during your walkthrough. We will listen intently to you to fully understand your vision and then make our recommendation on the amount of pin spot lights needed to achieve the results.
