Lighting is essential for creating a romantic look in your venue with your wedding day decor. In addition to shaping the look of your venue, soft, romantic lighting can also enhance your wedding photos and make a significant difference in capturing your memories throughout the evening. With a few easy tips, it can be easy to achieve the perfect lighting for a fun, romantic, and memorable vibe at your wedding reception.
Make the Most of Selective Lighting
Consider incorporating soft lighting in only specified parts of your space to make the most of contrast between soft brightness and darkness. Selective lighting is also great for highlighting the features of your reception or venue that you want to show off the most. This technique adds a formal look to your venue by appropriately lighting your reception for the evening and playing up the romantic look of your reception space.
Incorporate Tea Lights
Scatter tea lights in various centerpieces throughout your reception to create a soft glow in your room or outdoor venue. By adding these tiny soft lights on each of your tables, centerpieces, or focal points, you can effortlessly create a subtle glow on various features of your reception such as your dancefloor or entryways.
Use Natural Light to Your Advantage
If a beautiful sunset casts a glow in the windows of your reception space, make the most of this natural lighting during your cocktail hour or earlier parts of your reception. This is a perfect way to light the room as everyone prepares to sit down for dinner. Adding soft lights to your reception space as the sun goes down will enable you to make the most of your natural lighting for photos into the evening.
Add Colorful Projected Lights Around Your Venue
For a subtle glow with a hint of color in your venue, light the perimeter of your space with colorful projection lights around the room. This form of lighting will also allow you to incorporate your wedding colors into soft lighting to complement your reception decor while also giving your space a romantic glow throughout the evening.
