One big fad now is adding lighting and draping to your ceremony and reception rooms. Using lighting and draping can transform any space from drab to fab! What most brides miss – it is expensive and time consuming, so be sure to plan this part of your event very carefully.
Draping comes in many different colors and fabrics so the options are absolutely endless!
As for lighting, the most popular is uplighting (which goes around the walls) and then pin spotting (which highlights your centerpieces or cake from the ceiling). When hiring someone to do the lighting for your event please make sure that they are using LED lights. These types of lights don’t get hot, so guests can’t burn themselves on them or they won’t catch your draping on fire. If the company you are considering uses “cans” then you might want to reconsider, as “can” lights get VERY hot and when left on for several hours can be very dangerous.
Using lighting and draping for your event can be fun and very unique. You can change the colors every 30 minutes if you choose and create a new event each and every time!
