Regardless of whether you are planning for a birthday party or for a wedding, lighting is a crucial element you cannot actually skip. After all, you want your lighting to complement all of the other elements – the ones you really handpicked one by one.

What are some of the best ways to use lighting at your events? We have some tips for you – so read on if you need just a bit of inspiration for your next big event.

  • Gobo lighting. This type of lighting is especially popular among events that follow a modern-elegant aesthetic, but you have definitely seen it look amazing in other contexts too. Choose gobo lighting if you want to add a pop of energy the vibe created at your wedding! It will look equally amazing with your wedding monogram, with your company’s name, or with any other meaningful words you want to project on the walls.
  • Up lighting. Want to add color to a simple wedding venue? Nothing simpler, really. With modern up lighting technology, the entire room can be bather in your favorite color, so that it complements the rest of the décor and your personality as well. Very popular with modern chic weddings too!
  • Be them electric or very traditional, candles have something very romantic about them. Place them in the middle of the table for a warm and welcoming centerpiece, or place them along the walls of the venue if you want to create a magical, old-school vibe every single guest there will love.
  • Planning a vintage, retro, or simply an outdoor wedding? Lanterns are crazy popular with weddings, anniversaries, and wide range of other events too. If you want to create a gorgeous vintage appearance, opt for antique-looking lanterns (place them on the tables, on the pathway leading to the venue entrance, or simply hang them above the dance floor). If you want something a bit more playful, paper lanterns in your party’s colors are a very, very good choice too!

No matter what type of lighting you may choose for your next event, remember that hiring a professional to deal with it all is a very important step in making sure everything looks flawless. So, go ahead, find a lighting service provider who is reliable, honest, and who knows how to combine your wishes with your venue and the décor there. It will be worth every penny!

Event Signage Ideas

Planning a big event soon? We bet you want every single detail to look absolutely flawless – and we definitely understand the importance of this. Regardless of whether it’s a birthday party, an anniversary, a corporate event, or a wedding, this is a big moment in your life and you want to celebrate it in high style.

Of course, you will want to include one of those fun event signs and messages too – but how do you do it? We have gathered some of the most popular ideas for you – so read on and inspire yourself.

  • Neon lights. Perfect for those of you who want their message to really pop! It may be a simple “Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad”, or it may be the date of your wedding. If you want your signage to be more than energizing, neon lights are absolutely perfect. And yes, they can be worked into a more elegant décor too – but you do have to use your creativity for something really nice.
  • Video mapping. This is one of the freshest newcomers in the event signage and lighting tech spectrum – but it is by far one of the most impressive ones too. A beautiful video containing colors, stars, words, and basically everything you want can be projected on a white object – such as the cake, the wedding dress, or any other part of the venue. This idea will make your event look absolutely mesmerizing.
  • Twinkle lights. Those adorable little lights everyone’s including in their outdoor weddings and events? Yep, they can be used as signage too. You don’t have to be very thorough with the message – a simple “LOVE” or the name of your company can be written “in the air” or on a wall with the help of twinkle lights. They will look so pretty, so beautiful, and they will create such a cozy atmosphere!
  • The already classic blackboard is another great way of adding powerful messages to your event. If you want to make it pop, you can decorate the blackboard with lights too – or, why not, you can use classic backstage mirrors as your “canvas” too. Either way, these ideas are perfect for those who love a casual, old-school, but smart-and-sassy event.

The sky is the only limit you have when it comes to event signage – so don’t be afraid to step out of the box and think of ideas that are totally unique. We bet it will look impressive for your wedding!

There are many factors that go into creating the perfect event. From weddings, corporate and milestone events, fundraisers, galas and fashion shows, lighting is the one element that universally transforms the look and feel of every event. With such a wide range of influence, a proper lighting design is crucial to enhance your venue, produce the best photographs, and keep your guests and details out of the dark.

From decorative to functional, a qualified lighting designer can best guide you to use the proper lighting to enhance your space and fully utilize every area to its highest potential, achieving your desired ambiance.

Creative use of uplighting and color washes, pin spots, projections, and string lighting are among the most popular lighting services. You can change the entire look of a venue with uplighting, the most cost-effective way to envelop a space in ambient light. Keeping important details such as centerpieces out of the dark with pin spots or highlighting dance floors and blank areas with a pattern or monogram projection are great ways to make an event feel extraordinary. Outdoor events with a canopy of market string lights feel intimate while being functionally lit with a great decor element.

Just as other vendors are chosen based on their specific knowledge of cuisine, florals, photography or music, lighting is a specialty service unique to each event. Enlisting a lighting company allows you to achieve your desired look with the confidence that you are getting the best design, proper power distribution, and well-versed advice, making your event as special as it can and should be.
