Super Stylish Sunday ~ How Lighting Your Wedding Can Change Everything

Brideys, you know that feeling you get (or used to get) when you go out dancing? Like you're on fire? Like nobody can touch you because you are THAT awesome? The music is rockin', you have a bit of a buzz going and the lights are changing color every time you close your eyes? Nothing beats that feeling, right? Well, wouldn't it be cool if you could somehow incorporate that feeling of euphoria into your wedding? I mean, wouldn't it be great if you and your guests could be made to feel a certain way instead of just simply being in attendance? No, I'm not high right now, bridey, just excited!! Seriously, take a look at these photographs! 

Would these weddings be gorgeous without the lighting? Sure. But, the lighting certainly changes the overall asethetic and mood, right? I know that you are probably thinking that lighting has to be super expensive, and that it's not even a line in your budget, but think again... The picture right below? The DJ did that... Not a lighting company. It was included in the package they picked... WOW! I know, right??

Entertainment companies are expanding their capabilities which means more options for you bridey. However, the more intricate (such as pin-spotting, etc.), the more expensive it becomes, and if that's what you are looking to do, then you'll probably choose to go with an actual lighting company. No matter what you do, take a look at the pictures below, and see how lighting can drastically change the feel of the space.

Totally love the feel of the trees! That's a concrete wall, and instead of ignoring it, the bride chose to enhance it with fantastic design!

That writing projected on the floor? That's called a gobo. You can project your initials, "just married", a particular design... the possibilities are endless.

So, I am in LOVE with the picture above! Like in total LOVE. Here's a perfect example of how lighting can make you feel. Would it be stunning without the lighting, yup. But, you we'd be missing the romance and the warmth that the lighting is providing to us. Or what about the photograph below? How cool is the green glow? Certainly takes my eyes off of the hideous carpet... Right?

The lights are changing color (duh) in the photographs below. It's beautiful in blue and in purple, but it's providing a completely unique experience for your guests...

Again, the glow in the picture above? It's warm, right? Romantic? It would still be a lovely table and room without the lighting, but it's especially fantastic with the right light!

I LOVE this picture! Imagine walking into this event? Amazing...

Bridey, are YOU planning on lighting your wedding? Tell BB what you are spending and if you are using an entertainment company or lighting comany.
