Here's what I know - we definitely want blue uplighting of some kind, preferably more of a color wash,
Than columns of light.
We're not so interested in a custom monogram gobo,
But we do like the idea of casting an interesting light pattern on the dance floor (if it's not too expensive).
We won't need pinspotting since there will be no traditional centerpieces or wedding cake,
But highlighting the cake and candy buffets could be nice (again, cost allowing).
I also saw pics of ceiling/wall light patterns, which made me wonder whether that could be a more affordable way to make a big impact (versus 45 blue uplights).
Actually, while I was looking for pictures to illustrate this post I stumbled across an image that has lots of the elements I'm describing.
Blue color-washed walls, accented specialty tables, and patterned white light for dimension. Yayexciting! I'm gonna send it over to the lighting guy and see what he thinks.
How will you incorporate lighting (artificial or au naturale) into your wedding?
