Knot Your Average Events…Importance Of Lighting
Lighting in an event determines how your guests see the room, and it improves and enhances the overall appearance of the ambiance. Have you ever walked into an event and didn’t catch the mood or tone of the event? If you answered yes, was it because the dull lighting or no lighting at all? I personally have been to many events with no or poor lighting. First impressions are what stick and set your mood for the event you’re entering.
Event lighting will set the tone for the event. It is one of the most important mediums to bring the atmosphere to life. Not just up lights and ceiling lights but by having special concepts of lighting can be used to transform any empty space into a visually appealing event space. Lighting is one area you shouldn’t overlook when planning. In fact, it’s one of the most important aspects when hosting an event! Having a direct ambiance will create the WOW as guest enter your event. Having a healthy budget when it comes to lighting and fabric draping is worth all cost when hosting an event. You should use lighting to bring to life center pieces, buffets, floral arrangements, walls, stages, dance-floors, etc…

|Lighting can transform any empty space from an uninspired, lusterless room, into a magical place that was never there prior to lighting. When considering a lighting company for your event, it is important to make sure you or your event planner use a reliable and experienced company that has an eye of your event to make sure to help you reach each and every one of your goals for the event. You should always ask to see pictures of previous events they have worked on, comparing how they turned the emptiness into magic. Working with lighting companies to customize and tailor to your needs and the welcome of your guest will always be remembered in photos and the forever ambiance they remember from your event.
