Uplighting: Why to Incorporate it into Your Wedding

When it comes to weddings, there are quite a few things that go in and out of style with rapid succession. A life size wedding cake that is a frosting covered likeness of the bride? I think it’s safe to say that will forever remain in the recesses of horrible wedding ideas, never to be unearthed again. However, there is one wedding production trick that has gained considerable popularity in the past two years and shows no signs of going out of style. Uplighting, for good reason, is one wedding trend that ought to span the ages. It’s ease of use, classy appearance, and subtle decorating style have made it a go-to choice for brides and wedding planners everywhere. Here, we’ll explain why it is such a hit.

Uplighting is a hugely popular wedding phenomenon. So much so, in fact, that popular wedding production companies like MJ Unique Events find that all of their uplights are off the shelves and at an event every single weekend! So, why are they so popular? Here are a few reasons:

1.) Strategic Highlighting of Reception Area: The way you light your reception area can make or break the evening. Using uplights in a strategic way can completely transform a lackluster room into a breathtaking scene. Strategic uplighting can make ceilings appear taller, highlight certain areas of the reception area — embellished window frames or door ways, and emphasize particular decorations at the reception, like the cake or the wedding party table.

2.) Set the Perfect Tone and Enhance the Atmosphere: No one is looking to dance the night away in a drab room or a room with all fluorescent overhead lights. No, in order to set the tone for an evening of celebration and fun you want to have an inviting and warm room. What better way to do that then by strategically uplighting? Nobody knows how to set the stage for a perfect event better than MJ Unique Events.

3.) Showcase Your Theme: More often than not the bride and groom will have designated a theme for their wedding. That doesn’t necessarily mean Nascar or My Little Pony themed. More often than not, the theme of a wedding is as simple as a color scheme. There is an unlimited spectrum of colors to choose for your uplights. Uplights can be used as a tasteful and subtle way to further incorporate your wedding theme into your decor.

4.) Enhance Photographs: Professional lighting, like the kind provided by MJ Unique Events, can provide visually dynamic and stunning photographs. Why settle for anything but the best when it comes to remembering your special day?
