A Comprehensive Guide to the 6 Wedding Lighting Options at Lime Lights Entertainment

A Venue Featuring a Décor Up Lighting Option in a Techno Blue Color

Imagine stepping into your dream wedding venue, bathed in a warm, inviting glow—just the kind you wanted! The dance floor shimmers with a subtle color wash while twinkling lights overhead create a magical atmosphere. This isn’t just a scene from a fairytale—it’s the power of the wedding lighting you chose to simulate a scene right out of a Disney movie.

Lime Lights Entertainment understands that lighting is more than just illumination; it’s the element with the power to turn an ordinary venue into a place fit for a milestone, a celebration of love. It sets the mood and creates lasting memories for you and your guests.

From whimsical fairy lights to dramatic pinspots, we offer a dazzling array of lighting options to bring the event you envisioned to life.

Let’s take a closer look at all the wedding lighting we offer.

1.      Setting the Scene with Decor Up Lighting

Think of decor up lighting as the foundation for your entire lighting design. It creates a warm, inviting ambiance and sets the overall mood for your celebration.

Here are some popular choices:

  • String Lights: These timeless classics cast a soft, romantic glow. Drape them overhead across the dance floor, string them through trees for an outdoor ceremony, or create a whimsical backdrop for your sweetheart table. Choose warm white or fairy lights for a timeless elegance, or add a touch of whimsy with colored options.
  • Lanterns: From rustic paper lanterns to sleek metallic ones, lanterns add a touch of personality and charm. Group them in clusters, hang them at varying heights, or use them to line your ceremony aisle. Consider incorporating elements that match your theme, like vintage lanterns for a garden wedding or Moroccan-style lanterns for a touch of exotic flair.
  • Candles: The flickering flame of candles adds a touch of romance and intimacy. Use pillar candles on reception tables, votives scattered throughout the venue, or hurricane lanterns on cocktail tables for a classy touch. Remember to prioritize safety with flameless candles or enclosed holders, especially for outdoor weddings.

2.      Add the Wow Factor with Intelligent Lights

For a truly unforgettable experience, consider intelligent lights. These innovative fixtures are programmed to change colors and patterns, creating a mesmerizing light show throughout the evening.

  • Moving Heads: These lights swivel and tilt, projecting beams of colored light that dance across the room. Use them to create dramatic chases, spotlight important moments like the first dance, or even project custom patterns like your initials or wedding monograms.
  • Wash Lights: These powerful lights bathe entire walls or areas in a specific color. Play with color palettes to create different moods throughout the night – a vibrant purple wash for a lively dance party, a soft pink for a romantic slow dance, or a cool blue to emulate a starry night sky.

3.      Highlight the Spotlight with Pinspots

Pinspots are small, focused lights that bring dramatic attention to specific areas of your venue.

Consider highlighting these elements with this lighting option:

  • Cake Table: Make your beautiful cake the star of the show with a strategically placed pinspot that throws a spotlight on every detail of the culinary piece of art.
  • Head Table:Draw attention to the head table by highlighting it with pinspots. This creates a focal point for the reception space and adds a glamorous touch to your event.
  • Floral Arrangements: Turn your centerpieces into works of art using pinspots to illuminate stunning floral arrangements.

4.      Embrace the Warmth with Bistro Lighting

Bistro lights are perfect for a touch of rustic charm or a laid-back outdoor setting. When strung overhead across patios, walkways, or over the dance floor, these small, globe-shaped lights create a warm, inviting ambiance.

Bistro lights are often used with warm white bulbs but consider incorporating string lights with Edison bulbs for a vintage vibe.

5.      Make it Personal with a Monogram Gobo

Add a touch of romance and personalization with a custom monogram projection. This can be displayed on a wall, the dance floor, or even the side of a building.

Choose a classic design with your initials, or get creative with a more elaborate design that incorporates your wedding theme.

6.      Wash Away with Wash Lights

These powerful fixtures take on a whole new life when used strategically.

  • Wall Washing:Wall washing is perfect if you can’t fit a photo booth into your wedding budget. Turn a plain white wall into a vibrant backdrop for photographs or the ceremony. Use color washes to create a specific mood – a soft lavender for a romantic atmosphere, a bright coral for a beach wedding, or a dramatic emerald green for a grandiose appearance.
  • Up Lighting: Wash the base of walls in a warm white or colored light to add depth and dimension to your space. Up lighting creates a sense of height, giving your venue the tall ceilings it doesn’t have and making it seem grander.
