While planning an event, it’s really easy to get bogged down in all of the details. The linens, the flowers, and a million other tiny details that pull together the overall look. But, over the many years I have spent wedding planning or planning in general, I learned that there is one detail that can really make or break your event:The Lighting!
Most people will forget many of the details of your event (i.e., the heart shaped measuring cup favors or the exact color and style of the chair you selected or any of the other silly little moments you spent weeks and months worrying about), but what they do remember is how they felt. Were the chairs comfortable, was the temperature too hot or too cold, or did they have a full belly at the end of dinner? Lighting is one of the elements that plays a major role in how people feel.
Candlelight makes anyone feel a little sexy (even when you are feeling a little frumpy!). Warm ambers create a sense of warmth. Blues and purples create a sense of fun and adventure. Lighting is a design element that you can actually feel as well as see!
