Don’t be afraid of color! If you opt to not have a splash of color added to your wedding day attire (i.e… bridesmaid dresses, bouquets, etc.), you can always consider adding color with lighting. Lighting is a beautiful option that can alter any venue into the wedding affair of your dreams.
Side Note: I ran across the below pictures and was immediately reminded of the school yard days when we played the ever popular “Red Light Green Light” – where someone was the caller and after they yelled “Green Light” a whole group of people tried to run to the “safe zone” before the caller yelled “Red Light” and everyone had to stop. I loved that game.
Ok, back to the lighting …
Red lighting has become very popular during a wedding cocktail hour and reception. I’ve been told it is a lot easier on your eyes and makes for really cool reception photos and video. My husband just shot a wedding with red lights during the reception and I must say, the video was really nice. It gave me the impression of a fun and intimate private evening, which it was!
Red lighting can also help to project up-lighting on the ceiling of a tent or reception hall. I love the combination of red up-lighting with the use of white chandeliers pictured above.
Can’t forget about the green light. Not as wildly popular as the red light, green lighting tends to be less memorable. As you can see from the pictures below, green lighting can be very nice and a lot softer than you might expect it to be.
You can also add green lighting in different areas of your venue, like neon tube lighting or floor lighting. This is great way to add your green without taking away from the other colors in your wedding decor. You can also mix different hues of green to give your space that extra touch of personality.
