Many couples spend over 50% of their wedding budget on the reception and a big slice of this money pays for the décor of the reception area. Whether your celebration takes place in a classic ballroom, a renovated antique barn or your backyard - consider lighting as your top priority. We see so many weddings where thousands of dollars are spent on silk screens and tablescapes, yet the lighting is left up to the janitor who turns on the lights that morning. Just take a look at your nearest club or bar…it’s the lighting that makes the look and feel of the venue, not necessarily how much they spent on monogrammed napkins! Consider lighting a top priority when you’re designing the picture-perfect reception.
