You’ve probably seen them without even realizing what they are called. The dramatic lighting effects at events, in particular at weddings and wedding receptions, that literally light up the entire room. A few of these lights can add a huge visual impact, turning any event into something unique and classy. So, what exactly are these popular lights called? Well, uplighting is their name, and elegance is their game. Keep on reading to find out everything you need to learn about wedding uplighting.
What is uplighting?
Uplighting gives you the ability to easily transform your reception hall into something very inviting and elegant. With their ability to add a large visual impact to any space, they are the perfect solution for bland or poorly lit wedding reception spaces. Unlike traditional fluorescent room lighting, uplights provide dramatic LED lighting in a variety of colors. They are also extremely energy-efficient, generating a very low amount of heat to ensure the safety of your room and your guests. Uplights also have the ability to flicker and strobe to the beat of the music and can change colors to create different moods when desired.
How does uplighting work?
To make the most impact, uplighting is evenly and strategically placed around the entire parameter of your reception area. Placing the lights closely up against exterior walls can make smaller rooms seem even larger than they actually are. On the other hand, placing the lights in the same manner for larger rooms can make the space feel even more intimate. Focusing the uplights on the most important areas of the reception hall that you want to draw the most attention to can help you have the most impact.

Can uplighting be added?
Yes, you can easily add an uplighting package to your wedding reception! But first and foremost, you have to find a professional DJ service in or around your area that offers uplighting packages. Keep in mind that not all DJs offer this type of professional service, because not all DJs are created equally.
