Have you ever been to a party in the evening where you could hardly see from one side of the dance floor to the next?
Well, I have and it made wanting to walk around and mingle with other guests such a hassle that not many people did. Lighting for an event is crucial to set an ambience for your guests and to help create the tone in which you are going for. Here are a few things that you will need to consider when thinking about lighting for your next gathering.
Things to Consider for Lighting
You will first need to either visit or visualize what your space is going to look like. Is there a bunch of windows? Is this a narrow place or have the capacity for doors to be open and let in more light? You will also need to consider what kind of tone you want to set up for you guests. If you are wanting to guests to party all night and only have one light, well odds are they are not going to be moving around much because they can’t see. So consider doing a light spray (the top picture) over your dance floor. If you are wanting it to be more classy than you can always get chandeliers to hang with some softer lights around the perimeter of your space/tent. Remember that you want a balance between functional lighting and decorative lighting.
Your lighting plan will determine how your guests feel in your event/tent space. The brightness, appearances, and overall effects will help your guests enjoy themselves on the day. By renting your fixtures, you can pick and choose everything you need for a memorable celebration.
