How Many Lights Do I Need?

Bottom line: It’s better to have too many then not enough.

Big guest list? Large venue? Separate cocktail hour area? When it comes to the amount to lights to properly fill a room, it all depends on the size of the reception space.

There’s always a place to put an extra light, whether it be in the entrance way, under a sweetheart table, or behind the cake table — that beam of color instantly amplifies that space. So, if you have one or two extra — they’ll never go unused.

Add On Option: Custom GOBO Monogram Template

What the heck is a GOBO template? It’s technical name for a circular stencil that is put over a light to project a design or pattern onto a wall, ceiling or floor and man, is it cool!

Mike Staff Productions can create a customized monogram for any couple. You can choose from endless fonts and styles, featuring a variety of motifs:

  • Last name
  • First names
  • Wedding date
  • Initials

Our Uplighting Technology

Don’t think adding uplighting to your wedding reception means adding one more thing to worry about on your big day. Our team has you covered and here’s how….

    1. LED Lights. Our LED lights (Par 64 bulbs) use much less electricity than (and don’t get as hot as) regular incandescent light bulbs. LEDs are great for color changes and vibrant hues.
    2. Beam lights. This style allows us to illuminate only the things that need to be seen and keep light off the things you don’t want lit. Beam lights create a dramatic look without competing with other lights or overpowering the room.
    3. Custom Color(s). We can literally create any color of the rainbow for you to display at your wedding. It’s recommended to feature an accent color around the room;
      1. Bridesmaid dress color
      2. Linen accent
      3. Color from floral arrangements ETC.
    4. Individually powered. Each light will have it’s own power source, which dramatically eliminates the chance of it losing power. You’ll never have to worry about a battery going out or tripping over wires that have to extend around the perimeter of the room
    5. Certified Team. We have a team of certified professionals who know how to properly connect and display uplighting. We have an ‘on-call’ system in place to guarantee setup will be on time and efficient.  

Let’s WOW your crowd! What’s your wedding date?
