Hi! My name is Keri Wootton and I'm the owner of Leave the Details to Me Event & Wedding Consulting. I'm here today to talk to you about how to use lights and/or lighting for your wedding reception. Some of the materials you'll need to do lighting on your own at your wedding are twinkle lights, extension cords, power, and can lights that are rented from your local rentals company. So lighting is one of the biggest things I actually talk my brides about. Lighting is a fantastic way to take a wedding and make it just pop. Lighting is the best way to get wow factor from your wedding. Now, lighting can range greatly in price and in cost. But I tell my brides, if you can rearrange your budget a little bit and squeeze a little bit of money out of your budget to spend on lighting. Even if it's a small amount, they will be so glad they did. Lighting helps your photograph, helps the ambiance, helps everything. So a couple of different ways we can use lighting and lighting companies to decorate a wedding, one of them is in the use of twinkle lights. Stringing twinkle lights from the ceiling of a barn, stringing them on trees. Now this is something you could do yourself. Another great thing to do that is to take lights and put them underneath your tables. These are simple can lights that were rented from our rental company, and we place them underneath the sheer white fabric to give a color shim to this buffet. Another great use of lighting is actually in a color wash. You can actually turn the walls of your reception any color you want. I mean thousands and thousands of choices of colors. Another great thing that lighting companies can do is put patterns on the wall or on your dance floor. It gives a whole another lair of dimension. Another great way to use lighting for your wedding reception especially if you're on a budget is to use some truck lights. These are simple truck lights we purchased at our local hardware store, and then you place them on the ground behind your backdrop, adds a splash of color to the walls. You can even purchase gels to put over the lenses to add some color. If you can again move around your money in your budget a little bit and put some money in the lighting, you'll be so glad you did. It just takes everything up a whole another level, and gives it that wow factor that every bride dreams of. My name is Keri and I'm from Austin, Texas, and I was here to talk to you about how to decorate your wedding with lights.
