Reception rooms will of course have some type of lighting… some better than others. Provided that your venue does not offer colored or effect lighting, suggestion two may work just perfect for you.
Lighting can add depth and excitement to a reception room. The lighting industry is filled with exciting options that will blow your mind. Depending on your budget you can invest quite a bit with things like table spot lighting, custom gobos, glowing furniture, moon balloons, sparkle drape, chandeliers, enhanced dance floor or stage lighting and so on. All of these options are fabulous and if you have the budget, totally go for it.
We suggest the very minimum to add what is known as Par Cans, which will come with a gel color of your choice. A gel is basically a colored film that goes over the light to illuminate the designated color. The Par Can is usually used to up-light or spot light an area. By adding even just a few to your reception room, it will take your room from whatever to WOW.
No matter what lighting you choose to do, consult an expert. Lighting can get complicated and someone by your side with experience in this area will get the great production results you are after.
