Proper wedding lighting doesn’t just enhance your venue; it also highlights the important elements of your décor, such as centerpieces, and creates focal points for certain areas of the room, such as the dance floor or head table.

How to create the perfect lighting for your wedding

As you plan your wedding, you and your lighting designer (if you hire one) should visit your venue in the evening to know how your actual wedding will look when the sun goes down and the lighting elements come more into play.
