There’s a good chance you might think that lighting is expensive, unnecessary or overrated. Before you axe this out of your budget, take a look at the ways lighting can transform your event space. From bulbs to marquees, lighting is offered in a variety of shapes, sizes and budgets. These days, there are many options that go beyond the chandeliers and paper lanterns! Just last night I was at the Boston Winery. Due to the overwhelming response to a temporary string light installation, they decided to permanently install them as part of their decor at their gorgeous venue. Take it one step further and include a few up lights to accent their natural brick walls and wine barrels. The effect will be HUGE and the budget can be small. As we always say, fake it ’til you make it!
A few gobos can elevate your ceiling, string lights will add twinkle to your outdoors affair and marquee letters can accent your dessert table. I’ve included some of my new faves here for you!
