Lighting is a very important piece in wedding & event planning. Whether indoor or outdoor, lighting will not only enhance the look of the venue, but also enhance the décor you’ve spent time designing.

Asses the Venue – Where will your wedding take place? Some venues offer lighting options. At The Crane Bay, we have LED lighted panels & columns as well as moving lights.


LED’s are great for color changes and vibrant colors. They’re also common in strands and good for accent lighting.

Use Color – Think outside your wedding palette when choosing colored lights. If you’ve used greenery throughout your wedding, try to avoid green lighting. Opt for colors that complement all skin tones, like magenta or rose. Lighter blues also add an interesting dynamic to a room.


Think about the agenda of your reception and even consider changing the shades throughout the course of the night. This can create an interesting atmosphere and help keep guests entertained.


Work with your lighting designer to figure out which type of lighting fits your budget. Your vendors and guests will be happy with the results, and you’ll have a reception space that is guaranteed to impress.
