Does the venue provide the uplighting shown in the photos?

I totally think that’s sufficient. Those lights will outline the dance floor. I wouldn’t worry about putting to much light on it – it’s a wedding, not a dance club.

@laceydoilies:  You don’t need any more lighting. If the overhead lights are on dimmers, you can adjust the lighting in zones for the dance floor, table areas etc.

@laceydoilies:  honestly, do add more lighting will be a lot of money. the lighting that you have is fine! i too was weary about the lighting at my venue but when i found out how much additional lighting was, it was not an option. the uplights against the walls will create a nice ambiance, and no one will be blinded on the dancefloor by strobe lights flashing in their eyes 🙂

Ours will be at a park so we have to get some lighting.

We are doing uplighting around the entire venue, so it’ll change everything.  That is one of the details I absolutely love, and our DJ is throwing in uplighting for an incredible price.

However, with your venue, I would just take the uplights that the venue provides, especially with large windows, looks great!
