Okay ladies. Uplighting… this is a new idea that i have been given. to uplight my room. Here is my wonderful room. no uplights in these pictures. it was for an art show. my colors are burgundy, black and silver, the linens will be white. centerpieces will be loads of candles. uplighting is an additional $350. is it really neccessary or just a fad. I can’t remember any wedding before with uplighting so i’m not sure. I think the room is beautifuly lit as is but i need some unfiltered opinions. Help me out here bees!

Those chandeliers are gorgeous!!! I think some uplighting would really highlight the arches and architectural features of the place. If you have the room in your budget, I say go for it. If not, you can live without it.

i love uplights! i battled with this decision as well but ended up doing it – he had the long uplights that run the length of the wall and i had them set on red for dinner but when dancing came we had him have the lights change colors – i think it really helps set a tone and makes it more romantic looking – plus it got everyone in the dancing mood when the colors started to change.
here is a picture of my candle centerpieces – you can see the red glow of the room in the background
sorry the pic is so big! i cant figure out how to resize

$350 in this market seems high to me. See if you can negotiate -it always help to have more light for the photographer. It is a very simple task and you might even be able to get some guys from a local theatre department or university to do it for $100.

I paid $350 for my uplighting and thought it was worth every single penny!!
It really finished the room!
A soft amber uplight and with all the candles in your venue would probably look amazing!

If you’re using tons of candles and those chandeliers, do you need uplighting? I think the classic beauty of that place is incrediblybeautiful and uplighting might take away from that.
