We have a global/Moroccan theme for our ceremony/reception, and I really want to have candle-lit lanterns on the reception tables, but we are doing a heavy hors d’oevres buffet instead of plated dinner and then we are playing board games instead of dancing, so I think we have to have the lights on the whole time! Can we still have the candles and lanterns if we have the lights on? Is there some way to have enough light without using overheads, which I hate?

This is the feel I would love, including the purple lighting, just brighter.

I think you can but I would suggest dimming them not to have them on all the way. Also…maybe you could have a games area with brighter lights on and then dimmer elsewhere. That way you can get the full effect of the lanterns and still play games. Beautiful picture.

@Barika: ok that’s a good idea. Thanks 🙂

Quick question, and maybe this is a stupid one…
But how are you going to play board games if you have lanterns with lit candles as your centerpieces? Like, where are the games going on the table?

Are you doing uplighting? Or just candles-only.
I know from experiance.. when the power goes out, we light candles and play board games. It’s a little tough to see it, but certainly doable.
I think if you were planning on having uplights AND candles, it would be fine.
