Turning down the lights will certainly help, but you for that look you’ll need lights that provide a larger wash intead of a tight beam of light.

@MissFireFlower:  I’m not sure if they are called anything differant, I don’t think they are.

But when you talk to whoever is doing your uplighting, just let them know you’d prefer a large wash of color over a tight beam, they should know what you’re talking about.

Oh, and it also depends very much on the details of the building, if you’re hiring a company they should know where the lights will look best, to accent certain features that you light and such.

The inspiration photo has pin spots on the tables to illuminate the centerpieces and give people some light to see their plates/each other. That way, they were able to turn the ambient lights totally off.

The “bad” photo could also be a victim of poor photography/white balance. But I really think it’s the ambient light.

Have you checked with your venue about electrical loads per outlet, or talked to them about cord management? Uplighting can become a heat/electrical/fire hazard in a hurry. It can also overload the electrical system and cut power to your reception room. Make sure the venue knows what you are doing! There’s  reason pros do this usually :-).
