Our reception venue is two rooms. One room is the dining area with chandeliers and windows throughout the room. The other room is the dance floor with three giant floor to ceiling windows and the rooms are connected. We are thinking of having the reception from either 6-10 or 7-11. With only the chandelier lights and some sunlight for a few hours before sunset, do we need uplighting to help add some light throughout the venue?

@Southerngirl4234: I’d suggest talking to your event coordinator at your venue or seeing if you could stop by on a week night when there wasn’t an event to check out the lighting a bit for yourself. I think lighting is tricky to guess at!

There might be “house lights” that you didn’t notice, in addition to the chandelier lights. Otherwise, uplighting is a great way to add light. It will have a fabulous effect with all the windows. Uplighting will get more and more vibrant as the night wears on since the sun will be setting, resulting in the uplighting getting brighter. The lighting transition will go perfectly with the reception as you transition from dinner mode to dancing mode!
