I was just looking at this company online as well. I don’t have any reviews, but I’d love to hear about others’ experiences!

I just booked a rental with them. My wedding is in May so I’ll let everyone know how it goes. I spoke with someone that was actually very helpful. The company seems legit and actually has a bigger ‘Parent’ company that they run locally (I think it is a upscale DJ service) I paid only a $25 deposit to reserve the lights for the date and a total of $190 for 10 lights (minus the $25 I already put down) which I think will be more than enough. I would definitely consider checking them out. The lights are very cool and really easy set-up with about 7 different color options.

I’m trying to do the same…my only hesisitation is that I’d like the security of having an on-hand lighting specialist in the venue in case things don’t go right…has that happened to anyone?

@CassyT:  Congratulations! I’d love to hear what you thought after your wedding. Our potential DJ quoted us at $280 for 8 lights, so DIY Uplighting would definitely be a better deal, but I’m a little nervous about how it would come out.

we were going to do diyuplighting.com but their lights arent that wide ranged. In order to get that color wash that we, and most ppl want, you need to put one down every 3-4 ft. so we went with a local md dealer. his lights can stretch to 5-8ft apart and they rech over 32ft high. he gave us a quote for $250 for 10 lights and that included set up and break down. But send pics! I want to see how they turned out!

Wow, the quotes I have been getting are like $1200-$1500 for 16 lights, but they are LED versus the par cans.

@Soon2bMixon13:  Would you mind sharing the name of the person you used on here or PM me? I’m in MD and that sounds like it might be good! Not sure if we just want accent lights or more of the color wash look, since we also want lights on the dance floor.

@Mrs Lunchbox: Sure! We are getting them from this wedding company called Sweet Sensations LLC. I first heard about them because I was thinking about getting ostrich feather centerpieces from them. But they do like everything and they have pretty good rates too. Normally their lights are $35 each, but they have a sale until april and we got them at 25/light and a monogram for $150. Their website is http://www.sweetsensationsllc.com.

 

Who are you using for your photographer and MOA?? I still dont have one yet. I was thinking about Scott Bay Photography. They are very pricy but his work is gorgeous. and I have no idea for an moa yet, plus my wedding isnt until next year, so I dont know if moa’s book that far in advance.

@Soon2bMixon13:  Awesome – definitely going to check that out! Thank you! I think I responded on the Baltimore board, but for photography we’re leaning towards Kristen at KLM Digital. She’s really familiar with our venue and has a good package for $2000, which fits into our budget perfectly. We don’t have much planned beyond that.. glad to see another fall 2013 bride is planning already!

Has anyone used the save-on-crafts version or know if those are the same as the kind you can rent online?  I know nothing about this but we do still need to figure out what we’re doing for lighting.

I would assume that the save-on-crafts version would not give you the wash you probably want. The cans seem to contain the light a bit. The lights from DIYuplighting are the very strong big round circle lights with several individual LEDs. For the price of the par cans from save on crafts you could just order one and try it.
