Need help (and some picture examples) of lighting that you are using or have used.
I wasnt sure i even wanted lighting but Fiance and the DJ convinced me I did 😉 so we decided on one color uplights. After looking at the venue, DJ suggested either adding more uplights (since the room is HUGE) or intelligent (moving) lights. On the dance floor that he can speed up or slow down (i think i HATE this idea)
I am concerned that the venue is going to end up looking like a “club” instead of an elegant wedding.
what do you guys think?
When I look at 1 color uplights, I think this is what I am wanting but if I go with purple, are all my photos going to look “purple?”
Im really stressing out about this for some reason.

I tried to help you in your previous post.
Stressing about Uplighting vs. “intelligent lighting”
and if you use DJs lights they will stay one color for entire night.
If you do professional LED lights they will change colors all night and to the music. It requires assistant to do that too.

Purple would look beautiful! The only concern is if you have photography that it is light enough in your venue to get great pictures. During our dinner service we kept everything “mellow” with no colored lights (first picture). Then when the dancing started we added some color (second picture)!

Here are mine
This is what it looked like when lights were on. DJ and Darling Husband convinced me as well and I am so glad that did. It actually was very elegant and later when the lights got darker it was more classy club if that makes sense it was perfect for the dancing and the enviroment we wanted to create for our guests

I used this site for some inspiration
I will be doing amber uplighting at my wedding. I think the amber provides a warm glow, the dramatic effect of event lighting, but is less clubby than the pinks/purples. I do like those a lot though, they just don’t go wtih teh white/gold/formal theme of my wedding.
Do you have other options? I am considering doing pinspotting on the tables, only b/c its available at my wedding and part of our package, otherwise I wouldn’t bother with that kind of addition.

@HapaBride: We are doin the same. We are keeping our lighting blue throughout dinner, and then switching it up once dancing starts. Our tech for the night can fade the colors into one another seamlessly and determines it based on the energy of the party. We’re staying within our color scheme for that though, so since we’re doing cobalt blue and dark pink as our colors, there will be shades of pink/purple/blue but it will never change to say, neon green.
