Are any of you Boston area brides getting special lighting (uplighting?) We are debating whether we should spend the money. how much did you spend, what company did you use, and was it worth it??

I used uplighting in my wedding and thought it was totally worth it because it definitely changed the room dramatically. I would highly recommend lighting to any bride!
I worked with ALPS (Advanced Lighting and Production Services), http://www.alpsweb.com/, and I spent around $2000 for 40 uplights around the perimeter of the room, two uplights for ceremony floral arrangements, one spotlight for the entire ceremony area, templates for the dance floor, and all labor costs.
Attached is a picture of my reception lighting. I hope this helps!

Emilie, that room is beautiful! Can I ask where your reception was?

My wedding was at Veronique Ballroom in Brookline, MA. It’s a venue from Longwood Events, and if you look at their website, it looks completely different without the lighting!

Wow, it really does look like a different space. I definitely want to use uplighting, it makes such a difference!

There is also a company called Boston Uplighting — but I have NO clue how they price things out, I just know I looked at them.

I’m getting married at Massachusetts Horticultural Society and few brides and I have struck up a deal with DesignLight and we are all paying $500 each – I think is cheaper to go in with other brides to get a good group discount. All the weddings are between June and October and it’s not continuous weekends.
