Uplighting adds SO much! If you can find a vendor that is within your budget, I would say definitely! OR if your venue allows you to do your own uplighting, you can find some online for reasonable prices, and sell it after your wedding. I found 8 PAR can lights for around $130 new & then I will buy the color gels for about $ 5 a piece. Most of our venue is windows so we only need a few. This is MUCH cheaper than any rental Ive seen.

We got married in a club that was a converted warehouse, with black walls.  Our DIY uplighting really made a difference!  Here are a couple of pictures.

Yes, do the uplighting! And to further take away from the plain walls, hang things from the ceiling- lanterns, candles, flowers… Here are some pics for ideas:

Floral chandeliers:

 

Or paper-made chandeliers:

Uplighting is actually pretty easy to do yourself.

I gotta ask, why is the guy in that pic wearing a white dress?
