I had blue uplighting, and it was very pretty, so I would definitely go with blue!

Edit: I’ve also been to a wedding with purple uplighting, and in my opinion, it somehow made the place seem “colder” and more… sterile almost.. I’m not sure if that makes sense. It just didn’t have the effect I would have thought. The actual overhead lighting was also very bright though, so that could have had something to do with it.

Both look great in pictures, but at the actual event, I thought the blue was much prettier.

@BeeRod527:  What about a soft pink uplghting?  It would match your colors and keep the room from feeling “cold”, which could happen with the blue or purple lighting.

@BeeRod527:  Yea, you definitely don’t want it to look like prom!  Just talk with the people doing your uplighting and ask for a softer pink/blush. 🙂

@BeeRod527:  Wow, sorry it took me so long to reply! I don’t think it would mess with the color scheme, but like I may have mentioned, the effect in photos is much stronger than in real life. Also, it depends on how bright the room itself will be. The DJ should be able to do more of a “wash” effect where the wall is cast in a soft glow of the color, rather than the streaks of light up the walls, if you want something softer.

I do like the blush uplighting as well, though, and think it’s really pretty! I chose between pink and blue for my own wedding. My own reason for choosing blue over pink was because I was afraid of having a reddish tint background for photos, and thought blue would be a more flattering tone as a backdrop (I don’t know that for sure, though).

Either blush or blue uplighting will look fabulous in my opinion!  I don’t think blue lighting will clash with your wedding colors, so it just comes down to a personal choice.

Here’s an idea: If you have time to stop at your venue during setup on the day of your wedding, you could have the DJ show you both colors and then decide. It literally takes just a push of a button to change the color. That’s essentially what I did for my wedding — I actually purchased uplights to set up myself (with the help of my brother).  I had planned to set them to purple to match my wedding colors, but when setting up the morning of the wedding, decided to switch to pink because it looked nicer to me.
