    Hi All the Hilton Brides! If you are planning your Hilton wedding or have had one, I have complety stressed about the lighting. I want the lighting to be natural and dim, and do not want to use any of the Hilton provided huge lights. I am thinking more candles and lanterns. I am afraid though it will be too dark. Has anyone else thought of this??

      I am getting married at the hilton and we are having our reception outside. We are going to use tons of candles and the hotel is going to provide the luminars (candles in the paperbags) for the stairs and surrounding areas. I should have pictures to share with you in a few weeks! OMG!

        Sassygirl- Your wedding is so soon!! Yeah!! What venue at the Hilton are you getting married at? Also, is the hotel providing the luminaries for just the reception site, or also for the walkway down to the beach for the ceremony? Is there a charge for this?

          I had an evening reception at the Hilton. We had candles and they provided some lighting. There was good atmosphere, not too bright, not too dim.

            I too was married at the Hilton. I wanted laterns but in the end thougt they would be too much trouble since I had to get everything. My husband strung white globe lights over the dance floor and it looked great...just how I had envisioned. I didn't worry about lighting and it was just fine. Our dinner/reception was held at the Sun Fun Hut.

                Our dinner was at the SUn Fun Hut. The Hilton provided lanterns and candles. I never noticed a problem with light. Everyone was fine.

                  Jenesis,

                  Thanks for the info. Can you explain what the Hilton provided in terms of candles and lanterns? What were the lanterns like? Where they the bags with the sand and the candle or something else?

                  Thanks!

                    They placed votives on the table and around ledges they had the bags with candles in them. That is the only lighting that I remember. Maybe the pictures will tell a different story.
