Lighting options for an evening reception
Posted 10 October 2007 - 04:20 PM
The reception is scheduled to start 3:30pm and go into the evening....does anyone have any suggestions as to lighting the area? I plan on using candles as my centerpieces, but I was thinking about how to illuminate the entire area designated as the reception (dance floor, food, etc) From what the WC told me it's a big concrete courtyard- basically a blank canvas and i am at a loss of ideas?

I asked the resort and the WC said "standard" lighting- she keeps pushing the cocktail hour outdoors and the reception indoors- but we don't want that.
I inquired about what "standard" means, but have not heard back yet....I've been trying to email the WC with ideas to make sure we are on the same page and to get price quotes to see if my ideas were do-able.
The flood lights seem like the most practical, but the lanterns will probablly add more ambiance?

Paper lanters will help, maybe not provinding huge light, but definitevily ambience and decor... those are so beautiful!!!...
I'm dealing with the same situation, and I got lots of paper lanterners, besides I'm considering party lights : http://www.asianidea...inasparlig.html
AND I'm sure the hotel can provide tikki torches.
Candles are a must, but make sure they are "wind proof" meaning have a long vase where to hold them, otherwise they wont stay on.
