6 Lighting Terms You Need To Know

Lights. It’s one of the most important details, but lighting is frequently overlooked when planning a wedding.  In the past, choices were fairly limited for event lights or wedding lighting. Today’s couples have started to incorporate many different lighting options to add to their wedding decor and set the mood for their guests.


Learn the lighting lingo and get to know what you need. Here are the 6 lighting terms commonly used at weddings.


Uplighting:

A lighting fixture strategically placed on the floor and pointing them up.  Uplighting is a very effective way to accent walls with color or highlight special areas.


Pin spot:

A focused beam of light that shines directly onto an object, like a centerpiece or wedding cake, as a highlight effect.


Color wash:

Basically a blanket of colored light covering an entire area to create a mood or change the look of built-in décor.


Gobos:

Circular stencils that are put over a light to project a design or pattern onto a wall, ceiling or floor. Monograms, dates and wedding motifs are popular gobo designs.


String lighting:

A strand of lights that can create a magical effect (think Christmas or market lights). An installation can be labor-intensive, but the lighting itself is fairly budget-friendly.


LED:

Short for “light-emitting diode,” LED lights use much less electricity than (and don’t get as hot as) regular incandescent lightbulbs. They can also be wireless, which makes them even more discreet. LEDs are great for color changes and vibrant hues.
