Good lighting can make or break the party
Regardless of whether you’re planning an indoor or outdoor event, lighting creates that little something extra special that’ll have the party rocking. Get the lights wrong, however… and you might end up with an empty dance floor!

Your photographer will thank you for it
Photographers crave good lighting. Proper lighting will ensure that your photographs turn out looking amazing, so do yourself (and your photographer) a favour and get some lights!
Consider lighting for different stages of the party
It’s important to consider different styles of lighting for different times of the night. A strobe light, some LEDs and some wild lasers may be perfect for when the party is in full-swing, however it probably won’t really be conducive to a welcoming environment let’s say, at 6pm.
To avoid having to use your boring hallway lights for the early hours of the party, consider adding some stylish mood lighting like slow colour changing cans, water waves, a bar wash or even a mirror ball. These are subtler in their energy but add endless amounts of vibe to a party. This will create a fantastic atmosphere for the early stages of the night and will help to get your guests in the mood for more.
