Pinspot lighting will enhance your big day

Now that you and your partner have recited your vows, gifted each other stunning wedding rings, and made your grand exit, it’s time to celebrate your nuptials. Your reception is the perfect time for you and your partner to enjoy the festivities, form bonds between new and old friends and family, and especially honor your new formed bond to each other.

There are many wonderful things that you both have put together to make this day your own. A decadent cake, dazzling centerpieces, and dessert table are important landmarks for your reception. You can bring much deserved attention to them with pinspot lighting.

Here at I Thee Wed, we know that your hard work and special wedding elements deserve to be highlighted. That’s why we have put together a few reasons as to why pinspot lighting will enhance your big day. If this intrigues you, be sure to keep reading to learn more:

·         What is pinspot lighting anyway? Pinspot lighting is a light fixture, meant to bring focus to an object or area, with a beam of warm light. Arguably, it is an art form, as it makes your focal points glow with stunning illumination. This allows your guests to find specific points in your venue and brightens them for all to see. These light fixtures are perfect for making a statement or creating a dramatic display.
·         Will my centerpieces benefit from it? Ultimately, this depends on what type of centerpiece you have and the lighting for your big day. For an evening wedding or reception, pinspot lighting is perfect. This is also true if your indoor venue has no windows or natural lighting. If your centerpiece is large and elaborate, floral, or very expensive, surely it will benefit from pinspot lighting. It will allow your guests to see all the beautiful details you have created within your centerpiece and they will be able to get a better view of just how lovely they are. However, if your centerpiece consists of candles or its own lighting, pinspot lighting is likely not a good fit.
·         Is this going to hurt my wallet? The cost for pinspot lighting is dependent on a few factors. Labor is a huge factor into the cost. Allowing adequate time for your company to set up is key to ensuring that you don’t have to pay more laborers for set up. The location of your venue is also another factor. More travel distance means more travel cost. The most obvious factor is how many pinspot lights you will need.

Lighting is certainly an element that can create a gorgeous atmosphere for your big day. Here at I Thee Wed, we believe that every wedding should be gorgeous, and certainly planned to perfection!

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.

So, when you begin visiting venues and you learn that a venue has an event coordinator who tells you that you do not need to hire a wedding coordinator/planner, ask them if they will show up at the hotel while you and your girls are getting ready earlier in the day. Ask if they will be with you …

Emily + Tom

One of the perks of being in this business as a planner is the opportunity that we're given to really get to know our clients. I worked with such a special family last season and felt privileged and honored to be their planner. I felt like "one of the family" with this bride's family. The closeness and openness they have with each other and the way they are enjoying life is so refreshing and inspiring. They possess a unique family closeness that I can only hope for with my family as my children grow older. Emily was so easy-going and appreciative when it came to planning her wedding, as well as with the particulars that her mom and dad expressed. Her groom Tom was equally as expressive. These two are so much in love and I had so much fun working with them!

I love this pic of the girls kissing their mama!

In case you're wondering what this is, they are "Rolling on the River"!
