Frequently Asked Questions

While uplights can help accentuate the mood, atmosphere and spice up the quality of you reception hall or wedding venue, they are not 100% necessary. However, with that in mind - if you don't want the upfront costs of buying uplights, consider renting them or borrowing them instead. Renting uplights is the most cost effective way to own them!

While it is possible to have too many uplights (and too little) at your wedding, there are ways you can really spice up the wedding ambiance with a few cool neat tricks. You can consider using a monogram combined with uplights to create an exquisite design on the ceiling or walls. You can also use a smoke machine or chandelier to give more life to the lights as well! While uplights can seem slightly dull, with a little ingenuity - you can really spice up your event!

One of our clients who rented our products did a great combination of uplights, marquee letters and a photo booth to create a really amazing spot for wedding guests to take pictures.

The marquee lights are each approximately 21" high. The width varies by letter. This size works great for making a bold statement at your event while also allowing for easy shipping and set-up. These giant letters will be the life of your party!

The best LED uplights depend on multiple factors. The main factors are (but not exclusively): Mood, size of the room, color accent of the room and atmosphere of the event.

While the nomenclature may seem obvious (downlights illuminate downward, and uplights illuminate upward) there are also some very subtle differences when it comes to uplights vs. downlights. Uplights will usually create more ambient light, especially in a room with high ceilings or outdoors. While downlights are better for focusing light on an object or a particular place. So for example, the bride and groom dinner settings in a reception hall.

Each marquee character has hooks on the back that allows it to be hung on a wall. For standing the lights on a table or stage, we highly recommend adding our weighted bases. Many characters will not stand up straight without the bases (example: "F") but could be leaned against a wall for stability.

We're currently allowing FREE changes to orders. Just let us know (before we ship) if you need to add/remove items or update your event date. If your event is canceled, you can apply your full deposit to another reservation within the following 18 months.
