Have a galaxy themed party? Lighting can help! Here's what our customer had to say


"We cannot tell you how pleased we were with DIYUplighting!! It absolutely brought our banquet to a higher level. The seniors had chosen a galaxy theme. Since we didn't want the theme to be only at the floor level, we tried to think of ways to make the gym seem more grand to get a sense of "universe." When we found your product, we were so excited. The uplighting took the colors up the walls to the ceiling, expanding the spatial sense. On two backgrounds, we crisscrossed the lights to get a glow behind those taking pictures. The lights were perfect since the banquet colors were royal blue, purple, and hot pink, and those could be obtained with the proper settings. It made all the picture areas really "pop" with special glows.

From a service perspective, DIYUplighting is phenomenal! To get the lights ahead of the event to be able to practice with them as to placement and color gave us the effect desired. Return was simple with the prepackaged shipping label, and having an extra day or two to return them was appreciated since the day after the banquet was equitably busy for us with graduation preparations. The rental fee was very reasonable, especially since it includes the shipping costs.

We would definitely consider using DIYUplighting again. The service was great, and the lighting absolutely elevated our theme. Thank you for having a terrific product!"

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.

Pick your items and place your reservation. We'll ship everything to you so it arrives a couple days before your event. All the items are safe, easy to operate, and require no prior experience to use. When you're done, pack the items back into the boxes and drop them off with UPS using an included pre-paid shipping label.

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.

So Far, DIY Uplighting has provided rental LED lights for the following venues and cities in IL:
