A DIY Uplighting client sent in this before and after from an event at the Wyndham Resort in Virginia Beach, VA and had this to say:
"The lights were great, easy to set custom colors to match our event. The before and after pictures show the tremendous difference made in this Grand Ballroom. The lights set the mood for the whole evening!"
In this photo, you can see 3 up lights spaced out equally to highlight this head table. This photo is from an event at the Ethiopian Community Center in Alexandria, VA. If you have a very limited budget, even just 3-4 lights can add a nice effect to a small area of a larger room that you would like to highlight. If you want to light an entire room, then more like 24-36 lights would be needed.
A popular use of lighting is to accent areas of a room. Like the wedding cake area! This photo shows a nice lit up cake at the 533 club in Richmond, VA.

DIY Uplighting is a great resource if you're looking to add sophistication to your event without breaking the bank! After checking out the picture, videos, and reviews, we rented about 12 lights for our wedding and just hoped they would work as promised. We were so pleased with the ease of set-up, what it added to our event, and the easy rental process from beginning to end.
We got the exact lighting we wanted in plenty of time for our big party. It gave us the exact mood we were looking for and made the celebration complete. We will recommend you to all our friends and will most definitely use you again in the future!! Thank you!!
After using them for our school's banquet, I mentioned to a bride-to-be that she may want to consider using these for her wedding. Everything was as described on the website, and we could not have been happier with the effect and service at a reasonable price.
Website was easy to use. Everything that was needed arrived in one box. The lights added such character and dimension into the reception space. Easy to set up and easy to return. Would highly recommend to anyone doing their own lighting for an event.
So glad we used this vendor! Pricing was awesome, and ordering and returning was a breeze. One of the lights was lightly damaged in shipping, but the customer service rep we called quickly and without question apologized and made sure we weren't charged.

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!
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!
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!
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 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.
