What are Uplights?
Uplights refer to lighting equipment used to light up walls in wedding venues from floor to ceiling. These lights are capable of completely transforming venues from plain rooms to stunningly colorful spaces. The lights can be set to any color preferred by the wedding planner or bride & groom to complement other decorations or even the bride and bridesmaids’ dresses.
In the past uplights were made of bulky lighting fixtures with light bulbs and covered by color gels to give out the required light color. These required professional installation and would consume a lot of electricity due to the nature of the bulbs used. To change the color of these traditional uplights referred to as Par Cans; one had to change the color gels. Today technology has improved the design of uplights. Modern uplights are made of numerous LED’s that can produce a variety of different colors as per the user’s preference.
