  • The Future of LED lighting

    Posted on January 26 2017

    LEDs are shedding light, so to speak on lighting enthusiasts who felt a little in the dark. Over the last ten years, the lighting industry offered long life, efficiency, and durability features. Research engineers from Princeton illuminated another LED lighting technology path.

    The refinement of crystalline light substances, called perovskites, are more efficient and have the potential to be a lower-cost alternative to LED lighting materials currently used. A technique developed by the researchers allows the nanoscale particles to self-assemble. The perovskite-based LEDs are more durable, stable, and efficient than their predecessors.

    Smoking of any kind was certainly frowned upon at most weddings, often resulting in a designated smoking area a distance away from the ceremony.

    While there are many things to consider when planning a wedding reception, one thing that should not be overlooked is lighting. The right lighting can often determine if your reception is a party to remember or a bust.

    Time of Day

    Is your wedding reception being held at night, or during the day? If in daylight, you might consider darkening the room in some way with drapes or blinds.

You may want to start your reception later to allow for the light to be right when, for instance, dancing starts.

    Posted on February 23 2015

    A little lighting in strategic areas can go a long way towards making your wedding one to remember, and it is certainly not a place to skimp. Don’t rely on your wedding venue’s lighting options--create your own!


    The first thing most people think of when they think of wedding lighting is, of course, candles. If you want a cozy or romantic feel to your wedding, candles set the right mood. If safety is a concern, or if the venue prohibits open flames, small electric candles are a good alternative. Place these in small groups on tables or floating in small bowls of plain or colored water for a lovely centerpiece, or place in paper bags to light pathways with soft light.
