Just because you have booked an event space or other facility that doesn’t mean that your obligation to this space has ended. Especially if you are not working with an event planner, the thought that you will be all taken care of is folly. You need to worry about every last detail, even something as small as lighting for my private party.
Flashlight: If you want to have certain areas really focused in on then something like the flashlight system is what you need to have at your private event. These are the same things which have galvanised stadium audiences for so many years and this is definitely something that you should be informed about. If your private party is a noon to night yard party in a big enough yard to warrant it then the flashlight ethos is something that you will want to consider. Even if you are not going for ‘bigger’ using the flashlight lighting credo as a model for your lighting system still makes a lot of sense.
Floodlight: If you are going for more of a broad beam of light and you think that something like the floodlight idea would make some sense, you should go with that. Floodlights work better than overhead lighting indoors just because they reach even further than an LED bulb overhead. Floodlights are also great for an outdoor event because they allow you to focus in on the spots that need to be seen like the food table and the drink table. Moreover they let you keep the things which need to be kept under less observable light be so. You don’t need a floodlight on the dance floor for example; having a floodlight for the parking area pointing away from the par it is a good idea though.
Broad Lighting: If you need something like just more broad light for your private party then maybe you don’t need to have any type of lighting system. If it’s just broad light, you may be able to get away with what lights the space currently. If it’s during the daytime you may even be able to use the light from the sun. But chances are this isn’t an option. Even if you could use the lighting that’s there currently you don’t want your guests to be feeling as though there is something missing, right? You want your light to really punctuate the things you want punctuated and highlight the spaces you want highlighted.
If you are asking yourself who will be thoughtful for the lighting for my private party you have every reason to be suspect. If you are having the party at your own home or converted venue then guess what? You are the one who needs to be concerned.
Most facilities are only as involved as they need to be. It’s not that they don’t want to be involved; it’s that just so many pioneers in the industry have come about in the past decades and really changed the game.
Now you can have any of the above listed types of lights or something totally different. If you can imagine it, chances are that one of the leaders in the industry has the capability and the desire to make your visions come to fruition. One of the leaders in the industry has been Sound Services Ltd. This team is still putting out some amazing loudspeaker systems and creating some of the most amazing light shows around; the same as their founders have been doing for many years.
