Uplighting or Fog Effects?

Lynnie, on January 28, 2020 at 11:09 AM Posted in Wedding Reception 0 42

Which dynamic effect would you choose to visually upgrade your reception?? Would you rather use colored uplighting to totally transform the space? Or would you rather use fog effects to dramatically change the mood for your first dance?


Which reception upgrade would you rather have?

    I'd prefer the fog! I'm not a huge fan of uplighting personally

    I had to make this exact decision. My wedding planner took it upon her self to choose for
    Me and y’all me later when it was way too late for me to change it. I prefer the fog but she chose the up lighting and the lights with our names

    We're having the uplighting, but I wouldn't mind the fog for our first dance.

    I prefer the fog effect; but we likely won’t have any dancing, so it’s a moot point. Haha

    I'd say uplighting if it fits your venue and your style. I'm not really a fan of either and neither one fits our vision.

    We have uplighting with the venue and I would have chosen that over fog.

    Uplighting, I guess? Fog seems a little theatrical. We don't need either as our reception is outside.

    I think uplighting, as that can make a difference to any venue.

    For me, fog indoors just seems odd.

    I think I'd go with the fog. FH and I are going to try to have his football announcer (he works in sports marketing) record our intro with the full football effect, so the fog would be awesome with that!

    Definitely uplighting. Fog isn't our style.

    We would definitely prefer the uplighting to be honest.
