Like any good BAB, you’ve budgeted down to the most minute detail: Stationery, transportation, photography, bar, food, officiant, gifts, sound system, chairs, tables … seems to all be there.

But wait, what about lighting? Have you checked the sitch at your venue? Does your back yard have enough glow? Are the fluorescents at your reception hall too harsh?

Uplighting can be a dubious creature, my friends. And it is pretty key to nabbing those baller pics you yearn so hard for. But don’t worry,  DIY Uplighting can shed some {ahem} light on the solution.

Rather than shell out beaucoup bucks for local lighting rental and setup, DIY Uplighting will ship lights to you a few days before your big day (for free!). Nab a trusted groomsmen or b-maid to help with the setup and BOOM! For as little as a $25 deposit and $19 per light, you can ditch the harsh fluorescents for these professional quality, energy efficient LED lights and bask in the glow of your wedding day. Check out the video below for deets on how easy it is to get the ball rollin’!

No matter if you’re in California or Kalamazoo, DIY Uplighting will make sure you aren’t left in the dark for your first dance. Bonus! The lights come in a variety of colors, so you can add a colorful glow to your venue in the hue of your choosing! Huzzah!
