I’ll admit, when a client utters the words “DIY” I do get a little worried. Not that I’m afraid of a little crafting or that I don’t love the way some DIYing can look, because I do! But I digress, there is a whole other post here about why I don’t think you should try to DIY your whole wedding, (hint hint, it has something to do with stress and time management). So, when a client said to me that she wanted to use a DIY lighting company I had never heard of I told her “ok, let’s try it for that great price”, but I was worried and I told her that too! Luckily she had a great attitude and an adventurous spirit and we ordered uplighting from Superlative Events for her wedding. The company is local, so we felt good about the lights being shipped to us since they were not coming from a distance that I couldn’t drive to in case of emergency. We had them shipped to the venue. They came in a carrying case (a heavy one, but it had wheels) with exact directions inside on what to do. There was also a video online that we could watch. We got them out the night before and tested them and it was super easy. The day of the wedding, I was able to set them up for my client, turn them on and viola, beautiful uplights, no lighting technician needed, just little old me! At the end of the night I packed them up and we sent them back the next day. So easy, such a great price and so worth it! I highly highly recommend trying out Superlative Events if you are interested in doing your own uplighting. They offer a great service. was so pleased as was the couple!
