Grosh’s Backdrops Do.

When backdrops and drapery are being used in a public space (theater, auditorium, school, convention hall, etc.), it is the responsibility of the user of the backdrops to ensure the safety of attendees.

Five Tips for Transforming a Venue into a Dream Wedding

Five Tips for Transforming a Venue into a Dream Wedding

Jul 17, 2013

There is something really spectacular about before and after transformation. Transforming a venue into a breathtaking wedding experience is truly an art form.  Here are the top five tips we found for doing so.

Light the Room According to Features – Lighting is an amazing tool. You can highlight your favorite parts of the venue while hiding the less-appealing features. For instance, if you love the Gothic columns throughout the room, placing a light at their bases will emphasize their details. Hate the floral rug? Project a pattern on the ceiling to draw eyes upward, or call guests’ attention to the dance floor by shining your monogram or motif onto it. You can also change the mood of the space with color washes. Intense ambers and reds let guests know it’s time to party, while cool blues and purples set a soothing, sophisticated vibe. Use lighting to enhance themed backdrops and scenic designs. Most venues don’t provide lighting, so you’ll need an outside lighting designer. It can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand, depending on how many effects you want but it will undoubtedly have the most transformative effect on your venue.
