Lighting for tented weddings

April 14, 2021 Synergetic Case Study

Tents are a favorite thing for us to light! Since they offer such a blank canvas, we can use our creative juices to make them look stunning. Below are some key components we talk about when designing lighting for a tent.


Market Lighting- By far the most popular as of late. If you don’t have a huge budget and are looking for a simple way to bring some elegance to the tent, this is a great option.


Up lighting – We love to light up the top of the tent. Our lights can illuminate the tent in any color, even changing colors throughout the night if you prefer. We can saturate the entire tent in the colors of your choice to give you a colorful top of the tent.


Chandeliers – Sometimes adding some simple, elegant crystal chandeliers does the trick. Just make sure they are on dimmers! When the dancing starts, you don’t want the tent to be too bright.


Dance floor lighting – You spent a lot of money on your dress and a lot of time picking out the prefect tux. Make sure your guests can see you! We position the lighting to perfectly light up the place you should be all night.


Ceiling patterns – The top of the tent gives you a great area to project patterns on. This is our favorite option to include in a design. This certainly makes the pictures look fantastic.


Pin spotting – You spent a lot of money on the flowers, cake and place cards: Show them off!


Band lighting – While a lot of bands may bring their own lighting, we love to make sure they are properly illuminated. You made sure to pick the BEST band and we want to make sure they can be seen.


Bee lighting – This is quickly becoming very popular. If done correctly, this lighting design can look beautiful!


Draping – The beams of a tent give us so many ways to use drape. Why not take advantage of them. Using drape in a tent has endless possibilities.


Staging – We can provide all different sizes of stages for your band -with steps included- as well as carpeting for the top.


Other creative options – Don’t forget about the places that are NOT under the tent: Walkways, driveways, fire pits, etc. We can provide unique lighting solutions for those as well.
