Nothing says “party” more than having LED wedding signs for your big day. It started as a wedding trend a few years ago that eventually became a staple. Having custom LED lights at gatherings provides a different element to a party.
More than just great backdrop lighting, having LED neon signs can also provide a background for multiple photo opportunities. This can also be customized to show the official hashtag of a wedding, which will glow throughout the night. Let's take a look at how these signs can provide an impact on a wedding.
Ways Wedding LED Signs Make An Impact On A Special Occasion
Fills The Room
A bright and eye-catching sign can make a venue full by directing everyone’s attention to the center - particularly the bride and groom. At the same time, it can also change the mood of a simple-looking room to a more interesting one given the bright and colorful light it produces.
Additionally, if you’re organizing a 50’s Americana-themed wedding or a 60’s British feel, the LED lights will bring the entire room together and stitch the party well.
LED neon lights can serve many purposes. Besides giving a unique piece for people to see at a reception, the bride and groom can take it to their house. They can use it as a remembrance of their wedding and can serve as a charming wall piece for their living rooms or bedrooms.
In modern interior design, designers try to incorporate neon light signs in modern homes to give a stunning piece to someone’s house.
Alternatively, these eye-catching signs can also be used as a marker for guests to see at an event. A sign that says “Happily Ever After” or “Mr. & Mrs.” can be a great addition to a wedding to direct guests where to go or confirm that a wedding is being held at that venue.
Wedding planners and DIY brides can also have a custom LED wedding sign to convey a message, statement, or the names of the newlyweds instead of generic messages.
Perfect For Intimate Gatherings
For intimate gatherings of 50 people or less, LED wedding signs impact a venue the most. They can shine bright and give an accent to the center stage when the house lights are dimmed to bring the attention of the people more to the bride and groom and make the room relaxing and more pleasant as well.
Lighting plays an important role in events like these. It is one of the most overlooked things people forget when preparing. What most people don’t see is that lights (whichever form they may be) highlight the important details of a stage setup and even controls the tone and mood of a room.
LED signs can help impact a wedding through energy consumption. Original neon signs when they were first invented used fluorescent bulbs that go through mercury-discharged tubes and produced ultraviolet lights which made them glow.
With the newer technology now, people have invented glowing signs that use light-emitting diodes or LEDs which are more energy efficient and are easily customizable because of the different color options available.
In addition to the efficiency of using LEDs, they are also cheaper which brought the price down significantly. For a custom-made LED sign, it would go around $100-$250, depending on the design and how many lights are used.
Although there are battery-operated LED signs in the market, people still often use outlet-powered ones so the sign can be lit up for an entire evening without any worries.
Lastly, LED wedding signs can be used as perfect event draping and backdrops. When placed behind the sweetheart table of the bride and groom, they will have an incredible backdrop that will surely appear in every photo taken of them for the entire night.
If you’re not using it on the center stage, you can hang these signs on a different stage or wall and use them for a designated photo spot.
They will look astounding in any kind of camera so people won’t have to worry about waiting for the wedding photos from the photographer since they will pop out on selfies and phone cameras as well.
Adding LED neon signs to a wedding setup can contribute a lot to the design. It can provide a modern yet timeless look that can add a lot to the wedding decor.
By using LEDs instead of fluorescent bulbs, you can cut costs in terms of buying the items and through the electricity bill, especially if you’re planning a DIY wedding at your venue.
Lastly, these signs can be reused for different purposes even after the wedding itself. Wherein you can hang it on your living room wall as a cute reminder of the day you tied the knot.
