An excellent post by Emily Widle from the Pegasus Lighting Blog.
A New York Times article recently described a trend in wedding planning involving a focus on lighting design. The couple featured in the article hired a lighting company to project a personalized “logo” onto the dance floor and onto the bride’s gown during the reception.
There’s certainly no question that wedding budgets can range from shoestring to extravagant. The most expensive wedding to date cost $60 million, according to Forbes Magazine. It was the union of Vanisha Mittal (daughter of billionaire Lakshmi Mittal) and investment banker Amit Bhatia back in 2004. Just to give you an idea: The six-day celebration was held on a 17th-century French chateau, invitations were sent out in a 20 page book made of silver, and the wine tab came out to $1.5 million.
Now, back to lighting design. Do you think it deserves a prominent place in the average wedding budget (which was approximately $24,070 in 2010)?
