tell me a little bit about We talked last time. Quite a lot about lighting. I really recommend people go back and listen to the episode. It's Episode 291. I don't want to go over too much of the same stuff because I think you've got lots of information, but I definitely recommend. And Kevin explained a lot about about the different sorts of lighting, but also how much lighting can change a room. So if your venue is lacking in something, but you don't have as much money to maybe add a lot of shit to it lighting, do you? Like I said, I had a lot of shit to it. Kevin, that just makes your job. Sounds very glamorous. Uh, lighting can manage changing room can't or very especially like because, you know, you go to the dancing part and you, you know, people don't like to dance with the lights on, so they turn off the lights and then if the room doesn't have a really good ambient light, then what are you know, what are they looking at? You know, what does the room look like with the lights on as well as with the lights off, and I think that's something that people forget. So I'm and I don't sell candles. I'm not in the candle business, but I'm a big believer. The more candles, the better around the room and on the tables. Because once you do shut off the lights, that starts creating some ambiance. But then adding some simple up lights, just some color on the walls, you know, adding a spotlight on some key items that you want to be highlighted when the lights are off. You know, just And that's simple, easy stuff to do, you know? And then from there you go into, you know, custom monograms. Uh, you know, it's they're called go bows, but it's, uh, the pattern lights that you use or, you know, chandeliers. Any of that kind of, you know, drapery. All that kind of stuff gets, you know, enhanced, so to speak. But if you're with a limited budget, I go to go to up lights and candles, you know, and then start building what you do. So like, when I meet with our clients, I always tell them the foundation, you know, it's like we're building a house but the foundation is up lights and spotlights. And then once you once you figured out what you want to highlight with spotlights what, What you want to you know, the color, the feel you want in the room. Then you start building off of that and, you know, as the budget allows, start adding and enhancing with that kind of stuff. But you really got to start with the basics and it will make a world of difference. You will see, I see photos all the time and brides will bring them to me and they'll go. I love this photo. I just love the coloring. And all it is is a simple up like, you know, it's just like nothing special, you know? You know, in my area right now, Edison bulbs, you know, the old and, oh, they cannot buy enough of the different shapes and the different filament styles that they have now. And in the you know, whenever I find them, I by 50 to 1 100 just explain to people What if they don't know what an Edison bulb bulb is? I mean, you could just look it up on Pinterest 50 freaking million photos of Edison Bulb. Just tell us a little bit about them because they are cool. There's just an antique looking light bulb is what they are. I mean, I mean, yeah, simple as that. But what a lot of these companies are doing with them is there the filaments that you know is what provides a light. They're making different patterns. The glass bulbs themselves are different shapes. You know, we have all kinds of different. And that's what I'm saying. When I find that one we don't have, I buy a bunch of it because you know we'll have clients sometimes have us put up 50 to 100 ourselves just medicine ball. Yeah, so it's so. I love the variety, you know, they all but they have to be cohesive. They've got to go together. But if they have that antique look to them, the more the merrier. Well, it's very as you said. It's very simple and effective, and I wanted to jump back. You made a good point about the mood change with going to the dancing part of the evening. If you're having an evening wedding and how much because we're talking about timeline and how much. It's good to think about how you want that mood change throughout the evening, and we talk a lot about music and you can have background music. And even though people aren't aware of background music, it's happening in the background. And if it's not, if there's no music, people like, what is it? Quiet. What's happening? But it's the same thing with with lighting as well. If you're sitting under fluorescent stark lights eating a meal, it feels like you're in some sort of institution where if you have nice light, a light, more calming lights for dinner. But then it changes for dancing. I don't think a lot of us think about that stuff, but actually, when it works, you don't even notice it. But when it's not happening, you're like, What the fuck is going on here? Why am I sitting in bright lights? Yeah, and I think a lot of it is. Couples tour the venues in the daylight such a good point, you know, because you know, because the venues have events in the evening and when they don't have events in the evening, they're all home with their families. You know, But so if if your venue is doing any kind of like open house showcase vendor fair, any of that kind of stuff that happens in the evening go because you want to see what your venue looks like in the evening. It's, you know, with nothing. You know, bare bones, what it looks like in the evening with nothing. Because then that helps. You know, like we talked about, start building the foundation because or hire a professional, you know, like myself. I I am, you know, preferred vendor at a lot of these different venues out here, and I can tell them Hey, this is what the venue looks like in the evening with nothing, you know, And but with that said, simple up lights will go a long way. And I mean, for some of the smaller spaces 10, 15, 20 I mean, would give you a really amazing difference to the room.
