As a leader in event planning and entertainment throughout Washington D.C., Virginia, and the mid-Atlantic area, we’ve seen what it takes to make a great event even greater. It takes a special touch and eye toward detail. It takes knowing how to wow a crowd without overwhelming them.
It takes simplistic innovations.
At the crux of any successful event is the perfect lighting. If your event is overly lit, it won’t feel welcoming or magical. If it’s not lit enough, you risk alienating your guests. And while much time, money, and effort can (and likely should) go into such lighting aspects as bar washes, spotlighting, texture lighting and more, there is a different type of “lighting” that might make your wedding, celebration, or milestone event a truly unique experience.
It’s all about the glow.
While most people are at least somewhat familiar with glow sticks, the glow industry has expanded to include nearly every type of glow product, all or any of which might work for your upcoming event.
Glow mouth pieces are extremely popular with younger kids, but can make for some unforgettable photographs, even at the most formal of weddings.
Glow balls help bring interactive entertainment to your party. Turn out the lights and let your guests toss the glow ball around, from one end of the dance floor to another.
Glow necklaces, bracelets, wristbands, glasses (yes, glow glasses) and even glow bunny ears all make for a great way to inject light-hearted humor to your event. Children, adults, and even grandparents can’t help but smile when they see themselves shine in various colors.
Depending on the type of event you’re hosting, you might want to step up your glow game a couple of notches.
What, exactly, do we mean? Well, by now you might have discovered that there is no limit to the type of glow product that can be made or imagined. Sure, it all begins with the glow stick, and we strongly encourage you to add those sticks to your glow-light arsenal.
However, if you’re looking to be even more unique than others, then we recommend you take a look at something as fun, interactive and, well, ingenious, as glow golfing.
Imagine that: setting up a tiny putting green at your corporate or wedding party, lit by a line of glow sticks. You’d use glow tees and glow ball to light your way, and a few sticks around your target hole to help you with your shot.
Glow golf is just one example of the things you can do with glow products. And you don’t have to wait for someone else to come up with a specific product (like glow golf balls) to get creative with your glow lights.
You can use your glow lights in so many ways:
* As centerpieces
* As a replacement for tossing rice (just be careful!)
* Inside mason jars, alongside (or in place) of candles
* Strung across the rafters
* Use small bracelets as a way to roll-up your guests’ silverware
We are proponents of getting creative and thinking outside the box when it comes to planning your big wedding or celebration. But we also know how important it is to be careful with your planning. We’ve seen it time and time again: folks like an idea and go over the top.
We strongly suggest you tastefully introduce glow lights into your event. If you add too many glow lights, you’ll risk disturbing the overall ambiance of the setting.
How do know how many glow lights is the right amount? That’s where Planet DJ Productions comes into play. Our wedding and party planners will help you design the best party for you and your guests, including helping you decide how many glow lights could and should work for your needs.
