Summer is here in Australia and it’s the perfect time to plan outdoor events. However, you need to have the best lighting possible for it. If the event is scheduled to be held after the sun sets, the right type of lighting must be considered to set the scene, keep guests safe and make it possible to execute your event flawlessly. But, how do you know what kind of lighting is the best? 

Here are some tips to help you through the process.

    Where you need lighting

This is the most important aspect of when choosing the lighting. Make a list of places where you need lighting, for example, do you want to light up the entire event area or just provide lighting in athletic benches, bleachers, food-service area or parking areas. This decision is entirely up to you and depends on the kind of event you are hosting. Whatever area you choose to light up just keep in mind that you need to provide enough light to prevent tripping and other accidents.

    How much lighting you need

Now that you know that where you need lighting, you can easily find out how much of it you will need. It’s hard to determine exactly how much lighting you will need, but having an idea of the event space to light up can help you. If you are unsure, then good rule of thumb is to hire more lighting. That way you will be more likely to have enough as you set up for your event. Hiring lighting experts is a good choice as they will help you better determine which areas to light up and how much.

    The kind of mood you want

The type of lighting you use will help create a mood and ambience at your event, so choose wisely. If you want a cheerful mood or your event requires guests to be able to see details clearly, then floodlights are perfect. These lights let out a very bright, clean light that will bathe the entire space. If you want to add a touch of glamour, commercial festoon lighting is great. Their design makes them ideal for covering a large area since they are meant to be strung across a fence or trees or along stakes in the ground. These lights are usually waterproof, so they are perfect to use outside. Festoon lighting adds a charming, laid-back feel to your summer event.   

The right kind of lighting will take your event from ordinary to amazing and with these tips, you can set the right mood for your event and pull off a perfect summer evening.
