Light­box Wed­dings

The Pho­tog­ra­pher says: In my opin­ion, the stage is more im­por­tant. If the aisle is elab­o­rately dec­o­rated, the stage should have a grander setup, be­cause there needs to be a grad­ual build-up to the main cen­tre­piece of the wed­ding, which is typ­i­cally the stage. In other words, the dé­cor of the aisle should set the ex­pec­ta­tion of what is to come, which are the main events and cel­e­bra­tions of the wed­ding that will be tak­ing place on­stage.

Hence, it’s im­por­tant to fine­tune de­tails such as the po­si­tion of dec­o­ra­tions, cakes and glass tow­ers that are placed on the stage, as well as the ball­room’s light­ing con­di­tion, which will in turn de­ter­mine if the said stage fix­tures will be af­fect­ing the visibility of the cou­ple in pic­tures taken when they are up on stage.

Our Fairy­tale Wed­ding

The Wed­ding Plan­ner says: Be­tween the two, a grand stage tri­umphs in set­ting the scene for the din­ner.

When guests first walk into the venue, their fo­cus would nor­mally be to­wards the stage, while the aisle and ta­ble cen­tre­piece decor com­ple­ment it. And to­gether, they will cre­ate the over­all look and feel of the wed­ding.

Also, guests will be mostly seated through­out the evening and those whose ta­bles are fur­ther from the aisle would prob­a­bly not have a clear view of the decor along the aisle.

On the other hand, ev­ery­one will be able to see what’s on the stage since it will be the main area of the evening where most of the ac­tiv­i­ties and photo tak­ing will take place.

The Videog­ra­pher says: A grand walk-in aisle would be our choice, maybe be­cause it’s a job haz­ard for us. We’re al­ways more tuned in on how the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the au­dio and vis­ual will up the ante of a grand en­trance.

When the ball­room doors open, the aisle would be the first vis­ual fea­ture that will catch the eyes of guests and that they will ex­pe­ri­ence as they en­ter the hall and walk down it to their ta­ble. More­over, it will be mem­o­rable as their “en­trance” is usu­ally ac­com­pa­nied by back­ground mu­sic.

Thus, this is why a bridal cou­ple typ­i­cally puts great ef­fort into choos­ing their march-in sound­track, which will be in­cluded in their mem­ory of their first march as hus­band and wife.
