FAQ's

HOW MANY L.E.D UP LIGHTS WILL I NEED?

There are many factors when it comes to deciding how many up-lights you will need for your venue in order to achieve best results. Bellow is the most common way we would calculate how many fixture we might need.

A. Does your venue have any columns, arches?

Generally if any of these architectural objects exist the rule of thumb is: 1 (one) fixture under each column, and 2 (two) fixtures under each side of arches. Sometimes you might want to add 1 (one) fixture in between columns or arches that are separated by a wall section in order to give the room a more enhanced look/effect.

B. Sometimes we don't have any of the architectural objects such as walls, or arches as described above. Instead we have flat walls or sections of walls. In this scenario we usually place 1 (one) fixture every 6-12 feet depending on how full you want the room to look. And up to 2 (two) fixtures under each wall section. 

 

WHY IS THERE A MINIMUM OF 12 UP LIGHTS?

We have a minimum of 12 up lights because we want to make sure your room makes an impact, and sets the right mood. If you use less than 12 up lights in 98% of the venues, the room will usually look as if you do not have any up lighting at all. In order to achieve the "WOW" factor that every couple is looking for, you will usually need 12 up lights in almost all cases.

 

HOW MUCH DEPOSIT DO I NEED TO PLACE?

A 25% non refundable deposit payment is required to book our services.

 

WHEN IS THE REMAINING BALANCE DUE?

All remaining balances are due two weeks prior to event date, unless cerain arrangements are approved by Up Lights LA.

 

HOW MANY COLORS ARE AVAILABLE, AND CAN I HAVE MIXED COLORS?

A. With our LED up-light fixtures the colors to choose from are endless, we can create any shade of any color that exists.

B. YES! You can either have static mixed colors that remain the same throughout the night, or we can include a technician for an additional fee, who will control the lights throughout the night to your specifications. The fixtures can also create beautiful chase effects, and even dance to music!

 

HOW LONG DOES SETUP AND TEAR DOWN TAKE?

Setting up can vary between 1-4 hours depending on the amount of lights and how much programming is required. Tearing down after the event usually takes not more than 1-2 hours.

 

CAN I COME SEE A SETUP AT ANOTHER EVENT?
