DJ Lighting Ideas for an Epic Dance Party!

Looking for ideas to set the mood for an epic dance party?  Lighting is a great way to transform any venue.  Here are some of our favorite ideas from our favorite DJs.

1. Gobo Lighting

 DJ Mike with My Bridal DJ in southern California uses gobo lighting to create a personalized backdrop for the dance floor.  This is a great way to make your clients feel like VIPs with their names in lights! Thanks to new technology, you don’t need to plan weeks in advance to create this look. Rent My Wedding will make your custom gobo same-day.  Our prices are super low so that you can mark up the rate to clients. The complete gobo lighting package is just $99, which includes the custom artwork, gobo disc, gobo projector, and free shipping both ways.

2. Uplighting

 Uplighting is not just for the dance floor!  DJ Hans with NICE Entertainment in Atlanta uses uplighting around the entire room to makeover basic banquet halls into epic dance parties.  He places wireless uplights 10 feet apart around the room.  The nice thing about wireless uplighting is that you don’t have to worry about power cords – just set the lights on the floor around the room, and you’re done!  Rent My Wedding offers DJs wireless uplighting for $24/each + free shipping nationwide.


3. Blisslights / Starry Night Lighting

Looking for something different on the dance floor?  Check our starry night lighting – aka Blisslights. This effect uses slowly moving lasers that look like stars along with blue clouds.  Morningstar Studios used this dramatic look for a high energy party!  Rent My Wedding offers DJs starry night lighting for $99/each + free shipping nationwide.
