10 Tips on Renting DIY Uplighting & Wedding Backdrops

Learn how to get a gorgeous look on a budget with savvy DIY wedding rentals and decoration options that can be shipped directly to your door via Ship Our Wedding! It’s beautiful, simple, and affordable!

Before you finalize your wedding decoration rentals, think about contacting your venue to make sure they’re on board with all of your ideas. Most locations are flexible.

1. Chat with your venue to learn what’s allowed.

Although lights and uplights can both accent a wedding reception, their purposes are different. Lights, like string lights, tend to hang overhead and offer the purpose of adding light to a rustic space.

2. There’s a difference between lighting and uplighting.

If you have ever attended a wedding reception or seen photos from a party and noticed a monogram on a wall or dance floor, odds are it wasn’t adhered to either spot.

3. Wedding monograms are not adhered to walls or dance floors – it’s lighting!

Backdrops can help to soften a space’s interior, and lighting can create an ambiance you can not achieve with the venue’s existing lighting.

Make sure to measure before you add rentals to your cart and pay your deposit. You’ll want to know what size backdrop will fit behind your sweetheart table and how large the backdrop should be to create a partition between your ceremony and reception space.

4. Before you order, make sure to measure (and count)!

Instead of hiring a local vendor, now you can do it yourself by renting a backdrop, drapery, and even uplights! Ship Our Wedding has affordable bundles that include all three services.

5. Rent backdrops, draping & wedding uplighting.
