Looking for a cool way to dress up the dance floor or huge empty wall at your reception venue?? Gobos are the way to go! They are an image of basically anything you want projected onto any space. Pretty cool huh? Most lighting and production companies offer them with their lighting services. We personally recommend them, especially if you have an awkward empty space that would stand out if it didn’t have anything on it. Dance floors are a very common area to have a gobo that portrays the couple’s names or initials, words or sayings, a specific design or just a simple shape.
We’ve planned weddings where gobos were used and it really adds to the ambiance of the room and only enhances the already-present lighting in the room! For example, the Winter Park Civic Center has a huge arch that takes up an entire wall in it’s indoor reception space. For this wedding, our couple decided on a gobo with their names to place in the arch, and it made a world of difference! Take a look!:
