Westmount Brides- Lighting Question
Hello Westmount Brides! I recently booked our wedding at the Westmount Country Club and I am so excited! I have a question about lighting that maybe some of you can help me with:
We are having our reception in the Continental room. I know that room is equipped with uplighting and we will be using that. Also, in the ceiling/wall above the dance floor there is also the flashy/club-like lighting. We have not picked a DJ yet, but all of the DJs we have spoken to have told us that if we do want that lighting for the dancing portions of the night (which I think we do) we should have the DJ provide that because they can control it and they cannot control Westmount's lighting. For example, during speeches, or slow dances, we would not want the flashing lights on. I know the DJs are saying this for obvious reason, but I am wondering what other brides have done? Is it really necessary to have the DJs provide those lights, or did the Westmount lights work just fine? Did the Maitre d' control it? Also, did anyone feel that additional uplighting is necessary for the room? The lighting is on the over priced side so I would love to save money if we can!
Thank you so much! Appreciate anyone's feedback!
