WHY IS LIGHTING IMPORTANT?:

Lighting makes up one-half of the most essential elements of décor at The Bordone. Your wedding florals should complete the other half.

A perfect balance of lighting and florals are the key ingredients needed for a visually stunning event in this space. If it is the use of candles often provided by your florist or lighting fixtures rented from our company, a perfect balance will ensure the beauty of your florals and this venue are still visible after the sun goes down.

Here are a few lighting tips for the different locations at The Bordone:

The Bordone LIC – 3rd Floor:

The Bordone LIC - 3rd Floor - Main Reception Room
THE MAIN ROOM (3rd Floor):
STRING LIGHTS IN ZIGZAGGING PATTERN
  • Don’t overlook a simple arrangement of our String Lights hanging in a zigzagging pattern between the 1st and 2nd  terrace doorway in The Main Room. This timeless lighting pattern compliments the main room and visually provides “more bang for fewer bucks.”
STRING LIGHTS IN PARALLEL LINES
  • Also, consider String Lights hanging in parallel lines between the 1st and 2nd terrace doorway in The Main Room. This timeless lighting pattern compliments the main room and visually provides “more bang for fewer bucks.”
UP-LIGHTING AGAINST WALLS
  • Consider placing Warm White Up-Lights along the perimeter walls of the 3rd-floor reception room.
  • Consider placing Warm White Up-Lights at the base of the three center columns of the 3rd-floor reception room.
SPOTLIGHT ON LARGE FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS
  • Highlight a sizeable floral arrangement with a spotlight. The Bordone’s in-house recessed ceiling lights provide general room light, but they are not ideal for highlighting a large floral arrangement. Consider including a spotlight from our company if your florist provides a large-scale floral installation.
SPOTLIGHT ON BAND MEMBERS
  • Don’t overlook spotlighting the members of your band. A set of warm white lights will go far in highlighting members of your band after sunset. You can also consider a set of color-changing lights to highlight your band members. An individual will need to operate a controller to change the colors during their performance.
SPOTLIGHT ON THE BAR
  • Don’t forget to spotlight your bar(s) in The Main Room. Your bar is a gathering place for guests to exchange conversations and laughs while waiting to receive their drinks. The bar is almost a celebrity in popularity and will demand illumination. 
SPOTLIGHT FOR THE CEREMONY
  • Help make your indoor ceremony area stand out with a pair of spotlights. Spotlighting your ceremony is especially important during the fall and winter due to early sunset.
PINSPOT YOUR CAKE TABLE
  • You can consider providing a pin-spot for your cake table in the main room.

Note: Don’t overlook the use of candles. Our company does not provide candles for decoration, but you can place an extensive arrangement of candles along the window ledges. 

The Bordone LIC – 3rd Floor (Terrance):

THE TERRACE (3rd Floor):
STRING LIGHTS IN ZIGZAGGING PATTERN
  • An arrangement of 300ft of our String Lights hanging in a zigzagging pattern over most of the 3rd-floor Terrace. This timeless lighting pattern looks terrific against the NYC skyline.
  • An arrangement of 200ft of our String Lights hanging in a zigzagging pattern over half of the 3rd-floor Terrace. 
STRING LIGHTS IN A V-SHAPED PATTERN
  • A budget-friendly option is an arrangement of 150ft of our String Lights hanging in a V-Shaped pattern over the 3rd-floor Terrace.
STRING LIGHTS SUSPENDED ALONG PERIMETER WALL
SPOTLIGHT ON LARGE FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS

SPOTLIGHT ON THE BAR
  • Don’t forget to spotlight your bar(s) on the Terrace if you don’t have any String Lights hanging along the perimeter walls or overhead.
SPOTLIGHT FOR AN OUTDOOR LOUNGE
