Every week, bride and grooms ask us about LED walls or Video walls for their special day.  So as leaders in the sound and lighting space I thought I’d explain why couples in 2022 and beyond are using LED walls more often. 

 

 

What is an LED Wall?

 

So What is an LED wall? A LED video wall is a large backdrop, usually 10 feet by 20 feet or larger of connected screens or flat panel displays that form one big TV screen. 

 

It’s very common at weddings, both western and Indian weddings for many reasons. Not all video walls are created equal and knowing just a little bit can save you thousands of dollars, which I’ll explain now. 

 

 

 

This is roughly the scale you'd expect.
 

Typical Use Cases for an LED Wall at Weddings

 

At most of the weddings we do in Ohio, Michigan, Chicago and other parts of America, LED walls are used for:

 

  • Backdrops  (the main reason): You’ll see couples often have a soft, cloudy/dreamy backdrop during the start of their reception and then later as the party gets heated that turns into nightclub laser and light displays. 

  • Slideshow of pictures of the couples from childhood to their journey or beyond

  • Same Day Edit or Promotional Videos

  • Live video display of the party as it’s happening (e.g a close up of the best man giving a speech)

  • Brand Reinforcement (just showing “Chanel” or your wedding hashtag prominently to nudge people to use it)

  • Step and Repeats (the logos you see celebrities standing in front of often at a press event)

 

Benefits of an LED wall at your wedding

There are so many benefits of a LED video wall that it’s almost a no brainer these days.  However for folks who are still unsure, the most common are:

 

  • Modular: You can increase the size of the wall based on if another 50 guests confirm at the last minute, as it’s just a series of smaller screens connected together.  

  • Updatable: Do you have a last minute slideshow?  Want to show a powerpoint or video messages from guests who couldn’t make it? Anything you can play on a laptop can be played on the screen for your guests with crystal clear clarity. 

  • No More Projectors: People walking in between the screen and the projector, overheating, errors with video files and computer connections are less relevant with LED walls. 

  • Beautiful: Some LED walls are so crisp and clear guests don’t even realize it’s a screen! They just think those are actual drapes or stage design! Imagine!

What kind of LED wall do you need?

 

Depending on how far your tables are from the stage, the amount of people at your wedding and your stage design, your LED video wall size and costs will vary. 

 

Below is a rough guide so you can size appropriately: 

 

  • 100 Person Wedding Reception: 6 Feet High, 10 Feet Wide. 

  • 200 - 300 Person Wedding Reception: 10 Feet High by 16 Feet Wide  

  • 300  - 400 Person Wedding Reception:  10 Feet High by 20 Wide

  • 400+ Person Wedding Reception:  10 Feet High by 30 Wide

 

 

 

 

How Much Does an LED wall cost for a wedding?

Pricing for a LED screen or wall rental varies based on size and other factors.

 

  • 100 Person Wedding Reception: 6 Feet High, 10 Feet Wide.  Costs around $6,000 for a 5 hour event with a 3-4 hour setup time.
