Anyone who’s ever calculated a wedding budget can agree to how quickly the elements of the event add up. Thankfully, wedding rental companies exist so that you don’t have to go out and pick hundreds of place settings or buy an absurd amount of Edison bulbs. With the diverse offerings and specialized styles of today, there’s nearly nothing that can’t be borrowed for your big day.
Setting The Table
Farm tables or round tables? Benches or chairs? When it comes to choosing the specifics of eating arrangements, keep the size and style of your celebration in mind. For example, if you’re envisioning a casual, rustic outdoor evening, you can skip tablecloths for your farm tables – just don’t forget the napkins! For more of a formal affair, you’ll want to even consider seat covers. You may also need to rent dishes, glassware, and flatware, unless they’re included in your catering agreement.
Rather than spending your weekends scouring vintage stores for signature pieces, wedding rental companies have already curated collections of accent tables, lounge seating, and more. The big statement-makers aren’t the only pieces for rent, either. Many offer the candelabras, vases, serving trays, and other accessories to complete your tablescape.
Outdoor celebrations always run a bit more of a risk, so it’s important to ensure that your guests will be covered. Tents are a functional and stylish way to create a cozy atmosphere for attendees and ward off any unwelcome weather. Be sure to check with your venue for any permitting issues before renting.
Depending on where you plan to host your reception, you may need to supply a dance floor before your guests can get their groove on. When selecting a size, go with a generous square footage — just in case even the shyest of guests decide to join in on the Cupid Shuffle.
