Wedding Rentals & Décor
Setting up a wedding in a non-traditional location will require you to rent a number of items. It is NOT cheaper to host a wedding in Grandma Gale’s back yard as opposed to a hotel – but it is more unique and may fit your style so much better.
Make an appointment with the rental company early on in the planning stage. Go visit and then listen to what they have to say. They can tell you what you need and remind you of things you will have forgotten or not even thought of when preparing for an outdoor garden wedding. Make your decisions, make a deposit and then be sure to finalize a minimum of 2 weeks out.
Rental companies are not a bottomless pit! Don't wait until the last week to decide if you need a tent, or 200 chairs. While a large rental company might have 20 tents, on your weekend there might be a 100+ weddings going on in your area. You MUST rent early, confirm and pay or your guests could be standing in the hot sun or the rain with no tent or chairs.
Things to consider:
- Tents, for rain and for sunshine – do you want a liner, chandeliers, market lights, uplights?
- Standing fans or heaters.
- Tables and chairs.
- Linens, china, glassware and flatware.
- Bar set ups.
- Catering stations.
- Décor items – arches, overhead décor.
