Planning a wedding can seem overwhelming! There are literally hundreds of things to consider when choosing a venue, picking colors, planning meals, and of course the reception. It’s hard to keep a handle on everything that you’ll need for your special day. Many will hire planners and on the day coordinators, but everyone is fearful they will forget something. Many have created generic list, but we have put together a list of the top 10 must-have wedding rentals, so that you can make sure you’re not forgetting anything important in this area.
Don’t Forget These Wedding Rental Items!
If you’ll be serving a meal or even just appetizers, you’ve got to have space for guests to place their food and drinks while they listen to toasts and chat. Measuring out your planned space beforehand will allow you decide on the shape of the tables and the arrangement with plenty of time to spare.
2. Seating / Chair Rentals
Naturally, guests need places to eat and places to rest once your reception begins. Chair rentals come in so many different styles. You can rent wooden aluminum chair rentals, wood resin chairs and even Chiavari chair rentals, With that said, chair rentals come in a wide array of colors, like white, silver, black, mahogany, Champaign and gold. Remember to always rent a handful more than you think you’ll need so there’s room for error—and that inevitable couple who forgot to RSVP!
3. Tent Rentals
Many couples will rent a wedding tent because they want to control their food costs and want more options with vendors. Everyone can agree nothing beats the ambiance of a tent wedding. They are very romantic and personal. Keep in mind that tent rentals are necessary not just for protection from the sun during the day, but for protection from potential rain at night. Tenting also gives you a way to hang string lights and speakers outdoors for a beautiful evening.
Many people think renting china and glassware is expensive and it is not. Don’t rely on plastic silverware at a beautiful wedding! You can get wedding rentals of beautiful, full-table settings instead for about the same cost.
If your wedding reception will be outdoors, you can’t let your guests’ high heels sink into the grass. A hard dance floor will define your space and make guests comfortable. Additionally, consider that the dance floor is in the center by the bride and groom. Splurge on a mahogany dance floor rental and watch it transform your venue.
You may need lighting for your reception and dance area, and to make photos possible after dark. Whether it’s lanterns, string lights, or something more modern, the lighting will set the mood for the event.
Think about how much money you are spending on your big day. Everyone will be snapping pictures of the wedding party and the bride and groom. Consider adding a beautiful backdrop behind the wedding party so that every picture is absolutely gorgeous.
