Unlike before, when you had to buy everything you needed for a wedding, making the affair too expensive, you can now rent most of the things you need for your big day from event rentals.
To help you out, here are 6 things to hire for weddings:
Most weddings happen in summer and instead of cooping in your guests in a church hall, let them enjoy the beautiful outdoor weather by having an outdoor wedding.
As much as you want the guests to enjoy being outside, you don’t want them to be uncomfortable, so you should shield them from the scorching sun and strong winds using a wedding tent.
The wedding tent you rent depends on the number of guests for your big day. If you expect many guests, go for a large tent and vice versa.
In some cases, you might need several tents. For example, besides the main tent, you might also need a marquee entrance tent, catering tent, DJ booth tent, and others.
Regardless of the size and number of tents you get, ensure that they match the theme of your wedding. The last thing you want is one of the tents looking off, giving your event a confused look.
Tables and chairs
You need tables and chairs to sit during the ceremony, reception, and cocktail hour. You also need tables and chairs for the musicians to sit and rest their instruments.
You also need a table to place your gifts, cards, cake, desserts, and favors.
There are many types of tables and chairs you can choose for your big day, but for the best look, combine tables and chairs that look great together. For example, pair cross-back chairs with long farm tables for the farm look.
You can also pair modern square tables with ghost chairs or round tables with Chiavari chairs, for the exquisite modern look.
If you are operating on a tight budget, go for banquet chairs, folding chairs, or chair covers.
If you aren’t sure about the right tables and chair combination to go with, consult your venue coordinator or the technicians from the party rental company you rented your supplies from.
You definitely need flowers when you are having a formal wedding. While you can get away with plastic flowers, real fresh flowers stand out. To hold them properly and ensure they look the part, you have to put them properly.
Some of the best items to put the flowers in include: vessels, vases, aisle marker stands, rent arches, votive candles, and others.
Like with the chairs and tables, if you aren’t sure about the right items to get, get the input of a professional.
No wedding is complete without dancing, is there? And it’s not wise to have the guests dancing on grass so you should get them a dance floor. The size of the dance floor you get depends on the number of guests you will be having.
Industry standards dictate that each guest should have at least four and a half square feet of dancing space, so you should calculate the amount of space you need, depending on the number of guests you are expecting.
While wood is the most popular dance floor type, there are plenty of other options you can go with—it all depends on the theme of your event.
Glassware, flatware, and dinnerware
Your guests need to eat and drink, so you need to provide the necessary place settings. Since it’s unnecessary to buy the items, rent them.
Some of the rentals you need include: forks, serving plates, spoons, red and white wine glasses, highball glasses, coffee mugs, knives, water glasses, and champagne glasses.
If you are offering special foods and drinks, remember to provide plates and glasses for that too.
If you have your event in an area with no restrooms, you need to rent restrooms from party rentals Rockland NY. As you are renting, ensure that the restrooms are clean and spacious.
These are some of the things you should rent when having a wedding. While at it, don’t forget to rent air conditioners, heaters, pitchers to serve drinks, and other smaller items.
