Every year, the optimal wedding season extends from late spring through early fall. If you plan to get married during this time, you should start planning now. The later you wait, the fewer options you will have when it comes to wedding rentals such as venues, wedding table rentals and other things. To help you plan the perfect wedding, here are a few things you should know about wedding rentals and other wedding planning tips.
Guest Count Should Come First
Before you can select a venue that will be the perfect fit for your big day, you need to make sure you have enough room for your guests. For this reason, figuring out the approximate number of attendees should be the first thing you do. Generally, it’s best to allow for approximately 25 square feet per guest. This may seem like a lot, but keep in mind that this space includes all tables, dancing space, etc.
Figure Out What Furniture You Want
You’ll need furniture at your event, so take some time to figure out what you need. From tables to chairs and even lounge chairs, make sure your guests have someplace to sit to eat and relax. You may even want to rent dressers or shelving units so you have more space for decorative elements.
Don’t Forget the Bar
Want to serve drinks at your event? If your venue doesn’t already come with a bar, don’t forget to rent one in advance. It doesn’t need to be huge. Just make sure it’s large enough to accommodate your attendees.
Pay Attention to the Little Details
The little details can really make things come together on your wedding day. In addition to your main table settings, add a few charming touches, such as stemless glassware or a water goblet rental. Make sure all the small details complement each other and fit in with your overall wedding theme.
Add a “Wow” Factor
When you’re choosing wedding rentals, consider adding one or two things that really stand out and demand attention. For example, a vintage trailer could be the perfect backdrop for your vintage wedding. An old-fashioned soda shack could take your rustic wedding over the top. And driving off to your honeymoon on a vintage vespa will make the crowd go wild. Look for unique items to rent that will help you make a statement and create an unforgettable impression on your guests.
Rent the Perfect Lighting
The venue you choose should have lighting already, but you may decide to add a little more character with rented lighting. From gorgeous chandeliers to understated solstice lanterns, you can find lighting that will add just the right touch of magic to your big day.
Select the Right Backdrop
A backdrop or arbor is a necessity if you’re getting married outdoors. Even if you’re getting married indoors, the right backdrop can become a beautiful focal point. Backdrops and arbors tend to get reserved early, so make your selection as soon as possible. There are many options to choose from, including wood pergolas, macramé backdrops and circle arches.
Deciding on wedding rentals can be a lot of fun. Get creative and remember that reserving early is key to getting exactly what you want.
