Essential Wedding Supplies to Rent
There are quite a few wedding items that are considered “essential” to have. However, the majority of them aren’t cheap. Here at EasyEventPlanning, we will help you find local places that rent affordable wedding necessities.
1. Wedding Cake Toppers
While renting a wedding cake is entirely out of the question, the decorations you put on said cake can go back to the baker. Many bakeries and even wedding supply stores offer a variety of cute and/or romantic cake toppers that you can rent for your special day. This is great if you don’t want to keep any of it and want to pinch a few pennies. This one is probably the least common to rent because a lot of couples that are sentimental would like to keep the cake topper but that’s why you take many pictures to remember your special day.
2. Wedding Attire
Whether your bridesmaids don’t want the extra expense of buying their dresses or you just don’t feel the need to hang on to old tradition, renting dresses can save you a ton of money. Wedding dresses are often exceptionally overpriced and get stored away to collect dust after the main event, so a rentable gown that looks fantastic for the day would be all you need. Keep in mind that it is ideal to purchase a dress in person but if it’s not possible due to COVID. There are online options, like from Amazon that has a trial period with most of their dresses, or there are vendors found on our website that offer rentals for wedding attire. there are online options off of amazon
This is perfect for anyone apart of your bridal shower or groomsmen because it is very unlikely for them to wear the dress again to multiple events. For men, it’s easier because they can wear their suits for multiple weddings if they normally go to a lot.
Surprisingly, some flower shops will actually let you rent their flowers, but more often than not, they are artificial. With faux flowers looking and smelling more real every year, your guests may not even realize that you rented a few blooms. If a flower shop won’t let you rent there are many options online that have rentals.
It is less stress worrying about what to do with your leftover flowers after the wedding or what to do if they start wilting before the wedding starts. If you are feeling sentimental I suggest buying just one set of real or faux flowers to keep for yourself after your wedding to look back and remember.
Decorations can make or break any party, so you want to be sure that you have great ones for your wedding reception. Check at local party places, rental facilities, or amazon to see what kind of accouterments they have available for rent.
Like the flowers, you may feel a little sentimental and want to keep some, but it is doubtful that you will keep all of your decorations, so a good way to save money is to rent your decorations. This is a very special day, so it is unlikely that you will reuse your decorations, which is why renting is very common.
You can rent candle holders and vases for your centerpieces, and even rent LED signs to spice up your event. You can also rent table linens and runners, which will help you save money in the long run. Since you will most likely never use table runners again, renting is the smartest option.
Many venues will require you to rent their own tables and chairs, but you may also be able to bring in an outside source. If you can, there are a variety of rental facilities that offer all kinds of furniture from dining chairs to buffet tables and lounges. Here is an example of what you might be able to find online.
Again, not a lot of couples plan on keeping the furniture since whatever they choose for their wedding day is specifically for that day so it is unlikely to keep all the chairs. Unless you previously own furniture that can fit the theme of the wedding, which is a good way to save money, then I would suggest renting.
If you are planning on hosting your event outdoors, investing in a brand new tent isn’t always ideal. Renting a tent will help you save money, and will make sure that your wedding will go off without a hitch, rain or shine. A variety of rental facilities rent out tents and will help you find the perfect size tent for your venue.
You may also want to consider renting a heating or air conditioning unit as well, especially if you are having an outdoor wedding during the summer or the winter. Making sure that you and your guests stay comfortable is important, and will make your wedding that much better.
