Wedding Rentals: Everything You Need to Know

- Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Weddings are by far one of the biggest rental requests vendors see each year. While most brides start scheduling their rentals at least six to nine months in advance, some wait until only a few weeks prior to the big day. Regardless of when your event is, you need to understand how wedding rentals work and use a few handy tips to get the most out of your rentals.

Essential Tips for Wedding Rentals

Whether you are interested in tent weddings or décor, these tips will help you get the rentals you need.

  • Be Aware of Wedding Season - Wedding season, which runs through the summer and into October, is the most requested time for rentals. If your wedding date falls into the busy season, you should book items at a minimum of six to nine months ahead. If you are interested in tent weddings, you will want to schedule your tent rental as early as possible to get the size and layout you want.
  • Bigger is Better for Tent Weddings - If you are stuck between two tent sizes, always opt for the bigger one. You do not want to risk a cramped space for your guests. Often couples do not realize how much space is required to fit guests, tables, chairs, catering equipment, and more, inside a tent. The larger the tent, the less cramped it will be.
  • Order Essentials Now - You do not have to fret about the color of your tablecloths or even the other décor items now. But, you should be placing your rental request for the big items - tables and chairs, tents, etc. as soon as possible. Miscellaneous décor can always be added on later, but don’t risk losing out on the major items you need.
  • Know Your Budget - Outdoor parties and indoor events all have a budget. Establish your budget before booking any rentals. See if the company has any budget-friendly décor options as well, so that you can get what you want without going into the red.
