Event rentals are going to be your best friend when it comes to designing the perfect wedding day visions. From tents to centerpieces to everything in between, there are so many options when it comes to décor. With so many gorgeous items readily available for rent, it can get a bit daunting and overwhelming when it comes time to choose. To help you figure out which fabulous event rentals you should use for your wedding, we’ve narrowed down our top choices.

​Here are the different types of event rentals you’ll want to consider for your wedding:

Tents

Of course, not all weddings require tents, but if you’re planning on hosting outdoors then renting a tent is a must. Not only is it super-functional (i.e. protection and relief from the elements or any rainy-day surprises) but it’s also very fashionable and sets a cozy and chic ambiance.

Unique lighting

Speaking of an outdoor wedding, whether you’re hosting with or without a tent, unique lighting options lend the perfect touch of ambiance.

Tables and chairs

You may not think that renting tables and chairs is all that sexy, but we can promise you that you (and your guests) will absolutely notice if you go too “basic” on this fundamental décor item. Rest assured, many furniture rental companies have some very stylish choices that work fantastically with any theme.

Dance floor

Let’s be honest: the dance floor is probably going to be one of the biggest focal points for your reception. While a banquet hall typically won’t require a dance floor rental, you’ll definitely want to invest in renting one if you’re hosting your wedding in a smaller or non-traditional event space. One of the other perks of renting a dance floor is having the option to personalize your dance floor with cute patterns and even your new initials as a married couple. In fact, most in-house dance floors allow you to do this as well!

Stylish furniture and accents

Soft seating, lounge chairs, and pillows are additional signature furniture pieces that help create a cozy atmosphere for your wedding. Renting these pieces is a cost-effective way to really ramp up the unique feel of your big day.

Linens

Regardless of the vibe you’re going for with your tablescape, the right linens play a huge part in your overall event décor. The exciting part is you can find many linens for rent that come in various patterns and colours that will match perfectly with your wedding’s colour palette.

Dinnerware, flatware, and stemware

Another must on your list. To complete your tablescape look, of course, you need proper tableware! Thankfully, these also can all be rented and, like linens, they are typically offered in a variety of finishes and colours that will work magically with your theme.

Bars

One of the biggest pros of event rentals is having access to amenities that your venue might not offer in-house. For example, if you would love to host an outdoor cocktail hour but your venue doesn’t have a bar, then no problem- you can rent one yourself. This also works if you’re hosting a backyard wedding too. Of course, logistics need to be considered (for example, if the size of the venue allows for it and if you’re able to obtain the right liquor license).

Backdrops

A beautiful backdrop is the piece de resistance when it comes to establishing the vibe of your wedding. From a living wall to one that’s filled with tons of texture, renting a backdrop can be the perfect place for a photo op while also covering anything in your venue that you think isn’t so Instagram-worthy.
