1. It’s easy to create a cohesive style

When it comes to designing your wedding, the options are literally endless. Even if you’ve narrowed down that you want a vintage bohemian look, deciding on the design elements to execute that style can be overwhelming. This is where a rental company makes things so much easier! From candlesticks to couches, the rental company has already curated a selection of items and often even organizes their stock by wedding style (e.g. rustic rentals, industrial rentals, etc.). Whether you’re designing a lounge area for the reception or arranging a welcome vignette at your ceremony, the rental company has a select number of pieces you can mix and match to perfectly carry out your vision.

2. You will save time and money not sourcing every single detail yourself

You already have enough on your plate with planning a wedding — let someone else do the hard work of sourcing your decor elements! A lot of couples get in over their heads with wanting to thrift or DIY every piece of decor for their wedding, not realizing how many pieces they will need to find or create, not to mention the expensive price tag of doing it yourself. When it comes down to it, working with a rental company is actually the more budget and time friendly option! Besides, do you really want to be stuck with 150 mason jars or glass candle holders after your wedding is over? Unless you’re getting into the wedding planning business after saying “I do,” it’s best to borrow the stuff you need for the one day you’ll use it than to take up stock in enough glassware to fill your whole kitchen.

3. The company will take care of transporting the goods

If there’s one thing you don’t want to worry about on your wedding day, it’s the transport of a bunch of furniture to and from your venue. One of the perks of hiring a rental company is that they take care of getting your rentals to the wedding and back to their warehouse safe and sound. No need to assign a bridesmaid to drive a big ole U-Haul of decor home after the party is over because a professional has got it covered!

4. You won’t need to worry about last minute purchases

Every couple has been there: it’s the week of the wedding and you realize you forgot to get a cake stand/card box/table for your unity ceremony items. With a rental company, adding last minute items is no sweat! No night-before-the-wedding runs to the craft store or Facebook posts asking to borrow furniture from friends. Simply log on to the company’s website and add your additional items or shoot a quick email to your vendor with a list of last minute needs and that source of stress is 100% relieved without ever leaving your house.

Now that you’ve been convinced to hire a rental company for your wedding, here’s everything you need to know about hiring your wedding vendors!

  3. I like that you suggested hiring a rental company for your wedding to make sure that you won’t have to spend more when by doing a DIY decoration since you may need more decor elements than you imagined. My sister and her fiance are wondering whether or not they should do their decoration on their own. They don’t see buying wedding decorations that they will only use for a day wise because they have also other expenses to consider. Based on the details of the wedding venue that they’re aiming to have, it will surely be great for them to achieve it by hiring a wedding rental company. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. My cousin is getting married at the end of this year, but still hasn’t chosen a rental company for the wedding decor. I like your point about how the company will also take care of transporting the goods. This will take a lot of stress off him and the bride, so I’m glad this is the case.

  5. You got my attention when you said that it’s wiser to borrow things that you will only use for a day to save money. My fiance and I are getting married soon, and we’re in need of farmhouse wedding tables. Our main priority is our budget because we have other expenses to consider, so we’ll make sure to rent farmhouse tables instead. Thanks!

  6. My favorite part of your blog is when you said that party rental companies have a number of rental equipment pieces that can match your need when designing your event place. I’m organizing my sister’s wedding party. She said that she wanted to have a total of 3 different chair designs for her wedding reception. Since we don’t want to spend too much money to buy chairs, we’ll make sure to consider renting. Thanks!

  7. It’s great that adding extra items last minute for your wedding or event is no stress for rental companies! I know there are going to be things we forget for my sister’s wedding, so it would be nice to have a company that could help us out when we realize what those things are. I want her event to be perfect, and I think that starts with covering our bases as far as rental equipment goes.

  8. Thanks for explaining why it could be good to get a rental company for a wedding. It’s nice to know that a rental company could help transport a bunch of furniture to and from the venue. This seems really helpful if you personally don’t have the means of transporting all that furniture, but you know that you need that much for your guests.

  9. I appreciate how the article explains that by using a rental company, they will be able to provide anything you need to be able to create the look that you desire for your wedding. My fiance and I are getting married in a few months and we are wanting our wedding to have a fun, southern style. Maybe a wedding rental company can help us create that look.

  10. Hii !! I read yourblog and i appreciate you for explaining the need of rental company . In your blog my favorite part is transportation of goods to the wedding venue and it is very benificial for me .Keep Sharing.

  11. My sister is planning on getting married in the fall and is still stressing about her decor. I found it interesting when you said how the company can transport all the goods. This might take a lot of stress off her and can make things go smoother.

  12. You made a good point when you said that hiring a party rental service would save me time and money since I would have to source all decors and items myself. My parents plan on having a party for their 30th wedding anniversary on our ranch. I’ll tell them to find a reputable party rental service for the event for convenience purposes. Thanks.

  13. I like that you pointed out that a rental company has everything curated so they make things easier. As you said, they could provide everything from candlesticks to couches as they have everything organized. My fiance and I are planning to get married in August, and we want a winter-themed wedding decoration as we met at a skiing event. Since we want to achieve our wedding dream without having to spend a lot, we will consider renting party items and decors.

  14. My sister is getting married soon and she is trying to decide if she wants to hire an event company to help. I like that you mentioned that these companies help save money because they have the decor and pieces you need. I think that this might be a really good idea to save her time and money on planning.

  15. I love how you stated that hiring a rental company for wedding equipment will save you time and money. My sister needs to rent tables, chairs, and other equipment for her wedding. I’ll help her find a reliable rental company.

  16. I loved that you said that having a rental company could allow you to add last-minute items so you won’t have to worry. This is something that I will share with my sister who is about to get married 6 months from now. They mentioned that they want the reception party to be really fun and unforgettable, so they should consider renting entertainment lighting equipment to set the vibes of the venue.

  17. It sure was nice that you pointed out that hiring a wedding rental company can ensure that you won’t worry about adding last-minute items. This is something that my fiance and I will consider because we are planning to get married in May. We want to ensure that we would have a stress-free wedding, especially since we don’t have access to tables and chars for more than 100 guests. Thanks!

  18. You made a good point when you said that you must consider letting someone else do the hard work of sourcing your decor elements. This is something that I will consider because I want to help my sister ensure that her wedding venue will have everything that she has been dreaming of. Maybe, I will consider hiring an event design service provider to keep everything in place and to reduce everyone’s stress.

  19. You made a good point when you said that you must consider letting someone else handle the decor elements for you since you will have enough on your plate when planning a wedding. This is something that I will share with my sister because she is getting married in October to the love of her life. She mentioned the need to have linen and tables rented out, so your tips are helpful.
