As you plan your wedding the list of things you need is surely growing. Common items include tables, tablecloths, napkins, chairs, plates, forks, knives, and glassware. Additionally you may want table number stands, beverage dispensers, lighting, tents, heaters, and more. You have to decide if you want to buy or rent all these different items, and there are pros and cons to each choice depending on what you’re looking for. Here are five reasons to use wedding rentals.

  1. Better Style and Variety
    When you work with a rental company, you have access to a huge selection of items in all sorts of different styles and themes. This can make a big impact on your wedding especially with regard to decor. Your wedding and the photos will look especially beautiful with coordinating colours and design.
  2. More Efficient
    Instead of shopping around at a multitude of different stores to find what you’re looking for, a rental company will have most everything you need. You can browse all the options offered in one location and in just one or two visits. This is a much more efficient use of your time and energy.
  3. Storage Included
    If you choose to purchase the items for your wedding you will need to store them somewhere beforehand. You will also have to decide where to keep them or what to do with them after the event is over. With a rental company, they store everything for you before and after your wedding.
  4. Washed and Cleaned
    Items purchased may need to be washed before the event. Tablecloths, dishes, glassware, and so on will absolutely have to be cleaned after the event. This is a time-consuming job. When renting from a company, your items arrive freshly cleaned and oftentimes can even be returned dirty as well.
  5. Uniqueness
    When renting you have access to more unique items that you can incorporate in your wedding which wouldn’t normally be an option to purchase. Some fun ideas include a cotton candy maker, photo booth, popcorn machine, or outdoor game. Rental companies also have different and beautiful decor options.
