By: Amy

Planning a wedding involves juggling numerous details, and coordinating rentals can be a significant part of the process. Especially if you did not hire a full or partial wedding planner. From tables and chairs to tents and decor, ensuring you have everything you need for your big day requires careful planning and organization. To help couples navigate the rental process smoothly and minimize stress, we’ve compiled expert tips to streamline the experience from start to finish.

Plan Ahead

One of the keys to a stress-free rental experience is to start planning early. Begin by creating a comprehensive list of the items you’ll need for your wedding, including furniture, decor, and any special equipment. It’s important you know the number of guests attending, the floor plan, and the big picture design of your wedding prior to booking a rental appointment.

Create a Detailed Rental Order

Once you have a clear idea of what you need, create a detailed rental order outlining each item, quantity, and any specific preferences or requirements.

Coordinate with Vendors

Effective communication with your rental vendor and other wedding vendors is crucial for a seamless rental process. Provide your rental vendor with important details such as the venue layout, delivery and pickup times, and any specific instructions for setup and breakdown. Coordinate with your other vendors, such as caterers, florists, and planners, to ensure everyone is on the same page and working together harmoniously. You’d hate for your rentals to arrive at 4 PM when the wedding starts at 5. Communication is key!

Handle Logistics on the Wedding Day

On the day of your wedding, designate a point person or coordinator to oversee the rental setup and logistics. Make sure your day of contact’s cell phone number is on file.

Additional Tips for a Smooth Rental Experience:

  • Visit the Rental Showroom: If possible, schedule a visit to your rental vendor’s showroom to see their inventory firsthand and get inspiration for your wedding decor.
  • Consider Delivery and Pickup Options: Discuss delivery and pickup options with your rental vendor to determine the most convenient and cost-effective solution for your needs.
  • Factor in Setup and Breakdown Time: Allow ample time for setup and breakdown to ensure everything is in place before the wedding starts and to facilitate a smooth transition after the event. Questions to ask: Who is setting up? How early can rentals be delivered? What is the window from Grand Exit to venue must be clear?
  • Communicate Any Changes Promptly: If you need to make changes to your rental order or event details, communicate them promptly with your rental vendor to avoid any last-minute confusion or issues.
  • Book As Soon as You Can!: Once the rentals are booked by another client, they are gone! We recommend booking 6-12 months out from your big day.

By following these expert tips, couples can streamline the rental process and enjoy a stress-free wedding planning experience. With careful planning, clear communication, and attention to detail, you can ensure that your wedding day is everything you’ve dreamed of and more.
