Linens and Tables and Chairs!
Whether you're getting married in a ballroom, on an estate or in a private home you need to think about what items will need to rent. Your florist and caterer will tell you what you need - linens, china, silver serving pieces, glassware, flatware, tables, chairs, tents, floors, generators, heaters, lighting, floors.
For this posting we'll focus on linens, china, serving pieces, glassware, flatware, tables and chairs. (Whew)
Don't assume that all of these items will be included with your wedding location. In most cases they will be, but if you are getting married in a loft space or a private home you may have to bring everything in to accommodate your guests.
Enter the rental company. A rental company can offer you numerous options to customize and create the feeling and tone you’ve always imagined.
Take your florist to your wedding location to decide which linen color will work best with the flowers and the room, and ask the caterer to show you china, glassware and flatware options. You may decide you want a different look – more romantic or modern, a solid color or a pattern.
