Tips For Saving Money On Wedding Rentals For Your Ceremony And Reception

Planning a wedding ceremony and reception requires a lot of preparation and attention to detail. Hosting a beautiful wedding can also be costly if a couple is not careful, so it is essential to keep a close eye on the budget. When it comes to wedding ceremonies and receptions, many couples need to rent various items, such as chairs, tables, linens, glassware, and an event tent. Luckily, there are several things that a couple can do to keep the cost of renting these items affordable. If you're planning a wedding, use the following tips to save money on your wedding rentals.

Use Simple Glassware

One easy way to manage the cost of your wedding rentals is by keeping the glassware simple. Limit the type of glassware used at the bar, and select basic water glasses for the tabletops. If you have a little bit of room to splurge, you can choose to rent ornate champagne flutes to be used during the wedding toasts, but using simple glassware for the rest of the reception will keep rental costs down.

Opt for Multi-Purpose Chairs

Many couples need to rent chairs for their wedding and reception, and if there is a large guest list, a large number of chairs will be needed. There is no reason to pay for chairs for the ceremony and chairs for the reception. If you want to save money, opt to have the chairs from the ceremony moved to the reception venue. A lot of couples have a cocktail hour between the ceremony and start of the reception, so the chairs can be moved inconspicuously.

Don't Blow Your Budget on Fancy Tablecloths 

Event rental companies offer a wide variety of tablecloths, and some can be very luxurious. Unfortunately, the luxe tablecloths come with a much bigger price tag. Don't spend a huge amount of money renting fancy tablecloths—they will be covered by your table centerpieces, glassware, china, and place cards. You are much better off renting simple tablecloths and selecting beautiful cloth napkins instead, since those will be much more visible.

Rent Everything from One Vendor

It is always a good idea to rent all of your wedding rentals from one vendor. When you do this, you will only have one delivery fee to pay. In addition, working with just one vendor makes your life a lot easier, since you can discuss all of the details of your wedding rentals with a single person instead of having to make multiple phone calls.
