What Should I Rent on My Wedding Day?

What Should I Rent on My Wedding Day?


You’ve set the date, booked the venue, and made a massive Pinterest board with your favorite ideas. We know we’d go ‘Awwww…’ to most of your thoughts, but before we do, let’s talk about what you should rent on your wedding day.

Why would you want to rent?

A tight budget is one obvious reason that you should rent instead of buy things for your wedding day. But even if the budget may not be an issue, it is always wiser not to buy things you won’t need after the wedding.

Wedding rentals will both save you money and free you from extra planning and organization. Disposing of, transporting, repurposing, or selling unneeded lighting, linen, china, and glass takes a lot of time and mental energy.

Rent the large items

You can rent a tent, a dancefloor, outdoor restrooms, a bar, tables, and chairs. Even if some of these are provided by your venue, you may still want to include lighted tables or color-washed wall lights in your wedding day rentals to enhance the place’s architecture or wall details.

Rent the reception setting details

You can use the regular items that your venue provides and spice up the atmosphere with rented centerpieces, table lights, bold tableware, or colored glass goblets. If you want to highlight the cake table or the bar, under-lighting is the type of wedding rentals you should search for.

Lighting Inscriptions – Trending Wedding Day Rentals!

GOBO lights are an illumination in the form of a monogram, initials, date, or any image – used to add a signature detail to any event. It is typically cast to shine over the dance floor, background wall, ceiling, or over the floor at the entrance.

Lights can also light up your venue to match your theme – wedding day rentals like colored LED lights simply paint the walls with the color of your choice.

Vintage Furniture

Whether you’re looking for lounge seating or furniture, why not go with vintage? It’s perfect for pictures and makes your wedding day look elegant!

Vintage furniture is affordable and can add more character to fit your wedding theme. Consider coffee tables, chairs, loveseats, and even rugs.


Note: This should only be included on your wedding rental checklist if you’re hosting a backyard or tented event where restrooms aren’t easily accessible (or if you’d prefer your guests not use the restrooms in your home, in the case of a backyard wedding). Restrooms are obviously a requirement, and rented restroom trailers are usually quite spacious and well-appointed.
