Five Rentals You May Need For Your Outdoor Wedding

Posted on: 19 August 2016

There are many things you have to take into consideration when you are planning a wedding. Many people remember to take the cost of the large things into account, such as the banquet hall rental, the cost of the dress, and the caterer, but they forget about the smaller, more intricate details of wedding planning. The guide below walks you through a few things that you need to remember to take into account when considering the budget for your outdoor wedding.

Plates, Glasses, and Silverware

When you have a wedding, everyone will need plates and silverware to enjoy the food and glasses to toast with when the wedding toast is given. Be sure that you know how many guests you plan to invite to the wedding to ensure that you rent enough dinnerware for everyone. You will be able to choose between a few different styles of dinnerware to ensure that the site you choose matches the style of your wedding nicely.

Chairs and Tables

You will need tables and chairs for everyone to use during dinner. Choose between round, square, or rectangular tables. You may want to consider the seating arrangements you may use before choosing the style of tables you want at the reception to ensure that everyone you want to sit together can physically do so at your reception.


Consider the linens that you want at the reception, as well. You need to be sure to rent linens that will match with the color scheme of your wedding. Consider if you want chair covers as well to create a uniform look in the space.

Event Tents

Since your wedding will be outside, having large event tents set up is a good option because it will provide shade if the sun is beaming down on guests during the event. It will also protect everyone from possible rain showers.

Outdoor Lighting

When you have an outdoor wedding, having great lighting when the sun starts to go down is important. You can rent hanging lights, floor lamps, or uplighting to use at your wedding to create the whimsical look you want for your special day.

Many party rental companies have all of these things available for you to rent so that you do not have to work with multiple companies. The company will often deliver everything to your wedding site and help with setup since setting up event tents or outdoor lighting is not something that everyone is accustomed to doing. For more information, contact local professionals like Golden Rentals.
