If you are undertaking the wonderful, albeit often arduous, task of planning a wedding reception, there are many different small things you will need to know. Wedding and party rentals will help these tiny details come together to create an unforgettable and magical event that you can cherish forever. So here are some things you might forget in the weeks leading up to the big day.
This might strike you as an obvious necessity, but do you have enough space for your catering service to do their jobs? What will they serve? Where will they serve it? All of these questions and more must be addressed before the reception.
What does your dream wedding look like? Whatever foggy idea you have, picture it more clearly. What kind of tablecloth linens will you have? Do the napkins match? Rental linens will provide the elegant, high-quality table runners, sashes, chair covers, table-cloths and napkins for your reception. Complete event rentals will help you coordinate your decor without too much thought.
If you are having your event outdoors, you will need a tent. This will keep people dry in the rain and cool in the sun.
If you’ve already decided on a guest list, consider that some of your guests will not know each other, or worse, will dislike each other. Organize your seating so your guests feel comfortable at their table.
Aside from a tent to guard against the elements, you want to consider what you will do in the event of heavy rain. This could be a simple as saying, “If it rains, we get wet,” or as extensive as having a secondary location to move the party to in case of a storm.
Most people have a drunken uncle, friend, or relative of some sort that might become a distraction or disturbance at your reception. Plan to deal with the wild cards quietly and without causing a scene. Or let them cause a scene and laugh about it later.
Yes. Or, at least, most of your guests would hope you say yes.
Wedding and party rentals can certainly streamline the reception planning process, leaving you free to focus on the party itself. It’s your big day, so live it to the fullest!
