Organising a wedding is an exciting period of time for most, which requires a significant amount of time dedicated to planning, to ensure the big day runs seamlessly. An aspect of wedding planning which requires great consideration is furniture hire. If your venue doesn’t provide furniture or if you prefer to seek out your own, hiring furniture is a convenient and cost-effective alternative to add the wow factor to any event. When seeking a furniture hire company for your wedding, it’s important to consider our five tips to ensure your big day is a showstopping success!
WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET & THEME?
Without a set budget or theme in mind, it’s incredibly hard to hire furniture let alone plan a wedding itself. By having a budget and theme in mind, you can ensure you’re not overspending in one area of wedding planning and ensure the furniture you do hire suits the image you are attempting to bring to life. If you have a limited budget, it’s important to let your furniture hire company know so they can recommend the most suitable pieces for your event. Having a theme to follow will help you decide on tables or chairs to hire which will suit the vibe you are aiming for. If you’re having an outdoor, springtime, floral themed wedding you may opt to include some Tiffany or Bentwood chairs with festoon lighting. Having a theme and budget in mind will help you to bring your ideal wedding vision to life, without breaking the bank.
WHAT ARE YOUR FURNITURE HIRE REQUIREMENTS?
It’s incredibly important to understand exactly what your furniture hire requirements are in order to ensure everything runs smoothly on your wedding day. Once you have decided on your theme, consider how many guests you will be having and what furniture you will require. Make a list of all you will require and the quantity of those items which are required. Decorative items such as wine barrels and pallet bars are easier to plan as you don’t need to cater to the number of guests in order to book them. Items such as chairs and tables will require you to have an idea of how many guests you expect to be attending. Ensure you have booked an adequate number of tables and chairs to cover your guests, especially if you are hosting a seated event.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE YOU SHOULD BOOK YOUR FURNITURE HIRE
Book as early as you possibly can to ensure your desired chairs, tables or other decorative pieces are available to hire on the date of your wedding. Also take into consideration the furniture you will be hiring. If you need to hire a significant amount of furniture, the earlier the better, if you are only hiring a few decorative pieces, there is a lesser sense of urgency. Some chair hire companies may recommend hiring within different stages of your wedding planning, however if you have set a date which falls within peak season, it’s always best to book your furniture as early as possible as it’s such a crucial element of your event.
MAKE YOUR VENUE AWARE YOU ARE RENTING FURNITURE
Some wedding venues may provide all furniture, some may provide a few items, some nothing at all, this is why it’s absolutely crucial to confirm this with them prior and ensure you are able to bring your own hired furniture. You must know if the furniture you are hiring will fit comfortably within the venue and works within your intended layout. If the furniture provided by the venue doesn’t suit your vision, you need to ensure you communicate this with them so they can arrange to have the current furniture stored away to make room for your hired pieces. Communication is vital when planning your wedding, always keep the venue in the loop with your ideas in order to eliminate any misunderstandings on the day.
HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT CHAIRS/ TABLES TO HIRE
Your tables and chairs are a significant element of your wedding as they set the overall tone of the event. Whether you are having a sit-down wedding, or a less formal cocktail style wedding, seating plays a major role in how your wedding plans. This is why you must ensure it is strategically planned. Always consider your theme when choosing the right furniture for your big day. Is it formal, or casual, outdoor or indoor, all of these factors play a major part in knowing which chairs or tables to hire. If guests are to be seated throughout the whole duration of the wedding (likely with COVID-19 restrictions) you may want to choose more comfortable chairs with cushioning. Tiffany chairs are a timeless, wedding favourite providing any event with a touch of elegance and sophistication. Similarly, Bentwood chairs are also another popular wedding addition, adding both class and comfort for your guests. Having a theme for your wedding will always assist you in determining which chairs, tables or other furniture are ideal for your event.
