A GUIDE TO ADDING RENTALS TO YOUR WEDDING DAY DETAILS

RENTING UNIQUE FINDS

 

 

When I first started photographing weddings, there wasn’t a whole lot of options for having lots of pretty details strewn about your wedding venue. It seems like in the past few years the vintage rental market has become a unique touch to add to your big day. There are endless combinations to add and you can become as creative as you heart desires! Not to mention I LOVE when my clients add this to their detail list. I am able to really showcase my clients in a way that tells people who they are.

1. YOU WILL GET LOTS OF PRETTY DETAILS

Seriously, I am a kid in a candy store when I show up to a venue and there are so many pieces to shoot! I like to start with the details. If you bring in a seating arrangement for guests to enjoy during cocktail hour that has all sorts of textures, fabrics and perfectly paired seating shapes, your cocktail hour goes from a bunch of people standing around to a cocktail hour that has some charm! This will add a nice touch to your finished gallery of images too! When it comes to bride and groom portraits we can use those pieces for some really romantic or really playful images of the two of you!

2. LOT’S AND LOT’S OF OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM

I have worked with several companies over the past few years, and there are some great ones in the Temecula area. The image above has rentals from Abby’s Party Rental in Temecula Califonia. They have a warehouse just off Jefferson Ave. They are super friendly to work with. You want to be sure that the company has other items besides all the pretties. Remember, you are going to need ceremony chairs if your venue doesn’t provide them already. I would also look for place settings, unique china as well as bride and groom head table options. When planning, be sure to tell your florist your visions. They are incredible artists that can make these pieces come alive. The tables, archways, and other details were carefully decorated by The Flower Story.

3. CONSIDER HIRING A PLANNER TO DESIGN IT!

If you just can’t make up your mind or have trouble pulling it all together, consider hiring a wedding planner! Their job is to take your ideas and make them come to life! One of my favorites to work within the Temecula Wine Country area is Lorena from Rustic Vintage Events.  She starts by creating a style board for you with all the things you have been dreaming about for years and creates mock-ups, then goes over the colors, tones and the overall look and feel of each and every item. Even down to the forks!
