Are you wondering what items you should rent versus buy for your wedding? Read below to learn about our recommendations on keepsakes versus one-day use items and how renting may save you time, money, and your sanity!
A challenge many couples face when planning their wedding is deciding on what items to buy versus rent - you’re not alone! You’re investing a ton of time and money into your wedding to make sure it’s everything you’ve ever dreamed of. So what things are worth renting? We recommend asking yourself this one question when you’re tempted to swipe that credit card: will I use this item again or is it just for my wedding day? Answering that question will help you put into perspective what’s a keepsake or has sentimental value versus something that will eventually end up in storage or worse yet, in the trash. So things like table linens, runners, flatware, arches, fabric draping, candles and lighting, signage, and other tabletop decor items, you’ll probably want to rent.
"Will I use this item again or is it just for my wedding day?”
You get to focus on what’s most important - your wedding day!
First and foremost, your wedding day should be filled with family, friends, and champagne! Believe us when we say, you will be so preoccupied with all the goodness and joy that your wedding day brings that you will not want (or have time) to even think about any of the details leading up to walking down the aisle. Just as you’ve hired a caterer, florist, coordinator, and a DJ, consider hiring a wedding decor vendor. We focus on the finer details and heavy lifting like packing, delivering, setting up, and tearing down of items so that you can focus on what’s most important - walking down that aisle and getting hitched!

Renting saves you time and money
A bride can spend hours, maybe even days or months, researching all of the decor she wants displayed throughout her wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Candles, lanterns, chandeliers, fabric draping, vases, arch decor, flowers, aisle decor, cake and dessert stands, centerpieces, signs...the list goes on. Not only does this take an incredible amount of time and energy sorting through all the pieces, but it gets expensive. In the end you may end up saving yourself a ton of time and money (and your sanity!) by renting.
Renting helps the environment
Weddings aren’t going to stop anytime soon. They happen every day in every part of the world. The massive amount of wedding decor items that are continuously bought, used, and thrown out is a growing concern in the wedding industry. How are we able to create a more sustainable culture when it comes to weddings? Rent the items that you’ll only use on your wedding day. It’s an easy and readily available solution, especially here in Colorado. By renting from us, you’re not only doing mother earth a favor, but you’re also supporting a local business. Win-win in our book!
