Wedding Event Rentals

There are so many factors to consider in relation to planning a wedding. Between booking the venues, selecting floral arrangements, and hiring catering services, one may forget that you need furniture to put your arrangements and food on, along with so many other items that contribute to the objective and subjective quality of a wedding. Some venues will have their own in-house services, but what if they do not? Regardless of the scenario, one needs a truly skilled and experienced professional rental service to get the job done in a sufficient standard. This may seem a bit of a challenge, but do not worry too much, because Las Vegas has several fantastic event rental services. Below is a brief guide that should help you immensely to find the right rental candidates.

First, decide what items you'll need to rent. Sometimes, reception venues will include certain items or require you to use certain vendors for select items. For example, your venue may offer tables and chairs and use a certain company to provide linens. Your venue should have provided you with this information up front, but it's a good idea to double check anyway before you spend time searching for outside companies.

Now that you know what items you'll need, figure out how many of each and what your budget is. Once you have that preliminary information at hand, you can start your search for the best candidates. Online wedding directories and guide websites are great places for finding relevant information on all sorts of wedding vendors, including their locations and service areas, price range, and reviews from real brides and grooms. It is wise to visit each candidate's individual websites, and study it to get a feel for the company's ability to present and organize themselves and to see what sort of inventory they have. Once you have a list of appropriate vendors, give each one a call, and see what their availability is around the time of your wedding, it is likely that they will be available, but be sure that you book appointments with the companies that are not too solidly booked. If they have the items you're interested in, schedule a time to come in and view the selections.

Before you go to your viewing appointments, you should prepare a list of questions for each candidate on important topics like pricing, set up/take down services, delivery times, etc., and be ready to share your vision for the wedding. When you view the items, ask if they are the exact ones you'll be renting. No one wants dysfunctional items or furniture from a rental company, especially when you are renting those items for such a special occasion like your wedding. If a particular company denies this request, then do not consider them, it is of little hassle for them to show you their inventory, so do not let apathy get in your way. Ask how much experience they have in the business, and in particular, in the field of servicing weddings. It is worth it to ask how many weddings they service on average a year, and if you really want to get specific, how many weddings of your size they average a year. The most important thing is to ask about is the cost of the rentals and what service is included (delivery, set up, take down), and ask for any packages for renting several items. You should obtain a sample invoice from each company so that you can do a side-by-side comparison of each one's services in order to determine which one will give you the most bang for your buck. You may even find that one company can set up the lighting effects you want but another company has more affordable chairs, in which case you may opt to rent from both companies.

It may just come to you during the interview process, or while you are sitting on someone's crummy thin tin chairs, but regardless of how you decide on who is right for the task of supplying you rental items, you should trust your instincts. Once you've made your choice, sign the necessary contract with the company, and pay a deposit. If you have been diligent in this task, the commodities you need for your wedding will be handled proficiently and without delay!
