Wedding season is here in the beautiful Okanagan Valley. Here at All Occasions, we love helping couples bring the vision for their wedding to life by providing wedding rentals and more. We’ve supplied rentals for countless weddings and know there are a few key items you won’t want to forget for your big day. Keep reading for a list of must-have wedding rentals.
If you’ve been planning your wedding for a little while, you’ve likely had friends, relatives and even future in-laws ask you on multiple occasions, “do you have a plan B?”. If you’re having an indoor wedding, this may not be as applicable to you. But if you’re planning an outdoor wedding, you know the importance of having an extra plan in case the weather takes a less-than-perfect turn.
In addition to providing shelter from the sun or rain, tents can add a lot of atmosphere to your event. Wondering how to pick the right tent for your event? Check out our previous blog on Choosing a Tent for Your Event here.
If you’re getting married outside in the hotter months of the summer, you may also want to consider tent accessories such as a tent fan to make sure your guests stay comfortable, cool, and content.
Tables and Chairs
Tables and chairs are one of the most important parts of your wedding. And let’s be honest, it’s not practical to buy all the chairs and tables your guests will need for your day. However, don’t forget that your guests aren’t the only people who may need chairs during your big day. If you’re having live music, your musicians will need a place to sit, and you may need a table for your seating assignments, cake and desserts, favours, and gifts.
Aside from the traditional wedding chairs and tables, you may want to consider adding lounge furniture to your wedding rentals checklist. Creating a casual place for guests to sit and visit can create an excellent atmosphere and add to the overall aesthetic appeal of your wedding. These areas also make excellent backdrops for photos!
Concession & Novelty Equipment
Let’s be honest. Slushies on a hot day or the smell of popcorn wafting through an event is a hit with almost everyone. If you’re planning on taking photos between the ceremony and reception (or if you just want to add some fun to your reception!) you may want to consider renting a popcorn or slushie machine. Making snacks available to your guests will make sure they stay happy while they wait for the reception to start.
If you’re renting a ballroom for your event, you won’t have to worry about renting a dance floor. However, if you’re planning an outdoor wedding or any other venue that doesn’t already have a dance floor, you may want to think about renting a dance floor.
Here at All Occasions Party and Event rentals, we have a ton of dance floors to choose from. Not sure what kind or size to rent? Check out our Dance Floor page for a guide on how big and what kind of dance floor you’ll need
Alright, this may not be the prettiest or sexiest party rental for your wedding, but it is necessary. If your wedding venue is outside, and you want to cover your venue in twinkle lights, power some fans and\or heaters, or amp up your sound quality with some huge speakers, you’re probably going to need a generator.
Here at All Occasions Party and Event Rentals, we have everything you’ll need to rent for your big day. If you have further questions or would like a quote, feel free to contact us! We’d be happy to help with all your party and event rentals.
