How much should you budget for your wedding rentals...specifically, your vintage rental pieces?
There are lots of things to consider when planning out your rental budget.
Vintage rentals are often one of a kind items, not easily replaced or mass produced therefore will be of higher value to both you and your design, and also the rental shop.
Wants VS Needs
Considering your absolute wants for your wedding design may not align with your budget, you need to look at what your specific needs are, and how vintage pieces can fit the bill.
Ceremony Seating Options
No matter what, you will have to pay for seating options at your ceremony. This can vary between go to folding chairs or chiavari style chairs (sometimes you luck out with a venue that offers these chairs), to adding a few specialty chairs in, or go so far as to have a fully soft seated ceremony!!
Lounge Seating Options
We have touched on the subject of lounge sizes in previous blog posts, but think it is important to reiterate that your budget may allow for a lavish lounge or a smaller, more intimate lounge area. Either way, using vintage pieces, is a great way to incorporate the style you love for your design.
Table Top + Seating Options
There are so many ways to incorporate vintage pieces into your table top designs, and also seating at your head table, or specialty tables. Consider the amount of guests you will be hosting, your wedding party, and yourself and your partner. Putting the vintage pieces at your head table is the most cost effective way to have vintage place settings and beautiful seating. If the budget extends further, you could seat your wedding party as well as even parent tables with vintage pieces and seating.
