One: Save Some Money
Generally speaking, renting your wedding items can save you a lot of money. If you’re after an antique item such as a chandelier or typewriter, you’ll be dishing out a lot of money at an antique store! Instead, speak to us, to see what unique pieces we have in store for you – if we don’t have it, it may be of interest to us to find and utilize in other weddings as well as yours – as a result you’ll save some money and time by having us do the legwork for you. Not to mention, we take a deposit and have payment plans allowing you to save yourself from credit card interest payments.
Two: Buy and Sell Disaster
Buying and selling is the latest fad – I think every single bride in Thunder Bay is in the Wedding Buy, Swap, Sell group. However, selling your items after your wedding can get really time-consuming when you try to coordinate with the interested buyers. Planning pick-ups can also get frustrating when there are two conflicting schedules to keep in mind – then, it’s back to the drawing board when someone doesn’t show up!
Three: Bye-Bye Basic Venue
Many of our local venues are absolutely stunning and have unique features, however, tables, chairs and linens are basic so as to please everyone. Using basic items provided by the venue can downplay your wedding design and lack a personal touch. Whether you’re DIYing it, or have a decorator sprucing the place up for you, using our decor can make truly unique wedding experience!
Four: No Cleaning Linens
If you’re looking for linens, chair covers, napkins, and other items we don’t carry, we will happily refer you to our friends in the industry who can help you out. When you rent your linens you avoid having to clean them yourselves afterwards and you want to sell them. It’s a lot of effort to haul them to a laundromat with the big machines.
Five: Save Time
Our easy to browse online inventory systems helps you save time by being able to shop online whenever you want, even if it’s midnight on your phone in bed. You’ll save the travel time going to different stores and hunting down items you need. And if you get delivery added on to your event you’re also saving the energy and time needed to pick up the rental items, get them to the venue on wedding da, packed up the night of, and returned the following business day.
Six: Love the Environment
This one is pretty simple: single-use anything is not good for the environment. When you rent, you save on waste and your carbon footprint.
Seven: No Storage Space Needed
You’ll need to budget room for the essential items that come along with hosting a wedding; a wedding dress, suit, shoes, a cake topper, etc. It can all add up to a lot of space. Imagine needing even more room for linens, chairs, vases and trinkets – all piling up in your house over the next year! Then, consider all the gifts you’ll receive from your guests; you’ll need places for those items as well. Instead of spending the next days and weeks after your wedding re-arranging and cleaning, let your vendor deal with the issue of storage and clean-up allowing you to enjoy being newly weds.
Eight: Shipping Stress
Many brides flock to inexpensive online shopping sites like Amazon or AliExpress, however, what happens when your items are lost, stuck at the border or just generally delayed. Shipping from China can save you a lot of money, but it can add a lot of stress while you sit, wait and wonder.
Sure, you can source a ready made arbor from a garden center or use the same banquet chairs as the rest of your guests, but who wants that? Vintage items are truly special and not simply found online or in stores. Backdrops are fabricated on site; seating is acquired from estate sales, and decor items are carefully selected so you can customize your day the way you envision. Selecting unique pieces from a collection of antiques and custom decor guarantees a memorable day and fabulous photos!
