How Many Wedding Rentals Do I Need?

So you’re almost all set for the big day! Congratulations! Make sure you don’t miss out on any essential Virginia wedding rentals from Signature Event Rentals. Keep reading to learn how to decide how many tables and chairs you will need, as well as what size wedding tent rental.

Table Rentals

We’re starting with tables because, believe it or not, there can be a lot of variation in table sizes and shapes – even at the same wedding. If you are having a cocktail hour before your reception, you’ll obviously need cocktail tables. But you will also need dinner tables, perhaps a few banquet tables for the wedding party, banquet tables for the buffet, and possibly even a separate table for gifts. It is also not uncommon for couples to mix and match table sizes and shapes for their wedding to get the most out of their space.

With all the different types of tables, you are probably wondering, then, how many tables you will need. Our largest circle table rentals are 72” across, which can comfortably seat 10-12 adults. A 60” table can seat 8-10 adults, and a 48” circle table rental can seat 6-8. So take into consideration the number of guests when reserving your wedding table rentals.

If you go for banquet tables, keep in mind that each guest will need at least two feet of space along the table. So one side of an 8’ banquet table rental can seat 4 people comfortably.  That being said, you will obviously need to rent chairs as well. Be sure to get about 5% more chairs than expected guests, just in case a few last minute plus-ones join the party. Unfortunately, not everyone who RSVPs will show up, but you never know who will bring an uninvited guest in their place!

Tablecloth Rentals

Of course, you will most likely want to dress up your tables with tablecloth rentals. Linens for weddings do a lot to tie everything together. At our Virginia wedding rental company, we offer tablecloth and linen rentals in over two dozen colors. So whether you’re having a beachy wedding with aqua blue tablecloth rentals or a cozy fall-themed wedding with pumpkin colored tablecloths, you know we’ll have exactly what you need. And, of course, you can always count on our linens being delivered clean, wrinkle-free, and ready to go. Deciding how many tablecloths you will need is arguably easier than deciding how many tables. Simply make sure every table has a covering, and even mix and match colors for added flair.

Wedding Tent Rental

If you are having an outdoor wedding, as is common here during the spring and fall, you will obviously need a tent rental. Even if you don’t plan on using a tent, having a deposit on one for standby can make or break your wedding should the weather go south. As a leading provider of white tent rentals, you are sure to find the exact size and style you are looking for.

When deciding on a wedding tent size, there are a few things to take into consideration. The first is what will the tent be used for? If you are only using the tent for the reception and not for the ceremony, then you will need a relatively large tent. On the other hand, if you are planning to have your ceremony outside and your reception indoors, then a smaller tent will suffice. Let’s focus on the reception, though, as those will require the most space. A huge wedding with up to 400 guests and round dining tables will need our 40×100 large tent rental. For 200 guests, a 40×40 wedding tent will work, though it may be just a tad on the crowded side if you have tables and a dance floor. For smaller weddings with just under 100 guests, consider at least a 20×40 tent rental. If you are unsure how much space you will need, err on the side of too much rather than too little, especially if you feel there is a likely chance of rain or extremely hot weather. This will give you plenty of space for buffet tables and a large dance floor rental.
