Essential Wedding Rentals For Every Wedding

wedding couple

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.

Essential Wedding Rentals

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.

7 Reasons You Need To Rent A Tent For Your Outdoor Wedding

wedding tent rentals

Most couples set the date for their wedding up to a year in advance. It’s no surprise why. With the tough competition for wedding venues, reserving that perfect space for your special day can be tricky. Most outdoor weddings are held in June, September, or October. It makes sense why, too. The weather is hopefully not too hot and not too cold, and you can enjoy the last bits of springtime or the bask in the beginning of fall. However, just because you picked out your day a year in advance doesn’t guarantee you’ll be blessed with perfect weather. And what are those soon-to-be-newlyweds to do if they have a special day that falls, say, in January or August? Today, we’re giving you seven good reasons to reserve a wedding tent rental for your special day, regardless of the time of year.

7 Reasons To Rent A Wedding Tent

  1. Rain: Putting a deposit down on a tent rental just in case is the least you can do to ensure your outdoor wedding goes off without a hitch. In fact, the only hitch on your wedding day should be you and your partner getting hitched! A tent rental is less expensive than canceling a wedding due to rain, so even if you’d rather not use a tent, having one on standby could make or break your outdoor wedding.
  2. Sun: On the opposite end of the spectrum, you might plan your wedding for a nice warm autumn day, and experience blazing sun and 80-degree weather the day-of. While some guests might rejoice, it most likely means your Great Grandma Mildred will be spending the day inside just to find some sun protection.
  3. Saves Money: We mentioned above that renting a tent is cheaper than canceling a wedding due to inclement weather, and that’s true. But that is not the only cost-saving factor at work here. For large wedding parties especially, you will almost always be able to find an outdoor venue that can accommodate your guests for less money than an indoor venue of appropriate size. Additionally, with the beauty of the great outdoors as your backdrop, you will most likely spend less on decorations for an outdoor wedding as well.
  4. It Just Looks Romantic: If you’ve ever watched a British romantic comedy movie, you’ve most likely seen some sort of outdoor garden party or event where everyone is dressed to the nines in big, gorgeous hats. The key feature of these upscale outdoor events is always a sprawling white tent rental. These tents add almost a royal fairytale-like element to any event and make weddings especially romantic.
  5. It Adds Atmosphere: Just as white tent rentals help to make a wedding day feel like a fairytale, they also help to create a cozy atmosphere. Something about being outside, but still being together under one roof makes everyone feel connected.
  6. It Opens Up Decor Options For an Outdoor Wedding: Even though outdoor weddings often use the natural surroundings as part of the decor, there’s only so much you can do to enhance it without a tent. Sure, you can put centerpieces and tablecloth rentals on the tables, but what else can you do? With a tent, you have the option to hang romantic lighting to create a warm and cozy mood or drape fabric around the tent to keep it mystical and airy. You can hang a disco ball above the dance floor or even set up some fun techno lighting to truly make it a party.
  7. You Can Utilize The Season: Since we’ve already established that wedding tent rentals are a must for an outdoor wedding, an outdoor wedding is essential for a seasonally-themed wedding. For example, do you want to have a winter wonderland-themed wedding? You could hang paper snowflakes inside a heated venue…Or you could take the party out into the actual snow. Perhaps a full outdoor reception in the snow would be a little chilly, but consider how unique it would be to have a snowy outdoor ceremony. A rented tent and a couple of space heaters will create a comfortable environment for your guests as you tie the knot. Additionally, an autumn-themed wedding will be much better suited to an outdoor venue surrounded by gold and red trees, as opposed to indoors. A rented tent can make this dream a reality.
