There are some things for your wedding day that you are better off making a straight investment in. The food on the plate can’t be returned, and the perfect staff is irreplaceable (Sorry, shameless plug!), but there are other items you can rent that will save you so much time and money in the process.
Florals are one decoration that any wedding cannot go without, and unfortunately, renting is scarcely an option for this unless your flowers are fake and can be rented. A bonus to buying the flowers is that you can dry and keep them as mementos, and pass them off to your guests as a parting gift. However, the vases and decor that the flowers come in can be rented. Save hundreds by paying for the flower itself and not spending as much on the arrangement or vases.
It may sound unusual, but you can rent your jewelry including diamonds for your wedding. Other than that perfect engagement ring to last forever, other earrings and large necklaces will only be worn once. Sites like William and Henri allow you to rent jewelry (yes, even rings!) so you can be as elaborate as possible without breaking the bank.
We hope these rental ideas have been helpful! Feel free to reach out with any questions you ma have about renting items for your big day!

The ceremony is the most special part of the wedding. This is what unites you and the love of your life! Through vows, the exchanging of rings, a kiss, and other traditions, this is sure to be a memorable time for you and your guests. Their attention will not only be on you, but the backdrop behind you. The backdrop can greatly enhance the mood of your ceremony.
With couples planning their spring and summer weddings, we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite types of ceremony backdrops for these seasons. You are sure to find one that fits with your wedding vision. Using pastels will give your spring or summer weddings a light, romantic feel.
How cute are these backdrop examples? We hope they helped you decide what you want as the focal point for your ceremony. Let us know how we can be of assistance with your wedding ceremony!

Your wedding is such a special day to you, and when the time comes to tie the eternal knot, it’s important to have the right people by your side supporting you and sharing this experience with you. Whether you are the bride or the groom, you want to make sure whoever you choose to be in your bridal party is someone that will encourage you, support you, and remember all of the little details so you don’t have to fuss or stress on your big day.
Not only do they need to support you, but you also need to support and appreciate them. Remember that whoever you ask is going to have a lot of work to do for your wedding. The maid of honor and best man will plan the bachelor/bachelorette party, guard the rings, help organize so many important details, and most of all be your number one support.
If you have already chosen who those special people are in your life, then you want to invite them in a way that will flatter them, surprise them, and get them excited about saying “yes.” Most importantly, you want to invite them in their own language. We all have a love language that we speak with all of our friends, not just in our romantic relationship. If you have a successful friendship with someone that will be there on your wedding day, then the odds are, they are already someone who you know well. If you know their love language, then ask them to be your bridesmaid/groomsmen in a way that will make them feel appreciated and loved. If you don’t know their love language- I encourage you to find out. It will help you along the way in your relationship to make sure they feel valued in the friendship and it will help things run smoothly on your wedding day.
Hopefully, this blog gave you some inspiration to ask your wedding party. We hope your bridesmaids and groomsmen will feel extra special when you ask them!
