How to Save on Wedding & Party Rentals in Seattle, WA

Wedding and party rentals don’t have to be expensive. However, it is still important to get quality rentals that make your event ooze glamor. What can you do to make sure that the cost of your wedding and party rentals stay within the stated budget? Below are budget saving tips that will help keep wedding and party rental costs low.

1. Use Simple Glassware

Using simple water and wine glasses not only helps you achieve an elegant look but also helps you save money. You can make the champagne glasses look a bit different and that will help give your even a sophisticated look without having to spend a lot of money.

2. Use Elegant Napkins & Simple Tablecloths

Tablecloths generally cost more to hire compared to napkins. To save on costs, splurge on napkins rather than tablecloths. Guests will likely not notice the tablecloths since there will be plates and glasses placed on them but they will notice the napkins. When you look for event rentals try to find lower priced items that can be complemented with more expensive items.

3. Use Multipurpose Chairs and Tables

Use tables and chairs that can be used both during the ceremony and at the reception to help cut costs. However, you should think about how you plant to transport the chairs and tables from one venue to the next to determine whether this approach helps you save money. If the venue of the ceremony and reception are far apart you might not end up saving any money.

4. Use Round Tables

Round tables are more preferable since they can accommodate more people compared to square tables. To make the round tables look fancier while still saving on rental costs, you can use a mix of both types of tables.

5. Use Bistro Lights

It is important to choose lighting that’s cheaper. For instance, you can use bistro lights since they may cost less than larger lights. You can talk to an expert on wedding rental packages to find the most suitable lighting for the event.

6. Find a Flexible Venue

It is advisable to find a venue that’s flexible where both delivery and pick up of wedding rentals can be done earlier. A flexible venue helps you save costs in case there’s a delay in the event since the wedding and party rentals company can deliver the items in advance at no extra cost.

7. Find a Properly Sized Tent

You can save a lot of money by choosing the right size of tent for your event. Ordering the wrong size of tent is likely to cost you more. If you order a small tent, you will be required to add more money for more tents. Ensure that you approximate the number of people expected to attend and rent an appropriately sized tent.

8. Wedding Rental Package Comparison

If you are considering multiple wedding and party rentals companies, visit them all and get quotations. Compare quotes from different providers and choose the one that offers quality at an affordable cost. You are likely to find that one company charges more on a particular item and less on other items. Ensure that you do a good comparison of the total cost of the rentals.

9. If You Have Few Guests, Skip the Wedding Rentals

Wedding rental packages may prove quite expensive if few guests attend your event. Packages are typically meant for a particular number of people and if your even has fewer people, it could turn out to be rather expensive. Determine the number of people expected to attend the event and hire the event rentals you need for such a number of people.

10. Use Less Expensive Chairs

Skip the pricier wood chairs and instead use plastic chairs. If you really love wooden chairs, use them for guests and use the inexpensive ones for non-guests, such as the band. Blending chairs of different types ensures that you have an elegant event while still saving on costs.

11. Implement Measures for Lowering Replacement Costs

To avoid repaying replacement costs, ensure that all the items you get from the wedding and party rentals company are in good condition. Ensure that the chair and table rentals, wedding tent rentals, dance floor, etc., are in excellent condition.

If you rent tablecloths, ensure that you provide candle holders and ash trays for the guests that smoke to avoid damaging the tablecloths. If you are using flowers that may stain the tablecloths ensure that you use something to protect them from stains.

Tables, chairs, lighting, and all other types of wedding and party rentals including the assorted delivery and assembly fees associated with them can quickly add up.
