We have a couple of pieces that people from across the country inquire regularly about, so getting your name on the books early ensures that you have all the pieces to make your wedding day vision come true! How early is too early? Too early doesn’t exist.

The Perfect Venue: Backyard Wedding Ideas

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, September 15, 2014, In : Wedding Ideas 

One of the hardest aspects of planning a wedding is finding the perfect venue. Not only are there a million different places to look at, each of those places have their own set of restrictions and rules that must be followed- some want you to use their caterer, while others have ugly green carpet that just doesn’t jive with your mint and peach dream wedding.

Before you begin what promises to be an exhausting hunt for the elusive perfect venue, we wanted to mention a venue that we...

6 Creative Wedding Terrarium Ideas

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Friday, August 29, 2014, In : Wedding Ideas 

Last year around this time, we did a quick run down for you about some of our favorite autumn floral ideas (check that post out here), and the rentals that we thought would compliment them best. This year, we wanted to explore one of the more recent trends in the floral department- terrariums!

There is something so incredibly whimsical and fun about this trend that we just couldn’t wait to share it with you! We love the colors and the variations that terrariums can provide- and we are al...

Antique Rentals

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, August 4, 2014, In : Wedding Ideas 

Incorporating antique and vintage pieces into your wedding décor is a beautiful way to add dimension to your day. The old adage “something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue” is spot on when it comes to creating a cozy and personal vibe for your big day- and we can actually help with all of the above.

Many of our brides love the idea of incorporating antique pieces into their wedding decor, but don’t necessarily have easy access to their family’s an...

Real Weddings

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Friday, July 18, 2014, In : Wedding Ideas 

You know that saying “a pictures is worth 1000 words”? We thought that rather than gush about our rentals today we would let you see a few of them in action (we will probably still gush a little…).

We can’t even begin to do our archways and new doors justice with only a description. We love to see how each bride
infuses her own style!



Sometimes an archway isn’t even necessary. Our white chairs on green grass make a statement in and of themselves. Add one of these incredi...

Banquet Chair Covers

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, July 7, 2014, In : Wedding Ideas 
For many of our brides, renting tables and chairs is the best option (and we have some gorgeous ones to choose from). For other brides, however, venues may provide chairs and tables, which can be a fabulous way to save a bit of money... but sometimes these chairs may be less than stylish. We have the perfect solution- these gorgeous banquet chair covers, which can take a standard (and even strangely colored) chair from drab to fab in no time at all:



For the brides who want a little more punch ...

Red, White and Blue

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, June 23, 2014, In : holiday 

With Independence Day just around the corner, we are dreaming in red, white and blue. In keeping with the patriotic spirit, we thought it would be fun to share some of our red, white and blue rentals!

We love how much just a pop of color can add dimension to a neutral pallet- and red is one of our absolute favorite colors! We have rentals with a LOT of red (cue our gorgeous red desk that has been to some gorgeous weddings so far this summer) to just a hint of red (like our modern a...

With Memorial Day weekend kicking off what we consider to be official barbeque season, we have summer entertaining on the brain.

Why We Love Chandeliers

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, November 18, 2013, In : Wedding Ideas 
A couple of weeks ago, we got a brand new chandelier in the shop- and we absolutely LOVE it. 



We realized that we hadn't really talked about all of the chandeliers that we offer on the blog yet and thought this week we would share some eye candy showcasing the glorious ways that chandeliers can spice up your ceremony or reception. 



Let's start with the newest member of our chandelier collection. We love that it combines the rustic touch of twigs with a little bling, and that it features a light...

Get the Look: Halloween Edition

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, October 28, 2013, In : holiday 


With Halloween tomorrow, we have all things chic and spooky on the brain. We've been collecting some non-permanent decorating ideas for the party host who might not want to sacrifice her favorite vases to the throws of red paint, or for the savvy party thrower who is using rental items to save a little cash. 

Rather than focusing on finding decorations that fit the spooky bill, we think that using more standard items to compliment your spooky decor is the way to go. That will keep your decorat...

10 Rental Dos and Don’ts for the Pinterest Bride

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Wednesday, October 16, 2013, In : rental information 

Do:

1). Drop by and look at your rental options before you hit the pin boards


2). Use pinterest for ideas to dress up stock items.


Photo credit 

3). Talk to your rental companies about restrictions/guidelines for use. Most rental companies probably won’t let you dip their vases in glitter and glue, so if you have a real hankering for a glue-glitter combo you may need to consider buying instead.

4). Keep things realistic. Maybe renting tablecloths is a better idea ...

Choosing a Seat

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, October 7, 2013, In : Wedding Ideas 
When brides dream of planning their wedding... choosing what sort of chairs their guests will rest their hindquarters in while the couple says "I do" doesn't typically make the top 10 list of important decisions. Seating may seem like a small decision, but the chairs you choose can affect the feel of your ceremony, and good ones can even allow you to spend LESS on decorations. We offer a couple styles of chairs for our brides to choose from:





And to be honest, we think they both look gorgeous w...

To Rent or to Buy?

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, August 19, 2013, In : rental information 
Deciding which pieces you want to rent for your wedding versus which ones you should buy can be a complicated process. Our livelihood is wrapped up in providing brides with great options for renting, but we understand that certain pieces can be worth buying and keeping, even if they cost a bit more. The real question is- how can brides determine whether or not an item is better rented than bought? Our system is to see if the item passes the Six "S" Test.

Something to consider is whether ...

Baby Shower Rentals

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, August 12, 2013, In : baby shower 
Is anyone else familiar with shower throwing anxiety? We've thrown our fair share of showers in our day, but we still remember vividly the overwhelming feeling of being on a shower task force without any idea where to start. Not only can showers require lots of thought and effort, they can be downright expensive and leave your closets full of vases and table clothes you will never use again. 

A great way to avoid pre-shower panic and post-shower clutter is to rent items rather than purchasing ...

The Great Coverup: Wedding Backdrop Ideas

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Thursday, June 27, 2013, In : Wedding Ideas 

Wedding backdrops are one trend this year that we are 100% on board with. Not only can backdrops be used to cover unsightly walls, they can add accent and texture to a room with minimal cost. 

We absolutely love this white backdrop that we have available this year:

 

We love that it is elegant, but can be combined with other elements or even DIY projects to make it more personal. We love how it looks on its own, but for a little more flavor, here are a couple of our favorite idea...

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Friday, June 21, 2013, In : Wedding Ideas 

Does anyone else love this year’s rustic wedding trend as much as we do? There is just something about burlap and sunflowers that is good for the soul. The other day, as we drooled over some of the internet’s finest rustic wedding ideas, we realized that some of our brides may not know where to start when it comes to acquiring pieces to make their rustic wedding day complete. Nothing is more frustrating than falling in love with a décor idea and not being able to find the piece...
