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...

Posted by Brandy Marshall on Monday, August 4, 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...

 Is there anything in the world quite as romantic as candle light? Saying “I do” in the soft glow of dusk surrounded by the warm glow of flickering candles can set quite a mood… provided that the candles don’t accidentally light your dress and/or groom ablaze in the process.

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.

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.

Choosing a Seat

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:
