How to decide what furniture hire you need for your wedding

January 18, 2021

How to decide what furniture hire you need for your wedding

With the COVID-19 pandemic having decimated the wedding season in 2020, wedding planners, brides and grooms, wedding venues and everyone involved in the wedding and events industry will be keeping everything crossed that we're able to see a return to weddings in 2021.

When it comes to wedding furniture hire, few companies in the land are able to compete with the range of wedding furniture rental available at Event Hire UK.

First and foremost, however, it's important to realise that many wedding venues, marquee companies, hotels and others already have their own furniture such as tables and chairs that are often hired to the bride and groom as part of the overall package.  This package often includes the wedding reception space, furniture, a drink for all your guests upon arrival, the 3 course meal and entertainment in the evening.  In other words, you get everything included for a single price, saving you time and effort in the planning stages.

That said, some would argue that the planning stages of a wedding are some of the most enjoyable, and that's why many brides and grooms choose a 'blank canvas' for their wedding, making it personal to them and then investing the time and energy into making every single element the best it can possibly be.  They often find that this helps to save a little bit of money in the budget!

So, whether your blank canvas is a tipi, village hall, sports club, hotel, conference centre or marquee in a field, let's have a think about wedding furniture rental you might need for your big day.

It's important to realise, first up, that the overall look and finish that you can achieve is dependent upon the interaction and combination of ALL the elements of your wedding, from the furniture, decor, music, catering and so on.  No single element is more important than the rest.  So, this is just us advising you on the furniture hire side of things!

It's safe to say that every wedding reception will involve some form of catering and usually this involves a sit down meal.  For this, you will need tables and chairs, and you're definitely in the right place here at Event Hire UK.  Typically, you'll have round banqueting tables for your guests, usually holding 8-10 guests (choose a 5ft round or 5ft 6" round table), along rectangular trestle tables for the top tables.  You'll also need wedding chairs - again, typically Chiavari chair hire is used but cross back chairs are very much on trend at the moment.  With us, you can choose your seat pad colour to be in keeping with your wedding colour scheme which is a nice touch, and you can also hire organza bows and chair ties to accessorise your wedding chairs even more - the world is your oyster.

It's also worth nothing that if you are holding your wedding at a venue which is providing your chair hire but you don't like the style, colour or quality, then you can also hire stretch lycra chair covers in black or white here at Event hire UK - these are a stunning way to achieve a beautiful look in a cost-effective way!

To dress your wedding tables, you'll need to hire linen such as ivory or white tablecloths and napkins along with top quality tableware in the form of crockery, cutlery and glassware.  Go for matching ranges of all - these will really enhance your table settings and contribute to the overall look.  Our Eto crockery range, Allure gold cutlery range and gold rimmed glassware ranges are perfect examples of luxury tableware hire, which is well worth the small additional investment for a day as important as your wedding day.

Don't forget the all-important dance floor and the mobile bar which you can also hire here online in the size and style that you want.

And finally, it's case of dressing your wedding venue how you like it.  It might be a good idea to use our display board and easel for your seating plan at the entrance to your wedding venue so guests know where and with whom they are seated for the wedding breakfast.  How about hiring our illuminated 6ft LOVE letters which not only look great but also make a fantastic backdrop for photography, or our illuminated heart arch walkway which makes a stunning entrance for the bride and groom.

Whatever wedding furniture hire you need and wherever you are in the country, the chances are that the team here at Event Hire UK will be able to assist you.  In a typical summer, we're supplying into around 30 weddings each weekend so this gives you a sense of the scale that we operate on.  For the complete range at the best prices, don't hesitate to browse and place your secure order online today with the furniture hire UK experts at Event Hire UK!
