Wedding equipment hire in different seasons

Wedding equipment hire in different seasons

"Love is in the air!".  We all love a good wedding, which is a time for friends and family to get together and celebrate the love between two people. Of course, weddings today take on many forms, though the classic English traditional wedding still remains the most popular.

A wedding will usually involve some formalities, but then there's a big party afterwards where we can all let our hair down and enjoy the occasion late into the evening - and we most certainly all deserve a party after what many of us have been through for the past couple of years!  The wedding industry was decimated as a result of the pandemic, and so it's nice to see couples up and down the country getting to finally enjoy their special day, after multitudes of cancellations and postponements, leading many to wonder if it was ever going to happen at all!

When it comes to wedding equipment hire, though, does the season make any difference to what you need?

Summer wedding equipment hire

The vast majority of these classic English weddings take place in the Summer months, and rightly so.  The Summer months of June, July and august usually bring with them warm weather and sunshine (assuming the great British weather is behaving itself!), which means that your guests can enjoy the outside area at your wedding venue, and it's also perfect for your wedding photos!

Many wedding venues are country houses, large hotels or stately homes with an abundance of outdoor space and so offer your guests the chance to mingle and socialise outside with a glass of fizz or a Pimms & lemonade, or even enjoy some quintessentially English garden games such as croquet, for example!

If you're looking to utilise this outdoor space effectively, work with your venue to ensure that they have got sufficient outdoor furniture hire such as outdoor rattan garden sets, for instance, so that your guests can enjoy the party outside, long into the evening.  It might also be that you want to lay on a buffet-style service for your evening guests, and so why not do away with limp sandwiches and pork pie, and offer a hog roast or even a BBQ - something different which will most definitely be appreciated by your guests, young and old!

Inside, traditional Summer weddings will usually go down the white or ivory theme, and so linen such as ivory wedding tablecloths and napkins will be in big demand.  By the same token, limewash Chiavari chairs will usually be the order of the day, in keeping with this white wedding look and finish.

That's not to say, of course, that weddings can't also take place in other seasons of the year, and the likelihood is that this will indeed affect the wedding equipment hire list.

Autumn wedding equipment rental

Autumnal weddings, for example, are growing in popularity, not only because the daters are usually more readily available, but also because it's not in the height of summer and so is sometimes cheaper at your wedding venue!  Of course, you take your chances with the weather, but if you plan for the worst, then it can only be good!  You never know, you might strike lucky and have some wonderful backdrops for your wedding photos, such as the gold and burgundy leaves on the trees, for instance.  

Inside you might want to theme your wedding in this way, with these autumnal colours forming the basis of everything you do, from the colour of the balloons, through to the seat pad colour of your Chiavari chairs, through to the burgundy colour of the bridesmaids dresses.  All these are, of course, just ideas of how you could style your Autumnal wedding, and the wedding equipment hire you might need when the time comes.

Equipment hire for Christmas weddings

And finally, Christmas weddings are very popular - think of open fires, a glass of mulled wine and a festive mince pie.  What could be better than holding your wedding at a time of year when everyone loves to party anyway!  Why not choose to hire gold Chiavari chairs along with matching gold seat pads, and you could even extend this gold colour scheme through to your tableware with gold cutlery hire and gold rimmed glassware, for instance.  Again, just a few ideas of how you can hire relevant wedding equipment hire at affordable prices.

Whatever the time of year for your wedding, always try to personalise it as much as possible and remember, it's not always the most expensive and lavish weddings that people remember.
