So, you’ve found the wedding venue of your dreams and your Pinterest inspiration boards are crammed full of ideas for décor for the big day. Then you find out that the venue offers packages that includes décor rental. Now you have to figure out whether you should go with the all-inclusive deal or opt to rent the elements you need from a third party. Here are a few things to bear in mind while you’re making your decision:
Choice VS cost
All-inclusive packages will always be the most affordable route. After all, a wedding venue wants to make their offering as attractive as possible. However, when you rent your décor elements you will have a lot more options when it comes to tailoring the look and feel of your wedding day. For instance, you could opt for gold cutlery over standard silver, and create an elegant vintage vibe with all sorts of bits and bobs that may not form part of the venue’s décor selection. Weigh your options carefully.
Convenience VS self-organisation
When you go for a fixed venue package you have the assurance that everything you need is already on site; when you rent, you’ll have to organise these elements yourself. However, if you collaborate with wedding décor specialists who are able to help you streamline the process and assist you with delivery and pickup, it’s a lot less hassle than you think. The key is to choose a décor provider who will go the extra mile.
All in VS spreading the love
You may not even have considered this aspect of your decision, but in the end the money you spend on your wedding will be funnelled into various businesses. Choosing an all-inclusive package can be convenient, sure, but when you involve a third-party provider, you are spreading that love around. The bonus is that your décor rental provider will only be focussing on that particular aspect of your wedding, which means they can give it their full attention. This usually means that you’ll enjoy excellent service.
These guidelines should help you to decide whether to go the wedding décor rental route, or if you should stick with a structured venue package.
