Our event managers are wedding stylists and can help bring your vision to life. They can select pieces for you, make styling suggestions and set it all up on the day. However, if you opt to just hire, here’s three simple steps to get the most out of your props:

Step 1: Where is it going?

If you’re styling your ceremony, it doesn’t mean props have to stay at the same location. Think about where your guests will be later.  You can use lanterns to accent hallway and entrances or reuse your signing table and chairs for your wedding breakfast.

Step 2: What is it doing?

You might think this is an obvious one. A rug is just a rug, right? But it can do so much more than just bring a seating area together. You can use them to make your aisle stand out or to frame you and your partner when you say, ‘I Do’.

Step 3: Who is it for?

If your wedding reception is in a large venue, you may have several lounge areas to accommodate children, elderly guests or as a quiet retreat. Why not reinvent a space for different people throughout the day. A kid’s corner won’t be needed late at night so clear off the coffee table from crayons and reuse it as a rest spot for your dancing feet.  Read more here ‘What Furniture Shall I Have At My Wedding?’ about how to decide what furniture is best.

By considering the use of furniture throughout the day and the flow of your reception, you can map where your styling will be seen most. You don’t want to hire a beautiful loveseat for it to become neglected by the end of the night. It might sound simple, but our three steps will help you make the most out of your prop hire and continue a theme throughout your wedding.
