Lounge Areas

Think couches, chairs, ottomans, poufs, coffee tables, and side tables. Lounge areas give your guests a designated space to relax, mingle, sip cocktails and take it all in! Be sure to accommodate for any necessary or upgraded chairs + tables (dining tables, cocktail tables, dessert tables) not included by your venue.

 

Special Ceremony Furniture

Does your ceremony require a special seating area or an altar that wows? Often, your rental company can accommodate these needs and help you create a spectacular and functional ceremony space. Find Austin wedding rentals from vendors below that offer stylish and top trending furniture for your big day décor needs:

Wedding Tabletop Decor Rentals Austin

Tabletop decor rentals are the items that take your wedding tables from boring to WOW. If your budget doesn’t allow for upgraded linens or custom place settings on every table, consider splurging for just the head table or sweetheart table.

 

Linens

This includes table covering linens, napkins, runners, and any drapery you might want around your wedding. Don’t be afraid to make it as ethereal as your personal style desires!

 

Place Settings

When designing your wedding, you’ll want to rent items like china, chargers, plates, flatware, and glassware – this is where you can mix and match your dream color scheme to create the perfect, inviting spot to make each and every guest feel special!

Questions to Ask Your Wedding Rental Company

How many do I need of each item? An experienced, professional rental company can help you estimate the perfect quantities based on your expected guest count.

What are the fees? Be aware of any fees for setup, delivery, damage deposits and charges for damaged/lost items. Make sure you know exactly which fees are included within your cost and which fees are incidental/extra.

How are delivery and setup handled? Are there special instructions to operate anything you won’t be setting up?

Are the items I’m viewing in your catalog warehouse samples/stock photos or pictures of the actual rental items in your inventory?

You’ll also want to consult with your venue before meeting with the rental company to be aware of what’s included with your venue rental package.
