Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, one you have probably spent years dreaming about. When color-coordinated linens, a beautiful outdoor tent and elaborate candelabras are your vision, don’t let your budget confine your imagination.

Your dream wedding can be possible, no matter how much you have to spend, when you rent from an American Rental Association (ARA) member rental store.

Planning your wedding should be fun, not frustrating, but the number of decisions can be overwhelming, especially when trying to find the most cost-effective solutions. Use the expert guidance of a rental store professional to help you find your way through the details.

Once you have determined the location of your event, search for a local ARA member rental store. The rental experts often know exactly what the venue will provide and what you will need to rent. They can point out the unique items available for rent, things that you may not have considered, and the little things you may forget about, like salt and pepper shakers.

Your ARA member rental store is a great place to discover the latest in wedding trends. Leave it to them to learn what is new in chair and table settings and designs, barware, cake stands, tents, food stations and more. They can tell you about the newest items available to make your special day stand out from the rest.

Some unique items that are available for rent and that can help make your day exceptional include:

• Slush machines used to create delicious fruit smoothies and frozen specialty drinks.

• Outdoor heaters to keep your guests perfectly comfortable.

• Chiller tables to serve drinks or specialty food items.

• Popcorn machines to give your guests a fun carnival treat.

• Chair covers and table linens in an array of colors to help make your place settings unforgettable.

• Dance floors that will transform any space into a party.

• Stanchions (posts and fencings) to direct your guests where to go.

Many ARA member rental stores provide even more custom service through their Certified Event Rental Professionals (CERPs) who are trained to help you choose the right rentals to make your dream wedding a reality. Most offer on-site support the day of your wedding, and that’s the day you’ll be looking for all the support you can get!

The wonderful experience and memories of your wedding day will be yours to own forever. For most everything else? Well, that you can rent.
