Rent vs buy wedding decoration

That’s it you have defined your wedding theme, you have a fairly precise idea of ​​the atmosphere of D-Day and what you want in terms of decoration! You have chosen to take care of it alone and not call on a decorator or a wedding planner. But quickly a crucial question arises: should you rent vs buy wedding decoration?

The answer is more in favour of renting, which is simpler and cheaper, although there are a few small exceptions.

There are several types of decoration: large furniture and small decoration. First, take stock with your reception room on what is provided. Chairs, tables, tablecloths and crockery are sometimes extra. In this case it may be interesting to rent them elsewhere if the proposed model does not suit you. Even if it means paying as much to have something that you like 100%!

Rent large parts without hesitation: chair, table, arch, furniture

Many places do not offer furniture or the one offered does not correspond to your desires. In this case, turn to rental sites. Most of the time this is the best solution, because it allows you to have parts that are inaccessible to purchase. There are pros of buying wedding décor as well as renting.
