Planning A Backyard Wedding? You'll Need To Rent The Following Items

Are you planning to have your wedding in your backyard? If so, it brings some challenges that do not come up with having the wedding at a venue. While you normally have all the basics supplied for you at the venue for the ceremony and reception, many of those items now need to be rented. Here are some things to consider when deciding on your essential wedding rentals.


You need to have chairs for everyone to sit in, so you'll have to decide what kind of chairs you want and how many you want to get. You can approach the situation in a couple of ways. If you are on a budget, you can have a single chair for each person in attendance. Of course, this may mean that the chairs will need to be moved from the ceremony location to the reception location. You may feel odd asking your guests to move their own chairs, so you might need to hire people to move the chairs for your guests. The alternative is to rent two sets of chairs, which will increase your rental costs.

There is also the decision about how fancy you want the chairs to be. You can go with a folding chair, but the look of the chair may not match the aesthetics that you want to have as you are walking down the aisle. This can be corrected by renting decorative chair covers that give the folding chairs a bit more elegance. 


It is a good idea to come up with a plan for inclement weather during your wedding. As much as you may love the idea of getting married under the stars, know that it won't be possible if it is raining on your wedding day. You should rent a tent to set up at your location that is big enough to have both the ceremony and reception. Make sure that the tent can accommodate a layout for how you want to have the ceremony, and then consider switching the arrangement for the reception later on. If you do not plan for a worst-case scenario, you may find yourself in a situation where a backup plan is not in place.

These are just a few items you need to rent for your backyard wedding. For more ideas about what you need, reach out to a wedding supplies rental company. They'll let you know about all of the things you're likely not thinking about.
