Couples are constantly wondering, “Why should I rent my wedding decor?” – so this Oregon wedding planner decided to interview a local rental company to get some in-depth answers for you!
Let’s get into it!
Tell us more about your business. What do you offer?
Hello friends! I’m Janane, the owner of Oregon Elevated Event Rentals based in Philomath, Oregon. We provide speciality rentals to all areas within Oregon, from small rentals like votives to larger inventory like furniture and backdrops! We like to have a variety of styles, mainly focusing on boho (that’s our jam!), modern, and vintage themes, and we love anything that gives off an “eclectic look”.
Wondering why you should rent your wedding decor? Let’s chat!
When curating a rental collection, I think your personal style will really shine through and make your company unique from the rental company next door! But I do have a unique approach of having a very visual company. We are working on ways to really be that piece between your Pinterest board and the physical execution of your vision!
I’m a person who cares about aesthetic, down to the seemingly insignificant details. When planning an event, I realized that caring about the little elements of decor can get expensive quickly! This got me thinking about how to solve the solution of being able to have trendy, luxe design elements without having to go out and buy everything! And Oregon Elevated Events was born!
I’m constantly dreaming and developing new ideas and concepts. A big dream of mine is bringing some Joshua Tree vibes to Oregon!
I wish people knew how much value a rental company can bring at the beginning of the wedding planning process. It definitely helps when you have a wedding planner, but I would recommend scheduling a rental and styling tour once you set your theme! You can play around with decor, and it can really help you decide what you really like!
I definitely can see how that would be appealing HOWEVER There is no guarantee you will be able to sell your items after your wedding. Styles change, things get broken or lost, or people flake out for marketplace purchases. While you wait to potentially sell your items, you have to store it all! Depending on how design heavy your wedding was or how large, it could be a lot of items!
Even if you manage to sell your items after your wedding, you most likely won’t get full price for your items. Plus that’s a lot of money and investment you have to front before your wedding, it adds up QUICK. This could be a major financial strain, which adds even more stress to the wedding planning process.
Also, you have to consider your time. While it might seem easier to just go and buy your decor, it is extremely time consuming. From Facebook Marketplace pickups (and the scrolling for the hidden gems), Hobby lobby runs and online shopping, that’s a big piece that a lot of couples overlook. Your time is valuable, especially when wedding planning!
Book me! Just kidding 🙂
But for real, rental companies definitely bring a lot of value to your wedding day! You should rent your wedding decor to release stress and delegate the design elements of your wedding to someone else. I also think finding a wedding planner and rental company that has a strong vendor relationship is really key in bringing your design plan to life!
At Daisy + Sun, we highly recommend working with a rental company that not only has your design elements, but will add a unique client experience. Janane with Oregon Elevated Events is a great choice for your decor options, big or small.
