Become a Top Wedding Planner – Lessons on Party Rental from Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine


Wedding Reception Using Party Rental Items

The Spring 2010 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings magazine has an excellent article on selecting rental items for wedding receptions that will not only be a help to you but also your bride. The article, “Luxe On Loan”, was written by Matthew Robbins of Matthew Robbins Design and if you don’t have a copy of the magazine,  it also posted on the Martha Stewart Weddings website.

As a wedding planner, what you need to do before taking your bride to a party rental company is to visit there first. In fact, get to know a few party rental companies in your area and learn the quality of their items and their customer service before you recommend any of them. You will find that the some rental companies keep their items in immaculate condition, always have or have access to the latest in china, linen and chair covers that your brides could possible want, give excellent suggestions and always deliver on time. But there are also others whose items look well-used or only offer the most basic items or whose customer service could use improvement. So take the time to meet and network with the vendors.

If you don’t have access locally to a variety of vendors, there are many companies who are willing to ship items, especially linens, to you. BBJ Linen and Creative Coverings, vendors who often exhibit at conferences for wedding and event planners, are two that are up on the latest trends, have excellent websites with ideas for you and your brides and offer good customer service. Of course, do your research before doing any online rental.
