All About Wedding Chair Cover Rental

If you thought all you needed to do for a wedding was to make sure you had plenty of chairs for the reception, think again. Long gone are the days where plain old ordinary chairs were good enough. Now, you need the appropriate chair covers to match the mood. Here’s what you need to know about wedding chair cover rental companies.

You have many options as to where to look to start researching rental companies. Most local party supply stores can arrange for the chairs and the covers as well. Many will even have some on the show room floor to show you your choices.

Also check out companies that do the party planning, not just sell and rent supplies. If you choose to hire a company like this you may also be able to get professional design advice as to what type of covers and designs might be best suited for your particular wedding needs. Not all weddings need white covers with bows!

Certain covers will only fit certain chairs, and if you are looking for chair covers online, you need to make certain you are ordering the right ones. Typical rental chairs are either tall square backs or the more common rounded backs for the folding chairs. Depending on the company you may even be able to pick from more choices. Many companies you find online will have local offices from where the covers will be shipped or delivered by van.

You might also want to get some references from these companies, too. Problems could arise that you’d never think of, until they happen. If you can get a reference from someone who has used the services of a particular company, that’s a great place to start. Also check online bulletin boards. If a website has their own “testimonial” section, don’t pay much attention. These testimonials can easily be faked (for any company, actually).

Liability will differ between companies as well. There’s a certain level of “normal wear and tear” to be expected when you rent wedding chair covers, but what one company considers normal conditions might be for a typical indoor reception at a hall, while your specific plans call for an outdoor function at the beach. Before signing a contract, make sure you know what additional charges you might be responsible for once the covers are returned.

All About Wedding Event Planning

If you are in charge of being the event planning specialist for a wedding reception, wedding rehearsal, or something else that goes along with being involved with the wedding then chances are that you know it is a huge responsibility. Not only are the bride and the groom counting on you to make sure that every aspect of their wedding reception goes smoothly, but all of your event planning skills are being relied upon for the success of the whole event! Even though not many people will realize if a specific faux pax is made on your part throughout the reception or wedding event because it may be so small in nature, chances are that you realized that you have messed up. Here are some things about wedding event planning that you should know about in order to create the perfect wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, and coordinating the cleanup efforts afterwards as well!

The Bride and the Groom

Even though the person charged with event planning for the wedding reception or the rehearsal dinner may feel overwhelmed at the great responsibility that he or she has, an important thing for the event planner to realize is that the wedding and everything pertaining to the wedding is all about the bride and the groom. Even though a lot of what’s going on will feel like it has to do with the event planner him or her self, chances are that it will only feel that way because there is added pressure on the individual to make sure that things go off without a hitch!

Coordinating the Rehearsal Dinner

The rehearsal is just one aspect about wedding event planning that definitely should not be taken lightly! Even though all of the wedding attendants are not required to go to the rehearsal dinner for the bride and the groom, it would be a good idea if the wedding event planner were to convince everyone to attend! In addition, another very important thing that must be thought about when it comes to the wedding rehearsal dinner is where it will be held, what food will be eaten, and how long it should last. Of course, a lot of these things will be chosen by the bride and the groom itself, but the wedding event planner will obviously have to help them make some of the more important decisions, such as where it will be held and also to make sure the reservations are in place!
