Find Your Nashville Wedding Event Rentals
Alright, you are in the process of planning all of the details about your wedding and you are starting to realize that you are going to need to rent a few items. As you go down through the list, you start wondering where you are going to get these items: tables, chairs, plates, napkins, table cloths, and more. Well, it looks like you are going to need to find a quality event rental company in order to rent all of these much needed items. But you realize that you have never had any experience trying to find a company like this and you do not have a clue as to how the process even works. One thing we need to let you know upfront is that many of the event rental companies actually will charge you around the same rate but the key to pay attention to is the quality of the items. The quality can really vary. So, what we are saying is that you have your work cut out for you as you start to search throughout the Nashville area for an event rental company that can provide you with the quality that you need and deserve. Keep in mind that there are some definite questions that you want to ask and get the answers to before you decide which event rental company to go with. With hope the guide below helps you as you start your search.
You need a place to begin, that is always a good thing. Your first task is to accumulate vendors that you feel you would like to further investigate. Start with an easy Google search for "rental companies in the Nashville area." This should give you several results for you to check out. Another great source is your family, friends and coworkers. There is a great chance that one or more of them have used an event rental company at some point for something. But probably one of your best sources are your wedding vendors that you have already hired. They should know of some reputable companies that would be worth checking out. When you have a list of a few companies to check out, you want to make a site visit to the companies you are interested in. You need to be armed with questions and be ready to answer questions. Be ready to provide them with your guest count and information on your reception venue. Talk about specific items they have available. Take a look at their warehouse and check out the quality of their inventory. Have them break down their fees per item. They might offer package deals, we suggest that you ask. If you can hold your wedding during an off time, you will save a lot of money on your rental items. Talk about delivery, set-up and tear-down and whether they will coordinate everything with your venues.
Do you need tents, if so, ask about the various sizes they have available. Another great questions is whether they own the items that they rent? It has been our experience that the quality of the inventory is much higher when this is the case. When it comes to glassware, you really need to sit down with the event rental company and figure our how many glasses you will need. You are usually talking about three per guest.
Find out what the policy is if you or your guests damage any of the rental items. What if any of the items turn up missing? Will they have a representative on site that will act as your contact for the day? This is essential and you should hear a resounding yes. Once you find a company that you feel real confidence in, you will want to have a contract written up that states what kind of items they will be providing you and how many and what you will have to pay in terms of the fee. Also, if there are separate charges for delivery, you will want to see that specified as well.
