Tables are important wedding party supplies. In addition to providing spaces to place wedding centerpieces and other items, they also serve as important parts of the wedding décor. There are many types of wedding tables that you can go for. To rent the right ones you need to consider a number of factors:
Style of the party table
Wedding tables come in different styles that range from old to modern styles. Your choice should be informed by the theme of the event. If you are going to have an elegant theme, go with tables that have a modern look.
Shape of the table
Just like the party tables come in different styles, they also come in different shapes. The most common shapes are: Rectangle, round, banquet, large square, half-round, and cocktail. Your choice depends on the theme and function. For example, a cocktail table is ideal if planning to serve cocktails in your wedding party.
Material of the table
Most of the rental tables are made from plywood, but it’s not unusual to find some that are made from aluminum, laminate, plastic, acrylic and polyethylene. The material that you choose depends on the image that you want to create. If you want to create a high-end look you can’t use plastic tables, but if throwing a wedding party where the image isn’t of much importance, you can go ahead and use them.
Color of the rental tables
While most rental tables come with a natural wood grain finish, there are some that are slate, almond, granite and white. As rule of thumb, go with a color that complements the look of the party.
Size of the table
This is an important factor that many people ignore. For you to have a great experience, you should go with a table that will perfectly fit your space. If you aren’t sure of the size of the venue where you will be having the event, always take its measurements before you head to the rental company.
Tips to remember when renting party tables
To rent the right units you need to rent them from a reputable party rental company. To save money and time, rent all the wedding supplies from the same company. Before renting, analyze the supplies and ensure that they are of high quality. Different companies have different return policies. Some companies will require you to return the items the same day while others will ask you to return the items the following day. Before getting into a contract with the party rentals first go through the return policies and ensure that the policies work for you.
