I have a renting dilemma about when and what to get for our late Oct., 100 attendee, indoor/outdoor wedding.
I’m getting married in Wethersfield, CT in October. The venue said they’d give my info to other brides getting married that weekend so that we could possibly split the cost of the tent/chair/table rentals. However, I haven’t received any details about this to date and our wedding is in 4 months.
We’re planning on renting:
- A 20x20 tent to put outdoors on the patio
- 3 cocktail tables to go under the tent so guests can mingle
- 85 white folding chairs for the ceremony to go on the lawn (is this enough for approx 85-100 guests?)
- a lighting fixture/chandelier for the tent outside
- an outdoor patio heater because it may be cold outside (but the reception is indoors)
- Cocktail table linens
Should I wait on renting these necessary items or sign a contract for renting these items now?
-also is it ok to rent from a few different vendors, some don’t carry all the items I need?
