Rentals - OMG

Hi everyone,  Trying to finalize catering and rentals and I'm freaking out a little bit.  We are getting married at Lanikonua so we have to rent EVERYTHING!  Wow, there are so many pieces!!  Do I really need all of these things?...drapes, overlays, etc.   I would love to hear your thoughts.  Trying to save $$ wherever I can.  This is a really big expense and I don't even know how much lighting is going to be.  Probably not going to go too crazy there.  Any ideas on how to save, I would really appreciate!  TIA!

    Our WC took care of our rentals for us which was great!    We just told her how we pictured set-up and she made us a diagram.  She saved us money by re-using ceremony chairs for reception and also re-used some tables and gave us cost tips on what lighting to use.

    Drapes, overlays, etc. are not necessary, espeically if cost is an issue.  Let the natural beauty of the venue shine!

    Even though I'm getting married at Lani, I'm not much help. I had my coordinator go over everything and slash where she could. You're so right, though--I had no idea what kind of rentals went into a wedding. Crazy.
