Outdoor weddings are great because you can save money, you can do what you want when you want, and you can host more people. While you’re planning a backyard wedding reception, don’t get caught up in the excitement and forget these essential items.
Some brides think that if they plan their outdoor wedding in the summer, they don’t have to look for tent rentals. This is far from the truth because the weather is unpredictable. It could still rain on a summer day. Even if the sun is shining, your guests will want to be able to escape into the shade, and a tent can provide that.
Chair and table rentals
This one may seem obvious, but you want to make sure your guests have a place to sit during your reception. Although it can be assumed that many of your guests will be dancing, they will still want to take a break and even eat some cake.
Dance floor rentals
Speaking of dancing, you can actually rent a dance floor for your outdoor wedding reception. This will give your guests a defined space for dancing so they aren’t all over the place, and they won’t have to dance in the grass. So now you don’t have to worry that your bridesmaids will complain about grass stains on their heels.
Cooking equipment rentals
Your reception is the time where your guests eat dinner, so you need something to cook it with. You can rent industrial size grills and the like so you don’t have to cook only a dozen chicken breasts at a time and feed your hundred+ guests in batches.
Wedding linen rentals
Lastly, you don’t want to forget about covering your table rentals. Linens are a great way to make your outdoor reception look a little more sophisticated, and they can help you incorporate your wedding colors at the same time.
