You're Engaged: Keep The Budget Under Control By Renting Key Items

Your significant other finally popped the question, and you said yes. Now that the excitement has worn off, it's time to face the cold reality that weddings can be downright expensive. If your budget doesn't quite fit the vision you had for your wedding, don't be discouraged. You don't have to settle for less. You can have the wedding of your dreams without breaking the budget. All you have to do is rent instead of buy. Many of the items that you'll need for your wedding are available for rental. Here are just a few of them.

Your Dress

When it comes to your wedding day, the dress is the most important decision you'll make. If you have the perfect dress in mind, but you just can't afford it, don't settle for something less. There are many online companies that will allow you to rent beautiful designer gowns for your wedding day. You can wear the dress of your dreams without breaking your wedding budget.

Your Bling

Nothing sets off a wedding gown like the perfect jewelry. Unfortunately, wedding bling can be quite expensive. Talk to local jewelers or go online to find the perfect jewelry to rent for your wedding. When renting your wedding day bling, don't forget about your bridesmaids and maid-of-honor.

Your Decorations

Purchasing your decorations can get expensive. That's where rental comes in. If you're not sure where to go to rent your wedding décor, you can start with party rental companies. If they don't have what you're looking for, reach out to the drama departments of your local high schools and colleges. They may have pieces that you can rent. If there are local community theatre groups in your area, be sure to reach out to them.

Your Linens

While you're making arrangements to rent all of the tables and chairs for your guests, don't forget to add your linens to the list. The party rental company you're working with will have all the coordinating linens you'll need to complete the look. Once the reception is over, you won't have to worry about washing the linen. The rental company will take care of that for you. While you're renting your linens, don't forget to take the thread count into consideration. The higher the thread count, the softer the linen will be. 

Now that it's time to plan for your big day, you don't have to let your budget get in the way. Renting key items for your wedding will allow you have the wedding of your dreams without going broke.
