1. Tables and Chairs

First and foremost your guests are going to need somewhere to sit at the wedding and/or reception. Renting tables and chairs for your wedding is one of the most common rental items on our list of 6 Things You Should Rent For Your Wedding. Whether you are having an outdoor wedding such as on the beach or in your backyard, tables and chairs are a must-have. In addition, if you want to opt out of the banquet-style chairs provided by most venues, then you may want to consider renting chairs. They come in a variety of styles and colors depending on your style.

2. Tents

Also, on our list of 6 Things You Should Rent For Your Wedding is tents. Tents are very popular if you plan on having an outdoor or backyard wedding. Tents provide shade for those outdoor summer weddings. Some couples who have chosen to have an outdoor wedding rent tents as a "Plan B" or "rain plan" just in case the weather decides it doesn't want to cooperate on the wedding day.

3. Dance Floor

Yes, you can rent a dance floor for your wedding. If you've rented a ballroom there is no need to rent a dance floor, of course. However, if you are having a backyard or outdoor wedding, renting a dance floor is an option for you. These dance floors come in a variety of materials from plexiglass to hardwood. You can add lighting and even monograms to the dance floor if you want to wow your guests.

4. Restrooms

Your traditional port-a-potties have come a long way from the ones you are used to. Some amazing companies that provide upscale portable restroom options include Johnson John's. So, if you are having a wedding in a rustic location such as a barn or a more rural area then renting a portable restroom would be ideal. Not only that, if you are having a wedding at your home and don't want all of your guests in and out your house, a portable restroom is a good alternative.

5. Lighting

When it comes to lighting, we all love the natural light or sunlight if you will. One of the main reasons you should consider a light rental company is for photos of your wedding day. The right lighting can make or break your wedding photos. You can ask any photographer.

6. Dinnerware, Stemware, and Flatware

When it comes to the design elements of your wedding, intimate details such as the dinnerware, stemware, and flatware are key elements. The good thing about it is that you can rent all of these items from an extensive list which includes charge plates, champagne flutes, and silverware. Be sure to consult with your event designer when choosing your dinnerware, stemware, and flatware for a cohesive atmosphere throughout your wedding decor.
