Let's face it - weddings can be expensive! Even though it's a lot of fun to treat yourself and feel pampered on your big day, it is also thrilling when you find ways to make your wedding feel just like you've imagined it, while still not breaking the budget. Speaking as a girl who grew up in a home where checking the sale rack was the obvious first step when shopping, I can say confidently that that I am all about helping our brides get the most bang for their buck! One way to do that is to get creative with using your rentals to serve more than one decor purpose. Yay for decor hacks! So keep reading to find out four different ways you can use your vintage chair rentals (in this case our Liam + Mason wingback chairs) in your wedding:
1. His and Hers Seating for the Head Table
What better day to feel like a king and queen than on your wedding day?! Renting specialty chairs for the bride and groom to enjoy during the reception not only will make them feel like a million dollars, it will also elevate your head table decor and give your guests a decorative focal point to admire.
2. Cocktail Hour Lounge Seating
Event lounges are the perfect way to make your wedding feel cozy and personable for you and your guests. Using vintage + specialty seating to create that lounge will leave every guest picking out their favorite chair to sit in, and will make for gorgeous photos for you to reminisce over later!
3. Striking Portrait Props
Don't let those vintage pieces sit unattended waiting for guests to arrive - grab them during your wedding portraits to use as one-of-a-kind props. And not just for the happy couple - snag a photo of the ring bearer + flower girl, or the bride surrounded by her bridesmaids...the possibilities are endless!
4. Detail Shots Backdrop
Invitation flat-lays, shots of the bride's jewelry or shoes, capturing the rings - give all of these moments a unique twist by using your vintage chairs as the backdrop. It adds character to these classic shots and will tie in your wedding colors beautifully...need we say more?
