Now that the “big question” has been asked, it’s easy to start feeling overwhelmed by all the questions that proceed after that. You’ve got excited family members and friends/co-workers chiming in about their wedding planning ideas. First things first, always remember that it’s your day and no one else’s day to plan.

So, take a moment to read some of our top tips that we’ve seen work wonders for organizing and planning, even in the beginning stages! At Grand Event Rentals, we’ve seen it all, from elaborate black tie events to small intimate settings, beautiful backyard weddings, and every celebration in between!

So, let’s jump right in with…

#1 – Narrow down the biggest questions, as a couple, first. Meaning: Is there a time of year you want to get married? Local or destination wedding? Big or small and intimate? Need expanded outdoor space for safety? Narrowing down some of these important decisions first, will help drive your planning moving forward! You can then start planning tours of local venues, or browsing the internet for destination weddings and details. If you need outdoor space expanded, we offer a huge selection of tented structures to help you celebrate safely, and in style!

#2 – Put together a plan for your wedding “A” team: We’re talking the vendor “all stars” to help you pull off one of the biggest moments in your life! Consider a wedding planner, if budget allows, to help plan your day down to the littlest details and help relieve some of the planning to-do’s. You can also opt for “day of” coordinators on site at your venue, that can help with details during the day, so be sure to check venue details while you tour!

Other wedding vendors you’ll need to consider: caterer, cake/desserts, photographer, florals and a rental company. When it comes to your rentals, we hope you’ll considering meeting with us!

#3 – Narrow down your theme! Meaning: style, colors, outdoor vs indoor, farm-style vs elegant, cocktail attire, etc etc. Once you start to visualize what you would want your big day to “look” like, you can search for inspiration online, on wedding planning apps and in magazines!

If you come to tour our showroom, our design consultants will work with you to plan out the rentals that best fit your theme, your location and day of needs! We even offer mock-tables to setup rentals, as you narrow down your selections ahead of time! Just think, you can actually see your tables before the big day! It’s a huge help for planning out details – You can even bring your wedding planners and/or mock-up menus and florals to see the entire setting come together!

#4 – Organize the day of events, meaning: speeches, dances, songs for the ceremony and the play list for the dancing portion of the evening. Having a good idea of what the event timeline looks like and who will be speaking.

#5 – Add your own unique touches to every part of the day! Don’t be afraid to do things differently or add-in special touches that are meaningful to you as a couple, and as a family. Let your individual styles come through in the design details, your bridesmaid dresses, photography poses and the ceremony!

#6 – This one’s important! Always remember that this is your day and your celebration as a couple. It’s absolutely okay to plan, design and use vendors that fit you best! There will be lots of recommendations and advice given throughout the planning process, BUT once the big day arrives, stop and take time to soak it all in. It goes by fast!
