So I am working on getting together a budget so that I can better stick to a number in my head when shopping around for different aspects of my wedding. I already went way overboard on my photographer (which, it is the most important thing to me so I am trying to just let it go now) but now I am trying to cut costs as much as possible without being disappointed in the end. I haven’t talked to a rental company yet but I am trying to get an idea of what rentals are going to cost me. Here is the scenario
-closed in pavillion, but might need a few heaters
-glasswear (wine, water,champagne)
-Plates (b&b, salad, dinner, dessert)
-tray stands and large trays
-this place has a kitchen, but might need hot boxes. I need to investigate further
I don’t need linens through them as I am doing them through my caterer and on my own. So, can anyone tell me what they paid for rentals like this? And from where. .
Thanks hive 🙂

We have a guest list for 180 and are bringing everything in ourselves. Our rental prices look like:
$8.00/table (8ft rectangular)
$1.75 per set of cutlery and dishes (per person)
$8.00 per table cloth (white)
$4.00 per table runner (purple)
$.25/wine glass and/or water glass
The passing trays, or tray stands I cannot help with. We also have a limited kitchen, but caterer is familiar with the kitchen and has worked in it before so bring in everything he needs.
No heater’s for us, as we’re in July 🙂
Hope this helps a little.

@RingPup: It does, thank you! I hope that those prices will be similar to what I find. I haven’t talked to a rental company yet because a lot of it we are doing through the restaurant that is catering it. However she mentioned something like 8,000 dollars for rentals which I find ridiculous, and I think she is thinking about weddings she has done where they were in a tent and so you needed to get absolutely everything including kitchen. She isn’t factoring in that we have a kitchen. So I need to talk to her. They also REALLY want us to have it at the restaurant so I am wondering if she gave that quote to FIs mom to try to get us to want to do it at the restaurant and not off site.

Anyone else have any rentals similar to this that they have priced out?
