It’s pretty standard to rent all of that stuff–it’s generally cheaper than buying it and then you don’t have to deal with it cluttering up your house before or after the wedding.  I’m renting linens for the tables and a couple of racks of wineglasses for use as centerpieces.

We went through the local florist. That way they brought, set-up and took down everything. I’d check locally so you don’t have to do the work on the day of.

We’re renting everything through the florists. Most florists will make a deal with you that includes rentals once you pick out your florals.

Check with your florist and caterers–they can usually get you good rates.  You can also just Yelp for your area–the place my venue recommended had a minimum rental amount that was 3x what I would have needed to spend.  WHAT.  So I just called around, read Yelp reviews and am checking online (linen rentals online can be really cheap) for the best deals.

I bought my linens and they were cheaper than renting.  I bought mine through favor mart.  They were not the highest quality, but they were almost identical to the ones from the local rental place.  At the end of our wedding, my venue bought most of them and I kept a few because we will use them for parties at our house.  A friend bought hers throught the same place and her venue bought them from her also, that is where I got the idea to offer them to the venue.  Something that you may look into.

Do a search for local vendors for your rentals. It only makes sense to rent as locally as you can, otherwsie shipping charges can be outrageous.

 

@tksjewelry:  makes an excellent point about linens. Many times it is less expensive to buy then sell them after the wedding.

Check craigslist. You can check all the craigslist.com sites at the same time

go to http://www.google.com

enter     site:craigslist.org

then add what you are looking for e.g brown tablecloths.

You can buy linens that have only been used once, at about half the cost of new, then sell them to recoup your cost.
