Renting IT on a Budget
There are a lot of places around Myrtle Beach that one can rent anything they need for a event. Conway Rental, Rent a Party, as well as Hotz Rentals. After doing research on all three Hotz is the place to go. The website is www.Hotzcatering.com.
Most brides are on a budget in this economy and spending $9.00 on one chavari chair is outrageous. Frank the owner is a pleasure to work with. I know this from personal experience. Not only does he have a warehouse in the Myrtle beach area, but also in Detroit, Michigan. Linens, Chairs, Tables, he seems to have it all.
When first starting your search for these items, let him know your budget and stick to it. Go in with a open mind, but not an open wallet. Just because you want the orange pin tuck linens, does not mean they will be in your budget. My suggestion is if you have a wedding planner bring them along with you. They will know what your looking for and will always get the best deal if possible. Recently planning a family wedding, I had booked a company in Wilmington, N.C. called L and L Tent company. At the time this was the only company around that we could find with a white dance floor at an affordable price. Although the dance floor averaged out to around $600.00 you need to make sure the delivery fee is not more then the item you are renting. Renting all of your items at one place will keep your delivery costs down. I have learned this the hard way, hopefully the rest of you will learn from our mistakes. Most vendors only charge one flat rate, and not per mile. If a vendor does not have what you are looking for, then switch up your decor.
Pulling items from your home is always a great way to save in your budget. As a wedding planner myself, we love to work with things from your home. This way your event feels like you and your fiancé. Pull a great picture off your wall or that basket out of your garage that you never use. A planner or florist can use those items for just about anything. Debbie Benson has been in the industry for 17 years and can always answer any questions you may have. Debbie loves Habitat for Humanity for pulling unique items. Her contact number is 973-668-1843. At a recent wedding she designed, Debbie placed personal photographs of the important women in the brides life on each table. This was not only a way to include the guests but helped save money on centerpieces.
If your thinking about renting tables and chairs, ask the venue first for any available. Most places provide their own, unless the couple is interested in something special.
A wedding is about the couple not the items or how much you spend on them. Stay on budget, and “make it work” as Tim Gunn always says, and have a unique event!!!!!
