It’s time to party!
One of the best times to get married is the autumn season. The weather is just perfect, not too hot or too cold. Most locations, if selected properly, can be magical environments. Indeed, the summer season is over; most tourists have gone back home, and things are once again calm and serene.
This means you have easy access to many beautiful places which are usually booked solid or heavily occupied during summer.
That is probably why fall weddings are so popular in North America. The beautiful weather and scenic views can provide memories that will last a lifetime. However, if you want to have an autumn wedding, then you need to plan in advance.
Here are five party rental tips that can help plan a successful autumn wedding:
1. Be Prepared for Unforeseen Circumstances
Even though the autumn season is generally very pretty, it can still be unpredictable. The weather may suddenly turn chilly, the roads may become hazardous, it may snow, or rain and wind gusts can sometimes create a real mess and prevent you from having an outdoor event. You need to consider all these elements and have a backup plan, or you may not have a wedding at all!
2. Indoors or Outdoors? That is the Question
Most people plan an outdoor wedding if they are getting married in Autumn. That’s probably one of the main reasons to get married during this season because you can enjoy the fresh air, the beautiful scenery, and the colorful foliage.
But it is generally recommended that even if you hold an outdoor event, you use a tent.
The size of the tent will depend on the number of people you are having over. Having a tent set up is a great idea as it allows for a place for people to seek shelter in case the weather turns bad, and you can then have the party inside. To make things simpler, it is best to have the professionals set up the tent. If you have never set up a tent, the chances are that it will collapse right in the middle of your ceremony. Some venues have tents already been set up, and you can rent them per hour.
Ultimately, you need to look at these things and plan accordingly.
3. When is the Big Date?
When planning your autumn wedding the main question is: When should you set up the party event? Experts say that you should try and have the wedding early on in the season when the weather is more predictable and still warm. If you choose a later date, it may start to get chilly and people will have to wear warmer clothes.
The colour foliage and beautiful scenery usually lasts during the first four to six weeks of autumn. Therefore, schedule accordingly so that you can make the most of this beautiful season.
4. Furniture & Cleaning for the Party
Depending on how many people you invite, you will also need furniture for the guests. The good thing is that most party rentals are available at a reasonable cost. To ensure that your party runs smoothly, hire servers who will serve the food and drinks and cleaners who will help you clean up the trash. But you need to be proactive about hiring these professionals because this is the wedding season and people are booked solid six months in advance.
5. You Should Never Forget About the Food
You can’t forget about food obviously.
Again, the best way to have a great autumn wedding is to hire a caterer, so you don’t have to worry about anything. But you must make sure that the caterer is reputable. The amount and type of food you order will again depend on your guests.
And, do not forget the most important part: You will need wine, champagne, and a wedding cake.
