Whether you're holding a small or large wedding reception, you can use wedding rental pieces to add ambiance, seating, and other logistics to your venue. No matter what your budget is, you can find one or more rental pieces to transform your reception into the event of your dreams. 

Event rentals, which include everything from table and chair sets to LED-lit dance floors, can help give a wedding reception venue a customized appearance, as you can use the items to coordinate with the overall decor theme, such as a beach-inspired look. You can also use them in almost any type of venue, such as a rustic country barn, an elegant reception hall or ballroom, or a casual country club.

Renting items to use during your reception can help you save money, since you won't have to purchase expensive items that you'll only use once. Renting the pieces is also convenient, since many event companies will help you set up and break down before and after the reception. This will come in especially handy when dealing with heavy or difficult-to-assemble items.

Here are some event rental ideas to consider for your wedding reception:

1. Table and Chair Sets

The right table and chair options are essential to making your guests feel comfortable throughout the evening. Renting the sets will help ensure you have enough seating to accommodate all of your family and friends, as you can add more to your order if the guest list grows.

Keep things casual with basic wood or folding chairs, or give the event space an elegant touch with Chiavari chairs, which come in an array of colors and finishes. You can also rent matching tablecloths and linens, including cloth napkins and even chair sashes to add splashes of color to the venue. 

2. Dance Floors and Cocktail Bars

Liven up your reception with LED-lit dance floors, which are designed to fit into a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces and cocktail bars. You can have a few different stationary bars set up around the space, or rent mobile ones on wheels to deliver drinks to guests throughout the celebration.

The lit-up dance floors come in a wide range of colors, such as red or blue, to match the reception theme. Some floor models display moving images or videos, such as picture montages, as a sentimental touch. 

3. Tents

If you're holding your event outdoors, such as in a friend's backyard or a vineyard, consider renting a tent in case of bad weather. Tents are also convenient ways to separate different areas of the event, such as for dining and dancing.

You can also rent specific tent lighting elements to help give the temporary space a warm look and feel.
