Spring means three things for us – warmer days, lighter evenings and weddings! As we move into April we’re already busy taking orders for wedding hire to be delivered up and down the region’s venues. We’ve put together this short guide to getting the best from your wedding hire to help make sure your big day is special for the right reasons.
Wedding Hire dos and don’ts: Do book early
While we never want to turn business away this year shows every sign of being our busiest yet – which means delivery slots are filling up fast. We pride ourselves on our huge ranges of cutlery and crockery hire, tables and chairs for hire along with beautiful linen hire but these stocks are finite and we can only do so much.
What this means in practical terms is that it’s wise to get your wedding hire order in early. We understand that numbers can sometimes change and we can work with that – you can alter your order up to 72 hours prior to delivery – which can come as a relief if someone finally decides that they can make it after all on short notice.
Wedding Hire dos and don’ts: Don’t worry about delivery and collection
We pride ourselves on our commitment to customer service. We offer delivery and collection of wedding hire items seven days a week, 8am to 8pm. We’ve built a rapport with many wedding venues in the area and can deliver directly to your venue to save you any hassle.
We recommend that we deliver items the day before a wedding and collect the day after – for the simple reason that it’s easy to fix a problem with 20 hours until the big day, it’s not so easy if there is just 20 minutes. Our standard hire period is three days – so you don’t need to worry that it’s going to cost you more in hire charges either.
Wedding Hire dos and don’ts: Do ask us if you need anything specific
We carry over 8,000 lines of glassware, crockery and furniture hire but we don’t stop there. If there is a specific requirement for your wedding hire please drop us a message and let us know and we will do our best to try to meet that. We’ve delivered to literally thousands of weddings so we’re well aware that individual aesthetics very much come into play – just let us know.
Using our extensive industry knowledge and contacts we can provide additional services such as waiting staff, chefs or mobile bars – although the more notice we can be given, the better in these circumstances.
