Wedding photos flooded my facebook news feed each weekend, seems like there are more wedding bells ringing in the year 2012! Oh well, even my own wedding is coming up this year end :)
With less than 5 months to the actual day, I am starting on my shopping list - bridesmaid dresses, acessories, unique veil, ring holder, tea ceremony set and decors for bedroom, car, guest tables.....endless! I wonder where I should keep these items after the wedding comes to an end (O_o)?!
And so I thought, "Even 2nd hand items will need storage space. Might as well rent!" Or if any happily-married brides would be so kind to let me inherit their items, I will be extremely grateful!
Here are the top 10 things I am looking to rent for my wedding:
1. Bridesmaid Accessories x 5
Looking for spring-themed accessories for my bridesmaids to match their teal toga dresses! See those floral garlands on their hair? So lovely!
2. Wedding Ring Bearer Pillow x 1
If you have some really awesome out-of-the world kind of ring bearer pillows, please....rent it to me. I have seen many designs in the retail shops, but none are catching my eye.
Also, I am interested if you own a customized/handmade ring pillow (click here to view)!
3. Flower Girl Baskets x 2
Need flower baskets with embroidery for adorable flower girls. Something petite for 7 year olds.
4. Bride's Hand Bouquet
It has become quite a trend for brides to carry bouquet made of materials such as crystals (click here to view), pearls or sparkling bits... Good that these bouquets are re-usable! For new brides like myself to rent :D
5. Guest Registration Table Decor
Need a mix of aqua & clear acrylic gems to decorate the table. Open to consider other colours too!
6. Ang Bao Box x 1
Would love to have such extravagant ang bao box to be sitting at my guest table!! Bigger space to welcome more ang baos :p Prefer if your box has lace or pearls on it.
7. Wedding Parasols/Umbrellas x 1
Fashionable pieces to spice up my actual day photos. Vintage white parasol wanted!
8. Traditional Tea Ceremony Set x 1
Gonna rent this set (click here to view) with chopsticks & bowls! Will need to rent another complete set so I can minimize washing and packing chore when we move between houses.
9. Photography Props
Yes, I hired a photo booth for my wedding :) It'll be so fun and I am gonna need a handful of quirky props for my guests' to spice up their photos.
10. 'Gatecrash' Outfits & Props x 5
Lastly, creative gatecrash outfits for the groom's xiongdi/brothers are in high demand. Looking for something casual so that the guys can have some fun without feeling uncomfortable. Best if you could rent me the props together with the outfits :D
If you have any of the above (post wedding items!) sitting somewhere in your house, please upload on Rent Tycoons as soon as possible so that I (or other brides) can rent them! Delight new brides, earn some cash...anything better than letting these beautiful items collect dust.
P.s / Recently, I also got to meet a friend who is going to set up her own bridal gown rental service. Visit her Facebook page - Cyllene Bridal - for updates, if you are currently scouting for pretty gowns!
Love, New Bride-To-Be
