Recently got married? Here are our TOP wedding planning advice for 2022, direct from Rent Wander’ wedding experts!
It’s easy to start feeling overawed by all the questions that come after the “big question” now that it has been posed. Family, friends, and coworkers are excitedly sharing their wedding planning suggestions with you. First and foremost, remember that you are the only one who can plan your day.
Please take a moment to read some of our top recommendations for planning and organizing, even at the beginning. At Rent Wander, we’ve witnessed every type of celebration imaginable, from lavish black-tie affairs to intimate gatherings in small spaces, stunning backyard weddings, and everything in between!
So let’s get started right away.
#1 – As a couple, focus on answering the most important queries first. Meaning: Do you have a specific season in mind for your wedding? Local or abroad for the wedding? Large or intimately small? A larger outdoor area is required for safety. Your planning will move forward if you first narrow down some of these crucial choices! Following that, you can begin organizing tours of nearby venues or searching the internet for information about destination weddings. We have a wide variety of tented structures to choose from if you need to expand your outdoor space so you can celebrate in safety and style!
#2 – Create a strategy for your wedding’s “A” team: We’re talking about the vendor “all-stars” to support you in executing one of the most important moments of your life! If your budget allows, think about hiring a wedding planner to help you organize every aspect of your big day and relieve some stress. Check the venue’s specifics as you take a tour if you decide to hire “day of” coordinators who can assist with details during the day.
You should also consider hiring a caterer, a cake or dessert vendor, a photographer, a florist, and a rental company. We sincerely hope you’ll think about meeting with us when it comes to your rentals! Visit our sizable showroom in person to see our constantly growing inventory of rentals. You can browse our website catalog whenever you want.

#3 – Be specific with your theme! Meaning: styles, colors, outdoor versus indoor settings, rustic versus formal, cocktail attire, etc. You can look for ideas online, on wedding planning apps, and in magazines once you start picturing how you want your big day to “look”!
When you visit our showroom, one of our design consultants will assist you in choosing the rentals that will best suit your theme, location, and day-of requirements. We even provide mock tables for setup rentals so you can make a more informed decision. Imagine being able to see your tables before the big event! You can bring mock-up menus, floral arrangements, and/or your wedding planners to see how everything comes together! It’s very beneficial for organizing the details!
#4 – Plan the activities for the day: speeches, dances, ceremony music, and the music playlist for the night’s dancing. Having a solid understanding of the speaker lineup and the event’s timeline.
#5 – Don’t forget to personalize every aspect of the day! Don’t be afraid to change things up or include unique elements that mean something special to your family and you as a couple. Let your unique styles shine through in the ceremony and photography poses, bridesmaid dresses, and design elements!
#6 – This one is crucial! Remember that today is a special occasion for you and your partner. Planning, designing, and using the vendors who best suit you is totally acceptable! Throughout the planning process, many suggestions and pieces of advice will be given; however, once the big day comes, take some time to stop and take it all in. It passes quickly!
