You aren't getting married because your relationship is a boring, neutral affair; you're getting married because you enjoy each other's company and want to spend the rest of your lives having adventures together. And whether those adventures entail the exciting journey of parenthood or exotic vacations, the one thing that you never want to feel when you're with your spouse is "bored." So it's kind of surprising that despite the riotous changes our society has undergone since codifying the white wedding as "traditional," couples are still adhering to the standard white linens and white flowers in their wedding rental selections. There's nothing wrong with white, of course-it's absolutely gorgeous when done right-but if you really want to make an impression on your guests, you can always inject your wedding with a stunning dose of color.
Choose Your Colors
Depending on your personality and specific tastes, you probably have a certain color scheme in mind already. If you don't, you should remember that choosing a color scheme is one of the most important aspects of wedding planning and it impacts your selection of wedding rental products. It seems simple enough, but if you want to limit or eliminate white, you might need to do a little extra work coordinating your wedding, or hire professionals to do it for you! If you want to go all out, you can even choose a rainbow theme, though you'll probably want help coordinating your wedding table cloths with everything that go along with it. You'll be able to find everything in a variety of colors, including flowers, candles, and linen. Rent or buy items only after making the final decision on what your wedding will include.
Find your Perfect Flowers
Thanks to the efforts of the floral industry, you should be able to find nearly any flower in every color of the rainbow-including colors that don't exist in nature! Floral shops can usually dye plants to match your particular color scheme, but you should make sure they are able to do this as soon as you can. Because floral shops can import flowers from both sides of the equator, it is unlikely that you'll be able to request flowers that are not currently in stock, but you should still check as soon as you have a set date and venue.
Locate your Wedding Linen
An absolutely essential rental item is quality linen. Wedding table linen has advanced quite a bit beyond basic white; you can find everything from bright orange to delicate lavender to riotous prints in the modern linen industry. In order to find the best selection of linen for your wedding, find a wedding linen rental service that specializes in wedding linens and other tabletop accessories. You can usually request swatches, order wedding table cloths online, and examine linen in-store before deciding on the color and texture of your linen. Rent to save money, as you probably won't be able to use 250 napkins any time in the conceivable future.
