This post might sound totally, utterly obvious…but bear with me. I think theres more than just a few reasons to hire your wedding decor though, so many of my Little Lenders past would say the same I’m sure.

– It’s cheaper. (Well, duh)
Ok so generally when you hire props its about a third of the price of buying to hire. Thats generally how we price our range so that we can pass on that saving right away. Popular items like apple crates, ladders, milk churns have all seen a huge rise in pricing over the last 18 months as they’re super sought after. Don’t spend more than you need to to get the pieces you love right now.
– You don’t have tonnes of stuff to sell/shift after the wedding.
Yep, another obvious point right?! I had masses of stuff left after our wedding, we just went on honeymoon and left it all in the kitchen in a heap. Erm, not entirely what you want to return to from a tropical getaway. Let your hire company deal with the after math.

So you’re getting married in 18 months time, that’s 18 months of having to stash and find a home for wedding stuff. Ours was actually everywhere, behind the sofa, under beds, we’d filled the spare room. It drove me crazy and it can turn your home into a garage!
Unless you’re really close to your wedding venue getting everything you’ve collected to your venue can be a total mission. I’ve known couples hire vans for the whole weekend, because it’s not just getting it there it’s getting it back too. Yes you generally have to pay more to get items delivered and collected but unless you have someone who can just do loads of car loading through the day or you’re friends with a white van man it could get a bit tricky.

– Finding what you love can be a big headache.
I am all about the DIY weddings, but finding and sourcing exactly what you’re after for all the tables or for a mega display can take some doing. I’ve been running LL for over 2 years now and relying on the charity shops, boot sales and vintage stores is just not the same as it used to be, popular vintage and rustic items don’t seem to be on the shelves because they’re quickly snapped up. When you need a certain number to complete a ‘look’ it can become a real mission. Don’t forget we can help with sourcing if there is something specific you’re after…

– Being indecisive is OK.
I know that getting married means making a lot of decisions. I changed my mind ALOT. So hiring your decor means you have some flexibility, I always try to accommodate changes from my lenders because I know there can be lots of mind changing and venue restrictions or weather dependability can pop up later down the line.
We also add decor to our range frequently so as the decor trends change through your wedding planning you might spot more additions on our IG feed or FB page so your wedding can evolve with what you’re into and loving for when you say I do.
Don’t rush into buying anything just yet folks…
