When it comes to wedding planning, it is tempting to buy everything, but sometimes it is better and more practical to rent some key elements of the wedding props and decorations. A wedding does not have to be an unsustainable expense and renting, for example, wedding centrepieces is the best way to have a beautiful wedding at a fair price.
It’s time to go through this list and choose to rent from an original table for your wedding cake to the games that your guests will never forget. Take note of the 6 most important things to rent!
Take advantage of the rental to bring a little fun to your wedding: how about a chocolate fountain for an exquisite fondue, cotton candy or popcorn machine? And if it’s a beach or outdoor wedding, rent games such as ping-pong tables, giant jengas or trampolines for adults and children. And if it’s all about fun, rent a photocall or a frame that will make the photo session unforgettable.
Tables, chairs and sofas to show off
In addition to round or long family-style tables or a mix of both, consider renting a table for the bride and groom, buffet tables, gift table, guest book table, family photo table and lounge space. For seating, in addition to your ceremony and reception, rent a group of small chairs for the children and a couple of special chairs for the bride and groom’s table.
Platforms and special environments
If your wedding is in a single sitting you need to give visibility to the band, rent a stage or a platform. And if you want to differentiate the space from the ceremony, rent a kiosk that can be located inside the venue. Another environment to include in the rental list is a bar, just make sure that the floor conditions of the venue allow for it.
Table and chair linens
From the simple tablecloth for the signing book table, fancy table linens for the cake table, gift table and chair and sofa linings or décor, the rental market offers gorgeous options worth exploring beyond the traditional. Rent materials that make a difference such as supple faux leathers, velvety fabrics or organic materials made from bamboo.
Lights and electricity are assured
Light is the essence of wedding decorations. Look into renting lights for the indoor and outdoor areas of the ceremony and reception: vintage chandeliers, chandeliers that come down from the ceilings. There are many diverse options to choose from to achieve the decorative effect you are looking for. And, especially if the wedding is outdoors, you will need a plant or an electric generator. Project the amount of power you need for your lights, catering, DJ or band, as well as microphones and speakers.
Stylish and versatile canopies and tents
A simple tent or one equipped with fancy chandeliers and drapes is the most beautiful way to bring an outdoor wedding to life. Rent tents with sophisticated canopies, with wedding fabric decorations inside, lit with elegant chandeliers and beautiful, sturdy floors that make dancing the night away a pleasure.

These pads feel *heavenly* to wear. Soft, barely noticeable but not too lightweight, and they stay in place all day!!! I love them, I can’t wait to get my next paycheck so I can order more. :) these were my first experience with the switch to reusables and I’m very impressed. If anyone else is on the edge of starting this route, GO FOR IT. Especially if you’ve ever suffered from itchiness from those plastic pad materials..this is so much better.
It's my first time buying reusable pads and I'm really happy with this pair. The print and design sold me, but the comfort and reliability have exceeded my expectations. They work for daytime and overnight use with no problems compared to disposable pads. Wish I bought these sooner. They're a total game changer for periods.
Beautiful pattern, expertly stitched, and lovely seller. Beyond happy. Very fast shipping too! Thank you so much!!! ❤️
High-quality, low maintenance reusable pads! Really nice, and they do stain but that can’t really be helped aside from doing a quick handwash before tossing it in the machine. Will definitely be purchasing more in the future!
These are the best!! They are not bulky and the fabric is so comfortable. I have tried shapes and patterns from several of the best selling shops and these are my favorite.
I like that they have metal snaps! The ones I have with plastic snaps do not last as long. I think these will hold up for a few years. Thank you!
I know right!? Ok, so cloth menstrual pads are a washable, reusable alternative to disposable pads. Pretty sweet, right?
The regular absorbency pads are good for light to moderate flows. They are 100% cotton, with a layer of terry cloth (towel material) inside for absorbency. Cotton is a moisture wicking and breathable fabric, which allows menstrual fluid to dry rapidly, keeping you comfy and dry. This also means that these cloth pads can absorb a surprising amount of fluid!
The heavy absorbency pads are perfect for moderate to heavy flows. Heavy pads are longer than regular pads. These pads are primarily cotton, with cotton flannel and terry cloth for absorbency and breathability. Additionally, they have a layer of polyurethane laminate (PUL) inside. This is a waterproof, laminated fabric that protects you from leakage. In the heavy pads, the PUL lining is in the pad core (the part that’s shaped like a peanut)!
The overnight cloth pads are great for heavy flows, and for overnight use. Overnight pads are longer than heavy pads, and flare out at each end. These pads are made of cotton flannel, cotton terry cloth, and PUL lining. In the overnights, the PUL lining extends throughout the entire base of the pad, so even the wings are leakproof!
Cloth liners are lovely for really light days, and as a backup for a tampon or menstrual cup. They are made of five layers of cotton. They are soft, barely noticeable, and peace of mind for that bit of protection.
Moody V regular absorbency pads and cloth liners are made with 100% cotton, which makes your down-there oh-so happy. Cotton is a breathable, moisture wicking fabric that creates a difficult environment for yucky bacteria like yeast to grow.
Disposable pads are mostly synthetic, which is fully not nice to your body. They’re made out of bleached wood pulp (what the?) and non-biodegradable materials.
Moody V’s heavy cloth pads and overnight cloth pads are also primarily cotton. They have a polyurethane lining inside, which keeps moisture from leaking through. This lining is non-biodegradable (I know, it sucks). But remember, you’re not just gonna throw it away, you’ll probably use it like, 100 times.
Method 1: Rinse with cold water ASAP to reduce staining. Machine wash cold, then air dry thoroughly to maintain a nice shape.
Method 2: Machine wash cold, tumble dry.*
*Method 2 gets your pad clean and ready to use again real quick, but may result in light staining and scrunching-up in the dryer. (Stains fade over time and you can stretch the pad gently with your hands to un-scrunch it.)
Some folks like to keep a container of cool water in their bathroom so they can soak their pads until they’re ready to wash them. This helps remove stains without using chemicals or potentially fabric-damaging products.
It’s recommended to avoid using fabric softener, as it makes fabric less absorbent.
Another good rule of thumb is not to use anything on your pads you wouldn’t wash your underwear with. Your pads are gonna be up close and personal with a sensitive area, so avoid harsh or irritating chemicals when washing them.
Cloth pads contain several layers of fabric, which means it might need extra time drying. Make sure they’re super dry out of the dryer or dry them in the sun to prevent mildew. Do be aware that sun-drying can result in fabric discoloration.
