With each passing year, the wedding industry continues to play a huge role in pushing the envelope in event design and execution, with rental companies leading the charge. Long gone are the days where tablecloths and centerpieces are the only boxes to check in the decor process. From lounge areas and photo vignettes to large scale installations, curated tabletops and catering displays, venues can be completely transformed with fabulous furniture, luxury linens and custom graphics. There are so many noteworthy vendors in this category we could mention that are providing couples across the country with endless inventory and impeccable customer service. Below, we’ve highlighted four outstanding companies we’ve seen changing the wedding rentals game for the better.
Formerly associated with a more vintage flair, Loot Rentals is a specialty rental company that is now one of the most notable rental companies in the south and central Texas areas. This company is known for speaking to so many different styles and event types. By categorizing their inventory into easily identifiable styled lounges and producing seasonal look books to showcase new items, couples can easily source the perfect pieces for their wedding at Loot. They’ve even curated a fun custom style quiz to help match their products to your ideal wedding “vibe”! (hello, Natural Modern). Other vibes include Nouveau Americana, Boho Bungalow and Austin Authentic to name a few, which, despite our quiz results, we feel we might just fall into any of them. We love Loot for so many reasons, and we KNOW you’ll love working with their incredible team and will find something that you just simply can’t live without incorporating into your big day.
BBJ Linen + La Tavola Fine Linens
If you’re looking to dress your tables, chairs and place settings with linens fit for royalty, look no further. Hailing from Niles, Illinois and the vineyards of Napa Valley, California respectively, these two boutique linen rental providers are experts at creating unique linen styles, mirroring the finest materials, colors and textures from the design and fashion worlds. Once two separate powerhouses in the special event world, BBJ Linen recently acquired La Tavola earlier this year, further elevating their monopoly on the luxury linen niche. Collectively, their inventory includes thousands of different types of fabrics that range from formal to rustic, neutral to vibrant, prints to solids, classic to whimsical; catered to match any theme or color scheme imaginable and adding sophistication and glam to anything they touch. With showrooms strategically placed across the United States, orders can be placed nationwide. Whether it’s a private engagement, a high-end gala for thousands or a styled editorial photoshoot, BBJ Linen + La Tavola is shaping the luxury linen game making it easy to create event experiences with artfully designed and curated linen collections making celebrations worthy of your story.
