Wedding rental fun!

I’m sure you’ve probably seen the post about my DIY wedding dress. Geoff and I are getting married in 89 days (woah) and I thought it would be fun to share these last few months of wedding planning. So come back often to see the progress of putting together our wedding shindig!

This weekend we went with our wedding coordinator, Ursula of Pleasant Events, to get our rentals figured out. We went to Classic Party Rentals in Natomas and had such a great experience there! I had so much fun picking things out. They have an awesome showroom where you can play with all the different linens, plates, cups, chairs—they’ve got it all. (BTW no one pays me to say these things, I just love to share a great experience!)

Our color scheme is green, orange, and yellow with splashes of dark brown, pink and a smidge of blue. (When they say wedding colors, I say ALL of them!) Here is what we came up with:

I am soooo excited about the outcome! Aren’t those forks cool!? The green under the plate is my own fabric. I want to make simple place mats out of fun green patterned fabrics, like the ones in the photo below.

You can also see the faux version of the flowers we want for the wedding, Poppies and Ranunculus. Emily at Classic Party rentals was super helpful. Thanks! We also went to Mimi & Co who specialize in linens and chair covers. Oh my goodness do they have some fancy linens! So many colors and fabrics! If you are looking for something extra special, check them out.

This is so cute I just had to share. For lunch that day we went to Mr. Pickles and look at how they labeled our sandwiches! Adorable!
