Waterford Wednesday: Blush Sequins Linen

2019 is right around the corner and you may be thinking, “Where did the year go?!”

If you’re like us and still dumbfounded how fast Fall flew by, make sure you take some time to start thinking about next year.  What events do you have planned or wish to host?  What items can you check off your list, now, before the new year begins?

LINENS!  If you know your venue and color scheme, linens are the next item to complete on your “check-list”.  One of our favs that compliments so many floral patterns is our Blush Sequins.

Uniquely, lighting plays a huge part in highlighting this sequin showstopper.  As you can see below, depending on how you utilize your lights for your event, this linen can look more blush or more champagne.

This sweetheart table turns heads!  The simple elegance of the linen complimented by the natural and earthy tones surrounded it adds a special touch to the lovely wedded couple’s table.

Waterford Wednesday – Why We’re Thankful

Since Waterford Event Rentals (WER) opened its doors in 2010, the events world has forever been redefined and changed.  From Day 1, WER has gone the extra mile to ensure each client receives the most excellent and pristine care before, during, and after their event.  With that in mind, you might be wondering how we do it.  How do we seamlessly and flawlessly make sure your event runs smoothly and ultimately brings your vision to life?  It starts with a great team and leader!  This week we want to take some time to focus on several key players from our team who make each event a success and, in addition, share how WER has radically changed their lives:

Meet Brigitte – Events/Admin Coordinator

“I have grown so much as a person and employee since I first started with Waterford Event Rentals back in May of 2016.  During my senior year of college, I began looking for an internship in the special events industry and came across WER on social media.  Soon after hearing about this company, I realized what a strong and influential leader they are in the community.  On top of that, they even offered summer internships!  Upon completing my internship, I started working as an administrative coordinator with WER, where I am further developing my knowledge and understanding of the events world.

Essentially, WER changed my life!  The lessons learned and skills gained, since joining the team back in 2016, have increased my overall talents and professional capabilities.  Why, you might ask?  Because WER taught me to focus on our clients.  We want each customer to feel as if they are family and to ultimately have the easiest and most relaxing experience from start to finish.  Each team member sees your event as their event, ensuring high quality and ultimate satisfaction.”

Meet Megan – Events Staff

“With celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow, I look back and reminisce on all that I am grateful for in my life, with one of those being Waterford Event Rentals.  For as long as I can remember, I have had a strong passion for planning and decorating.  When I discovered WER two years ago, I knew I wanted to be a part of this amazing company.  Since then, my knowledge and capabilities have grown drastically, vastly learning more about the wedding and events industry than I ever thought possible.  WER’s attention to detail and emphasis to always go the extra mile constantly remind me of the standard of excellence each of our team members hold themselves to.  This proves to be a company where not only do I have great co-workers, but I have also gained additional family!”

Meet Grace – Events Staff

“I started at WER as a summer intern earlier this year and have since gained so many more friends.  Because Alyse, Rebecca, and Brigitte took the time to invest in me from the beginning, I quickly caught on to the “Waterford Way” of ensuring the perfection and precision in every client’s event.  Like Brigitte, I was also offered a permanent position upon completion of my 400+ internship hours with WER, where I am learning even more!  Since joining the team during the summer, I have come to respect and love Waterford Event Rentals.  WER truly does care about their clients’ dreams and visions, mixing and mingling thousands of products in their inventory together to best meet their clients’ needs.  Prior to being an intern and employee, I had very little knowledge of the “behind the scenes” portion of an event; however, now, I get to see firsthand just how much work goes into making every event flawless!”

As you can see, Waterford Event Rentals changed each of these ladies’ lives, helping mold and grow them more into strong, professional, and creative event producers!  So, on behalf of the Events Staff team, we say thank you WER for investing in each of us!  Happy Thanksgiving to all!  Enjoy a festive time full of holiday cheer with friends and loved ones, while reminding yourselves what you are truly thankful for!

Waterford Wednesday: Why Rent?

Weddings are expensive!  You might have heard that rumor a time or two, but let’s be real, an average wedding can run up a tab of $30,000 easy.  Because of this daunting statistic, you might be wondering how can you cut costs.  What can I eliminate or reduce to bring the expenses down?  Well, if you’ve done some research, you might even ponder the thought of saving a few dollars by buying your linens, rather than renting them.  At first glance, this seems like a reasonable and cost effective solution.  However, when choosing to buy, you miss out on all of the added bonus that come along with coordinating with a third-party vendor like Waterford Event Rentals (WER):

1. We go the extra mile – From the moment you place your order with WER, we work to make sure your day is truly unforgettable. It starts with reviewing our inventory, ensuring we have the right amount of table cloths, runners, sashes, chair covers, and chairs to make your special day come to life.  Once prepared, we can personally deliver and set up on the day of your wedding, steaming the wrinkles out and providing extras in case a minor last-minute change is made.

No wrinkles & no set up! Talk about a win-win!

2. The clean-up is easy – No need to fret about the clean-up! We’ve got you covered.  After your event has winded down, our team can personally return the rentals to our warehouse.  Talk about a stress-free service!

We clean up the mess, just make sure to look your best!

3. Our products are of highest quality – Before even renting or distributing our products out, we guarantee that they are pristine. Reviewing the longevity, usefulness, and trends of the market prove to be key factors in determining our inventory.  You can count on us to make sure that our little touches of color and sparkle to your tables and chairs will definitely add to the atmosphere and character of your event!

So much elegance!

As you can see, the small difference in price between buying and renting your linens, chairs, and decorative features really goes a long way!  When it comes down to it, would you rather save a few dollars and have paper thin, wrinkled, and cheaply-made linens or spend the extra bucks renting from a quality, high-end event rentals company like WER?  Trust us, we are without-a-doubt a worthwhile investment in bringing your event to life!

 

Let us help make your event elegant and stress-free! We promise, renting is worth it!
