Sometimes when choosing an interesting venue they don't have everything you need. For instance, tables and chairs. So you can rent anything from picnic chairs.
Consider your local when choosing your decor. See what they have; find out the pricing in advance. When renting tables and chairs for a wedding it gives you an opportunity to choose interesting things that are a little bit different. Instead of round tables, why not do rectangular or square? You can have a lot of fun with this so take this as an opportunity to go a little nuts.

You can also rent more than just tables and chairs. You can also rent cool chargers to put a red accent on your cool clean white wedding.

Sometimes, the rentals themselves aren't so expensive. But definitely be aware, there's always a delivery fee, and even more so if they have to deliver or pick up on the weekends. Ask your venue if they can deliver on Friday and get picked up on Monday, and you'll save yourself a lot. And those are some tips on wedding rentals.
