When you hire wedding decorations – you are getting beautifully made and creative insta-worthy props. There are gorgeous decoration items that will make your wedding shine and be especially memorable. Are you a boho beauty with a passion for pampas? Maybe you’re a festival fan with plans for a pop up glitter van? Perhaps you’re a country girl who loves the outdoors and everyhing rustic.  And that means a lot more than hay bales and bunting. Hire in a few special props from someone like Nicky who has a huge range of styles that will guarantee you’ll get the insta-worthy wow factor!

Hiring wedding decorations is more sustainable.

By hiring, instead of buying, you’ll be reducing wedding waste (what were you planning to do with it all afterwards) (just asking . . .) – so big ticks for making sustainable choices.  As well, you can spend your precious time hanging out with your bestie instead of scouring the planet for project pieces. Of course, you could possibly sell anything that you have made or bought (and that’s not bad).  Or reduce waste and hire them in instead! You’re getting the idea. . . !

Nicola’s favourite wedding decoration ‘to hire’ item.

You can say it in neon and make a statement with light-up signs.  Use with a copper arch for a modern look.  And if you want something more rustic, go with a wooden arch or pallet backdrop to add warmth and texture to your theme.  Or perhaps go super slick and simply hang your sign on a plain wall at your venue.

The most popular wedding decoration hire item that couples choose. . .

A wooden pallet backdrop (quite bulky so tricky to make and store at home).  This was a labour of love for Nicola to make.  It can be used as a ceremony backdrop, behind the dessert / cake or bar area; maybe as a room divider or photobooth backdrop. It would be quite a mission to make one yourselves . . .just saying!

What wedding decorations could you hire for a woodland wedding?

For Higher Holcombe, it’s got to be the birch arch.  This looks so beautiful when floralled up by a talented florist. It can be used in any outside ceremony area and lookes fab when teamed with wooden stumps, lanterns and candles. Woodland areas look lovely just as they are.  But for added pizzazz, hang paper lanterns and maybe a few fairy lights.

Any wedding decoration ideas to make a bar area fun and funky?

I just love our BAR circus lights – 50cm tall – place them on or behind the bar on a shelf. Offering drinks in large glass ‘help yourself’ dispensers are also fab.  Fill them with signature cocktails, Pimms, ready made G&T or even flavoured water. Team with our glass milk bottles in a vintage wooden crate and maybe a few jam jars filled with daisies. Simple done and simply beautiful!
