As a wedding planner, there are so many aspects of the event I get to be involved in. I get to work on the planning side, the design elements, and almost always the actual coordination of the event. I’ll admit, however, that the design aspect of weddings in which I get to really flex my creative muscles has long been a favorite. It drives the sometimes insane number of styled shoot that I take on and over the past 6 months has led to the creation of our wedding inventory.
Pop the Champagne! Event Rentals officially became its own business this January so that all brides, whether they choose us to plan their special day or not, have access to truly affordable and beautiful items to make their wedding day dreams a possibility. I have been really taken aback by rental pricing in the past and have seen first hand the disappointment in a bride who wants something beautiful and is told it isn’t possible within her budget by another company. Through this new venture, I am able to both fill a need I see in the local community and explore all new design options and ideas for my brides.
I also firmly believe in giving back to the local community and as such am sourcing a line of new wedding arches and custom decor through CA Designs which is based in the Raleigh area. I shop local as much as possible for rental items rather than ordering online to keep my pricing as low as possible for the wonderful brides I get to work with.
While my rental company will never replace Elizabeth’s Events for me, I am excited for this new venture to take off and become both a valuable resource and creative outlet in the best way possible. Thanks for all the love and support from our creative community and we can’t wait to see what the future holds!
