want to cut corners or settle for a run-of-the-mill, impersonal event.
With the help of the American Rental Association (ARA) and your local
rental store, you can be sure your wedding day will be one that will be
remembered by all.
Rental opens the doors to options you may have never even considered
due to time or budget constraints. A romantic outdoor wedding is
possible any time of the year with large tents and elegant
canopies, equipped with heating or cooling equipment. Make a statement
by skipping the traditional tiered cake and going with something more
unique, like an impressive chocolate fountain with brownie or
cheesecake bites or an ice cream cart complete with all the fixings.
You can even create dramatic scenery on the walls and ceiling of your
venue with a variety of accent lighting options.

- make one stop at your local
rental store and get everything you need. ARA members, which

To make planning your big day even easier, some ARA member rental
businesses offer Certified Event Rental Professionals (CERPs). And most
offer on-site support, relieving much of the stress associated with
planning a wedding. These professionals are ready and willing to share
their knowledge and experience with you, from pre-wedding set-up all
the way through the day of the event.
Deadlines, budgets, decor - these are all aspects of a wedding that
need to be managed and sometimes are better left to the professionals.
CERPs know what needs to be organized right away, and what can wait
until later. They will think of that one detail that never would have
crossed your mind and keep your budget in check.
Enlisting the help of a CERP from your local rental store will
not only ease the stress and tension of planning an entire wedding, but
it will also ensure that the wedding you always envisioned is the one
you will remember for years to come. From the latest trends and themes,
to innovative budget saving strategies, CERPs know the ins and outs of
planning a wedding.
Don't let the burden of planning your wedding overwhelm you as you
approach one of the most memorable days of your life. Make it an
enjoyable experience with the help of ARA and your local rental store.
