Rustique Country Rentals
Tell us a little about your company? After planning my own wedding in 2013, I realized how essential wedding décor rentals could be, especially for DIY brides and grooms who are on a budget. Now, I have more than 100 items available to rent, all of which are essential for decorating any wedding or special event
When did you establish your business? October of 2013
What sets you apart from your competition? I feel that I have found a niche when it comes to my selection of items. I carry many of those little things you’ll only use once, that can cost hundreds of dollars when it’s all said and done. I also have a talented eye for style and presentation to help make any event look picture perfect!
Where do you find inspiration? I find inspiration in almost anything that surrounds us. I’m able to look past what something is, and see what it could be.
What trend do you see coming for weddings this year? The rustic, vintage and antique style of décor, I believe, will forever be a trend.
Are you on social media? Yes, you can follow us on Facebook HERE.
Can you share a funny/embarrassing/touching story about one of your client? In August of 2014, I got a phone call from someone who was helping her cousin plan her wedding. She tells me this touching story about how her cousin’s fiancé was in a terrible motorcycle accident and was nearly paralyzed months before the wedding.
Thankfully, he survived, but would be in a wheel chair for weeks during recovery. They decided the wedding was still on and luckily they were able to book rentals for the following weekend. I had the chance to meet the Groom in person and I’ll never forget our conversation that day when he told me how hard he’d been practicing to walk, so that he could surprise his Bride with their first dance as Husband and Wife. It’s stories like this that remind you of what love is all about!
What’s your favorite local restaurant? Dingus MgGees
What is your favorite fun thing to do locally? It’s a toss up between picking and four-wheeling.
Do you have secret vice or indulgence? What is it? Good food, good wine and chocolate!
If you weren’t in the business that you are in now, what other business/profession would you have liked to have done? Photography
If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what element(s) would be most important to you? Taking more time to relax on the day of the wedding!
What advice would you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? If you’re planning your own wedding, get as MUCH help as possible. Things will definitely get stressful and sometimes you can take on too much for yourself. Make the time to relax, let friends and family pitch in, or hire a little help so that you can enjoy your special day!
Anything else you’d like to share with Real Weddings Magazine’s readers? Your wedding day is ALL ABOUT YOU. Don’t let the details and drama of others stress you out. Finding true love and coming together as a family is all that matters!
