"Lounge furniture, lounge furniture,
lounge furniture," she says emphatically. "Informal groupings of chairs
and loveseats make a space look
special." Trotter also recommends
interesting light ϐixtures and other
ceiling installations to create a unique
setting that doesn't cost a fortune.
Terry Turner, CERP, owner of All
Occasions Party Rentals of Knoxville,
Tenn., has noticed the speed of
trends picking up and credits
social media. "Brides used to carry
around the Martha Stewart wedding
book, but now everything for their
dream wedding is on Pinterest, on
their phone and maybe happened
yesterday. So it can be a headache to
try and keep inventory current."

To save money, Turner recommends
focusing on elements that guests will be
most likely to remember, such as a cool bar
area with great shelving and lighting, and
saving on things like linens and seating.
Tent shares are another option and
can be a win-win, weather permitting.
When All Occasions realizes two clients
have weddings at the same place on
back-to-back weeks, they bring it to
both parties' attention and let them
decide if they want to split it, offering
a discount to reϐlect the labor savings.
Turner also recommends saving on
the venue. "Some of these places cost
$4,000 to $6,000. Why not ϐind a ϐield
or a property somebody in your family
owns and have it there? We can create
a venue anywhere with a tent."

A Stillwater Tent from Fred's Tents
& Canopies needs little more than
a beautiful setting for a wow factor.
