5 Decor Rental Ideas to Consider for Your Vancouver Wedding

Have you ever stepped into an event and felt as if you had just stepped into another world? When we work with couples to select their wedding decor in Vancouver, that’s our goal. We want the vibe to be immediately clear to you and your guests and this is true whether we’ve worked with you to achieve a contemporary and modern-feeling event, with minimalistic, sleek accessories or if the design is more rustic, with a nature-inspired wedding arch rental

As a leading source of Vancouver event rentals, we know that it’s these rentals that often supply the “make or break” elements for events. Whether they’re seen by all the guests, such as for the wedding arch, or just contribute details that come together for that full vibe, such as selecting the right candlesticks, your rental items have the power to really bring your design home. What are some of our favorite rental items? Read on to find out! 

Wedding Arch Rentals

Our wedding decor rentals team has curated a number of different styles of arches to suit everyone’s visions.

For your wedding arch rental in Vancouver, don’t forget that you can use the arch’s structure as a foundation that can be dressed up with sweeping fabric, simple or dramatic floral arrangements, lighting, and much more. The focal point for photos will stay on you and your love, but the background will be dripping with loveliness from the florals and the fabric. Just search “wedding decorator near me,” “organza sashes rentals Vancouver,” or “backdrop rental Vancouver” for inspiration and to get the process started. 

Another bonus about using a wedding arch is more practical than just the appearance. An arch is also a visual marker for where your officiant will stand and where the photographer will be focusing, so they can plan the shots and angles that will be captured during the ceremony. Additionally, whether your chairs will be supplied by a team with party rentals in Vancouver or by the venue, having an arch is also a logical marker for the team to use to line up your ceremony chairs. 

Using Mirrors in Your Wedding Decor

Mirrors are design essentials used frequently in wedding decor rentals in Vancouver by wedding decorators. We love that they make the most beautiful welcome signs and seating charts, a stunning canvas for calligraphy artists to write on. They make smaller spaces appear larger, so are great for rooms that might otherwise feel a bit cramped. They also reflect candlelight, and so are wonderful to use on top of table linen rentals in Vancouver, together with votives and taper candles. 

Another use of mirrors is just using them as mirrors! After all, on your wedding day, you’re likely to be wearing perhaps the most luxurious outfit of your life, and with makeup and hair that’s perfected by professionals. Why not give yourself the chance to enjoy the splendour in mirrors placed throughout your venue? 

Display your amazing food

If your wedding receptions and other celebrations incorporate food, why not use that food as edible decor itself? Appetizers and desserts have been lovingly and carefully prepared, and are an investment of their own, so we invite you to explore options for event decor in Vancouver such as platters and elevated dishware like cake stands and cupcake towers.

Whether you select a more traditional cake tier stand rental item or something to hold food that is traditionally included in a wedding celebration for your multicultural wedding, there are options for displaying food that are outside of the box and might augment your reception design. We’ve seen everything from porcelain cupcake stands to geometric shelves to hold snacks. We even offer the rental of our cupcake-holding ferris wheel

Integrate Deluxe Lighting

For hundreds of years, candles have been used in weddings and celebrations of all kinds. Although these days, we have the luxury of using electricity to power everything from disco lights and LEDs to spotlights and more, we will never get tired of weddings that integrate the warm and romantic feel of candlelight. 

#1 Lanterns

Lanterns make supremely versatile elements of wedding decor. Perfect for clustering around the base of your arch, using to add interest to your aisle, or integrating in otherwise bare spaces in your reception venue, their symbolism for hope and comfort make them the ideal wedding decoration. With over 10 different varieties and styles of lanterns available for rental, we at Elle Weddings may be an ideal source in wedding decor Vancouver for lanterns. 

#2 Candelabras

There’s an inescapable romance to the flicker and liveliness, and whether you choose an array of taper candles to run down the length of each tablescape or just a cluster of some pretty votives on the bar or near your cake, guests will be drawn to the warmth and light of candles. 

For a special and eye-catching display, select from our variety of candelabras!  

Using Nature-Inspired Elements

Although trends come and go, there’s one category of decor that will always be in style - natural elements. From rustic wooden boxes holding vases of lovely florals to arranging greenery atop your table rentals in Vancouver, there are so many ways of integrating the outdoors at your wedding. 

Bud vases can hold grasses and wildflowers, as can larger vases of all shapes and sizes. No matter the season, there’s a natural element that pairs perfectly with your event, whether it’s pinecones, holly, and red berries in winter, or sunflowers in summer. You can even lift arrangements using stemmed vases and floral stands. Nature makes us feel relaxed, and even small details like a bud vase paired with a candle on an otherwise bare surface makes all the difference. 


Our passion is creating events that are designed with intentionality to reflect the wishes of the couple being honoured. For some couples, that may mean sticking to a monochromatic palette and using sleek crystal cake display dishes, and for other couples, that may mean selecting bright jewel-tones and balancing them with wooden geometric shapes for decor. Each couple is different and our inventory of event decor in Vancouver includes something for everyone.

Leslie was organized, efficient, worked with what we wanted, easy to communicate with, and so lovely to work with. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to plan our wedding! She is super knowledgeable about all of the best deals and vendors in the area and was able to create our dream vision with our budget. She took a lot of things off our plate with handling the vendors and everything on the special day making it stress free. On top of taking on all of these responsibilities, she was always so quick to respond. Leslie is the best and we will miss working with her!

Leslie helped to ensure our wedding day was amazing. She is attentive, responsive, flexible, and always smiling. Working with her was a pleasure and we'd highly recommend working with her. My husband and I were able to just enjoy the day while she took care of all the details on the day of, guiding us with a smile and always showing her caring attitude. As the day passed by me as a blur, I remember Leslie always busy working to make sure the details were perfect. Very grateful to have found her and for the work and love she put into our wedding. Thanks Leslie!
