From Linens to Cake Stands: 8 Must-Have Decor Rentals for Your Vancouver Wedding

It’s spring in Vancouver, and wedding season is just around the corner! Wherever wedding decorators look, we are reminded of the joy and anticipation that this time of year holds for engaged couples and their loved ones. With tulips and peonies popping up on every street corner and temperatures rising into dress weather, weddings are top of mind! 

We are eager to share some of our favourite trends in wedding decor and Vancouver event rentals. As one of the wedding decor companies in the region, we enjoy the process of working with couples to optimize their wedding decorations. So whether your style is more modern and chic, vintage, or rustic, our team has ideas and products that will elevate the mood and make your celebration an unforgettable one. 

Wedding Arch Rentals

If there is one must-have piece of advice around wedding decor rentals in Vancouver that we recommend to couples for their big day, it is a wedding arch rental. We carry the timeless wooden rectangular arch, the ever so famous gold circle arch, and a modern geo piece that is diamond shaped. Getting married at one of Vancouver’s gorgeous gardens? How about at an art gallery or museum? Any of these iconic pieces will help transform the space. Dress wedding arch rentals with drape rentals Vancouver or attach a stunning floral focal piece - they look gorgeous in wedding photos! 

Candle Rentals for Weddings Near Me

Dreamy and romantic, the flicker of candlelight is unmatched at evening wedding receptions. There’s a cozy intimacy that this kind of lighting offers. Not to mention, it’s very flattering in photos. 

Here at Elle Weddings, we have a variety of candelabras, votives, and other wedding candle holders. We especially can’t get enough of the modern elegance that gold votives and gold lanterns offer.

Dessert Displays

Growing in popularity over the past decade, dessert displays remain on-trend and are here to stay. They’re practical (you can keep gluten-free desserts separate from dairy-free desserts and label them for guest selection); they allow for guests to get up and move toward the stations; and you can integrate your iconic wedding cake in the display. 

Our favorite dessert stations range from donut displays to creative cupcake holders. We love how they entice guests to reach for them, and the height of these items adds interest and appeal to the design. You’re investing in your wedding desserts - why not kick it up a notch and make the station as pretty as possible with a cake stand or risers to add dimension to the display? Our cake tier stand rental collection includes wooden cake stands, whimsical cake stands, princess cake stands, wooden risers, and more. View the collection here. 

Table Linen, Fabrics and Drape Rentals Vancouver

Linens and fabrics  are one of the best-kept secrets of wedding planners and wedding decor rental companies alike. They are versatile and have the ability to transform any space to fit your vision. If you’re looking to add a little more to spruce up your round arch, add some draping and allow the breeze to let it drift gently in the background. If you want to add some texture and colour to your tables, lay a length of mauve cheesecloth down your rectangular or round guest tables and work all the other decor around it, such as candles, table numbers, and flowers.

Does your venue take advantage of the waterfront or mountain views? To frame tall, expansive windows, consider wedding drapery rental and backdrops. Sashes or ribbons are also great little touches when tied to the chairs that hang and line your ceremony’s aisle Vancouver, adding elegance and pops of colour.

Photo Backdrops

There are many options for photo backdrops these days and we like to keep it simple with our crowd favourites! Along with flower walls, we have a variety of wedding wall decor options that couples can choose from to use as a photo booth station, from wedding arches for rent to pipe and drape decor. While some couples love the addition props that show off their personalities, others create more simple selfie stations without them. Don’t forget to tell your guests your wedding hashtag so you can enjoy these images after your big day! 

Bonus tip - consider searching “wedding decorator near me” or “party rentals Vancouver” to snag one of these for your bachelorette party or bridal shower! 

Bud Vases

Like other decor rental Vancouver professionals, we love adding personal touches and details to every wedding design regardless of shape or size. Those small items, whether they’re bud vases down the tables, in the restrooms, or placing a few votive candles on a coffee table in the corner, make a difference and people notice them!

Smaller pieces of vintage wedding rentals can also be integrated into tablescapes or centerpiece designs. Whether they’re grouped, such as in a trio of bud vases on the bar table or dessert display, or spread down the length of a long dining table, their economic daintiness adds sweetness and the sense that you haven’t overlooked any details. 

Signs and Easels

We have a large collection of easels to display all signs including welcome signs, seating chart, portraits, or directional signs. Easels are often and easily forgotten but they make a difference in showing off your signs. Don’t forget to select out easels to display them when selecting your wedding rentals Vancouver

Things you might include on signage:  

Floral Stands and Columns

Perfect for use as floral stands for the ceremony, a way to pave an entrance way,  as standalone cake stands, or risers for decor. Using stands and columns in your wedding decor Vancouver is a great alternative to wedding arches, centerpieces, or dessert display tables. Get creative with our acrylic columns - we’ve seen these as aisle markers to welcome guests as they take their seat for the ceremony, and they can be moved to your reception to fill empty spaces or place beside the cake table. We love multi-use items like these - they add a lot of bang for the buck! 


As you can probably tell, we could go on and on about all of the creative ways to achieve the wedding of your dreams through decor rental options. We pride ourselves on staying abreast of current trends and working with each and every client to hear your vision and then make it happen. Our team at Elle Weddings thinks outside the box to offer solutions to design challenges. Nothing makes us happier than helping you to celebrate your love, surrounded by beauty and joy.



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!
