Brides want elegant look in party rentals Brides are going for an elegant look this year when choosing party rentals for the reception, according to Teresa Saugstad, manager of Uptown Wedding and Event Rental, 2318 Third St., Sioux City. “For colors, brides are choosing either purples and silver or nautical themes. Some brides are choosing bright colored daisies with matching beads,” she said. Couples can add more color to their reception with their tables and chairs. They can dress their chairs with covers and sashes, and layer their linens to bring color back in. Disposables are available in a rainbow of colors to coordinate with your wedding choices. Angie Jenkins, assistant manager of Uptown Wedding and Event Rental, said elegant outdoor weddings seem to be on the increase. Uptown Wedding and Event Rental offers tents that can go on concrete or grass. The tents are available as framed or rope and pole with sizes ranging from 10’ x 10’ to 40’ x 120’. They’re able to accommodate a simple cake table all the way to 800 guests. Arches are a popular accessory to add style and decoration to weddings. Couples are making their weddings more festive and accommodating for their guests by adding bounce houses for children, photo booths, sweet and salty bars, ice cream machines, coffee makers and popcorn machines. The photo booth allows guests to have their picture taken using a variety of props that are included and receive a memorable keepsake in black and white or color with the name of the couple and the date of the wedding. Another trend they’re seeing at Uptown Wedding and Event Rental is couples are making their own food for their wedding to save money and are choosing to rent chafers to keep their food warm during their event. Also, for outdoor weddings, they have a towable covered 5’ gas grill to cook a variety of meats including chicken, steaks, etc. If you are planning a wedding, visit with the friendly staff at Uptown about the latest trends and ideas for weddings. They allow brides to pick up their items early, and the rentals are always clean and ready to go. For more information, call 712224-2318.
