Garden weddings are popular themes, especially during the warmer months of the year. As we sit and dream with couples, we hear their love for the romantic feel this theme offers. Over the years, we’ve had the privilege of seeing garden weddings come together in a myriad of ways, and we have fallen head over heels for the whimsical palettes and charming event design. Keep reading to get inspired by our take on the modern garden wedding, featuring sleek and sophisticated rentals that make for an incredibly chic celebration!
Sleek and Chic Tables
This modern take on garden weddings can be achieved by bringing in bright rentals featuring geometric shapes that contrast dramatically with the freeform nature of, well, nature. Outfit your tables in colorful linens that will POP against a lush garden setting. For balance, feature our Harlin Dining Chairs or Cross-Back Chairs, made of natural wood. If you prefer an equally romantic but vintage-inspired look, consider our Antique White Bentwood Chairs.
Dreamy Velvet Details
Masculine elements, such as monochromatic color schemes contrast beautifully against soft florals and greenery. All white or all black furniture against a dreamy, floral aesthetic is both masculine and modern! Although, we’re still a fan of lighter palettes that complement whimsical florals. You can achieve a luxe but chic look by featuring textured details, namely in the form of velvet linens! Some of our current favorite colors include bold blue hues and romantic pinks and purples!
Elegant Social Areas
When hosting an event outdoors you tend to have more area to fill – in which case there is no reason not to have a cocktail lounge! Something simple yet elegant and cozy where guests can enjoy a drink and socialize. Take a look at our curated lounge packages, or mix and match our pieces to make your own. Our Bennett Leather Sofa and Adeline Dining Chairs are a fine pair, especially when complemented by a set of Chocolate Poufs and stylish accent tables. Meanwhile a rug will help frame the space!
We adore taking lovely decor pieces and transforming them by creating interactive designs that deliver jaw drops from the guests and serve a purpose. In this case, our Boxwood Wall shows up to look gorgeous, with bright ice pops that also serve as a stylish backdrop for a photo-op. Alternatively, you might dish up some champagne to greet guests at the door!

If there is one trend that we hope will stick around for years to come, it’s the love for all things velvet! Warm and sophisticated, this luxurious fabric has made its way into event design. Not only is velvet incredibly elegant, but it’s also versatile. Combine velvet with more rustic elements, such as farm tables and Cross-back Chairs for a warm and approachable vibe. Or, combine it with elements a bit more on the fancy side, think elegant flatware and gold-rimmed glassware, for a breathtaking tablescape. Get inspired when you check out our trendy velvet party rentals, ranging from couches to chairs and linens.
All Out Velvet
If you’re obsessed with velvet and want to go all-in for your next party, then you’ll want to check out our selection of velvet lounge furniture. Starting with our sofas! The the Saylor Velvet Sofa and Henley Gray Tufted Sofa are elegant pieces perfect for a more luxe event design. They look gorgeous when complemented with a modern side table or ottoman. Such as the Cheval Gold Mirror Side Table or Midas Gold Bench. And of course, one of our stunning vintage rugs!
If you need additional seating, then add in a mix of chairs and ottomans. Both our Gloria Velvet Armchairs and Saylor Navy Velvet Chairs are both rich in color and style. Whereas for more minimal seating, you might feature our Grey Tufted OttomanI. If you prefer a unique seating option, check out our chic Farah Teal Velvet and Rory Navy Velvet, perfect for special occasions.
Velvet in Moderation
Are you a fan of “velvet in moderation”? There are SO many velvet linens to choose from that will take your tablescape to the next level. Pick one color and go modern with a monochromatic look, or pick several colors and go for a boho layered look! Neutrals are always a classic, such as Driftwood and Fern. Or go bold with Ocean Blue or Spice.

Some flooring is limited to certain areas of your event space, like dance floors. They act as a focal point within an event space, in addition to being a designated area for entertainment. We offer a selection of dance floors, for a variety of different event types and themes. Although our classic White and Black dance floor is popular, our Plank Wood dance floor will lend a modern and timeless look to your event.

Real Nashville Weddings
We recently had the honor of being part of Hailey and Daniel’s Nashville wedding day at Sycamore Farms. Classy, elegant, and full of warmth – this day was bursting with elements that we are thrilled to share with you. From the lush views of the venue, down to the live band… it was utterly fabulous.
Let’s begin with the gowns. The bride wore a sophisticated white bridal gown with intricate details and a plunging neckline. Her bridesmaids looked elegant and beautiful with black bridesmaids dresses. We always adore a good black and white wedding style.
The couple’s vision for an elegant and classy day was brought to life by whites, golds, and accenting greenery. Hailey and Daniel exchanged vows outdoors under Sycamore Farms’ rustic pergola with 360-degree views, draped with white linens and trailing greenery. Guests watched the nuptials take place, seated in white chairs. Everyone dined and celebrated indoors, with tables dressed in elegant White Satin Linens, White Round China, and chic gold Austin Flatware.
The classiness of this perfect wedding day was leveled up by a live band. We brought in our White Harpeth Staging that fit the “elegant” bill perfectly. Clients adore this staging because of its versatility. We love using this white staging for live bands…it would also be a fabulous piece for a grand head table.
Lovely photography provided by Cannon Weddings. Thank you, Hailey and Daniel, for the honor of being part of your incredible wedding!
If you’re drooling like us over this elegant day, send us a message at email@example.com! We’d love to chat about your upcoming wedding.

Wedding Style: Modern Chic
Modern Chic is a darling design that features sleek lines combined with bright colors and lots of texture. Neutral Grayson Farm Tables set the scene and a dressed to the nines with Gold Austin Flatware, Medallion Gold Chargers, and Black & White Triangle Plates. We love the acrylic Ghost Chairs on one side, and the Midas Gold Velour Bench on the other for a unique take on seated dinners.
Looking to add some vintage flair to a modern and chic event? Out Gatsby Champagne Coupes look perfect in any setting and bring the old-world glamour to any occasion.
Wedding Style: Garden Romantic
A sweetly romantic garden party is a wonderful and heartfelt way to exchange vows, with a soft color palette and plenty of vintage touches. Distressed Farm Tables in whitewash with natural wood Cross Back Chairs or our Harlin Dining Chairs welcome guests into a secret garden, where dreamy rentals set the scene. Tables are adorned with ornate details like our Hob Knob Glassware and Abby Fine Silver Flatware next to satin dinner napkins, or placed perfectly among Chiffon Table Runners. Lounge areas aren’t left out, as our Tessa Tufted Linen Beige Loveseat with wooden legs adds natural subtle romance to any area.

Wedding Style: Textured Boho
Couples with a genuine love of nature and vibrant colors fall perfectly in love with this Textured Boho style – a gorgeous mix of organic elements topped with vintage & metallic details. Wood Chargers, Artisan China, unique Como Flatware, and gold flourishes stun in any setting – not to mention, they are accented perfectly regardless of your chosen color palette. Painted vintage furniture is perfectly Bohemian with bright and vibrant colors – the vividly colored Charlotte Chair and vintage Basil Arm Chair are just two selections from our vast inventory of delightful vintage chairs. Natural texture continues from dinner to dessert as a delicious cake is even more beautiful served atop Barnwood Square Cake Plateaus. Free spirits, happy hearts, and a bohemian design that never disappoints.

Fall is drifting in, and as the seasons begin to change, so do wedding trends. Bold and vibrant colors can be found everywhere in nature–from the burgundy mums sitting on your doorstep, to the bright orange pumpkins waiting to be carved into jack-o-lanterns, to the yellow leaves falling to the ground. Who are we to argue with mother nature? The vivid and rich color palette of the great outdoors moves fall wedding trends toward more jewel-toned hues.
So grab that pumpkin spice latte, light a candle, and peruse these gorgeous, in-stock jewel-toned rentals.
Our Saylor Navy Sofa always makes a striking statement. We’ve used it at many weddings and events, and it begged to be included in this lineup. The piece’s deep and powerful hue of blue brings in warmth and vivacity. Our Tabby Tufted Gray Linen Loveseat and Gold Chiavari Chairs are alluring accent pieces that round out the fall color theme.
We love playing with linens- layering them, draping them, and allowing them to pop in unexpected places. When it comes to a fall, jewel-toned wedding theme, linens are a trusty side-kick. They accentuate, build up, and reinforce the vibrant color palette. The possibilities are endless. Our Burgundy Poly Linen, Gold Poly Linen, Magnolia Green Velvet Linen, and Raspberry Poly Linen are our top picks for pushing this jewel-toned vision to life.
Warm, rich, vivacious colors set in gold are the things of fairy tales (and sought-after gifts). Rubies, emeralds, sapphires- they all have several things in common. One of which being they are set in gold. Setting your jewel-toned wedding in gold is simple with our in-stock rentals. Our Austin Flatware, Gold Accent China, and Gold Decor Accessories do just the trick.
Are you catching these fall feels? We’d love to help you create the bold and vivacious wedding you’re dreaming of. Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Monochromatic event design takes one color and weaves it throughout the event rentals and decor. We’ve all heard the phrase “less is more” and that’s definitely true here. If you’re looking to create a lot of drama and make a memorable statement, choosing one color and layering in different textures and materials will go a long way. It’ll be bold no matter what, but the mood varies depending on the color.
This look can be achieved by keeping furniture, linens, lighting, and florals (and pretty much anything and everything in between) in the same color palette. Also, there’s no need to stress about making sure everything matches just right. For monochromatic design, it’s more about pulling together varying hues, tones, and textures in the same color family. We’ve used our in-stock rentals to showcase how to pull together this look.
A black monochromatic design creates a sophisticated feel. Our Black Velvet Sofa paired with our Black and Silver Rug build out the perfect lounge area. For dining, our Carrera Marble Dinner Plate and Black Dupioni Linens join forces to give off an ultra-sophisticated and seamless look. Finally, we used our Acrylic Ghost Armless Chairs to compliment the black monochromatic design and carry the sophistication even further. (Our Acrylic Chairs are a nice companion to pretty much any monochromatic event design.)
An all-white design is a dreamy and glamorous option for weddings and other events. It gives off an ethereal, magical feel. There are so many ways to go about a white monochromatic design. For this look, we pulled together our Santorini Off-White Sofa and Loveseat and Cowhide Rug for a comfortable lounge area. For the dining area, we brought in mismatched Vintage Chairs, Athena China, and Cybil Glassware.
A blue monochromatic theme is both bold and classy. The Saylor Sofa and Loveseat set the scene for this look. To accent the blue monochromatic theme, we pulled in our Navy Rug and Meridian Blue Tumblers.
We’d love to create a show-stopping look for your wedding or corporate event. If you’re feeling inspired by these designs, send us a message at email@example.com.

With natural light pouring into the wedding venue from all angles, 14Tenn in Nashville, Tennessee is a sought-after event space for holding weddings and events of all shapes and sizes. As one of the venue’s exclusive vendors, we adore designing and dressing this space with our unique wedding and party rentals. The gorgeous, well-lit event venue becomes something new each and every time we get the opportunity to create events there. Crisp white walls, warm wood floors, and obscenely large windows create the perfect canvas.
For a recent style shoot with Styled Shoots Across America, we had the opportunity to create a luxe and inviting wedding look at this Middle Tennessee wedding venue. Our Saylor Navy Velvet Sofa and Chairs brought a welcome pop of color to the serene and modern space. We added our Navy Rug for warmth and comfort (guests always love an inviting space to sit and chat). When working with white walls and wood floors, we jump at the chance to bring in gold accents. The color combination always creates a swoon-worthy – almost ethereal – look that brides and grooms look for on their wedding day. We brought in our Gold Chiavari Chairs to evoke that magical, blissful feeling that all wedding days should have!
For the wedding reception portion of the design, we combined rustic elements with rich, warm colors. Our Fruitwood Farm Table and mismatched white vintage chairs were both inviting and rustic. To up the elegance a bit, we added Magnolia Green Velvet Linens, Hob Nob Glassware, and Gold Accent China.

Outdoor wedding ceremonies in Nashville, TN come in all shapes and sizes. Couples may opt for an open-air feel for a variety of reasons – one being the sheer beauty and novelty of exchanging vows with Mother Earth as a front-row guest. Many brides and grooms have envisioned an outdoor wedding ceremony for as long as they can remember. We adore being part of wedding celebrations outdoors, and get giddy with excitement when we see it all come together!
An outdoor wedding ceremony does not always mean the wedding is taking place on some form of a lawn. You could use a rooftop or a venue that offers concrete area. If a couple is looking to take it to the next level, Dura-Trac Flooring is the perfect option in terms of creating flooring outdoors. Otherwise, with nature as the backdrop, the sky is certainly the limit in terms of what kind of look one can achieve for an open-air wedding ceremony. Boho, elegant, rustic, intimate, grand – we’ve seen it all. In order to achieve the look you desire, all that is needed is creativity, a plan, and the perfect outdoor wedding ceremony rentals.
Boho Outdoor Weddings
For a boho-themed outdoor wedding ceremony, we love using rentals such as our Rustic Bench for seating. For texture, Cowhide Rugs draped over benches and over the ground are used. This adds warmth, color, and fun! Our Metal Ceremony Ring would fit perfectly here as well.

Traditional Outdoor Weddings
For a more traditional outdoor wedding ceremony, Folding Chairs in black, natural wood, or white and our Walnut Ceremony Doors create a streamlined, classic look. The combination of natural wood, green grass, and a blue sky come together for a memorable and gorgeous day!

Pastels are a growing trend in event design this year. If you watched the Oscars, you know it (we are still swooning over Maya Rudolph’s glorious pink gown – among other amazing looks). Pastels were everywhere. Bonus: This trend incorporates itself beautifully in weddings and events. You can make this color scheme work with whichever various themes you’re going for. Classic? Of course. How about “garden charm”, or Southern, or “rustic glam”… yep, you can do that, too! Whimsical, romantic, and even glamorous, pastels will lend an enchanted feel to pretty much any event or wedding.
Often, when people think of pastel color schemes, they think “sweet, traditional, and girly.” That’s definitely not the case anymore! This pastel color scheme can most definitely be luxe and modern. Imagine monochromatic shades of pastel blue – that look is both sleek, modern, and incredibly fresh.
When creating a fresh look with these colors, you can bring in pastel linens, dishes, furniture, or florals. You could also weave pastel colors through your invitations, food (think French macaroons), or wedding party gowns and accessories. If you’re wanting to create a look with pastels, Southern Events Party Rental Company has everything you need – from linens to dishes to coffee tables!
Love pastels and want help incorporating this fresh palette into your next event? Send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
