Why Hire Instead of Buy Your Wedding Décor?

Purchasing everything as a sentimental reminder of the most amazing day of your lives might be tempting – after all, it’s an investment, right? – but will you really use it later? From the chairs to the wishing well, plinths, backdrops and signage, sometimes it’s actually a less expensive, better value, less stressful option to rent your wedding decorations.

One of the main reasons why it’s a better idea to hire than buy your wedding decorations is because you don’t need (or want) to own 20 table centrepieces. So, it just makes sense to hire your props, decorations and furniture. Need more convincing? Here’s four other reasons why hiring your wedding décor is better than buying.


Planning a wedding is a tricky process. You’ll have to take the time to source all your products, and they’ll most likely be from different suppliers.

Now you need to get it delivered to your venue. Or, you’ll have to hire a decent-sized truck to pick them up yourself. In the worst-case scenario, they could get damaged on the commute. When you hire your items, they will arrive spotless and in mint condition. And, once the vows have been said and glasses of bubbly clinked, you won’t need to add “clean all decorations and props” to your list of post-wedding errands.


It’s all well and good to buy 10 plinths and a wooden arbour to decorate your ceremony entrance, but where will you store them afterwards? They’re quality items so it would be wasteful to throw them away. Hiring eliminates the need to stockpile all the decorations and props that you might love but will never use again. To return, you simply pack it all up and organise a time that suits you to get your items picked up.


When you hire your decorations from Ivory Heart, you’ll have access to the best quality and most luxe prop stock in Melbourne – all in the one place. Need sophisticated signage, plinths, backdrops and even artificial floral table runners in this season’s colours? When you hire, all that will be available at your fingertips. Best of all, our inventory pool is arranged by the same colour palette, so you can create a cohesive theme where all your main elements will match: too easy!


Those brand new Tiffany chairs don’t come cheap – and that’s only after you’ve sourced enough for all your guests. And, they’re only really yours when you’ve paid for the items in their entirety – so you’ll need to buy them outright. This means your budget may blow out of control before you’ve even gotten to the other essentials. By hiring your chairs, you’ll be able to have them at a quarter of their retail price. This applies to all your decorations and props.

Now, all that’s left to do is book your key pieces in advance to avoid disappointment.
