Wedding table centrepieces – buy or hire?
Clearly, we’re going to be all for buying wedding table centrepieces rather than hiring, aren’t we? This is what we do after all and more importantly it’s what we’re passionate about. We understand that having a professionally styled theme is a wonderful way to reflect your personal style and turn your vision for your wedding into reality. This is why we created this concept of beautiful pre-packed, pre-styled, ready-to-go wedding table centrepieces.
Enough about us, we want to show you what has led us to believing that buying is better than hiring and therefore brought us to where we are today…
You have enough stress of putting this whole day together and since when did you receive event management training in preparation? With a million and more things to think about, why not let the task of the styling your table centrepieces go to someone who wants it – us!
Once your special day is over, you’re bound to have at least one dinner party, right? Put those centrepieces to work at creating a stand-out dinner party to impress your friends.

Brides.com said, While purchasing all your linens might be madness, buying the smallest fabric items may save you money. “Depending on how large your guest count is, buying these may be less expensive than renting them and you can use them again,” says Tombs. “They don’t take up a bunch of room, and you can get something that is truly custom and one-of-a-kind. You can keep them and use them for holidays for years to come.”
We guess to some extent it does depend on the size of your wedding, so we always advise our customers to ask themselves that exact question: how many of each item do we need? Remember though, if you don’t want to keep your decorations, there’s always eBay!
We all think we know exactly what we want our wedding to look like (thank you Pinterest). But there’s having the image in your head and then actually managing to bring it to life.
With styleboxe, each look is already pre-styled and pre-packed, ready to be delivered straight to your door or venue, home or abroad. Also, included within your styleboxe is a stylecard, to help you set out your decorations on the day. Your very own professional event stylist without the price tag.
And if you are going down the hiring route, remember, you can’t hire all the decorations. It can be quite an effort buying all the little extras whilst attempting to ensure they match your existing decorations. This is how we again make life easier for our brides to be.
FYI the lovely flowers don’t come with the centrepieces unfortunately, but we do of course make suggestions on your stylecard as to what would suit your chosen centrepiece. Our images are perhaps an even better indication for you.
You spend all this money on one special occasion so it’s nice to have something to show for it at the end of the day. Oh yes, as well as a husband or wife….
Believe it or not buying your table centrepieces can actually help you reduce your costs. Firstly the upfront costs between buying and hiring are not necessarily vastly different – we try to keep our costs as competitive as possible. But secondly you also have the option of selling your décor afterwards (Hot Tip : keep the styleboxes they come in neat and tidy!). There are many re-sale channels available nowadays. This can recover most of your costs, an option you do not have with hiring.
If you’re feeling particularly generous, they are also lovely presents for friends and guests, for use as dinner party décor.
I don’t know about you, but it seems a nice idea knowing that the decorations are yours. That they haven’t been a part of many other weddings before, but that their journey starts with your special day. (Cheesy I know, but we’re talking weddings here, what do you expect?)
The nicest part we find though, is when your anniversary inevitably comes around. What better way to mark the occasion than using the table centrepieces used on your actual wedding day?
