What do I need to hire and how much will it cost?

In 2014, I posted a blog about the average hire costs for a wedding. Since then, it is has become my most popular blog ever and the one I most often suggest couples read.

The hire industry in this area has changed in the last two years, with several new hire companies now offering specialty items like tiki bars and gold cutlery.

Some things haven’t changed and one is my suggestion that couples get a quote from a hire company early on in their planning process. It can be a significant expense and needs to be taken into account so it doesn’t take you by surprise after the budget has already been allocated.

What do I need to hire and how much will it cost? This really is a "how long is a piece of string question", as the answer depends on the number of guests, menu style, venue and budget. A good hire company will look at all the details of a wedding and know what that couple will need and what it will cost.

Here are some of Byron and the Gold Coast's best:

Byron Bay Wedding and Party Hire - my first call for all hire needs, as they not only have the best customer service, but are constantly adding to their inventory.

Hampton Event Hire – incredible décor and tableware range.

Sperry Tents – for beautiful yet practical sailcloth tents.

Frank & Joy – unique décor and furniture.

Events Party Hire - another great one stop for hire like equipment and marquees.
