Crystal candelabra rental fee

Our crystal candelabras have become very popular.  We recieve  many request weekley from couples looking to rent them and then ..... they hear how much they cost.  

 The rental fee starts at $100 each and can run even more depending on the venue and setup time constraints.  If rented in combination with our floral services the fee is less. 
Now to explain the cost.  Each candelabra comes in 2 parts the base and the arms and are assembled onsite. If 10 candelabras are rented then 20 boxes are loaded out of storage and into the van where they are brought to our work area, inspected and tuned up. They are then loaded back into the van to be taken to the wedding venue and then unloaded again for assembley.  Each candelabra also has 5-6 glass shades that are hand washed for each event and are added to the candelabras after they are assembled onsite.  

Prep time is 2 hours,  time to load in, remove boxes  and set up each candleabra is 2.5 -3.5 hours with 3 people.  Load out time and break down at end of the night is about 1.5 hours and normally done around midnight with 2 people. 

Beware of individuales who rent them for cheap.  If your wedding is taken place in Connecticut make sure they come with candles shades and not taper candles and that the cost of those items are included in your rental agreement. Most of all make sure the company or individual is setting them up and breaking them down at the end of the night and that it's not your responsibility to do so.  No couple should have to nor want to spend 6 hours the day of their wedding setting up and taking down decor.

Signature tall centerpieces

 We receive many request for our signature tall centerpiece designs. 
 These types of  designs cost more than shorter style centerpieces.  Not just because they require more flowers but the set up and break down takes that much longer.  Transporting them to the venue takes more time and man power and breaking down at midnight adds to the cost. 

We design these style of centerpieces often and know exactly the amount of flowers and time it takes to construct them and how much time is needed to set them up and have them in place before the start of the reception. Some venues only give us 2 hours to get in and get out, not leaving much room for error or mistakes.  Thankfully, when you hire us, you'er also hiring our crew that is trained to handled the tightest of time constraints.  

The visual impact these types of centerpieces make can't be duplicated and is worth every penny.  Knowing that each one will be designed beautifully and set up in time and with love, is priceless. 

Happy Planning,
