#FeatureFriday: Waterford Event Rentals

Need help when it comes to designing your dream wedding color palette? Well, get to know the ladies of Waterford Event Rentals as they share their expertise!

What made you start Waterford Event Rentals?

Alyse Conyers and best friend, Hollie, started Waterford in their living rooms as a way to involve themselves in the event industry (which they loved), as well as make some extra money. They never imagined there would be such a demand for this type of business, but boy were they wrong! They started with chair covers and sashes, and then branched into much more!

What services and items does Waterford offer?

Products: Linens (tablecloths, table runners, overlays, napkins), chairs, tables (round, long, farm), plate chargers (acrylic & glass).

We offer tons of services that are sure to come in handy for your special day! Pickup and returns, delivery and pickup to the venue, or set up- where our staff takes care of EVERYTHING. The full service aspect of Waterford Event Rentals is what we call “The Waterford Way,” which is truly what makes us unique. Literally, no wrinkle goes unsteamed. Napkins are folded to perfection… etc. Basically a white glove service at your event!

What advice do you have for couples who have no idea where to start when it comes to linens and décor?

First, get the table sizes from your venue, this helps us provide you with the proper linen sizes.  Second, ask if your venue has their own linens- if so ask if they are floor length and what is the quality of those linens. No one wants a wrinkled/shrunken linen on their big day! Third, look on pinterest! Gather some inspiration that we can use to bounce ideas off of together.

Where do you get your design inspirations from?

Our ideas come from everywhere- IG, pinterest, past events that we use as inspiration then add a little twist, home interior stores, you name it! We can get inspired everywhere.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve drawn inspiration from?

Truthfully- there is no place that we consider too crazy for inspiration! Whether it’s the clouds in the sky, or on the colors an oil spill makes on the pavement- inspiration comes from all over! The crazier, the better!

What trends do you see for 2020 when it comes to linens and décor?

Some of the biggest trends we are seeing include velvet (a personal fav of ours), chiffon runners, which add a beautiful and flowy layer to your table, lots of dusty blue, and a lot of couples wanting to stay with neutral tones & greenery.

What’s the biggest tip you can give couples who work with Waterford Event Rentals?

Think outside of the box! Don’t be afraid to get completely unique with your table designs- trust us, we can make it happen!

What’s a fun fact about Waterford Event Rentals?

Waterford Event Rentals was named after the street Alyse & Hollie grew up on… Waterford Place.

Is there anything else we should know about Waterford Event Rentals?

We provide all different types of rentals, with all different price ranges. There isn’t an event that is too small/simple or too large/detailed for us to handle! Large budget, or small budget… we are here for you!

    ENTIRE VENUE

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!
