Rustic weddings

Your wedding will be one of the most special days in your life, so it’s important to think about what kind of wedding is right for you and your partner. The style that you choose is your starting point because once you have that, you can look at venues and the wedding furniture hire in Sydney that best suits what you have in mind. Rustic weddings are one of the most popular choices around at the moment but to get the best results, it’s always a good idea to look into professional event styling in Sydney. This will take a lot of the stress out of planning and help make your special day as memorable as can be.

Details are everything

There are so many things to think about when planning a wedding but that’s half the fun! Think of each part of the planning as a puzzle piece that comes together to form one incredible picture. This is why all the little details are so important because you need to work out how something like lighting or seating will fit into the bigger picture. If you are looking at lighting, consider paper lanterns and festoon lights with a warm glow. Together, these can create the perfect atmosphere for your reception.

Make it personal

This is your special day, so think about the things that are important to you and allocate the budget accordingly. If you love a bit of wow factor, you could have a lighting feature like this Mr & Mrs sign. If you want something extra personal, you could get your own names up in lights! The event furniture hire in Sydney that you choose should be based on your venue so that you can keep the styling consistent and make the most of the space you’ll be using. Remember that rustic weddings tend to be more laidback and relaxed than formal and traditional ceremonies. Something as simple as a chalk board could be used to share the menu or even a wedding hashtag with your guests. Talk to your event stylist or the staff at the venue to incorporate some personal touches.

Use nature as much as possible

Rustic weddings are all about getting back to our roots and making all things natural the highlight of the day. Outdoor or open venues are best for this kind of theme to give the setting a natural backdrop. The venue and décor are the most important parts of a rustic wedding so think carefully about the type of venues you consider and the atmosphere that they will bring to your special day.

Don’t underestimate the power of flowers

The right floral arrangements can take your whole wedding to the next level. For a rustic wedding, combine your choice of flowers with greenery to make it feel authentic and a little more wild. Draw the eyes up by hanging these arrangements from above. When paired with the right lighting, this styling has a stunning effect.

If you’re interested in a rustic wedding for your big day, talk to Rocket Events. We have plenty of experience making our clients dream weddings into a reality. We help you every step of the way to ensure that the process is as seamless and stress-free as possible. Give us a call on 9838 9088 to have a chat about your wedding ideas today.

2018 highlights

The team at Rocket Events have been lucky enough to work on some fantastic projects throughout the last 12 months. Offering premium event furniture hire in Sydney is a busy gig! But before we get into everything that’s happening this year, we thought we’d give you a taste of some of the highlights from 2018. Each of these projects were rewarding in their own way and we’re looking forward to more great work in the coming year!

Good Food & Wine Show

In late June, we helped Cellarmasters style Vinny the touring cellar door! Using festoon lights, greenery and a lovely white picket fence, we made sure everyone who dropped by felt right at home. This set up was more than enough to grab people’s attention and we’re so glad that we could work with the Cellarmasters team to make this day a success!

     

The Invictus Games

Last October we joined the team of volunteers to help prepare the venue for the Invictus Games. Getting involved in this awesome event was easily a highlight of last year for the team at Rocket Events. Even the volunteer team were filled with the fantastic energy that the Games inspires. We were lucky to contribute some of our gear to helping the Invictus team and we’re thankful that we met some truly wonderful people.

     

What to look forward to?

In the coming months we’re going to be looking at a range of different topics to help you prepare and plan your events in 2019.

Luxury weddings

Your wedding is one of those significant life events that brings memories you will cherish forever. Starting the next stage of life with your partner is a wonderful moment, especially when you’re surrounded by your loved ones. To ensure that every part of your special day is as perfect as can be, make sure you find the perfect wedding furniture for hire in Sydney because this can take the atmosphere of your wedding to the next level. If you’re yet to choose the theme or styling for your big day, here are a few reasons why a luxury wedding could be the way to go.

Elegant

Your wedding décor should have a timeless class to it, and luxury styling is something that never really goes out of fashion. The colours you focus on should fit well with a luxury theme. Both white and gold are associated with glamour and elegance, but they also work well together to create a stylish environment for any event. The white wedding is a classic, but with the right details such as textured furniture and colourful floral arrangements you can make it your own.

    

Trendy

Luxury event styling in Sydney is a lasting trend. The popularity of social media platforms like Instagram has made appearance even more important as your guests will want to document the experience almost as much as you! Luxury wedding furniture is designed to photograph well and make you feel like a million dollars. Consider getting a flower wall to give your reception a burst of colour and greenery for your guests to pose in front of.

   

Memorable

Everyone goes to their fair share of weddings in a lifetime, but you want yours to stand out from the rest. True luxury styling is something we don’t experience often, and it is likely to leave a lasting impression on all your guests. Most importantly, it can make you and your partner feel extra special on your day. Going the extra mile for life’s biggest moments is always worth it.

   

Flawless

A luxury wedding needs to run smoothly and to take the pressure off, it’s always a good idea to consider professional help. If you’re prepared to handle most of the planning yourself, it’s important to look into your options for event furniture hire in Sydney because this will determine the overall look and feel of your wedding. Make sure you have someone there on the day to take care of any issues and keep everything in good shape in the lead up to the ceremony. You don’t want to spend half your special day stressing out, leave that to the professionals!

Corporate events and preparations for the new year!

As 2018 is wrapping up, it’s important to get started on the planning for any new year events that you have in mind. Ideally, you can find a trusted and experienced professional that covers corporate event hire in Sydney. This will help streamline the process and make it a lot easier to stay on top of the things you need to plan during one of the busiest times of year. If you’re not entirely convinced yet, here are a few reasons why a corporate event this new year is in your best interests!

Kick off the New Year in style

You want to show everyone that there are great things to come in 2019. A corporate event to start off the year is a great opportunity to show your employees, partners and public that they have a lot to look forward to. Presenting an appealing event for your organisation will reinforce and improve your image. Use of event furniture hire in Sydney can help take your event to the next level by keeping a consistent theme and boasting impeccable style.

It’s great for company culture

All businesses should invest in improving company culture and corporate events are a great place to start. As much as a new year’s event is about preparing for the future, it’s also a chance to celebrate success from 2018. By acknowledging any company milestones, you can share that success with everyone at the event. Give attendees the chance to network and build meaningful relationships both within and beyond the company.

Motivate and inspire

Corporate events present a great platform to share your goals with the people who have the skills to make them a reality. It’s also an opportunity to inspire your employees and give them a sense of the bigger picture ahead of all the hard work. Give them reasons to make sure they approach their work with a great mindset and maintain that motivation throughout the year.

Whether you hire the professionals to take your event styling to the next level or coordinate the occasion yourself, corporate events will always be an asset to your organisation.

Christmas parties: how to plan for the silly season

Christmas is fast approaching which means it is time for you to treat your team to a good time! We know that this can be one of the busiest times of year, but with corporate event hire in Sydney, a little help from the professionals will ensure that this year’s Christmas party is one of the best! Here are some tips to help you get organised in the lead up to your event.

Plan the date

The date is the first thing you need. Without a date, the rest of the party can’t be planned. Consider setting up a poll to work out which day suits the majority and will get the biggest turn out. Remember that Fridays or weekends are generally the easiest for people but also cost more as they’re in higher demand. Another thing to consider is whether you want a day or night event. A lunch or cruise could be perfect for during the day or for an evening event a cocktail party or gala dinner is the way to go.

Budget

Set up a realistic budget from the outset. Your budget and how you manage it will be deciding factors in the success of your event. A big budget doesn’t necessarily mean a great event (although it does help). How you use your budget is what really counts. Divide it up based on what the group wants. Remember that a Christmas Party is supposed to be a celebration of the employee’s efforts for the year, not management. It’s always a good idea to leave some money aside for any unexpected expenses. You can’t plan for everything, but you should always try!

The guests

The next thing is the guest list. Without a ballpark figure it’s difficult to work out the right venue, decorations and catering costs. Work out if you’re going to allow employees to bring another guest. This might make the event more enjoyable for the group but will increase the cost. If there will be a seating arrangement try to group people with colleagues from their own department and some they might not have met.

   

Venue

The venue is likely to be the biggest expense, so this is where sticking to your budget is more important than ever. Try to visit your options in person so that you can get an idea of what the event would look and feel like in that space. Make sure you clarify what’s included because many places will offer on site catering, furniture, equipment or staff which can help you costs. It’s also important to check who is responsible for the clean-up. The morning after a big night is never a good time to spend cleaning up.

There is a lot of effort that goes into planning a Christmas Party for your company. If you want to guarantee a great night with a lot less stress, talking to the professionals is the way to go. Rocket Events have more than twenty years of experience coordinating event styling in Sydney. If you need a hand organising your next event, give us a call on 9838 9088 to get your plans on track.

Garden parties

Now that the warmer months have started to roll in, more and more outdoor events begin popping up in the calendar. From weekend BBQs with the neighbours to engagement parties and baby showers, this is the time of year when outdoor events take centre stage. Set up can prove a little difficult without the right supplies but there are plenty of places to get event furniture for hire in Sydney. Since this is the season when everything starts to come to life, why not throw a blooming gorgeous Garden Party?

How do I find the right outdoor furniture?

The outdoor space you have available for the party will determine how many people you should invite and the kinds of furniture you will need to look at hiring for the occasion. Position comfortable lounges and chairs around coffee tables to make it convenient for guests to rest drinks and food on. Depending on the time of day, you will need to consider shade or lighting options. If you’re hosting a garden party during the day make sure you have plenty of refreshments available and umbrellas protecting lounge areas from too much sun. If you’re planning an afternoon event, consider hiring lanterns or festoon lights to keep the party going into the evening.

How do you style an outdoor event?

Styling a Garden party can be difficult without outdoor furniture hire. Some companies that offer event furniture for hire can also provide stylists to help you create the perfect setting for your guests. These professionals can help you choose colours and textures that complement your surroundings and find the best furniture to suit the occasion. If you find that parts of your garden are a little plain, use bold colours in furniture or accent pieces to balance the space.

To theme or not to theme?

From Alice in Wonderland tea parties for the kids to a Hamptons themed soirée for the ladies, there are plenty of great themes to choose from.
