When you are planning a wedding, the color palette can quickly become a big point of debate. What colors represent you? Represent the day? The mood? The season? Do any of these options clash with each other? Well, to help ease some of that pressure, here are a few color trends that are making a big splash in 2019.

Dusty Rose. With a mix of light purples, dark burgundies, and navy blue; Dusty Rose is a palette that is both non-traditional, yet oddly precedent of the more subdued and darker tones that have been a growing style staple of weddings in the past few years. These colors really feel sleek and present a sharp focus that will get your guests taking notice for all the right reasons.

Sun Yellow. This palette of canary yellow, dark red, and pale blue is perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding. These colors allow the yellow to really stand out and paints a great muted backdrop of sky and earth tones to perfectly compliment the bright glow of the yellows. Expect to see these colors in plenty of Bridal parties in 2019.

Sunset. This might be our personal favorite palette, as it evokes both a nostalgic vibe while also being very modern with its mix of peach orange colors and rustic grays & beige. This color palette pairs well with the Fall season best, but we can see this being a big hit any time of the year, as it also doubles as having a generally pleasant feel for evening weddings.

No matter which color palette you decide on, Hawaiian Style Event Rentals has you covered with years of expertise and a limitless amount of options at play for your next Wedding or event decor. So contact us today and get started planning your next event!

New Year’s Eve is a wonderful time to reminisce with friends and loved ones and get excited for the year ahead! Pick up the phone and invite some partygoers, because we’ve got 5 tips for hosting a New Year’s Eve bash to remember.

Jam Out

N.Y.E. is a night for everyone celebrate, get invigorated, and let loose. Set the tone of your soiree with the proper beats. If you’re not confident in your own iPod playlists, don’t chance it!  Consider hiring a DJ to host the evening. Music is the most important piece of this puzzle and it will make or break the success of your event. If your venue is spacious, you might need to rent sound equipment like speakers and microphones that allow you to address guests and provide entertainment to keep the party going all night.

Feed Them Well

Your food and beverage menu runs a very close second to the music. This is your second chance to impress guests. An open bar is always a nice touch. If your pocketbook isn’t prepared for that sort of commitment, consider hosting a specialty drink for cocktail hour or rent a self-serve Champaign fountain for your guests! Whether you’re providing dinner or hors-d’oeuvres only, keep food warm with the right chafing dishes.

Don’t Forget the Little Things

Take the time to focus on things like decor, flatware, and linens to provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable and social-media-worthy evening. Evenings will be chilly at this time of year, so think ahead and rent heaters if you expect guests to utilize a patio space. Consider giving out creative party favors at the end of the night and be sure you come up with a festive hashtag for everyone to use! It’s the little things that will set your New Year’s Eve bash above the rest.

Prepare For The Long Haul

One thing to remember about hosting a New Year’s Eve party is that the “party” doesn’t really even start until midnight! It’s going to be a late night and you will want to plan accordingly. Plan ahead for designated drivers, energy drinks, coffee, midnight snacks, and plenty of water. You might even set out festive fuzzy socks or flip flops for ladies to slip on as their feet start to tire.

Your New Year’s Eve bash will require some behind-the-scenes work. With all the right elements, it will be remembered for years to come. Contact our team of experts here at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals to get your party started on the right foot.

So, you’ve rented the perfect venue for your event and you’re excited to get started with your decorating… until you notice a few imperfections that simply must be handled – immediately. Fortunately, with a little imagination and perhaps a few supplies, you can transform your imperfect venue into a stunning space for your event. Here, we’ve diagnosed some common venue issues you might face. Plus, we’ve provided some flawless solutions to ensure a successful event no matter what you’re dealing with.

The Flooring Is Terrible!

You may have chosen a venue that is the perfect size and in the perfect location for your event. But now, you’re realizing that the flooring is just awful! Don’t worry. Just rent a dance floor and prepare for a great night ahead.

The Chairs Are Ugly

Having ugly chairs is not ideal, but if you find yourself in this situation, you’ve got a couple of options. If the chairs are usable, but just not visually appealing, you can make your own chair covers with fabric or tulle. On the other hand, if the chairs just will not work, you might want to rent chairs instead.

The Wallpaper Is Too Bold

Whether the walls are painted a bright color that clashes with your decor, or they’re covered with outdated wallpaper, you can easily cover them with drapery or use lights to create the ambiance you want for your event.

The Space Is Too Large

If your event does not require a large amount of space, but you’ve got all this extra room, you can use rectangular tables instead of round. Rectangular tables take up more space and can be used in tandem with lounge furniture to create a cozier, more welcoming environment for your guests.

There Are Unsightly Posts and Columns

If your venue boasts posts and columns that just seem to get in the way, you can disguise them with foliage or drapery that complements your decor.

Overall, If you’re unhappy with your venue’s appearance, there’s no problem that can’t be fixed with a little imagination and a few decorations. Don’t stress, and to learn more about how you can transform your venue into the stunning space you desire, contact the experts at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals.

Whenever you plan your wedding, you’ll likely imagine friends, family, and colleagues enjoying your big day.  Whether the event is large or small, having your guests there makes all the difference.  There are ways to ruin the moment for guest though.  Avoid the following guest irritants if you would like your wedding to be memorable for everyone attending.

More Than A Mouthful Of Speeches

Hardly anyone comes to Hawaii to hear long speeches—even during a wedding.  After a few minutes of talk about experiences of the past, cherishing moments, family histories, wedding vows, and like nearly anyone would be a bit restless.  Being at a wedding (likely in formal attire) listening to long speeches is not on the top of anyone’s list—including family.  Try to keep the orators to a few minutes tops to keep the wedding moving along.

Food Limits

Among the last things that you ever want to occur at your wedding is for guests to lack food.  A lack of food would also include going top heavy on things your guest do not want to eat.  Hungry guests quickly turn into irritable guests, and they will want to leave even if they won’t tell you.  Make sure that your menu is diverse, and your food supply is plentiful.

Uncomfortable Furnishings & Locations

Seating that is highly uncomfortable is a wedding killer.  The same is true of seating that is located in the sun, near blasting speakers, or near a lot of foot traffic.  Plan your seating well to make the wedding enjoyable.  Instead of only having chairs, try using a lounge area that some can use if they need.

At Hawaiian Style Event rentals, we’ve helped hundreds of couples with the essential items for their wedding.  If you are looking for a vendor in Hawaii, give us a call.  We’d love to share our insights into the nuances of hosting an island wedding.

So, you’ve decided to make Hawaii the location for your corporate event.  Excellent choice!  There are few locations on Earth that can provide an island experience like Hawaii.  The landscape, culture, food, activities, and weather keep people coming back every year.  Businesses of all sorts host their events here annually as well.

During the setup of your event, you’ll likely need to rent items such as tents, chairs, dancefloors, bars, etc.  However, which vendor should you choose?  Below are a few points you may want to keep in mind.

Reputation, Reputation, Reputation

As you research your vendors, investigate their reputations.  Of course, you can look into online reviews.  However, when doing so, you should be discerning.  Read their reviews to see if they are authentic.  Check for details instead of a simple “they were awesome” reviews.  As you boil down your list, ask the businesses if you can contact some of their former clients.  Speaking with another company or client about whether they would work with a vendor again is very telling.

Standard of Service

While choosing your company in Hawaii, you’ll want everything to run smoothly so that everyone can enjoy themselves as much as possible.  Working with a vendor who is willing to fulfill your needs is critical to having a successful event.  Ask your vendor questions about setup and accommodations for unexpected events.  They should be able to walk you through their protocols and give examples of what they’ve done in the past.

Quality of Rental Items

You’ll need to know the quality of the items you are renting.  Furnishings that are flimsy or dirty can hurt the reputation of your business (particularly if you invite VIPs).  The vendor should be able to send you images of the items you are renting or give you a pre-rental walkthrough of their items.

There is nothing like having a bar at your wedding.  It is an easy way to move from the marriage rites and ceremony to the celebratory activities.  Before you decide on alcohol:

  • Verify if the venue you are using has a cork charge (if so, you will want to include such costs in your overall budget).
  • If you are setting up the bar yourself, be sure to stock enough for your intended number of guests (the typical formula is 1 drink per person per hour).

There are several types of bar styles that we feature for rental.  Of course, each of them can be modified in thousands of ways to accommodate your décor, theme, and guest size.  While you are choosing your bar style, you’ll need to determine the way your bar functions.  Below are the three main ways that most couples set up their alcoholic bar.

Open Bar

If you have an open bar, your guests will love you!  It is the most generous bar approach, but it will raise the total cost of your wedding.  Open bars, if you don’t know, allow guests to order any drink they desire.  When there is an open bar, your guests will likely drink more than normal.  Hence, you may want to increase your overall alcohol budget.

Limited Bar

To relieve yourself of a huge alcohol bill, you could limit the number of drinks each guest can have for free.  Such an arrangement would be a limited bar.  In this setup, you would set not only the number of drinks but also the types that are available to your guests without cost.  To control bar access and to have things run smoothly, here are some strategies:

  • Have specific times for when alcoholic beverages are served.
  • Hire wait staff to distribute drinks so that guests do not overwhelm the bar.
  • Limit the amount of time the bar is open.
  • Give drink tickets each guest along with their invitations.

Cash Bar

The least expensive way to go is using a cash bar.  Every guest pays for their share of what they drink.

Unless you have an unlimited source of money, it makes sense to budget your Hawaiian wedding appropriately.  Just because you are opting to keep a strict budget doesn’t mean that your wedding will not turn out just as you want it.  In fact, several of our clients put to use a variety of money-saving ideas to keep their weddings in the financial black.  This blog and future ones will cover some of those tips.  If you have questions about any of the following suggestions or would like to speak with the Hawaiian Style Event Rentals team, give us a call at 808.740.0065.

Pick A Cost-Effective Time

Where you aware how holidays can affect the price of your wedding?  The fiscal law of supply and demand raises the prices of things such as:

  • Catering
  • Entertainment
  • Flowers
  • Hotel accommodations
  • Travel

Hence, choosing a wedding date that is not around a major holiday can save you a significant amount of money.

Travel Wisely

Researching your airfare is essential if you are trying to keep the price of the wedding down.  A good idea is to keep watch for great deals to Hawaii if you plan to purchase your tickets yourself.  Another strategy is to take advantage of destination wedding packages which sometimes include hotel accommodations.  If you go this route, keep in mind that you may get better discounts if you order with a group.  Lastly, book your flight as early as possible to find the best deals.

Register Your Wedding Costs

Instead of listing nominal items list household goods, list portions of your major wedding expenses.  Having expenditures like the meals, honeymoon suite, entertainment, wedding rental items, and other odds and ends can greatly reduce your overall costs.  Furthermore, you won’t have to deal with having your guest bring gifts with them to Hawaii, and you won’t have to pay additional expenses to have them fly back with you.

Hawaiian Style Event Rentals is always at your service to help you have the wedding of your dreams.  Call us if you need assistance planning for the necessary items for your Hawaiian wedding.

Hosting an event can be a tall order.  Yet, one of the foremost objectives of having an event is to have your guests enjoy the function.  There are several ways to accomplish guest enjoyment, but one central aspect is the comfort.  It is nearly impossible to enjoy an event if you are uncomfortable.  Hence, creating spaces that allow your guest to relax and appreciate the atmosphere is an essential part of being a good host.  Sometimes when clients book our team at Hawaiian Style Event Rentals, we’ll inquire about lounging areas for the proposed event.  Here’s why.

Lounging’s Importance

Sometimes lounging is overlooked.  Hosts focus on dining chairs and specific seating areas for all guests.  Although it is possible to have a functional event without a lounge area, it can lead to discomfort.  As a rule of thumb, the more guest you invite, the more you will need a lounging area.  Why?  As more people arrive, the more crowded the event will become.  People enjoy space and lounging areas enable your guests to space out a bit.

Another function of a designated lounge area is to create space where people can interact away from the crowd.  With more people come more noise, so a lounge area allows people to speak in normal tones.  It also creates an aura of relaxation, which is one of the whole points of having an event in Hawaii.  The natural setting of the islands invites your guests to figuratively “let their hair down” and soak up the tropical scenes.

Lounging Options for any Event

Hawaiian Style Event Rentals features lounging furniture suitable for any event you can imagine.  We have sofas, loveseats, tables, stands, and accompanying accessories that create intimate and friendly spaces.  Take a look at few our items within our Lounge Furniture Gallery.  If you have questions or would like to get ideas on setups, give us a call at 808-740-0065.
