BTW | SHOW - Vintage Chic Rentals - Using Decor To Dress Up Your Backyard Wedding

Steven: We have talked a little bit about backyard weddings. Now there is kind of a stigma with backyard weddings that they are a little gross. I had a backyard wedding and it looked amazing. Tell me a little bit about how you have been able to transform backyard weddings.

Amanda: I love backyard weddings and like you said the backyard stigma is ya know, but people are renting out villas and huge mansions and having backyard weddings and the backyard is kind of a blank slate to make it what they want so it's fun when they come here and we can fill it with fun lounge areas and different unique pieces and sitting areas and totally transform it into what they are envisioning. They can make certain sections you know, this is where we are going to have all of our high top cocktails hours set up, this is where we are going to let everybody sit and watch everybody have fun on the dance floor.

S: Excellent

A: Oh yeah, I love a backyard wedding. I love a venue wedding too though.

S: For sure, I mean I think the thing that really struck me is just like how you can completely transform the space, and especially if you are really detail conscious, this is a whole look you are really providing.

About Amanda:

Hi there and welcome to Vintage Chic Rentals...I am Amanda, the face behind the name!  Little bit about me, I grew up in the great state of Texas but am living life’s adventure in sunny Phoenix, Arizona with my husband, 3 children, a white Maltipoo, a Holland Lop rabbit and 2 zebra fish (and a partridge in a pear tree).  I’m an avid coffee drinker, I start every morning off with a double shot latte!  I love a good pair of high heels and an extra dirty martini add a good steak to that mix and that is my idea of a perfect date night. I have always loved decorating and entertaining, as I got older I found it to be something that I not only loved but was also very good at.  My favorite event that really started this whole endeavor was my end of the school year wine party.  My 4th year planning this I wanted to go big and rent wine barrels and some rustic decor.  Unfortunately I was only able to find one company in the Phoenix area that carried wine barrels, that’s when the light bulb went on and Vintage Chic Rentals came to fruition. All of our inventory is curated and hand picked by me.  I do like many different styles and have incorporated that into our ever evolving and growing inventory.  I search high and low to find exactly what I am looking for, even having pieces reupholstered and custom built.  I love events and making them unique, just like each and every one of our clients.  I will help you pick out the perfect pieces to make your wedding or event exactly what you are envisioning.  We can bring your Pinterest boards and pins to life.  So if you are planning an event in the Phoenix Metro area...don’t just email or call me...come see me!!  I will spend time getting to know you, your personality and your style.  Then we will pick out that perfect sweetheart table, lounge area, ceremony backdrop or dessert bar.
