With COVID postponing so many Pinellas County weddings in 2020, many couples have opted for a backyard ceremony instead.

A Vendor Offering All The Essentials

One of the biggest mistakes couples make when planning their backyard weddings is renting the essentials from too many vendors. The easiest way to proceed is to find a company that offers as many of the essentials as possible.

What are the essentials? These are the items you'll definitely need such as tables, chairs, linens, tents, dance floors, lighting, china, silverware, and glassware. Some of these vendors even offer decor options like ceremony arches or altars, drapery, chair covers, centerpieces, and aisle runners.

Here are some of the highest-rated Pinellas County vendors who offer all of the essentials:

1. Rent-All City
