Hi I would like to start a wedding rental business from my home. I would like to rent out mainly table centerpieces but also candalabras, ring pillows, flower girl baskets, unity candles, runners, maybe even chocolate fountain, champangne fountains, etc. I have a large home with plenty of room for storage. The centerpieces would be customized. I would have lots of different elements (vases, candles, flowers etc) I would meet with the bride in her home with a porfolio of different centerpieces I could create and we would put together the different elements to create a centerpiece she like and I would then rent to her however many she needed. I have lots of ideas for expansion but I would like to find out if this sounds like an idea that brides would like. There is nothing like it in our area (Las Vegas!), I know I couldn't find centerpieces to rent when I was planning my daughters wedding last year. Centerpieces can be very expensive to buy and then you are stuck with 20 centerpieces. Thanks for any feedback!

At first glance, I also liked the idea.
Then this thought popped into my head...
At the last several weddings I went to, I took home the centerpiece from the table... What if the wedding guests take your centerpieces home with them??? That should be considered in your contracting with the bride.
