Decorating on a budget? Allow us to introduce our newest find.
It’s the oldest trick in the budget book: when you’re trying to save serious cash, it pays to shop around. But shopping around takes time, and when you’re in the midst of planning the biggest day of your life, time all too quickly becomes a scarce commodity. That’s why we do the shopping around for you, leading us to discover Auckland’s Fairytale Wedding Hire.
Cheryl Daniels was inspired to set up an affordable hire business when planning her son’s wedding last year. “There are so many companies hiring out or selling beautiful wedding décor, but when we started to add up the costs, they quickly fell out of reach,” she says. “I was determined to help my son and his fiancée create their dream day despite a tight budget, so I set about sourcing the items to pull it together.”
The creative process – one she describes as “many months of late nights, a lot of blood sweat and tears, yet hours and hours of excitement and laughter” – was one Cheryl enjoyed so much, she decided to take it beyond her son’s event.
“A wedding is so special in so many ways,” she says. “My son’s wedding motivated me to help all brides out there afford their fairytale wedding. Every bride deserves a beautiful wedding despite budget constraints, so this venture is motivated by something very different. Something way deeper, and something more personal and intimate.”
What started as a basic collection of wedding-centric accessories turned into a fully stocked hire business offering both combination deals and individual item hires across a range of props (such as wishing wells, romantic arches and fairylight curtains), as well as décor and electrical equipment.
A family-owned business, Fairytale Wedding Hire dodges the overheads of larger hire companies to offer budget-friendly, personable, tailored service.
