The Value Of A Personal Touch

“...and the drinks bar will hang amongst the trees!” she said, and it did. 

Brides-to-be are increasingly calling for personalized and unique touches to their wedding day or hens do. Also for the location and decor to be nothing short of their version of perfection, in order to create those seamless Insta-ready, Pinterest-perfect, frame-worthy photos that represent the ideals of her and hubby-to-be. The social era we live in today has created this common thirst for that unforgettable personal touch that will make our guests rave about the day.

However, when it comes to sourcing unique decor items, where the inspiration has come from other weddings worldwide, it can be a bit of a hindrance sourcing similarly inimitable items. If DIY is out of the question, brides can be left with little choice but to end up with less than charming alternatives from franchise hire stores, resulting in décor that is just short of predictable. White satin drapery, anyone?

The solution to this could be hiring a wedding planner, however cutting out the middleman may be a time-saver for this type of affair and more appealing to those on a budget. Besides, for those that are looking to treat their guests to the charms of an entirely unique atmosphere, there is something enriching about being able to source your own items for that bespoke touch. This would also allow your event or wedding to be even more special by including the pieces that truly spark joy (to quote our new friend, Marie Kondo) to you and/or your future husband.

Looking to a localised vintage hire store would address all of the issues when it comes to sourcing hire goods that can be customized, therefore modernized, with signage and florals to match your theme. Not to mention adding charm and pizzaz to your wedding or event. North Auckland’s AVA Hire was born to provide a solution to the woes of the bride craving a bespoke touch.

AVA Hire (Auckland Vintage Accessory Hire) offers a small but focused range of vintage décor and furniture pieces in the Snells Beach/Matakana area such as brass vases and candelabras, vintage crystal glassware and mirrors, market umbrellas, boho rugs and lanterns, and yes, a rustic hanging bar shelf. Not to forget a charming set of woodland chairs each individually sourced that when placed together around a long table seem to cheer with their outdoor surroundings or rustic venue. 

For those that would like to add that extra personal touch, AVA offers custom graphics in the form of mirror or frame signage to welcome guests to the venue or display the range of refreshments available at the bar. Once guests have wet their whistle why not provide a jumbo vintage polaroid frame perfect for endless group photo opportunities? These can be designed to match the theme of the wedding, hens do or any other event. Some brides-to-be have opted to have a jumbo polaroid at both their hens party and wedding with similar or completely different themes.
