    The final touches that will bring your vision to life

    Southern Charm Rentals was recommended to us by our wedding Florist and provided the final touches needed to bring our life to vision. Kathie was kind, quick to respond and was helpful in providing recommendations. She is organized and makes the whole process a seamless one which is greatly appreciated since it is one less thing to have to worry about!

    Such beautiful rentals!

    As soon as I saw photos of these rentals, I HAD to have them for my wedding. I had no idea what colour story or theme I was going to choose for my wedding, but once I saw these, inspiration flew right through me! There was so many beautiful pieces to choose from, and prices were very reasonable! Kathie was able to provide a list of calligraphers for signage, which was SUPER helpful. Kathie was so welcoming and kind as well. When COVID-19 forced us to change the location of our wedding, Kathie was very accommodating and assisted us with a new plan to make sure the rentals got to and from the new location safely! You need these rentals for your wedding! :)

    Beautiful Décor

    Kathie has the most beautiful décor options for rent. I stumbled across her on Instagram through a calligrapher I followed at the time. Not only is she pleasant to work with, but she has great taste and is helpful in terms of making recommendations based on the aesthetic you're striving to achieve. She was accommodating as my husband was cutting it close during his return of the rentals the day after our wedding, but she was kind and patient regardless.

    We will certainly recommend Kathie to anyone looking for unique pieces for their wedding or special occasion!

    Southern Charm Vintage Rentals's reply:

    Thank you, Rachael, for the lovely comments. You were a dream to
    work with. We were so pleased to be a part of your special day and hope to see you again...for the next fun occasion. Much happiness!!!
    Kindly,
    Kathie

    Southern Charm Vintage Rentals - Makes Wedding Dreams Come True!

    Southern Charm Vintage Rentals is truly one of a kind. For our wedding at The Doctor's House, the pieces from Southern Charm Vintage Rentals added so many beautiful touches and aesthetic to our day. Kathie truly made my wedding dreams, hopes and vision come to life. We still have guests commenting on all of the details that were included from chalkboards, vintage mirrors, vintage spoons and cups (for our Hot Chocolate bar) and so many other items that brought our vision to life. Kathie styled our decor the day of and worked with our vendors to help bring everything together. I cannot say enough good things about Southern Charm Vintage Rentals. Thank you for everything!

    Southern Charm Vintage Rentals's reply:

    Thank you, Graham, for this kind and warm review. You've left me blushing! We are so happy that your expectations were met and you had the day you deserved.

    Our planner had suggested Kathie from Southern Charm Vintage Rentals...I had difficulty sourcing the 'look' I had wanted for some of our wedding decor (i.e. receiving tables, dessert tables, and signage) at a reasonable cost. It didn't make sense to me to buy items especially when I started tallying up the total. Kathie had the pieces that I was looking for at reasonable rental prices. To be honest, I could have spent the entire afternoon at her shop...her pieces are so lovely and unique and there's so much selection! She had a variety of different styles of the items I was looking for (i.e. table numbers, signage, sweet table set up etc...). Kathie is such an incredibly sweet person as well. My husband and I loved working with her and she is definitely someone who genuinely cares about her clients and their events. She made the process very easy and fun, recommending pieces/set ups for the look that we had wanted (always without pressure) and I ended up an even more amazing set up than I could have imagined.

    For future events, I will most definitely keep Kathie in mind but also highly recommend her to all my friends and family seeking out great looking pieces that will stand out on their big day!

    Fabulous and Beautiful Decor

    Wow! Southern Charm Decor provides the most amazing service. Kathie was professional and responsive through communication via email/phone. She was a pleasure to work with when selecting decor and finalizing details. She was accommodating throughout the pandemic with multiple date changes. Her decor is stunning to say the least. So many unique pieces and I received so many compliments from my guests. Kathie is also so kind and she boosted my spirits when I was feeling down about postponing. She strived to go above and beyond by setting up my favours and doing all that she could to ensure the wedding day went smooth. I can't thank her enough and I highly recommend her services.

    Southern Charm Vintage Rentals's reply:

    Kate, you were such a pleasure to work with. You went though so much with the date changes and COVID delays, that it made us so happy once your daily finally got to go forward. I had so much fun setting up and was thrilled the rain held off for you all day!! A sign of awesome things to come. Thanks for trusting your decor to us. Your choices looked amazing. We hope to work with you again for the next happy occasion. All the best for a love-filled and blessed life.

    Beautiful vintage pieces!

    Kathie's beautiful vintage pieces really took our wedding decor to the next level. We had our wedding at Graydon Hall this October, and her vintage mirrors (seating chart + welcome sign), as well as mirror table numbers complimented the space so well. Kathie was super helpful during our wedding planning process and was super responsive and patient with all our questions. We would highly recommend Kathie to anyone looking for unique vintage pieces to decorate their wedding.

    Southern Charm Vintage Rentals's reply:

    Thank you so much for this lovely review, Jacqueline. We loved being part of your day and the mirror combo signage turned out so dreamy!! Thank you for taking the time to send this most-appreciated review.

    Beautiful Pieces

    Kathie was so great to work with and very well organized which I loved during those stressful wedding planning moments. Kathie was always responsive when I emailed with a change to my decor list or I needed assistance with something. The decor was beautiful and blended perfectly with my theme. From the mirrors to the candlesticks and other pieces, everything worked very well. And she had so many diverse and beautiful pieces back at her shop. If I ever need any more vintage decor in the future, I will definitely go to Kathie!

    Southern Charm Vintage Rentals's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this kind review, Kristina! It was our pleasure to work with you and we hope to see you again for another happy event. All the best for much love and happiness. Kindly, Kathie ; )
