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! :)Sent on 14/01/2021

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.Sent on 30/10/2019
We will certainly recommend Kathie to anyone looking for unique pieces for their wedding or special occasion!

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!Sent on 02/01/2019
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. You were the sweetest bride to work with, which made all of your vendors excited to go that extra mile to make sure you got the day of your dreams. What a wonderful florist you had...the whole vision came to life like magic that day. One of the prettiest wedding of the year. We wish you a lifetime of happiness and hope we have the pleasure of seeing you again for the next happy occasion. xoxoxo, Kathie

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.Sent on 09/09/2016
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!

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.Sent on 03/11/2020
