In the life of any small company, so many changes in a year. It’s said that dogs live seven years to every year of ours, and I’m beginning to think that a twelve-month cycle for a wedding rental business can have the same feeling of acceleration!
2017 brought a vast array of change, challenges, and successes to Plank & Pearl. Just a year ago we were finishing the remodel of our building and stepping around ladders, paint cans, and sawdust. We hadn’t yet booked summer weddings and didn’t anticipate how busy we’d be August through December. We couldn’t’ imagine we’d buy the extensive vintage inventory of a local rental company that was closing shop. And most surprising of all was how our clients reacted to our fresh supply of beautifully upholstered vintage settees and chairs. The whimsy of tufted velvet in gorgeous gem-tones is in high demand. One bride described her choices as “straight out of a fairytale wedding.”
Our theme for 2018 is “lighter and brighter.” We’re excited to launch our redesigned website, with a brighter design and greater usability for our clients. We’ll be refreshing our inventory with new pieces and parting with older collections that don’t fit our more focused approach to event rentals. And, as always, it’s a brighter day when we get to work with some of Denver’s most talented wedding professionals in treasured Colorado venues.
As the days lengthen little by little, the skies are brighter and spring feels like a true possibility. At Plank & Pearl, our mood is lighter as we anticipate a sweet and festive wedding season—and hope that you are, too!
