On Friday I had the honor of sitting down with Lane' Bigsby of Something Borrowed PDX at her warehouse and asking her my biggest questions for renting furniture and details for upcoming weddings. We talked about the renting process, the biggest wedding trends, and advice she has for couples planning their own 2017 and 2018 weddings.
We recorded this segment on Facebook Live, but I wanted to share with you some of my favorite highlights from the short video. To watch the full interview, click the video thumbnail at the bottom of the page.
Katie: How did you start Something Borrowed?
Lane: I started this almost six years ago now when I got married, and there was nothing out there that spoke to me. In fact, we coined our wedding "The Oddball Wedding" because nothing about it was very traditional. And I thought 'what am I going to do with this stuff afterwards?'...It all stemmed from our wedding.
Katie: What are some trends you're seeing in the 2017/2018 wedding seasons?
Lane: Copper Flatware, Blush details, & Greenery details
Katie: How far in advance from the wedding should couples contact you?
Lane: Nine months is the sweet spot. The sooner the better, because our items are one of a kind, and our selection is limited.
