I’ve worked in Dubai in events for the past 5 years, ex Dish catering, then starting IH with the two Australian owners I’ve seen the events industry grow a lot over the years.

What are some of your favourite trends that we can expect to see more of in 2018?

a lot more gold/black, rose gold has entered the market and become quite popular, also fabric ottomans are also showing popular for 2018.

What’s the most creative thing you’ve done for a wedding?

I can’t take credit for this, this goes to our marvellous creative wedding planners who we work very closely with, to name a few, Carousel, Cloud Nine Weddings, Cherry On Top, these ladies do incredible things with our furniture. I often see pictures of the end product and what they do with our equipment is breathtaking.

Innovative Hire Q&A lounge set up

Is there a certain ceremony or reception seating style that is popular right now?

Mixing and matching is very popular right now, so not just using the same table and chair, mixing different tables and different chairs, give an amazing twist.

What are the most common items to be hired for weddings?

Tiffany chairs, signature statement pieces like ice cream carts, gelato carts and rustic taco stands.

Innovative Hire Q&A Wired seating

Have you got a showroom where your clients can see samples or table mockups?

Yes – by appointment we offer the option for clients to come to our office/warehouse to see items in the flesh, it always gives a better perspective to see it in person.

Where are some of your favourite venues/settings in the UAE?

With such a great selection of amazing venues, some of the best would have to be Burj Khalifa, D3, St Regis Abu Dhabi & JW Marriot.

Innovative Hire Wire Letters

With your experience, what seemingly small detail can make a big impact at a wedding ceremony or reception?

Lighting, this is a detail that is often overlooked but adds an enormous impact, warm table lights on all tables creates a dramatic warm feel which a lot of people don’t use,

It is an added cost but well worth the spend

Do you have any top wedding tips you would like to share with couples?

Choose a theme, use a wedding coordinator, and be open to new and different ideas.
