So, you’ve been gawking at #mivintage setups for a while and your boyfriend of several years finally pops the question! (What took him so long?) Naturally, your Wedding is all planned out via Pinterest and now you just need to execute “the look”. After calling your BFF's to share the great news and arguing about the type of dresses they’ll be wearing… you make an appointment with the event rental company you know will help take your décor to the next level: Mi Vintage Rentals (of course)! You’ve made an appointment for the upcoming week and are now curious of what to expect! Below, we’ll be explaining the process from the time you schedule your appointment to the time you finalize your Invoice. If you haven’t made an appointment yet or are unsure if we are the right company for you, we hope we can sway you to come for the bubbly and stay for our rentals!
ONE: Set Up An Appointment
The first and most important part of the process is scheduling an appointment. Mi Vintage Rentals is a Miami based company that carries a huge selection of vintage, rustic, vintage-glam, boho, modern-vintage and eclectic pieces guaranteed to help take your wedding, baby shower, bridal shower, baptism, first communion or whatever occasion you’re celebrating to the next level! Making the event of your dreams into a reality is just a simple email or phone call away.Our meeting days are Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am-1pm. On Mondays and Tuesdays we work hard to organize the showroom in order to make it look impeccable for you, so we do not hold meetings on either of those days. To secure your appointment, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 786-499-3110. Once we know your event date, location, and contact number; your appointment has been finalized. Woohoo! Now, let’s fast-forward to the day of the appointment. This is where the fun truly begins!
TWO: THROUGH THE RAINBOW HALL & INTO THE MINT DOOR
Showroom experiences are important to us! Not only are you able to finally meet that farm table or settee piece you’ve been stalking for several months (we love stalkers), but we get to meet you and hear your story. Everyone that walks in through our mint door has a unique story and we love listening to them. It makes us feel so special that you have decided to share your special occasion with us or at least give us the chance to prove that we’ll do whatever it takes to make your day perfect! Our showroom is located at the edge of Doral within the warehouse district. Our address is 5463 NW 72 AVE, MIAMI, FL 33166. To help our lovely clients find our warehouse easier, and because we have a slight obsession with this color, we’ve painted our office door in MINT! It is truly hard to miss. As for parking, we have plenty of free parking spaces in front of our warehouse, just park wherever you’d like.
The moment we hear your knock, one of Event Specialists will come out to greet you! Walking in, you’ll see a handwritten wall where our founder, Liz, explains how she turned her love for the olden things into a company that today has helped over thousands of clients! Feel free to read it once you arrive.
As you come in and take a seat on our comfy couch, we’ll provide you with a questionnaire to fill out. Now, this is not your doctor’s-office-kind-of-paperwork! This simple sheet won’t take much of your time and will help our Event Specialist get to know you and your style a bit more, which is a total must for a successful event! Because we know Rose helps us all get through the day (or morning… hey it’s 5 o’clock somewhere right?!), we offer you some while you wait. For our preggos, we offer our “mom-se”, made from sparkling berry juices. You didn’t think we’d leave you out right?! Mommies-to-be deserve some bubbly too! The choice is yours and it comes served in an adorable flute! And of course, we also have water available served in the cutest branded bottles we ever did see!
Once your paperwork is filled out and you’ve enjoyed your drink, feel free to ask for more if you’d like, it is time to make your way through the rainbow hall and into the whimsical world of Mi Vintage!
Our rainbow hall is filled with most of our small details meticulously arranged by color. From vintage books to birdcages, airplanes to brass candle holders, vinyl’s to old cookie jars. We love when clients see a piece and it instantly takes them back to memories of their childhood. The nostalgia and warm feeling that our pieces provide them is priceless. If there are any small pieces that you are in love with, and must absolutely have at your event, let us know and we’ll add it to your list of favorites.
At the very end of the hallway is another mint door and once you go inside, your life will forever change. No, really, it will! Our inventory is breathtaking (if we do say so ourselves) and if you admire collected heirlooms just as we do, you’ll never want to leave!
We have racks upon racks and shelves upon shelves filled with furniture and props of all genres: vintage, rustic, mid-century, industrial, vintage-glam, boho, modern-vintage and eclectic. All categorized to make your navigation across the warehouse easier. While exploring our showroom, imagine that you are creating a registry but instead of a gift-registry, you are creating an event-wishlist. Your Event Specialist will take you around, provide ideas of pieces that will be the perfect fit for your event, and she’ll jot down all your faves and add it to your list.
THREE: THE END AND THE BEGINNING…
Once you’ve sipped on some bubbly, taken a tour of our showroom, picked out all your favorites and spoken to one of our Event Specialists about your special event; your appointment has come to an end. But this is only the beginning of your rental journey, we promise we’ll be in touch soon! In the next two (business) days after your appointment, you’ll receive a perfectly curated Wishlist composed of all your favorites! Can I get a WOOT WOOT?! Please note that Saturday and Sunday do not count as business days since our offices are closed. Once you’ve had a chance to review your Wishlist, we’ll help you finalize it and confirm your reservation!
Having you over the showroom is extremely special to us! Without all of you, we wouldn’t be here today and no matter how much time passes by or how large our company grows, we never forget that! Unless you do this for a living, it is very easy to become overwhelmed with planning your own event and for that reason; from the moment you step in through our mint door, please know that you can count on us for whatever you may need. We know you’re busy and don’t have time to be skipping from place to place getting quotes and contracts from dozen of vendors. We pride ourselves in being an all-inclusive rental company and having amazing prices, so you don’t have to look elsewhere! We will do whatever it takes to make you feel at ease, answer any questions you may have and make the rentals process easy and painless as well as provide excellent referrals for whatever we don’t offer.
Thanks so much for reading our first official blog post! We hope it was informative yet not a total snooze to read! We have many more coming your way so stay tuned!
