At Coastal Classy Events and Design, sometimes we fall in love with unique pieces that we know our couples will love too. We love our clients so much that we take one for the team and purchase these lovelies and make them available to rent so that you don't have to hunt them down and pay top dollar for them on your own.

This gold and marble cake stands is one of our favorites, but if it doesn't fit your style don't worry, we have plenty of others. And the best part is that Meghan has been hard at work gathering a gallery of images of all the pretty things we have to offer. So coming soon we'll open a rentals section on our website where couples can browse wonderful things we've found to make your wedding even more personal.

The office of Coastal Classy Events and Design is in Old Monterey at 281 Webster Street.
