Retro and quirky prop hire in Essex & Suffolk


We stock various props for styling your wedding or party. The props we stock fit into a number of categories but are mainly retro and a little bit on the different side. We have listed a few examples below for you to get an idea of what we stock.

Vintage desks and tables
Various sizes and styles in stock to hire, with popular items being our Georgian style writing decks ideal for a gift table with a difference. We have even been known to hire these out with one of our Dreamwave DJ to work from, completing a wedding theme.
Well used suitcases
Our suitcases look to be well travelled so a little bit more won’t hurt. You can hire these to make a great feature for your wedding or party presents to fit in to. They also make good design and décor items to fit in with any travel themed event.
Old Books
We have all the classics… Ideal to hire out in bulk to enhance a wedding theme such as a Midsummer Night Dream or one with a whimsical feel. These look great stacked in piles or set up alongside our LED candles to line a wedding ceremony.
Retro Lamps and light fittings
Sticking with the lighting theme like the majority of our other hire services, these make a good addition. Our hire stock mainly consists of standard lamps and tall lounge style sized units.
We have fitted vintage filament lamps to these and exposed the shades.
These are a very versatile prop to hire. We can create many different looks with pallets from making bars, tables and seating to full backdrops and DJ booths.
Vintage radios
With music playing a big part at Dreamwave Events we have, over the years, managed to collect a large number of vintage and old radios from the by-gone years. Our stock includes pre-war ones as well as popular designs from the 50s & 60s. And do you want to know the best thing…? We fitted MP3 player docks and speakers into them! You can hire these to play background music for your drinks reception or wedding breakfast. How cool is that?!
Bits and Bobs
We are always sourcing unusual and inventive props to widen our stock. A full prop brochure is coming soon detailing all we stock in the section of hire items.  Popular bits and bobs we like to hire out are candle sticks and curios, plus old pictures and frames.
