I recently had to plan a rehearsal dinner for my son. A friend recommended I call Distinctive Event Rentals for the items I needed. I made an appointment and was helped by Norma. Norma was wonderful. She was such a big help with ideas and suggestions. I was very impressed with the quality and selection at Distinctive. Even though the colors we had to use were unusual, they had everything we needed available. Norma even helped with table decoration suggestions. We chose a rustic lantern. Everything was beautiful. I was so pleased. The planner for the venue took photos of our dinner to use in their advertising packet. Distinctive made everything so easy. Pickup and return was a breeze and their prices were so reasonable. I had never thought to use a rental company before. I will use Distinctive again and I will definitely recommend them to others.

Distinctive Event Rentals provided the tent, tables, chairs, bars, and all of the catering rentals for my reception, and everything was wonderful!! From the start, Laura was so great to work with - she was helpful in answering my questions, patient as I changed my mind probably more times than could be counted, and always positive and optimistic about the weather as I worried about my outdoor reception. The week of, as the forecast called off and on for storms, she was a huge help in guiding us to the best decisions with cancellations. When the set up guys came the day before, they were flexible and kind as we made a few small adjustments to where the tent would be set up. It did in fact downpour at our reception, but we had the time of our lives, and the tent was PERFECT for protecting us from the elements! When the crew came to break down, the yard was a disaster with ankle-deep mud, but I never heard one peep of a complaint from them - they instead told me how happy they were that we had a great time despite the weather. Their positive attitudes, given the task ahead of them (hours of break down in the mud), were really and truly appreciated. Overall, we were thrilled with everything about Distinctive. Thanks again for being such a big part of our wedding day and helping everything come together so well!!

We cannot believe how satisfied we are with Distinctive Event Rentals. We rented the scuba chair covers for our wedding at CNU and they really made the reception ballroom look beautiful and modern along with the lighting. Our point of contact at Distinctive was Alison McPherson and she by far made our experience with Distinctive painless. She was very professional, timely, and pleasant to speak with via email and phone. Their operations were extremely flexible for our wedding time frame, as well. We made adjustments to our contract numerous times (due to the change in the amount of guests coming to the wedding) and we did not encounter any issues asking for those changes. To top it off, we did not have to be present at CNU for the crew to drop off or pick up our rental equipment, which made scheduling around the wedding easier. We will absolutely recommend Distinctive Event Rentals to anyone who is having a wedding in the Williamsburg-Norfolk area.

Distinctive Event Rentals was a tremendous help in the planning and execution of our daughter's wedding two weeks ago. Norma Freesmeier was a good ear, a problem solver, and great sage of advice. The company delivered their products to us in great condition and made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it for the reception. Everyone I talked to at the company was polite and professional. I cannot recommend them highly enough. When my next child gets married, I will use them again.

Distinctive Event Rentals has amazing customer service and offers great value. Norma worked with us throughout the entire process, offering up common sense advice and making sure we had everything squared away. Their rental system is great because it allows you to make the necessary changes based on the needs for your event. We made changes to our order 36 hours before the order went out for delivery and everything worked out great. Also, Bill, the owner is a great guy. He genuinely wants the customer's experience to be great.

Distinctive Event Rentals was top notch from the awesome event specialist Laura, to the ground crew and everyone in between! As a mother of the bride who had to plan this event many miles from home they were extremely helpful to both myself and my daughter! They were always flexible with work schedules, helpful in making suggestions and keeping cost in line with the event, they even took the time to meet me and my daughter at the venue! The ground crews were equally as impressive, timely, professional and set my mind at ease. I highly recommend this company to anyone planning an event! I do not often take the time to write reviews, but they deserve high praise from helping to make my daughter's wedding a big success!!!

We couldn't be happier with the service Distinctive Event Rentals provided. Our wedding was 100 times better than we ever expected. They pay close, thoughtful attention to every detail and the equipment is high-quality. Everything from our tent, chandeliers, linens and chairs were beautiful. Distinctive is responsive, flexible and reliable. We highly recommend using their services and equipment.

I was the caterer for this wedding's rehearsal dinner; I came with the customer to Distintive's showroom; we dealt with Norma; she took time with us to set tables until the customer had picked out everything they needed. She took time to let the customer decide and gave many options to choose from. The Family Life Center was transformed into a beautiful dining hall. We have used this rental company for many events in the past and would highly recommend them and will use them in the future.

The thing we loved about Distinctive was that we could get it ALL in one place. No running around for different items from numerous places. They were great about suggesting little things that add just the touch, but also clueing us in on easy ways to stay in the budget. We toured their huge (and still expanding) facility, where linens, tables, chairs, dishes, and silver were perfectly organized and well cared for. The staff were all quite friendly and clearly love doing a good job.
We were so glad to have the flooring and tent all set up slightly ahead of schedule--it was that August Saturday when we got buckets more rain than predicted. It was perfect inside the tent, and with a well working sound system we could all be heard just fine above the pitter-patters. Distinctive made it a day full of happy memories.

I worked with Norma at Distinctive to choose our rentals and she was great. I was a little overwhelmed by the all of the details that I had to choose to pull our reception look together but she made the process fun and easy. We literally had to rent everything for our reception (china, silver, glassware, stemware, salt and pepper shakers, etc) and we were able to get the look we wanted as Distinctive had the best selection to choose from and the best prices (I did a lot of research before choosing who to go with). They are also very connected within the Virginia/NC wedding industry which made setting up all of the logistics very easy which was important since we did not use a wedding coordinator.

This company is wonderful. Used them for my daughter's wedding in our backyard and we couldn't have been happier with the result. The owner came out and made recommendations and was more concerned with the comfort of our guest then making a sale. His staff that came out to put up the tent, table, & chairs were top notch. Very easy to work with, courteous and professional. They came very highly recommended by the caterers we used as well as some of the other vendors. I will only use Distinctive Event Rentals when I have another entertaining event. Thanks to all of their staff for making this special occasion carefree.

We used Distinctive for our October 2012 wedding. We rented a dance floor, table linens, cake stand, and trash cans. They delivered the day before the wedding and picked everything up on Monday. They do offer Sunday pickup for an extra fee which was not bad considering it is their day off. I called many times to add things and take things away but they never got frustrated with me and were very helpful! In the end, they actually owed me money (because I ended up not needing a couple things) and I received my refund check fairly quickly.

We recently had an event for 150 people on the water in Dare County North Carolina. Distivctive Rentals of Chesapeake provided us with a Clear Top Tent, stand up tables and large round tables with chairs. They also provided us with a stage and sound equipment. We also rented glasses, table cloths and ties.

The staff at Distinctive Rentals helped us with the selection process and the President of the Company came to the site to be sure the approporiate tent was being used and that additional marquee tents would be sufficient to provide protection from inclement weather.

The professionals at Distinctive Rentals could not have been more helpfu. We received so many wonderful comments on the decor and the tent which was spectacular even though the weather was not cooperating. Holding an event for 150+ people is not easy, but in our case, it was made a lot easier by the professionalism, thoughtfulness and attention to detail we received from Laura and Bill at Distinctive Rentals. We will use them again.

The staff at Distinctive Rentals helped us with the selection process and the President of the Company came to the site to be sure the approporiate tent was being used and that additional marquee tents would be sufficient to provide protection from inclement weather.

The professionals at Distinctive Rentals could not have been more helpfu. We received so many wonderful comments on the decor and the tent which was spectacular even though the weather was not cooperating. Holding an event for 150+ people is not easy, but in our case, it was made a lot easier by the professionalism, thoughtfulness and attention to detail we received from Laura and Bill at Distinctive Rentals. We will use them again.

I had my whole wedding planned when I met the representatives from Distinctive Events at a bridal show in Norfolk, VA. I even had contracts for furnsihings with another company. After meeting Norma, I changed my mind on everything. I had a new vision and Distinctive Events had everything I needed. I went to the showroom and could put my hands on EVERYTHING I NEEDED. They even let me walk through the warehouse and that is where I found more ideas. Norma was very helpful by giving me her input and suggestions on how to use things to help my vision. We instantly formed a bond. She was very flexible in constructing my contract that I could add, delete, change, make payments and everything. I thought I was bothering her with all my questions, adds and deletes but everytime I called she was just as willing to help as the day I met her. She even called me a few times just to make sure everything was going well and that I had everything I needed. The day before the wedding, when everything was delivered, the delivery guys were so helpful. They came during reheresal and I was impressed with their willingness to go the extra mile to help. The day of, the owner, Bill came all the way to the site just to give his stamp of approval and to ensure I got everything I needed. They even sent a few extras, just in case. Now thats commitment to make sure the BRIDE is SATISIFED. I appreciate DISTINCTIVE EVENTS.

I was very particular about my tent and decor for our wedding at The Williamsburg Inn a few weekends ago, but everything from Distinctive Event Rentals worked out perfectly! They were so flexible and friendly to work with, and their clear top tent and extra large chandeliers were some of the most talked about elements of the day. Highly recommended!

From the first phone call DER was an the ball. I had no idea what I wanted or needed and they helped me through every step. The tent size, number of tables and chairs (the white "wood look" resin chairs are sturdy and beautiful) to the table settings. They made suggestions as to what what we could do and how to put in inexpensive special touches. Not one item was overlooked - no thanks to me, the clueless bride. The 15" market umbrella and the tent chandelier were the talk of all the guests. When I called to add rain contingencies 3 weeks before the wedding, they called back with a more cost effective plan. These folks came when the said they would, with courteous and professional staff, and the job was done right. The sales, in house staff and site crews were all easy to work with. The site crew even made changes on the spot to make the "look and feel" of the space more appealing. Would never call another rental place!

Distinctive Event Rentals was 5 star all the way. They were recommended from a friend that had used them in the past. We booked almost a year in advance, just to be sure we got the tent we wanted. They were very helpful in all aspects from the size tent we would need - to the last minute changes we needed to make. The workers arrived to set the tent up on time, set up the tables for us, and made sure everything was working properly before leaving. We would absolutely use them again if we ever needed rentals for another occasion. Highly recommend them.

Linens were meticulously maintained. Also, they were extremely competitive in price and had a much better selection than any other vendor in HR we talked to.

Distinctive Event Rentals was great to work with. I visited the showroom beforehand and really appreciated how everything was laid out so you could really see it. They even took us in the back to view parts of the gazebo that I planned to rent.

I rented tall silver vases for my wedding, linens, chiavari chairs, and a wrought iron arbor. Overall I was very please with the quality of everything, except one of the vases leaned in its base, and couldn't be set straight. I paid extra to have the items delivered within a two hour time window, and they came within that time frame. I didn't expect it to take quite so long for the guys to set up the gazebo (over an hour) and that put us behind a bit schedule since we were draping it with fabric. Otherwise the finished product looked great, and the decor adding a lot to my wedding and reception.

Overall, Distinctive Event Rentals is a wonderful company to work with! Norma helped us from day one! She was very knowledgeable about what was necessary at a wedding and offered great suggestions for items we may have forgotten. She was very accommodating through all of the contract revisions, up until 3 days prior to the event. The only issue we encountered was resolved by them without a single complaint from me! The delivery men were prompt and helpful. They went out of their way to help us with set-up challenges that didn't even have anything to do with their delivery items. As I said, the only issue we encountered was poor quality lanterns. One of them was hot glued together at the top and half of them had broken/missing glass panels in the sides. While I was pretty upset at delivery, we put the poor quality lanterns in dimly lit areas and went on with the day. Within days of the wedding, I was contacted by Distinctive Event Rentals and somehow they had heard about the lanterns and informed me a refund check for the cost of the lanterns was on its way. Great customer service and products overall!!

I love Norma! She was such a great representative for Distinctive. I was the most wishy washy bride when it came to my linens, but she stood by me each and every time I changed my mind. In the end, I decided that I would have to spend a little more money to get the look I wanted, and boy did I get it! My tables looked so amazing. I was very happy with everything distinctive rented to us. The columns are probably the best deal in that whole warehouse- with them, my ceremony was stunning. If you want professional service and a team that will truly work with you, hire this company. Believe me, they wont rest until you are finally happy with your choices.

Everyone at distinctive events was so helpful! Norma worked through everything with me. My wedding was in the middle of nowhere and we catered it ourselves, so we needed everything from chairs and table to chafing dishes, dance floors, and trash cans. I changed my mind and changed the order tons of times and each time Norma went over it to make sure I didn't forget a linen, and she did her best to maximize the efficiency of my order. Then they drove all the stuff up to Mathews county and dropped it off at the location, they offered to set up all of the tables and the dance floor for me, but I wasn't even sure where I wanted everything to go. I appreciated how willing they were to help me. They helped make my wedding wonderful!

Distinctive was professional and on time with their delivery. They were missing a few things we ordered but did deliver them Saturday morning before the wedding. The tent with liner was beautiful. The linens were sort of crazy labeled and one would think there would be a better way of labeling/organizing them but maybe not. Our points of contact at the office were responsive and friendly. Our experience was pleasant and I'd recommend them again.

I rented tables, chairs, and a dance floor. The tables and chairs were great. The dance floor was not put together properly, and we had to take part of it apart and put it back together. For the amount we spent on the floor, I felt it should have been put together with a little more care and not have the edges all coming off. The girls in the office that we scheduled with were excellent. However the guys dropping off the equipment, not so much. I heard them complain on multiple occasions about having to go the the second floor of the house and that it should have an elevator. It was nice having someone drop everything off and pick it up.

Distinctive came in the rain to put together our tent! The guys were very nice and patient with us because another vendor was running behind and they couldn't start until the other finished. The tent, chairs, tables, and linens were all in good conditon. It's also very nice that they allow you to add to your order right up until the last minute. They did forget our trash cans and had to bring them later that day. The tent held up through a horrible storm that night. Everything was going great until time to pick-up. They could not come pick up the supplies until the Monday after my Saturday wedding. They were supposed to come in the morning. By noon they still were not there so I called and was told they were on their way. We left at 5:00pm and they STILL HAD NOT COME!! I'm assuming they picked up everything because we did not get an additional bill but we could not stay any longer. A little ridiculous!

While attempting to figure out what I wanted, a lady was nice enough to give me as sample to take home. I called back and told them I like the scuba chair covers. On the day before my wedding they delivered the wrong ones. They refused to come and pick them up so my bridesmaid had to drive 40 min to p/u. They also did not raise the poor and despite to the hieght needed so, my fiance had to raise it all by himself.
