Event Central was wonderful to deal with as far as wedding rental items. Even Central supplied us with a dance floor, a tent, linens, pipe and drape, and numerous other items. Along the way we made many changes. Each time we did, Channon, our Event Central representative, was professional and gracious. Ultimately, Event Central was instrumental in creating a beautiful wedding for my daughter.

Scott Schultz, Andy Mattrick and the entire Event Central team did an amazing job with our wedding. They were so attentive and helped us through the entire process. I am a very visual person and their warehouse is set up to help you envision your reception. They have tents, tables, lighting, linens, glassware, place settings, decor, etc. We took full advantage of all of their services.

Event Central works directly with caterers, because they don't always have their own linens, silverware or place settings and they will outsource to Event Central. Save yourself the trouble of paying more than you should and go directly through Event Central! They will walk you through every step.

One thing I was very happy about was, I was unaware of how many tables my caterer would need...on the day of our wedding, we were short 3 table linens. Event Central took care of everything and made sure we had linens prior to the start of the ceremony. Their customer service was so awesome that I didn't even know this happened until after the wedding. It was just taken care of. That's certainly what you should look for in vendors.

Andy Mattrick not only handles all things marketing, but is also a graphic designer. He designed a new tent for Event Central and we were the first to use it with the Sunburst end caps. Our tent was 50' long by 75' wide - we had 162 people and there was plenty of breathing room! Perfect for an outdoor wedding.

I was hoping to be able to post a photo of the tent on my review, but there's one on our photographer's website. Check out the Wednesday, August 1, 2012 Adam and Samantha post on Brittney Kreider's Photography blog. P.S. She and her husband are amazing photographers. Look for my review of them online as well!

I highly recommend Event Central to anyone planning a wedding, corporate event, or personal event. They can handle it all!

I have worked with Event Central for over 20 years. As a caterer who is a perfectionist in quality and service in my business, working with Event Central is a great partnership. They are always on time, the tents, dishes, flatware, glassware, chairs....all of the rentals, are pristine. It is nice to know that they also update their equipment and we have many choices instead of just one style of an item. And they go out of their way to provide the best service possible, even setting up an after hours pick up. Their staff is pleasant and aims to keep the client satisfied!

Event Central did a fantastic job with our event. When I stopped by EC for a consultation with Scott Schultz, we actually held the meeting back in the warehouse where everything was stored - they had a special space set up with sample wedding settings. I was so impressed with how CLEAN everything was, and that other rental companies actually send their tents to EC to have them cleaned, because they have special machines. Scott took the time to make sure we had everything we needed covered.

After our consultation, Scott very quickly put together a quote and requested to join us on our site visit so he could make sure everything would go well. Unfortunately, he had to deal with a VERY curmudgeony site owner and the space for the tent which was smaller than we had anticipated. Scott rolled with the punches, got right down to problem solving and worked with my wedding coordinator to find a solution. Within a couple days he had an entirely new quote put together to accommodate the changes (and the grouchy site owner).

Scott was very responsive to all of my inquiries and requests throughout the process and everything looked GREAT the day of the wedding. I couldn't have asked for better service from a rental company.

Event Central was amazing. We got all our rentals from them- tents, tables, chairs for ceremony and reception, dance floor, and sound system. The sound system was a late addition, but when we dropped by their office, the young lady at the desk was so nice and helped us choose the right sound system by allowing us to go back into the warehouse so my husband could check each one before we made a decision. They set the tents up at my parents' house two days before the wedding, and were very professional while setting up. Great rental company!

They were great, I wanted to rent circular mirrors for my reception tables, but didn't want to spend the money to buy them. They were much less than I could have rented or purchased anywhere else, and they were great in that I was able to pick them up on Friday and return it on Monday without being charged for all those days, they only charged for one!!! Highly recommend them for any rentals you might need!!!

Could not have put my wedding together without Event Central. They had the largest selection of items, from the tent to the sound system to the serving spoons. For a DIY, self-catered affair like ours, it was a huge relief to rent everything from one place (you'll pay a bit more for the convenience but we considered it well worth the cost). Channon kept in touch throughout the process and cheerfully accommodated all my changes -- very professionally handled.

We rented chavari chairs from this vendor. They were super easy to work with .. they delivered the chairs Friday afternoon, which gave us time to set them up for Saturday. I gave 3 stars for value because we had to unpack the chairs friday and then after the wedding we had to repack them so they could be picked up Saturday. If a reasonable price was given for this service I am sure we would have done that instead.

everything was great, I just felt that returning everything Monday morning was a little early and we also received 2 broken glasses when we go our order before even opening anything. but other than that it really made our wedding special.

Overall I was very pleased with my rental from Event Central. Several months ago I placed an order for both chairs and tables for my wedding. A week before the wedding, I discovered that I ordered the wrong size of tables. Due to the late notice, Event Central was not able to provide the new size of table that I needed. I asked to cancel the table portion of my rental, and Ms. Fike informed me that I would have to pay a cancellation fee because the wedding was only a week away. My mistake had me very flustered and desperate for a good solution, and Ms. Fike was kind enough to waive the cancellation fee and adapt my order to just chairs. In addition, she made sure that I received a refund to match the adjusted order, as my deposit for the original order was greater than the amount owed for the chairs alone. I am very thankful for Ms. Fike's understanding and flexibility.

In addition, my in laws had no trouble picking up or returning my chair rental. I'm pleased that they received quality customer service during both interactions with Event Central.

They were very flexible with my mom constantly thinking of something else we needed that was not on the list. Everybody there was very nice and easy to work with. The only problem we had was that there was a wedding there the day before that also rented from event central and apparently some confusion on what was whose and we ended up with dirty coffee cups, since the clean ones were picked up with the night before's stuff. Other than that, no problems.

Event Central Party and Tent Rental responded with the following comments:

I am sorry to hear of the problems with another caterer using our coffee cups. In researching our records, I found we did not have rentals any other caterers at the AACA the week in question. In calling Mike Patterson from AACA he confirmed there was a prior wedding and caterer who arranged their own dishware on the site during the weekend of this event. Since our rentals are clearly marked and placed in a specific holding area per the venue, it is hard to know how we ended up in such an awkward situation. But AACA and we are glad you brought it to our attention.

But we sure do appreciate your high marks for Professionalism, Flexibility and Responsiveness.
Sincerely, Scott W - Owner and Founder, EC

I had rented Chiavari chairs for my wedding. They were beautiful and in great condition! The staff were easy to work with since they were able to drop of the chairs and pick them up (no worries for me).The only thing I had a problem with was a hidden fee that I was unaware of. I had rented the exact amount of chairs for the number of people I had invited to the wedding. 50 people RSVP'd saying they weren't able to make it so naturally I called to cancel 50 chairs. I was charged a 50% cancellation fee that I was neither told about when I rented the chairs nor was it stated on the contract. The only place I found out about this was on the website and it is only mentioned once.

Deliver to "Capitol Dome" was excessive. I inquired with seven different rental companies and none was going to charge an additional fee to take items up an elevator to the dome. But this was the only company that had white padded chairs available.

Also, to charge an additional fee to drop off and pick up a small round table one block from the Capitol was embarrassing. I had to carry the table over, in my tux, on my wedding day. Just because it is a "wedding" doesn't mean items and deliveries should be significantly increased.

Once again, I asked four other rental companies about charging an additional fee to drop a table off a black away and none of them would have charged this.

Unfortunate.

U would only recommend this vendor if they cannot gather their needed items from another company.

Event Central Party and Tent Rental responded with the following comments:

Andrew, thank you for your review which allows us to understand the positive and/or negative experiences you had with Event Central. We recognize that the Capitol Rotunda is a difficult site to deliver to due to the security access, 2 sets of elevators, and the narrow hallways/stairs to maneuver around which can impact the overall cost of a rental.

In response to the table, I agree that we could have handled a drop off at a second location in close proximity and waived the delivery fee for one table. I will follow up with my staff to understand the situation and determine how we can better handle this in the future. Our pricing for wedding, corporate or homeowner events is the same for all and published in our price guide. The variables would be labor, delivery location, special orders, etc.

We greatly appreciate your feedback and high remarks. Understanding your experience with our company will help us to keep doing what we are doing well and improve the things that need improvement.

-Scott Schultz, Vice President

Event Central has great quality products for very reasonable prices. They also carry most everything you would need for a wedding - one-stop shopping. The have a great damage waiver plan that is very helpful for those accidental breakages during dinner and such. My only complaint with Event Central was with their communication. My consultant was very responsive when I was getting initial information and setting up my order, but after that, she was VERY slow to respond to my e-mails if she answered them at all. A couple of times I had to call in to get my questions answered because she hadn't answered my e-mail after a week. Also, the contract I signed when I came in to the store was somehow lost, so I had to fill out another one just before the wedding. In the end, though, it all went well; we had no issues at all with the rentals on or after the wedding day itself.

At first, Event Central seemed like a wonderful and reliable company to work with. I rented 90 wooden chairs for my wedding ceremony that took place in a state park. Because the park had strict rules about leaving things unattending overnight, we were forced to pay Event Central an extra $40 to drop off and pick-up at specific times. The day of my wedding came and Event Central showed up on time to deliver and set-up the chairs. The aunt was in charge of the ceremony site while I got dressed and she said they were easy to work with and they did everything as promised. Before they left they said they would return at 4:30 (their paid scheduled time) to pick-up the chairs. It ended up raining during our wedding ceremony, so everything was rushed. We ended up being about 45 minutes ahead of schedule but my aunt said she would wait at the park until 4:30, so they could pick up the chairs. They waited, in the rain, until 5:30 pm - they never showed up to get the chairs. My aunt missed two hours of our wedding reception because she was waiting for them. She said she called and called. She called the afterhours phone number and no one answered. She finally left. My family went to the park the next afternoon and the chairs had been pick-up by then, luckily, by Event Central and not the park service. It was quite frustrating that I paid an extra fee to make sure they were taken care of and this business couldn't even be bothered to answer their phone. Totally unprofessional. Too bad they are the only legitimate event rental company in the area or someone could put them out of business.

Event Central Party and Tent Rental responded with the following comments:

Kori, I would first like to thank you for your review. Any feedback, negative or positive is extremely important for the growth of the company. I apologize for your unpleasant experience with us. We pride ourselves on meeting our customers expectations with each and every event. Unfortunately, we were unable to meet the pick-up time for the chairs that evening. Had we known that someone would be waiting on site we would have called to let you know we were running behind due to the weather. Our emergency line is on 24 hrs, 7 days a week which is our direct line of communication when the office is not open. We did not receive a call that evening from your aunt. Again, we greatly appreciate your feedback and hope you will give us the opportunity in the future to show you the service we pride ourselves on. Thank you.
