We were not happy with any aspect of doing business with Event Essentials. Once we ordered and paid a deposit for an amplification system and other decorative items for a wedding, we explored adding chairs for an outdoor wedding as well. That revealed a series of hidden fees such as extra costs for delivering at a specific time versus a 6 hour window. There would have also been extra charges for late pick up after hours which was not revealed initially either. The cost to cancel any items you've reserved is dicey and comes at a high cost (your deposit PLUS the entire amount of items that would have been rented). We weren't sure we'd need the chairs dependent on weather and there was no option to cancel without penalty. We ended up renting the sound system only and ended up picking it up and dropping it off personally. The sound system worked, but it was beat up, buttons were broken, and a speaker stand needed to be altered to make it work. In the end we had music at our event, but the entire experience was frustrating.

Event Essentials responded with the following comments:

Hello Amy, Thank you for voicing your concerns. Your order came thru our online quoting system so delivery & special timed stop charges are not listed on there. The rental prices only are listed on our website. Delivery Times are arranged over the phone since there are many other questions that need to be asked due to the flexibility of the park venues. Unfortunately we do charge a cancellation fee on rental products that are cancelled within a short period of time of the out date. This time of year is very busy and we do our best to accommodate every request. If there are any other questions you have please feel free to reach out. Thank you

We used Event Essentials for a few items for our wedding, and to be honest the process to getting things set up and situated was not the best. They say that appointments are recommended but not absolutely necessary but when we attempted to stop by, no staff at all acknowledged us despite many walking by while we were there. I ended up submitting an online request for help/quote (due to being a bit farther from the area) and had questions and asked for recommendations on what we would need, etc, and that was completely ignored. We ended up not having the appropriate items ordered and it was our reception vendor that mentioned to us when we discussed what we had was not going to work - thankfully as it would have been disastrous. The chairs were OK - we had them for the head table only. I would not have wanted them for all guests due to scratches/scrapes and wear and tear that was visable.

Event Essentials was very accommodating and helped with everything I needed. I was unsure of what size tent I needed and they helped to make a floor plan and confirm that the size I was getting was just right. Everyone was very friendly and it all worked out perfectly!

I worked with this vendor this past weekend for my wedding and was overall quite disappointed in their services. They were the most difficult vendor to work with of any of our wedding vendors, and generally quite unhelpful to my group. Leading up to the wedding, it was very difficult to get in contact with them to clarify details regarding our rental items. They mixed up our account with another couple with a similar name. There were multiple emails that went unanswered requiring a lot of work in followup emails and phone calls. On the day before the wedding we had asked multiple times to establish a delivery window for the items, and were repeatedly given vague and unhelpful information. They were hours late in delivering the chairs for our ceremony, requiring a lot of rushing around to get them set up in time for our event. Overall, this was a disappointing experience and I wish I had chosen a different vendor for the items we had used.

We rented linens and decorations for our wedding this past May. Event Essentials and Korrine were absolutely wonderful. She helped me and guided me through the entire process, giving me ideas and helping me make the best decisions. They worked with our budget and made sure I got everything I wanted. My venue look wonderful and exactly how me and my husband had in mind. It was such a special day and we couldn't have made it without Event Essentials and Korrine. Thank you so much!!!

We received mismatched drapes for our pipe and drapes but went back to the vendor and they replaced them with matching ones. The arch was on the weak side for the rental price. It defiantly needs to be retired. Our event was indoors and we needed to wash the arch because it was dirty from a previous event. The man who helped load it said he filled the tops with foam so they hopefully will make it through another event....he mentions these break easy so don't be rough with the arch or we would buy it. We were gentle and did not have to buy it. Be careful wit the arches.
