FDS Tents worked very well with our venue, Prince Michel Vineyard. Lorena Kush was very responsive and provided excellent insight on the amount of tables and seating that would fit under our tent. FDS set up their tent early in the week to avoid the rain; this was a very nice touch to their service. However, one issue that we wish FDS would have provided more insight into was the use of heaters. The temperature in the evening definitely called for them, yet FDS didn't proactively recommend them. We trusted their expertise and experience in this situation and it didn't work out for us. Luckily, we got through dinner quickly, and our guests were able to get to the dance floor inside. All in all, FDS Tents is a great value compared to their competitors and we recommend them. Just remember to talk about the TEMPERATURE not just the weather!

Since our reception was outdoors, we needed tents. FDS was recommended to us by our venue, and we didn't think much of using them. We quickly discovered, however, that our vision for our reception was one that had never been attempted before at this venue! More than that, it was one that no one really knew how to do, because it hadn't really been attempted anywhere anyone involved had seen! While for most tent companies this might be an opportunity to try to convince us that our vision is too hard, too unreasonable, and needed to change, this was not the case with FDS. Instead, they set right to work trying to figure out how they could make our reception work the way we wanted it to. The result was better than we even imagined. The tents were gorgeous, and perfectly set up. Everyone complimented us on our set-up, and it wouldn't have been possible without the diligent work of Tom at FDS Tents. If you need a tent at your event, I couldn't recommend them strongly enough.

FDS was going through some changes in their office management when I worked with them, so they lost my paperwork a couple times, but they were very apologetic and worked with me to straighten everything out. The tent they put up (while crazily expensive, but I think every tent is crazily expensive) was gorgeous. Warning: any tent company will try to sell you on all kinds of fancy lighting. I had twinkle lights around the edge, twinkle lights on the center pole and on swags and that was all I needed. Everything was very bright and warm. FDS came on time to set up and came on time to break down, as well.
