Rented chocolate fountain and punch fountain. They made it easy to pick up and drop off. However, make sure that you have the right chocolate for the fountain or it will not work.

I went into Ideal about a year before my wedding to look at chair covers. I talked to a woman who was not very friendly, but when I called later to reserve the chair covers everything was fine. A couple months before my wedding, my florist told me that some of the chair covers from Ideal did not fit the chairs at the Convention Center (where my reception was held) at a previous wedding she did. I called Ideal right away, but they assured me that they had the type of chair cover I needed. 3 weeks before the wedding, I received a call from Ideal saying that my chair covers were not going to fit the chairs at the Convention Center, and then stated that it was the CC's fault (even though I had called earlier to explain the chairs and confirm). Blake told me they could order in the right chair covers, but they were going to cost twice the amount I had originally been promised! I said no way, and luckily found another vendor to get me 375 chair covers that fit. I will say that Blake refunded my deposit, but overall I was not happy with the customer service or lack of helpfulness.

I rented chairs and linens from Ideal Wedding & Events for my daughter's wedding on June 2nd, 2012. We arranged to have chairs delivered and set-up at our outdoor location for the ceremony, and we also had chairs and linens delivered to our indoor location for the reception. The chairs that were delivered for the ceremony were a little dirty, but otherwise okay. The chairs that were delivered to the reception were also dirty, and the linens were stained. We were able to wipe down the chairs, but unfortunately there was not much we could do about the linens. I expressed my concerns to the Ideal wedding staff member that was setting up the chairs at the ceremony. He did not seem surprised at the quality, and explained that sometimes when Ideal Wedding & Events is overbooked, they rent from another company in order to fulfill all of the orders. We also had problems with some of the sizes of the linens, and as a result we were not able to use them. Luckily, the staff at the reception location was able to set us up with some table skirting that they had on hand.

I have been trying to reach Blake (manager) at Ideal Wedding & Events for the last several days. I have left numerous voicemails with the details of my experience and a request for a return call. So far, I have not heard back. At this point I am questioning if customer satisfaction is important to Blake and this company.

We rented a dance floor, and they did not give us all of the parts for it to be put together! When we informed them of this, they said it would take an hour to get the rest of the parts.....when in fact THEY NEVER HAD THEM. We ended up having to RETURN the floor, and find a new one THE DAY OF OUR CEREMONY! The associate was rude, and unprofessional in dealing with THEIR mistake!

Ideal Wedding & Events responded with the following comments:

This was a very big oversight on our part. The floor size was bigger than we owned. We had to outsource for the rest of it and they shorted us the trim pieces. We learned a very valuable lesson on this and we are very sorry for the mix up. Hopefully we were able to make things as right as possible. We have taken this floor out of our inventory.

The clerks were not very friendly and seemed to not be very educated on their own product. They were not very efficient or timely in bringing our products to the front, as well as writing out their order sheets. The items we did rent; however, were very pretty and worked out quite well.

Stellar performance in tent construction in a difficult location! Perfect execution of a complicated event! Blake and his crew were flexible and went above and beyond on numerous occasions to make our daughter's wedding flawless. The dance floor was the perfect size, the delivery of all items was timely, the chairs for the wedding were set up at the last minute in a new location and Ideal Wedding made it work.

They did countless things behind the scenes to make sure everything was smooth and easy for our guests. The gold chairs and ivory linens made the tent look like a lovely summer party. Blake hung grid work from the ceiling of our tent which made attaching 100's of paper lanterns super easy. When wild weather came through and disturbed the chairs and lanterns, Blake personally cleaned everything up and put us on track to get everything back in place. Blake made sure our tent did NOT budge from its moorings by bringing in concrete barricades, so we could have the tent in a parking lot.

It just seemed that whatever we wanted, Blake made happen. He offered valuable insight into event planning and was fair and honest throughout the whole process. I would hire him again for any party where I wanted to be sure that things were done well and without worry.

We ordered our plates, napkins & cups thru Ideal several weeks before the wedding. We had received our napkins & cups quite quickly but were told that on Friday (3 weeks before the wedding), the woman in charge of plates would be in - she would sort thru her shipment at this time. On Monday, I had not received a phone call stating my plates were in, so I waited another week. Then, on Monday again, when I had not received a phone call, I went in to the store. I found out that my plates had been paid for, by never ordered. The clerk was very helpful & was able to order my plates & have them available the next day. I would struggle wtih recommending Ideal to those around me.

Overall Ideal was great. We ordered chairs from them.

The only problem came when they were to deliver them. My mom had asked if she could pay the remaining balance when they were delivered. The person said it was fine. The day before the wedding we got a call asking for payment before they could deliver the chairs. There was a miscommunication somewhere but it got settled and was no big deal.

The chairs were a great value at only $2.00 a piece. Cheapest anywhere in Sioux Falls. They made the hall look more festive and "wedding like." I'd use them for other events.
