I just needed a few things my venue didn't provide. They were easy to work with and everything was set up for me.

Our wedding was beautiful, but because of the effort from the bridal party setting up the items that they dropped off after paying the leisure prices. Twice the employees were rude to us on the phone, because they did not make the information clear to us and rudely assumed we knew what they wanted from us. The employees that traveled the equipment to us (that barely did what they were paid to do) were extremely rude to us and our family, took way too many smoke breaks while we were rushing to set up before (and during!) the rehearsals, were dressed inappropriately, and had already showed up hours late after we called 10 times to find out when they were coming finally (after we already notified them when our rehearsal was suppose to be). They also did not show up for clean up when the contract said they were going to, so we had to sit around at the house for 2 days waiting on them expecting for their arrival at any time. And they threw our personal items into a box as if they've already done us a good deed. They even expected my very apparently pregnant cousin to carry heavy items up two sets of stairs! We tried to be patient with them, and maybe it was just a rough week for them, but we paid a lot of money to them so we could have a great time for our wedding but instead it was extremely stressful. The materials they have are beautiful, just wish the employees were more helpful and more efficient with time and information.

Megan did such a wonderful job of coordinating our chair delivery for us - and all around Hurricane Arthur! My husband and I weren't worried about the hurricane disrupting our ceremony, since all the locals felt that it would blow through in plenty of time, even though we were getting married on the beach. It helped us to know days ahead of time that Megan already had a plan for how to make sure the chairs got to us in plenty of time without putting any of her workers at risk. I'm sure other brides have had to scramble at the last minute when forces of nature got in the way of their plan, but we were able to just sit back and relax throughout the storm knowing that no matter where our wedding ended up happening, we at least had all the chairs we needed to make our guests comfortable. She was willing to work with both us and Krystal, our amazing coordinator, to make sure our day ran smoothly. She was quick and easy to communicate with, and her friendliness put us right at ease.

Island Essentials worked with me to create exactly what I was envisioning for my rentals! I did not want a tent at all if the weather was nice and wanted to have lights hung over the reception space like a European cafe kind of look. Instead of setting up the full tent, two days before the reception they came and did only the square base and left off the peak and the top. It worked out perfectly! They were very patient and accommodating as we tried to figure out where we wanted everything and dropped off/picked up everything on schedule!

Island Essentials is a wonderful company. Their very pleasant employees arrived on time to deliver the chairs, tables, and audio equipment we rented. When they set-up the tables and chairs the way I asked, then I realized I wanted it another way, they volunteered to rearrange everything so I did not have to! All items I rented were exactly as they were described to me on the internet. Their prices are also very reasonable compared to other rental companies in the area. Highly recommend!

Everyone at Island Essentials made our wedding and absolute breeze when it came to the equipment rentals. From Megan to the guys who set it up they were all great! We rented our chairs, tables, linens, dance floor, tents, lights, and wine glasses through them. Everything was there on time and when it was all set up looked amazing. They truly cared to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted.
