Everything we ordered was perfect and really made our vision of the perfect wedding come to life. They even delivered an item we forgot 3 hours before the wedding (How's that for service?!!) You guys did an awesome job and thank you so much for making our special day even more special.

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.

I was very pleased with everything! Heidi and Krystal made things run smoothly which is
a real concern when you are not familiar with the area . Heidi is very creative with her flower designs. I did not see the room decorated until we walked in for the Rehearsal Dinner. It more than met my expectations.

Island Essentials was a fantastic company to work with. They handled every request I threw at them in stride and worked closely with me to ensure we had everything we needed for our wedding, but also that we were not paying for items that were not necessary. 5 stars all the way around.

This was the only vendor I was "required" to work with, and I couldn't be happier with them. I worked with Krystal in the months leading up to the wedding and she was very responsive and always willing to help me with changes and offer suggestions. I worked with Megan a little in the months leading up to my wedding, but she was my contact on the day of the wedding and she was awesome too! She helped me obtain items I didn't request until the morning of the wedding. They were both so flexible and helpful.

Delivery and set-up was very smooth. They have some great guys on their delivery team. I especially appreciated that the set-up crew put up a SOLID tent. There was a severe thunder storm watch the night of my wedding with gusts just over 30 mph (thank god no rain). That tent really got blown around, but it stayed solid.

Krystal and Megan were great. The set up team was awesome. They worked quickly and when we returned that evening from the rehersal dinner, all items were assembled and ready to go for the wedding the next morning. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure we were kept up to date on where things stood with the rental equipment and meeting our schedule.

Thank you guys for the professional service and the quality of the rental equipment was superior.

Krystal and the island essentials crew did a great job! Every rental item that we needed was quickly acquired even from other rental companies if IE didn't have it. Even a tent for our raining wedding was quickly arranged! All the equipment arrived at the venues right on time and was broken down on time. All emails were replied to very fast. All in all they made our wedding awesome!

We rented white benches for our ceremony out on the beach from these guys and they were beautiful, strong and very sturdy benches. They held a lot of people and the delivery crew was very nice. They worked very hard carrying those heavy things all the way down three flights of stairs after already going up three flights of stairs and set them up very nicley. Everyone at this place was very helpful. They are priced nicley as well.

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!

The tent and other rental items were perfect for our waterfront wedding. Krystal was super to work with - from the initial consultation, to the walk-through, to the day of the event. She even made a trip out to the event site the day of the wedding to bring additional items needed. Thanks for making our day so awesome!!

The only issue we had was the tables not being put in the right spot. I asked the people setting up if they had been told where things went, and they assured me they had. However, they clearly did not know the proposed layout. Otherwise, things went smoothly. Thank you.

They are toatlly affordable and doable, even if you are not the most creative person. awesome inspiration,He had really innovative ways to keep the guests involved in the festivities ,I can't write enough good things about his work, but I can say that if you want your guests to talk about your wedding for years to come then it needs to be invited .

Island Rentals was very helpful in our process and the bamboo arbor was just what we were looking for, beachy without being tacky. Quick to answer phone calls, only issue I had was they forgot several items when they picked up the rentals and I had to call twice to have them hauled away. Otherwise great service, they set up quickly and were very nice to work with.

Island Essentials notified me ahead of time that the sea grass I had order was not in good enough shape for me to use. They could have waiting until that day to realize that I had requested it, which would have left me scrabbling.
