I have mixed feelings about Select Event. First off, their prices are quite high. When we were discussing chair rentals or chair cover rentals, I discovered that I could purchase chair covers and sashes for half of the prices of rental and rent chairs from other companies for about half the price.

That said, Shari and her team were always prompt and responsive.

I was disappointed however, that when we received the table linens, that they were mismatched-- not entirely differenct colors, but different shades of the same color. I called to ask for replacements, which they sent out, but those replacements were entirely a different color. in the end we decided that under dimmed lights and with all the decorations on the table, that the color issues was not noticable. However, it's suprising that a company charging premium prices would not have premium service.

This was the only vendor that the Odyssey ship uses. I was made aware by the wedding planner that the chair covers did NOT fit the the ship's chairs which then delayed the set up of the wedding. The wedding planner, with the help of the ship's crew, had to re-do all of the chair covers by folding them inward so that it would not look sloppy. I am dissappointed by this. There needs to be better communication between Select Rentals and the Odyssey to provide the correct chair covers so that the set up time is not prolonged uneccessarily.

I love Select Event Rentals!!! I used them for my wedding and everything was beyond perfect. I worked with Mary Beth and Shari, and they both were so incredibly helpful when choosing my tablecloths, chairs, etc. They even gave me some great ideas on how to save money but still have the reception room look fabulous! All the other rental places I looked into just seemed like they wanted to get money from you no matter what and could care less about your wedding, but Select really cared and it showed! Both Mary Beth and Shari were so quick on responding to my emails and picking out my rentals with them was a breeze! No stress at all. Thanks again Select!!!

We only worked with Select for part of the rentals, and our planner handled the rest. We visited Select (in Baltimore) to look over linen options with our wedding planner. Susan was very accommodating and helpful. Later in the process, we visited again with our caterer to select dishes and flatware for our reception. Susan was again friendly. Later, when it was time to pay for other rentals (Chairs, etc), Susan was VERY helpful over the phone collecting payment, even after my card was declined (daily spending limits - ARGH!). We got it worked out quickly and efficiently (and patiently!). Very easy vendor to work with! (For clarity - we worked with the Baltimore office for our wedding!)

I used Select Event Rentals for my dance floor and renting gold chivari chairs for the reception. I dealt with Susan during the whole planning process. She was great. She was extremely quick to respond and answered all of my questions. There were no issues with delivery or pick up. Everything went smoothly. The chairs looked great and the dance floor turned out nicely as well. I would definitely use them again.

Select was recommended to me by my caterer (Carlotta Botvin at Good Tydings). I dealt with Shari who provided excellent expertise and attention to my needs. I rented linens and hurricane globes through Select for my wedding and my sister rented a punch bowl, martini glasses, and chairs for my bridal shower. Both experiences with Shari were great. I must have called her about 10 times to discuss the hurricane rentals (we originally needed more than they had available) and every time Shari was professional and very helpful. Their showroom is a little small, but the linen samples and example table setups are very inventive and beautiful. Shari made some great recommendations to my mother and I when we first met with her, and since she had a long time professional relationship with my caterer, the behind the scenes organization went so smoothly.

We really liked the chairs that we got from Select Event Rentals. I spoke with Ramona several times and she was always very helpful. She helped me to choose the best cover for the chiavari chairs we wanted. The only possible problem would be if your venue will not allow delivery and pick-up to be on weekdays because they charge a couple hundred dollars to deliver and pick-up on the weekend.

Select was hired to provide all of the rentals for our at-home wedding, from the tent and flooring to the tables and chairs. They didn't always get back to us right away and we had to follow up with them a few times, and also ask questions a few times before they were answered. The biggest problem we had was with the delivery staff. They were extremely late and made us late for our rehearsal dinner, ruined parts of the lawn and dirtied a lot of our rentals by dumping them on the driveway and lawn, and didn't follow directions. However, once I called the office, they were quick to communicate to the staff and get things in order. They were also extremely flexible and saved the day by getting us tent walls the morning of the wedding. We were extremely appreciative of that. We would recommend them, but be sure to stay on-top of the delivery staff and keep yourself organized as well; don't take anything for granted.

I used Select Events for chivari chair rentals and dish rentals for our wedding. All of the items were in great condition and as far as I know delivery and pick-up went smoothly. Everyone I talked to at Select (mostly Ramona and Shari) was very helpful and responsive, well organized and patient with changes to the order. They offered good suggestions and seemed to take a real interest in the event going well.
The delivery fees are high, especially for "after hours." However, I think the hotel could also have been more flexible with their pick up times. Overall this was one of the best and easiest vendors I worked with!

My husband and I chose Select Event Rentals because they were offering a promotion on Chiavari chairs for $5 per chair which was the lowest price I had seen from any local vendor. We paid our deposit for the chairs about five months before the wedding. At the time, the sales person (Shari Clark) made a point to tell me (and indicate on the invoice) that there was a $70 delivery fee and that I was responsible for having someone unbag the chairs when they arrived at the reception venue and rebag the chairs prior to pickup. Shari indicated that there would be an additional charge if they had to do the unbagging and/or bagging. I did not have an issue with these terms since we had plenty of time to coordinate with the reception venue staff and our day-of wedding coordinator.

Our issue with Select Event Rentals happened about a month before the wedding when we started finalizing the details of the wedding day with the various vendors. Our invoice indicated that the rental was for one day (not one business day) and that the “date out” for the chairs was the day before our wedding. My impression was that they would drop off the chairs on the day before the wedding or the morning of the wedding and pick them back up after the reception was over since the rental was for “one day”. Upon discussing this with Select Event Rentals, Shari advised me that there would be an additional delivery fee of $280 (on top of the $70 delivery fee we previously agreed to) if they had to pick up the chairs anytime before noon on Monday. This additional “weekend” pickup fee was never discussed by Shari at the time we paid the deposit nor was it clear from the invoice we received. Despite my annoyance at the poor customer service and outrageous last minute fee, we were essentially obligated to use them because our June wedding was less than a month away and we did not have time to search for another vendor that had the desired product in stock during the peak of wedding season.

The company did offer a slight discount in an attempt to make up for their unethical business practices but the chairs still cost us 25% more than we were expecting and we would not recommend this vendor to anyone. Ultimately their low price wasn’t worth the headaches that the Select Event Rentals caused me, my husband, and the staff at our reception venue.

I rented linens from this company. Ramona really listened to me and showed me linens in my price range. She also has a good eye for what goes together. I almost got there napkin rings but at the last minute I didn't get it.

I started off with copper sheer and copper linens. Ramona let me borrow them so I can see what they look like at my venue. I ended up changing my colors and Ramona made it so easy to change.

I really like their vast selection and it was half-off in March - can't beat that!
The only thing I would say about cost is that if it were full price they are about $24-30 for each linen. This is probably comparable to other places but I couldn't spend that much for linens. Also, they have a hefty delivery fee of $70 and it only includes dropping off the linens and picking them up.

I had an appointment to go through their show room in Laurel and pick out all the linens, plates, glasswear etc. and the staff there (Ramona) was really great to work with and showed us so many options and ideas. They were also very flexible with adding rentals last minute as we adjusted our set up. Really fun and nonstressful experience.

I absolutely loved using Select Event Rentals for my china and linen rentals for my wedding reception. They can be on the expensive side so make sure you ask if they are having any specials when you make your reservation. When we asked they ended up giving us 50% off our linen rental as long as we paid 1/2 of the total cost upfront. It reduced the cost by a ton! Totally worth it!

The delivery was late and the staff didn't seem to be in hurry to make up time. Yes everything looked good finally. But the feeling of nonchalantness left a bitter taste.

The people at Select Event Rentals near Roland Park really were extremely helpful and very flexible....I am not able to visualize large tablecloths from a 6x6 swatch...so the lady offered to allow us to take one tablecloth of each one we were looking at using for a day to our venue to see how they look larger and in real life....it was soooo helpful and we went with them for the higher end tablecloths we were using...they were wonderful.

I rented chavari chairs, goblets, and chargers from Select Events.

Select Event Rentals was a dream to work with. I dealt with their sales person Loren Lippman for a year before the wedding and she is so very sweet and ALWAYS willing to help and go above and beyond to help with things that may not even concern her. Loren helped me so much with planning the wedding. What I also loved about Loren is that it was never more than an hour before she would return my phone call or email I was amazed.

In addition select events had the best products and best prices around for the items I rented and were willing to work with me on everything. I was so pleased with everything. You have to be careful with rental companies because some will provide you with dented, scratched, or rusted items but NOT select events everything was like new and gorgeous.

I will recommend select events to every bride

I would say that my most disappointing vendor was probably this one. The others were remarkably good and I was very happy with.... My reason for being less content with Select Rentals was that despite reserving in advance the napkins and chairs we wanted (and other items), I was non-challantly informed only 2 weeks before my wedding that they wouldn't have enough of either of these two things for us. I was pretty upset about this since we'd planned essentially our entire aesthetic around the chairs. In the end, they rented us the chairs from another vendor to make up for their mistake, and we had some un-noticeable napkins instead. It was okay, but I felt the service for most of the time was pretty "underwhelming" and uninformed. They did fix the chair fiasco, but I wouldn't recommend this to any of my friends. I would think you could find a better place.

I used linen and a riser from Select Rentals. They had alot of colors and designs to choose from. Sheree is very professional, I enjoyed working with her. However, I did have a mishap with them that almost caused a serious problem. The day before the wedding Select was suppose to deliver linen and the riser to the reception venue. The venue had two locations, before Select went to the venue they confirmed with me the location of the venue. However, Select went to the wrong venue plus, the venue they were suppose to go to was an hour away and the venue was about to close for the day. I didnt know about this until after the wedding, thanks to my husband and wedding planner. The next day Select arrived early to the reception venue and everything went perfect!

We rented chairs for our wedding ceremony. The price was comparable to most other rental companies, but not any less. We were most shocked by the setup and takedown fees, which were $1.50 per chair each. We ended up finding people to set up and take down the chairs on our own. Also, the delivery was almost an hour late, which ended up delaying the ceremony. They did credit us for the delivery fee after we expressed our disatisfaction with the delay.

Overall, I was extremely pleased with the results- all of our rentals looked absolutely stunning. But, dealing with this company is a real hassle and shows you bureaucracy at its worst! Everyone has a different department and may not communicate with anyone else about non-department related issues. This resulted in a lot of confusion between the delivery people and I found their workers to be very rude. They ordered me around a lot, which I did not appreciate. On the plus side, their account people are very nice and their new business development person is extremely creative and can help you create a unique look for your reception.

I worked with Ramona in the Mclean store. She was great in helping me figure out and get samples of what would work best with our decor and our budget. She came up with a great idea that combined coordinating linens for our sweetheart table and the guest tables while staying in budget--which was not large at all!

I had a very mixed experience with Select Rentals. On one hand, they went out of their way to assist me with a last minute fiasco at the reception site. The cost of the linens, however, was really steep. I would recommend them for their service, but not for their prices.

I rented chairs, table linens and napkins from Select and was incredibly happy with the value and service. I will call them again for my next event for sure. Select did call me a few months after I placed my inital order to tell me that the table linen that I had chosen was no longer available. At first, I was really upset but when I went to the shop to pick new linen Susan explained that something was wrong with the fabric and that the linen was changing color (it was a shimmery toffee with a blue undertint) and would arrive at my wedding looking more seafoam green than toffee!! That would have been just awful and not at all right with our rich fall colored theme. I am thankful to her for being honest, for knowing her product so well and for being so customer service oriented. Thanks Select!

Very flexible with pick up and delivery. I had inconsistent experience with service. I went into their showroom twice and was either ignored or treated in a very dismissive manner. I called their 800 number and the service was excellent. I was a dissappointed with the quality, as many of the white chairs I rented had rust on the backs that were pretty obvious. It might be the nature of metal chairs; however, had I known that, I would have sucked up the cost and rented wooden ones.
