We had a small wedding at our home and had to rent everything. That wasn't a problem with Bob Soucy and Special Events of New England! We had looked into other companies who were closer to our home, however, they were disorganized and not customer service oriented. As soon as I sent Bob a list of what we would need (or what I thought we'd need), he sent back a detailed quote right away. He continued to be responsive throughout the whole planning process, offering great advice and honest suggestions that made everything run smoothly. The rentals were delivered early and were well organized and clean. The crew that set up our tent and unloaded everything else was very friendly and left everything exactly where we had requested. We couldn't have been happier with our selection and we would recommend this company to anyone who needs event rentals.

With an outdoor reception venue, there was no question we would rent a tent for our June wedding. We were surprised to learn how expensive tent rentals would be, and looked into every vendor in the Massachusetts and New Hamsphire area to compare prices. Special Events of New England provided the best value, and we are incredible happy that this is the company we chose to work with. They were easy to work with, professional, and incredibly helpful. We worked with Robert Soucy, and he made himself available to answer all of our questions. Planning a wedding was a lot of fun, but there were a lot of details to cover! Bob provided tent layout ideas for us, made suggestions about tables, chairs, and linen needs (and provided these items for less than the caterer, or other vendors, could). It was nearly impossible for us to determine our specific needs when it came to square footage of the tent and such, but Bob helped us and was patient and honest throughout the process. The tent was set up three days in advance of our wedding, which gave us ample time to set up the tables and chairs (We elected to set them up ourselves. Special Events will set these up for you for a small price, but we had plenty of people to help us!). It was a big help to have the tent set up in advance, so we could focus our energy on other tasks, and enjoy our time with family and friends. The tent was absolutely beautiful, and the lights that were also arranged by Special Events made for a stunning and magical setting for our celebration. Many thanks!

We worked with this rental company for our wedding, and they were great. We got married at a summer camp so had to rent almost everything -- tent, tables, plates, lights, etc, etc, etc. It was a huge project. We worked with Bob Soucy, and he was responsive, knowledgeable, and organized. Basically you want a rental company that has what you want, has fair prices, and delivers your order on time and without any mistakes. We got just that.

Ordered my tent, lighting, tables, chairs, heating and restrooms from them. My tent arrived days before the big event which made setting up much easier and not rushed. The choices for tables, chairs, and linens was large. I would highly recommend them compared to others in the area.

Was very pleased with Special Events of New England. They provided our tent, tables, chairs and dinner rentals. Everything was great -they were efficient and fast and accomodating to our needs for having the tent installed on a certain day. I felt the quality of the products were high and we were not disappointed with our decision to use SE as our vendor.

I worked with Special Events of NE for my June 4, 2011 wedding. We rented a dance floor, tables, and chairs from them. They accommodated our needs even a couple days before delivery. They were quick to put together the dance floor and the tables and chairs were in good condition. Their delivery fee to my area was high but because their prices are reasonable, it was actually the best prices for the area! I highly recommend this company.

They did great. We had to rent everything... 60x40 tent, tables, chairs, linens, dishes, glasses, mugs etc. They were great at helping me figure out what I need, what would look good, what one thing cost vs another. They were always very patient with me playing around with different set ups etc. They have a lot of choices in linens which is one of the reasons I went with them in the first place. It was all simple stuff, but very nice, clean and good quality. Would definitely work with them again.

Bob Soucy and his crew at Special Events were wonderful to work with! Every time I emailed or called, Bob got back to me promptly-sometimes within a few minutes. 2 days before our wedding we decided we needed 100 more chairs and they were all over it! I would definitely recommend his company :)

We used Special Events of NE for our backyard reception and they were awesome! We rented everything from the tent to the silverware and they even coordinated/contracted our porta-johns. Their sailcloth tent was breathtaking and their prices were comparable to competitors in the area. We opted for Special Events because we wanted to deal with as few vendors as possible. I highly recommend using Special Events of NE for all of your wedding reception needs!

They set up our tent before we had even arrived, and were prompt in taking the rentals back and breaking down the tent at the end of the event. Everything was exactly as we had requested, and I had no problems in my dealings with them prior to the event, nor with the staff that did the clean up and break down. I'd recommend using Special Events of New England for your wedding rentals!!

We rented a big tent (60x90), along with chairs, tables, lighting, etc. Bob Soucy is very detail oriented and helpful. He gave me some breaks on the chair rentals, etc. He stayed late one day when my, my fiance (at that time) and my mother drove to New Hampshire to their showroom to look at the linen and chairs. He got back to me quickly and although they didn't deal with the town permit, he was responsive when I asked for information (flame certificates, workers comp information). The only question mark I had with the experience was that the reception location originally allowed us to set up a few days early. However, before hiring Special Events of New England, I had asked if they would be able to set up on the day of the wedding, just in case. I was told that they would be able to do that- provided that it wasn't pouring rain. They never said it would cost more money. Unfortunately, my wedding location ended up booking an event the night before mine and would not let us set up the tent until the day of the wedding. We didn't learn this until two weeks (maybe less) before the wedding. By that time, most of the Special Events of New England employees had scheduled vacation. They ended up charging me extra for tent set-up. Oh well. They did get it set up in time. Other than that, they did a really good job.

Everything was done in a timly fashion and the workers setting everything up were quick and worked with us to get it all exact. They were very helpful over the phone and through e-mail. The tent was honestly the best tent I have ever seen for a wedding condition wise. It must have been eather brand new of kept up very well because there was not a stain on it and it looked beautiful. I was very impressed with their equipment and everything that they had provided. The price had been a bit high for us but we absolutely got what we paid for!
