We used the Main Event for linen rentals only. Our less than five star ratings were cause by only one employee, who made our experience overly frustrating. The linens rentals were priced decently and arrived on time. Suzanne was a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately we did most of our business with, Brittany, who's customer service and basic functional skills are nonexistant.

Initially, we sent the Main Event a request for a quote for linens and listed the number of tables and the size of each table. Brittany responded by saying that did not rent tables in any of those sizes. I then pointed out, via the email subject line, that we were renting linens and already had the tables. A few hours later, Suzanne emailed us a quote with the needed linens, the prices, and a quote number to make reserving the linens easier.

The next day, I called to reserve the linens with my quote number, Brittany responded by saying that she would enter everything in by hand because the quote was stored in a different computer and she didn't want to get up to check it. I listed all the items from our quote (which she entered a few incorrectly, but we fixed later) and we reserved the linens.

Pick up went off without a hitch. When we went to return the linens, we gave them to Brittany, who didn't ask for our name or anything to verify that they were returned. Finally, we gave her the name on our reservation so that the Main Event knew we had returned our rentals.

Conclusion, rentals are decently priced and of good quality. Suzanne is great to work with and very professional, but good luck working with Brittany.

The Main Event was by far the most cost effective option we found for our wedding. And I really liked that they were a local business. Overall, they were great to work with.

This company was great to work with mostly because everyone was so accommodating and helpful. We had to make last minute decisions about tent sides and heaters because of a chillier and rainy day than expected and they really came through and helped us make sure everything was ready to go. They came out to our reception site multiple times just to help set up the extra requests and make sure everything was right!

The Main Event provided our tables and chairs for our reception. They delivered everything the night before, which was perfect, as it snowed on our wedding day. Everything was great!

A week before our wedding, we noticed that the temperatures were dropping..and fast! Since our wedding ceremony and part of the reception was outdoors, we needed heat lamps to keep the guests warm. The Main Event were very responsive with our request and everything was delivered on time. Since it was a last minute add, we wanted to limit how much we were spending on the lamps. Unfortunately, there was no flexibility with pricing and no fees could be waived. I felt that the cost could be a little lower for what we were getting, but I'm definitely glad we got the heat lamps as they worked out perfectly for a slightly chilly night in October.

We rented a tent, tables, chairs, and linens for our after party in my parents back yard. The Main Event was so helpful! They explained everything clearly and laid it all out for us. The set-up crew was very nice and worked very quickly. I highly recommend this company!

We rented chairs from Main Event for our outdoor ceremony, and had them do the setup.

They were great! The woman who helped me setup the rental was very patient as we changed our mind 15 times. Then she sent over a contract that laid out all the details very clearly - what we were renting, how it would be set up, etc. The delivery guys got there to drop off and pick up the chairs exactly on time. Couldn't ask for much more.

Thanks!
