Renting with the Tent Merchant was exactly what I hoped and expected. The rentals were well taken care of, promptly delivered, and set up exactly as discussed. Furthermore, they were incredibly communicative throughout the whole planning process, and were very understanding and receptive to changes. They were reasonably priced for the area, and had a fantastic variety of linens, chairs, furniture, and decor items to rent. I recommend going to their prop house to see the items in-person, as they are very friendly and willing to show you anything you'd like to see.

I don't been know where to start! John and the tent merchant team was amazing. Together with my planner Percy, John helped create his magnificent gorgeous space that made the Fess Parker, which is already a gorgeous venue, even more magical. His creative eye is amazing, and he helped me put together a space that was truly something out of my dreams. He was easy to work with, gave me the best prices, sent me the CAD worksheets showing the layouts, and helped make my dreams a reality.

The Tent Merchant provided all rentals for my rehearsal dinner, and August 9th Carpinteria wedding. We live out of town and made a couple of trips up to their Santa Barbara location to make decisions. Kirsten was amazing to work with! By the time we arrived my fiancé was losing steam from a long day of decision-making, and she made it quick and painless for both of us. They have a ton of great options for tables, chairs, china, silverware, dance floors, and more! We used the harvest tables for the head table (3 tables in a row) and it was beautiful! The white chiavari chairs were perfect on their rustic dance floor as well. The set up and tear down were painless. The men who arrived at our outdoor venue were very eager to make it exactly what we wanted... even after we had them adjust the exact placement of the dance floor about 3 times! :) I would recommend The Tent Merchant for ANY of your upcoming events!

The Tent Merchant provided the chairs, china, flatware, glassware and cocktail tables for our wedding. John, the owner, was delightful and easy going. The staff was always friendly and helpful. They answered any question we had regarding the rentals and were very accommodating to our indecisiveness. Everything went smoothly, even on the busy July 4th weekend. I strongly recommend them!

From the first time we visited the Tent Merchant the owners were helpful, professional and enthusiastic! As the wedding date grew closer they were patient with our changes and concerns and always tried to help us do things in a way that was economically favorable to us.

Had a wonderful experience with The Tent Merchant! They were a breeze to work with, even with an insanely complicated event such as a from-scratch wedding. From the bar to chandeliers, glasses and tables, TTM went out of their way to make us happy. They even ordered new blush glasses that would work well for our event. Don't hesitate, these guys are the best in town!

Having our wedding at a winery meant that we had to bring everything into the venue with us and the very thought of that was very stressful. Thankfully we worked with The Tent Merchant and they made it an easy and stress-free process. They have the most amazing collection of rental items and picking everything out was so much fun. They were able to work within our budget and suggested items that helped save us money that still delivered a wedding that our guests described as "something out of the movies." The staff was so friendly and helpful and we loved working with all of them. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them at all!

Tent Merchant was absolutely wonderful! We worked with Kirsten and she was by far the most helpful, patient, positive vendor we worked with! In the hectic and stressful wedding planing process, she was someone we looked forward to working with. She helped us make our vision a reality and never made us feel rushed, always taking the time to work out every detail with us. Although Tent Merchant was a little more expensive then other vendors in the area, Kirsten and the Tent Merchant team made it well worth the additional cost..

Tent Merchant was the complete package for rentals. They helped us sort
through the inventory and develop a style and feeling for the wedding that
matched our vision and site. The wedding took place in a canyon meadow,
and the reception down at the barn area. We wanted a rustic meets elegant wedding, Italian market style seating with 16 foot tables, and comfortable padded oak chairs. We used ivory instead of white to soften the effect, and
popped the tables with bright orange napkins. Live succulents were boxed
and mixed with hurricane candle holders down the middle. We used the
ivory plates with the gold rims and the mixed vintage cutlery. Water carafes and red and white wine bottles were on the tables. I changed the size of
the tables the last week and Tent Merchant was very flexible. They addressed
all of my concerns and were very understanding on any changes I made along the way. They know how to throw a wedding. Trust them! I did!
