Ultimate Events provided all of the tables, chairs, and dinnerware for my wedding. They were great to work with and very flexible with our venue (which was an art museum). They were extremely helpful during the planning process and walked through each item with us to make sure we were avoiding unnecessary expenses. They were excellent!

We worked with Allison at Ultimate Events- she was fantastic to work with and very timely with her responses to our (MANY) questions. Like everyone tells you- the rentals cost WAY more than you think- and man is it true! Unfortunately, everyone needs a place to sit and a table to eat on, so there isn't much of a way to trim costs when it comes to rentals. But, Allison was great at giving us recommendations on areas we could change or trim without compromising the look and feel of our wedding. We ended up renting pretty much the simplest options and it worked beautifully with our wedding!

What a disaster!!! Do not hire this company!
As my date approached, I had questions arise. Specifically, I needed to know how much money we owed Ultimate Events. I sent them an email and received a response. Based upon that response, I went ahead and paid them that requested amount. Turns out a couple of weeks later, we found out that the amount was incorrect and that I actually owed them about $1300 more. The super annoying thing about that is that when I asked them why they didn't tell me about this when I had asked, the response I received was because their response was based on a different computer program that she didn't have open at the time. If a customer has a question, open the program and get the correct answer! As annoying as this was, this was nothing compared to what happened on my actual wedding day.
I had rented farm style chairs for my wedding. The chairs cost $12/each. I knew that it was going to be a huge expense but I was willing to pay it to get exactly what I wanted. Ultimate Events knew that my wedding was to take place outdoors as my venue is an outdoor venue. On the morning of the wedding, when Ultimate Events was to deliver my rentals (including the chairs) they refused to set up the chairs outdoors. They stated that the grass had a small amount of dew on it so they would not set up the chairs outside and wanted to move my wedding inside. My wedding day was a perfect sunny day - there was no way that I was going to have the wedding inside because of some dew that was going to be dry in a short period of time. News flash! It's Minnesota! There is always dew on the grass in the mornings! Don't rent $12 chairs to people with outdoor weddings if you are going to refuse to

From the first time we walked into the showroom to get ideas for centerpieces and decorations for the ceremony, the staff was very helpful and responsive. We made changes with no problems. The wedding was at the Grand Casino in Hinkley and they were very accommodating and flexible with pickup and drop off times. Everything was ready for us when we got there to pick up the items and they were very quick to unload when we brought them back.

Bad experience, over priced and Allison was hard to reach and did not return our calls. We reserved a large tent, which the company would not set up due to the rain. They stated we would get some of our money back and when it came time to contact them after the wedding no one would answer our calls. I would recommend going somewhere else.

We didn't work directly with anyone at Ultimate Events (they were contracted through our caterer), but they were a great price, had everything we needed, and came to set-up and take-down in a timely manner. Couldn't have asked for better service!

Allison was wonderful to work with. She was very personable, as well as attentive. She helped us pick out the perfect look for our reception. We had to rent all of the tables and chairs, the place settings, and linens through Ultimate Events. Everything seemed to be going great. Then the wedding day came. The rental company just seemed to drop everything off and scram. We were never told it was our job to set up everything. Luckily, we had wonderful friends and family there to help with what needed to be put together. It was also a hassle that it was our job to carry the chairs from the ceremony to the reception tables - that's not something you want to worry about on when you're in the midst of greeting your guests after the ceremony. They were also short a few things. Even though Allison was great, I wouldn't recommend this company. We felt overcharged with what we were getting for our money.
