At first I was really pleased with the service we were given. Then Friday night as we were setting up the tables we realized we were given a wrong tablecloth. Instead of a 90" we were given a 120" and it was MASSIVE. With no other option for the time being we folded it so it at least fit the table even though it looked stupid. My Brother-in-law contacted ABC about it and they were really quick in getting back to us, and told us they would bring us a new one the morning of the wedding. Everything seemed to be okay, until they didn't show up. Finally, as our ceremony was about to start, in comes the delivery guy with the table cloth which of course we couldn't change because there were people sitting at that table.
We changed it before the reception and when I returned our rentals I told them about the incident, and the lady working at the time left a message for her manager. He called me and blamed it on us saying that because we used the tablecloth anyways they weren't to blame. I do not recommend them because of the unprofessional way which they handled our problem.
We loved our linens and chair covers that were rented from ABC. However, we also rented candleabras which came with all different sized glass pieces. This made it difficult to make them look the same throughout the room since the glass pieces we all different sizes and patterns. We were not told of this prior to renting and would have liked to have been informed so that we could have had the option to rent something else.
I contacted ABC Weddings for a quote on our wedding, Bruce handled our wedding, he was nice and very professional. He was always helpful and was very nice everytime I called to make changes or had questions. We recieved the rentals a day earlier than we needed with out an extra charge, which was great, it ment we had more time to set up. We were actually shorted the head table chair covers and some other linens, but we made due using some of the venue linens and had Bruce ship the shorted chair covers, but we ended having to pay for the frieght, which wasn't right. Everything looked beautiful together and came nicely packaged. The only concern is that I had stumbled across a vendor who was cheaper than ABC and was closer. I called and asked if they would be competitive with their pricing, and never heard back. This was closer to the wedding (2 weeks) and had already paid in full. But it would of been nice to get some sort of discount using them instead of the cheaper and vendor or at least a thank you letting them know. Over, besides finding a cheaper vendor after paying in full. Their service was good as was their product.
I used ABC for rental mirrors for centerpieces, tablecloths and chair covers. Their store is located by NAIT downtown. I was very happy with everything rented. All was clean and pressed. I was able to pick up items on Thursday which was great as the Friday before is always hectic with decorating and other things. It is a family run business and they take their time to go through ideas with you regarding decor. Their prices are very reasonable and comparable to Special Event Rentals on the South side.
Take the time also to shop their other wedding accessories such as guest book pens, ring pillows, guest books and flower girl baskets. I found all my matching items there and their prices for Weddingstar items is cheaper than anywhere else.
ABC Weddings was absolutely fantastic. They were so helpful in giving me ideas, ordering in the items that weren't in stock and even giving me a more expensive item for the same price as the cheaper item they were unable to bring in on time for me. I would definitely recommend them for almost everything bridal, from chair covers and decorations to steaming my dress to perfection!
