Colonial Event Rental
I hired Colonial Events to provide the tent, dance floor, stage and lighting for my wedding. I was beyond disappointed in their performance.
I would urge all future brides to look elsewhere.
I would consider the job they did embarrassing. The number of mistakes they made was truly astounding.
First, the tent was set up incorrectly. The dance floor and stage were setup too centered so that the head table was on the wrong side. The plans were clear, we emailed back and forth about the floor plan (which was ultimately created by Colonial) probably 20 times. This was upsetting.
Colonial told me it was necessary to pay a lot of money for a valence and pole drapes so that you couldn't see the ugly part of where the tent connected to the poles. The valence didn't even make it around the entire perimeter of the tent. It was short about 25%. And where it was, it was setup so messy that it was twisted and tucked in completely defeating its purpose. The pole drapes weren't drapes but just fabric tied tightly around the poles. I had emailed a picture from Colonial's own website of how I want the pole drapes to look (how I assumed their pole drapes looked since it was a picture from their event)...this was not it and this was extremely ugly.
I paid for spot lighting, none of which was setup.
I paid for 2 chandeliers that were never setup.
I finally got reimbursed for the missing items, but it was still extremely upsetting.
My parents hosted a brunch at their house the following day and rented some chairs from Colonial. Over half of the chairs were beat up so badly and had torn seats that my Mom didn't even use them. She was too embarrassed they were in such bad condition.
Under no circumstance would I ever recommend using Colonial for any event needs. Its not just big items like tents they can't handle, but clearly renting 10 chairs in decent quality...
Todd from Colonial Events is fantastic. As an event planner, I have worked with Todd many times. He is extremely creative and just a blast to work with. It says a lot about him that when it came time for me to choose a vendor to create the ambiance for my own son's wedding... the only one I trusted was Todd and Colonial Events! He did an fabulous job! I would strongly encourage future bride's to consider hiring Colonial events... it will make your wedding day extraordinary!!! Victoria R
I rented my ceremony chairs from them. They were competitive in price and in very good condition. They also had black which was more elegant than the white and less predictable.
They made me a little nervous because they delivered the chairs about an hour later than they should have, but still in plenty of time for my ceremony.
I used Colonial Event Rental for my wedding and they were pretty awesome to work with. They gave us a lot of ideas and they do room drafting if need be, without any charge. The rentals added an elegant touch to my outdoor reception, I wouldn't change anything! There were some changes at the last minute but they compensated by throwing in some freebies and I was more than happy with that. I got gold chivari chairs, disco ball, uplighting, table linens and some more - they all looked great to me!
The chairs worked out well, They were Beat up on the bottoms (white Vynal) but i was pre warned and told thats why they were $1.00 a chair instead of the listing price. I think they worked out just great to get the all white chair look on a tight budget. Check out my photos if you wish to see the chairs.
