We had a mostly DIY wedding at the Seacoast Science Center that required working with lots of different vendors, and Exeter Events & Tents was instrumental in helping everything go smoothly. I can't say enough about how responsive and helpful our coordinator, Emily, was. We needed to rent all the chairs, tables, linens, dance floor, etc., for our wedding, and her familiarity with our venue was invaluable in helping us to understand what we needed and we could pass on. She responded so quickly to my calls and questions, even when our wedding was still months away. They were incredibly flexible with last-minute changes in our numbers, they communicated well with our wedding coordinator, and were overall just wonderful to work with.
While they were a little more expensive, it was worth it! Great customer service.
Exeter Events & Tents was an absolute dream to work with! They were able to switch the size of the tent for my wedding just two weeks before the event date. Their sail cloth tents are absolutely stunning and the lights they hung were perfect! All of the staff members I interacted with were incredibly professional and accommodating! I would recommend them to anyone!
We had a great experience renting from Exeter Events and Tents. We had come up with a fairly complete list of what we thought we would need before meeting with them and then went up to see their showroom in person to look at their selection to finalize things. There, we met with Lauren who was very helpful in helping us choose the various design elements, such as which table linens, flatware, and china to rent, as well as helping determine the number we'd need of many of these items. We made a few tweaks to the order as our guest list and menu were finalized and after being able to make a site visit to the venue and they were helpful in making changes and updating the contract. They were able to drop off all of the rentals on the Friday before the party and pick them up on the Sunday after, which was the ideal scheduling for our event. Both the drop-off and pick-up went very smoothly, not requiring—their delivery people, once told where to put the various items, made quick work of it. We'd highly recommend them for any event you're planning in the area!
Exeter Events and Tents provided just about everything we needed to pull off the perfect Wedding. Emily helped us select a beautful sailcloth tent as well as the perfect seating, linens and dance floor to compliment our venue. The delivery and set up was timely and professional with great attention to detail allowing us plenty of time to personalize prior to the event. Emily was available and patient when we made changes to our order and provided meaningful input when considering items such as fans. Our Wedding Day was exactly what we had pictured it to be thanks to their beautiful rentals.
Excellent service and all of our linens, tables, and chairs were clean when they arrived!

We used Exeter Events & Tents for our outdoor wedding. They were super easy to work with and provided us with out of the ordinary options. We used cross back chairs that blew the more common fancy chairs out of the water! They delivered when they said they would and set it up exactly to plan.

Lynsie was very helpful, even with last minute changes and suggestions. They dealt with the set up, all to my specifications, as well as the clean up. Would definitely use them again.

Overall greatReviewed on 7/21/2014 K.Lee M
Not sure that I recommend this company. Products are beautiful, but I have to share this-- they did not notice the glitch that we ordered 85 chairs, but they had written that we only needed 80 napkins. When they went over our final order on the phone two weeks before the wedding, we noticed and said we needed more napkins to cover all our 85 guests. They said it was too late to order more. To solve it my mom bought a set of nice napkins for just the wedding party table so we just looked a little special. The OTHER thing was that we ordered green table cloths and half of them showed up in peach!! Luckily it worked with the rest of our color scheme so I didn't freak out. (I know another bride might have flipped!) We sort of laughed it off, but I'm not sure how that happened when they packed for us!

Working with them was very easy. Their chairs, tables, and dance floor, great! I have no complains.

Exeter Events and Tents delivered exactly as promised! We needed a large tent, tables, chairs, and linens for a wedding venue which had never had a large tent before. Because we planned to set up the tables and decor ourselves, we needed the tent set up the day before, so we could do all the decorating the day-of. Exeter Events and Tents was able to co-ordinate this with us, having the tent ready for us one day and everything else delivered first thing the next morning, meeting our narrow time constraints. They also were able to meet a time request we had for take-down the day after the wedding. Half-way through our months of planning, a new Exeter Events and Tents co-ordinator took over our event. While at first I had a moment of mother-of-the-bride/wedding-planner stress about this, the transition was seamless, and our new co-ordinator was completely in-tune with our needs. She provided advice and quick assistance to any question I had, and happily revised our contract countless times. The wedding was out-of-state from our home, so I was only able to visit the showroom once, and never even met our ultimate co-ordinator. Regardless, she treated me like I was a well-known and valued customer! Thank you,thank you, Exeter Events and Tents!
simply the best!Reviewed on 10/25/2013
I was very happy with Exeter Event & Tents as the tent vendor for my wedding. From the get-go Ashley and her team were so accomodating. The staff that physically put up the tent were fantastic as well. The best part about it all was how beautiful the tent looked. We had a backyard wedding at my parents home in Walpole, MA. The sailcloth tent was gorgeous- it lit up the entire property at night. All of my guests could not stop talking about how beautiful it was. We also had japanese lanterns that were personally placed by Ashley and she did a wonderful job. Ashley is professional, and does not push you to do anything that you don't want to do. She is very knowledgable about spacing for the tent on your property. Highly recommend everyone at EET!

Exeter did the tables, dance floor, lighting and chairs for our wedding. Even though we worked with them to plan where all the tables would be, I did have to pay the caterers to come early and move everything from where Exeter had put it to the actual places we had planned on (they left it all in the tent, just not necessarily in the right places). This was not a surprise the day of, just an additional expense. We had a bit of a glitch because the chairs actually needed to be set up for the ceremony (about 200 ft away) - Exeter never asked me about the ceremony, so that was an oversight on both our parts. But the lights were gorgeous, if expensive, and the quality of the linens and tables were great. Exeter was also timely, which is SO important on your wedding day! We met with them twice to discuss options, they were very patient and made all my changes correctly. Just be clear with what you need and they will make it happen.
Tent Reception Rentals from ExeterReviewed on 9/30/2013 Analee H
We rented a sailcloth tent, tables, chairs, dance floor and place settings from Exeter. They worked through Alan's of Boscawen so we dealt with them very little prior to the big day. They set the tent up over our venue's tennis court and it looked so beautiful! Had absolutely no issues with this vendor, they were professional and comparable in price to other companies around the region.
Tent looked beautiful!Reviewed on 9/16/2013 Sethan L
I was overall very happy with Exeter Events & Tents. There staff had a very "can do" attitude when it came to my order, set up time, break down time, etc. They were flexible with what was on my order up until a couple weeks before my wedding. The one thing that became a small glitch was a promised set up time that ended up being too early for the set up crew to make. It all worked on just fine in the end, and the co. was very good about making their small error correct.
Great ServiceReviewed on 8/29/2012 Sarah S
These guys got everything done in the allotted time, which was not much time at all. Nicole Mower was great, answering any questions I had throughout the planning process. She even has her own wedding planner business and does day of coordination. She was able to keep it within our budget by letting us know ahead of time what we could realistically get for our money. I was very impressed with the execution of setup at the venue as well.
Chairs and latticeReviewed on 7/03/2012 Ashley N
It's a little pricey because everything is an additional charge. Delivery, set-up, take down, pick up...everything costs extra and it's per item not just a flat rate. Over all good just not that budget friendly
Good serviceReviewed on 7/02/2012 Lauren S

outdoor backyard wedding rentalReviewed on 12/03/2011 Hannah B
Exeter Events and Tents was such a relief after all the stresses of wedding planning. They were so friendly and genuinely sweet. The prices were less than what I was expecting and they dropped off/picked everything up within a handful of days so we didn't feel rushed. I felt really comfortable in their showroom and comfortable with Jessica, who was very helpful and patient. My wedding was awesome!

I used Exeter Events and Tents for all my wedding rentals. The consultants are very knowledgeable and I found them extremely helpful when it came to deciding what style and size tent I needed. They also created a layout for me which was amazing because it helped me envision my wedding. The quality of the items are fantastic. I rented Fruitwood Chivari Chairs with White cushions and they were so beautiful! All of my glassware, flatware and dishware were also rented from Exeter and I couldn't have been happier.
