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... Read More 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.

We used Exeter Events & Tents for the linens and a beautiful wine barrel bar at our wedding. Their wedding and event consultant, Emily Varn, was SO helpful throughout the linen process. She gave us all the necessary information and also gave us her professional and personal... Read More opinion on various items, which was greatly appreciated. The company as a whole was easy to work with and dropped off & picked things up in a timely manner. We could not have been happier with the way the linens and wine barrel bar looked on our big day!

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... Read More 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!

As expected

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... Read More 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!

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... Read More 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!

Excellent Service

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... Read More (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.

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... Read More glitch was a promised set up time that ended up being too early for the set up crew to make.

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
