When desperate came for desperate measures, Select was there to help. The tent was put up in 3 hours, looked great, and was just what we were looking for. The planner plus workers stayed on site until the job was finished. Everything worked out perfectly!

Overall, pretty good service. They did say we lost a few things, which we dispute, but they never charged us for them so it didn’t really matter.

In our case, a huge Baltimore event kept roads closed for hours past the official end times, and their trucks were not able to get to the venue until 30 minutes before the start. I have never in my life seen people hustle that quickly, and despite the rush the execution was absolutely flawless. The best review for them is not from me, or any bride, but from the experienced vendors we worked with, who have seen hundreds of weddings and all agreed that Select is the absolute best.

We used select events for chiavari chair rentals. They were easy to work with and had a competitive prices.

We got a lot of compliments about the china, glassware, charger plates, and flatware from this particular vendor during my August 2014 wedding. They delivered according my time schedule and convenience which was appreciated. The china and glassware were perfect. I have to...
