Rob was extremely helpful and responsive from the first time I contacted them through the entire process. Southern Hospitality Event Rentals exceeded my expectations with the garden string lighting for my venue in City Park. It was exactly how I envisioned it, and I received... Read More many compliments on how beautiful the reception was. Everything was set up and taken down exactly on time, and SHER worked with City Park for a timeline, so I didn't have to worry about a thing. I also rented a beautiful 50' carpet aisle runner for my ceremony in the Peristyle, which was perfect. After reaching out to other local rental companies, whose communication was lacking and prices were much higher, I am so glad I went with SHER. They were very professional and pleasant to work with. Highly recommend! Thank you, Rob!

I am a wedding planner in the New Orleans/Northshore area and use Southern Hospitality regularly for all my brides and/or events I run. His team is quick to respond and process orders and always very competitive on pricing. It's so important to me as a planner to have... Read More dependable and reliable vendors and that's why Southern Hospitality is my first pick. He's on time, pricing is right, and staff is very helpful. Rob, the owner, has gone out of his way multiple times to assist me with last minute emergencies/needs which is really amazing because in the wedding business emergencies happen unfortunately! I highly recommend them - no matter our wedding budget they are rental company we call.

Rob with Southern Hospitality was amazing to work with for our wedding. We wanted to rent chiavari chairs and he was able to accommodate us with the 200 or so we ordered.

I reserved a tent and chairs with Southern Hospitality a few months out from my wedding. The tent was intended to be an insurance policy for my partially outdoor wedding in the event that it rained. Well, it didn't just rain, IT POURED. Days before I called Southern... Read More Hospitality to try to add an additional tent. They accomodated me and the addition of lights with no problem. They didn't charge a premium for adding to the booking the week of. They got everything set up. The day before when they arrived to erect the tent they discovered it wasn't clean. Instead of just putting it up and hoping no one would notice - they took the steps to clean everything. It took them hours to get it up - going above and beyond what I'm sure many other companies would have done. Everything was set up perfectly. I couldn't have been more happy with the outcome. Professional, courteous and great to work with. Their prices were far better than many of the competitors I contacted. I highly recommend them for your wedding or other events.

SHER did a great job with the lighting of my outdoor ceremony. We met once a to discuss some details and then didn't really converse much after that-- which was a good thing in my book! They came, set everything up and took it all down for a reasonable price.

I used SHER for gold chivari chair rentals for my wedding on 4-2-16 at the Omni Royal Orleans. Rob was AMAZING start to finish. He was incredibly easy to work with, always accessible via phone and e-mail, and incredibly helpful. I initially looked into Perrier rentals because... Read More they were the most "popular" vendor. Being an out of town bride - I figured to look into them. When they wanted to charge me an insane amount of money for set up/late night pick up, etc and were very rude when I inquired about the very high costs - I began looking to other, more reasonable and friendly vendors. I am SO happy I found Rob. We even had some challenges with our rehearsal dinner venue and called Rob last minute for some table and linen rentals. He was so accommodating to our last minute needs. Needless to say my wedding was gorgeous because of my chairs - I would definitely, without a doubt, recommend Rob and his team to any bride who wants to make their wedding day easy and beautiful!!!!!

Being a destination bride you pray (or at least i did) to find amazing vendors that were understanding. That didn't mind receiving 10 emails from you in 10 minutes, lol and thankfully I found that in Rob Verdi and Southern Hospitality Event Rentals. Their use of technology to... Read More perform business virtually is amazing. Mr. Verdi was always able to answer questions and change things up at a moments notice. Like I said to him in a personal email I can't wait to meet him in person. Its just good to be good and SHER is GREAT! My wedding isn't until a year from now but I'm that confident in knowing SHER will make me feel the same way on my wedding day as they do today. Thank you Rob and I'll see you in November 2016 :-)
