Maybe I’m just getting sticker shock but some of these prices seem high to me…
What do you think bees?
$450 for ceiling drapery
$1.75 per charger plate
$3.00 per chair cover
$285 for set up
$150 for take down and
$50 for delivery.
Also so there will be 12% tax on top of everything.
*Note im also having overlays and other items not included in this post. Just some prices as examples.

That’s pretty comparable to Calgary prices. The chair covers seem a bit pricy, but that might be due to the style you’re chose or the fabric they’re made from. If you think you’re being charged too much get some additional quotes and then try to bargain them down.

Some of those numbers are similar to what my caterer is offering. They are quoting us $3-4 for chair cover and sash (poly or spandex style) and $350 set up/take down for the whole catering job.
If we went with our own chair rentals, it would be around the same price, but an extra $100 or so for delivery (weekend extra, after hours return extra), and no one to set them up and dealing with wrinkley covers.
Our venue does any of the big decorations like draping, and they charge $90/hr, 3hr minimum.

@Lakelyn: thanks for the response! I’ve actually alreasy negltiated the chair covers down by 25% (they’ll be ruched, no sashes).
@miette: Where a outs are you getting married. Mine is out of the city so I’m finding any other decorator just wants to charge me ridiculous transport fees. Sigh.
