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.
