So normaly I think folks would probably post this in a local board, but both of my potential local boards are pretty quiet.
I’m super excited and needed to share my giddy without annoying FI (more).
We’re doing a tented reception. FI and I researched several tent rental folks, but settled on a mom and pop kind of operation. They’re prices were pretty close to the other bigger folks.
So I called them Monday and left a message about wanting to schedule a time to look/sign contracts and book them. He called me back on Tuesday, apologized profusly about taking a day to call back and then we chated about my needs. He said he’d draw up a bid and e-mail it to me this week. Before we were done talking I asked him about linens. When I had met with him at a bridal show he said that he would provide several linen companies’ information, I would work directly with them on the contract and then he’d pick the linens up before delivering the tent. Well since then they’ve gone into the linen rental business, but don’t yet have everything that I’m looking for. In talking with him I got the impression that if he doesn’t have what I want, he’ll probably buy it and rent it to me. AWESOME!!!!
Anyway. .. it was really the first vendor that I’d worked with and he left me with a feeling of confidence that he’d go out of his way to make my event feel like the only event he’s working on.
