Hi! My catering doesn’t directly provide tables and chairs but i do rent them through them (though I’m not forced)
we’re having a cocktail style for 50 and before I talk to my cater about the cost of the rentals, I wanted to have an idea of what to expect, to know if I should go with them (way easier) or shop around
so, what was your cost? Tx!

I am not sure since my tables and chairs were supplied by the hotel. But it’s ALWAYS a good idea to shop around. It only takes a phone call or email to compare prices.

My tables, chairs and linens were provided by the venue but I am a TX bride and it depends on what type of chairs you want and the size of the table. Do you want rectangular or cirle tables? How many people do you want to seat per table (I would suggest 10 ppl per table so you can cut down on centerpieces and have more space). What type of chairs are you wanting? There’s the white garden chairs (like I am using) that’s usually under $3 per chair ($2.25 ea in my area) or the chivari chairs that’s usually approx. $8.50 per chair in my area.

Agree with PP – it’s always a good idea to shop around. But, make sure you ask about delivery/set up fees as well. Sometimes companies don’t always include them in their quote & they can add up to make a difference.

I’m using garden white chairs and they are $3.50/chair in my area. Tables I have seen from $8.50-$20!
