Our ceremony is going to be outside (reception inside), but we are renting a back-up tent for the ceremony in case of rain.
In addition to the tent rental cost ($1,100 for a 40’x60′), we are getting charged a 20% service fee + a $250 set up fee.
I expected some sort of set up fee, but the service charge seems excessive. Our venue has an exclusive contract with one rental company, so I don’t have the option to go with another place.
For those of you renting tents or other items, are you getting charged service fees + set up fees? Also, have you negotiated fees with vendors with any success?
