How will my order be processed?
Inquiries placed through our website via Wishlist submissions will be translated into a rental invoice. If items requested in your order are not available, we will contact you to discuss alternatives. We will email you a copy of your order. Always make sure the information on your reservation is complete and accurate. Any last minute changes must be submitted at least 1 week before your scheduled pick up or delivery date.

Do you accommodate last minute orders?
Of course! We will try our best to see if the items you are interested in are available. Orders are considered last minute when they are placed 1 week or less before your event date. Once a last minute order is reserved there are no cancellations and/or reductions. Please keep in mind, last minute orders are subject to a $75 rush order fee and must meet the $100 minimum order requirement.

How long is the rental period?
The rental period is for 1-day and includes day before pickup and day after return. If your event is on a weekend,  you may pickup Friday and drop off items Monday (since we are closed weekends). You will be charged a full days rental for every day you decide to keep items after your scheduled drop off.

Do you deliver?
Customers may pick up and return dessert stands free of charge. Delivery and pick up charges range from $100 – $300 within Los Angeles County, Orange County, Inland Empire, and San Diego* County.

You can reduce the delivery charges, by half, if you just have us deliver the items and you return them to our office the Monday following your event, alternatively you can pick up items at our office and we retrieve the items after your event.

*For deliveries in San Diego we will pick up the items right after your event, or the day following your event.

Additional $80 charge for late night pick ups (i.e., item retrieval after conclusion of wedding or event)

Don’t worry about washing your glass pieces after use (we take care of that for you) just make sure they are free from liquid, food particles and debris.

Damaged, lost, or broken items will be charged to the credit card we have on file, we will notify you before we charge the replacement values to your card. Your rental cost will be applied to the replacement value.

What are the replacement values for the items I am renting?
