After years of working in social services, Nancy Comer and her business partner decided they wanted to work in a field that focused on the happier times in people’s lives. They created RSVP Event Equipment Rentals in 2001 and have been helping brides and grooms create their dream weddings ever since.
They offer tents, tables, chairs, décor, lighting, draping, columns, arches and more.
“The staff and I really like the process of pulling together and making someone happy for their big day or a day that’s really important to them,” Comer said.
The process of working with RSVP starts with a free consultation that is all about collaborating with the client to create an event that is tailored to the couple’s vision.
Comer said she starts by determining the customer’s style, how formal or casual the event will be, where the event will take place, and if their budget is loose or tight.
“We ask brides and grooms to bring in inspiration pics and swatches of fabrics that represent the colors they want to use in their event,” she said. “Then we do a lot of talking and brainstorming.”
The consultation usually takes an hour to an hour and a half and Comer and her staff are usually able to come up with a rough bid by the end of the appointment.
“And then it’s email, email, email,” she said. “We share what we’ve found and hear each other out. It comes together quicker if we’re all feeding into the same bid.”
Comer said most couples plan appropriately, but it’s a good idea to give RSVP a call when you have secured your venue to ensure availability. The rental company asks that brides and grooms put half of the bid amount down before the big day and pay the balance on the day the equipment is delivered.
