Common Questions

Question: How do I find what I’m looking for?

Our site can navigate you to all products that we have available for rental. You can search for a specific color, size or a keyword from any of our pages.

Question: I found a price for less somewhere else, can you match it?

There are many companies on the internet and locally that rent linens. Make sure that you work with a company that provides a professional quality product. In this business, you get what you pay for. We professionally launder all of our products in between each and every use. You can expect to receive a quality product from us each and every time with no exceptions.

Question: Where do I start?

First, have a general idea of what you want your event to look like. Once you have that idea, we can help you turn your dream into a reality. Please contact us for a No Obligation consultation.

Question: I want to reserve my chair covers and linens, what’s next?

Once you have decided what you want, we can help you with the details. To guarantee your date, you will need to sign a contract and place a 50% deposit. All the paperwork can be done over the phone and via email.

Question: How do I obtain shipping quotes?

All of our shipping quotes are based on the items, quantity and location we are shipping to. Our primary means of shipping is via FedEx, however we sometimes ship with UPS. All of our shipping quotes cover round trip shipping, unless you are located in Hawaii or Alaska, then you are responsible for return shipping. All you need to do is box the linens back up at the end of the event, place the pre-printed label on the box(es) and call FedEx to have them picked up.

Question: How far in advance do I need to reserve linens for my wedding?

We recommend that you reserve your event at least 1 month prior to your event. While we have an extensive quantity on hand of all of our products, some of them do rent out for specific dates. Therefore, to ensure the color(s) you want are available, we recommend even more time.

Question: Can I change the quantity of chair covers that I have ordered?

Reserved linens may be adjusted up/down 10% up to three weeks before your wedding. A representative will contact you three weeks before to confirm your final numbers.

Question: How will my linens arrive? Do they need to be ironed?

Your linens will arrive neatly pressed and folded in boxes. Please do not iron any of our product as it can and often does get ruined by doing so. As tempting as it may be to iron a fun napkin fold, this will ruin the napkin and thus render it unusable for any other client.

Question: How do I return my linens?

Most orders come with our return bags. These have a prepaid FedEx label on them. Small orders may include a label to attach and return in the same box that they arrived in. Our shipping quotes cover round trip shipping with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii. Linens must be returned to FedEx or a Fabulous Events office the next business day after an event (example: a Friday or Saturday event must be sent back on Monday). Items shipped to Alaska or Hawaii must be returned via a traceable method. This includes FedEx, UPS, DHL or Priority Mail. Returns via Parcel post cannot be tracked.

Question: Is there anyway to have someone set them up for us? Is there a charge? If so, how much?

Local installation/teardown can be performed if you are in Southeast Michigan, Northern Ohio, Indianapolis and NYC. The costs vary depending on the time allowed to setup, amount of time allowed to do the setup (smaller window requires additional staff), and distance to the location we are setting up.

Question: Can we pick up the linen from your facility?

Yes, you may pick up the items free of charge from our Waterford, Michigan warehouse.

Question: Do we need to clean or iron the items before we return it to your facility?

No, you are not responsible to clean your linens prior to returning to us. You must only remove the food and debris from all tablecloths and covers. We also request that you untie your sashes prior to returning. Food left on the linen will mold (especially if it shipped more than a day from our facility). Linens that are returned with Mold and Mildew on them cannot be cleaned and the customer will be required to pay a replacement cost as stated in the contract.

Question: Could we view the chair covers before and possibly bring it to the hall to see if they fit?

Yes. We can ship swatches at no charge or you can get a sample chair cover shipped to you for a non-refundable fee of $15. If you prefer to reserve your date with a 50% deposit, there is no charge to send the sample chair cover. Either way, the chair cover needs to be returned within 10 days to us.

Question: What if the chair cover does not fit?
