Questions about How it Works? Here are answers to some of our most common inquiries:

Reserve FAQ's:

Q. Do I need an appointment to visit the showroom?

A. Our showroom is by appointment only. You can book your consultation here.

Q. Is the entire collection on the website?

A. We try to keep the website as up to date as possible, but there are typically 6-12 new items not on the site at any given time.

A. We can accommodate weekday weddings in Vancouver. Contact us to inquire!

Q. I'm having a destination wedding, can I still rent items?

Pick Up FAQ's:

A. We are happy to accommodate other pick up days when possible. Feel free to discuss this at your consultation.

Q. I can't make it to pick up that day; can someone else pick up for me?

A. Definitely! It is best to let us know that someone else will be coming and they will need to give your name in order to pick up.


Return FAQ's:
