Well, I'm getting married on Ambergris Caye in Feb. 2008. I am getting married on the beach and having our reception by the pool at our resort. My problem... I need chairs and tables. I was quoted $10 US and $25 per table for rental. Well, I have 40 people coming, so that adds up to a lot of money and sounds very expensive for just a rental. Is there anyone that knows any other place that will rent white folding chairs? I don't care what the tables look like, as I will probably have table cloths. Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks... I am VERY excited. It has been a little difficult to plan things because there is very few choices for flowers, caterers, etc. I am not picky, but it seems that the prices are so expensive, probably because there is very little competition. I wish we would have just eloped and got married just us two so I wouldn't have to worry about all of the planning.
Xanadu... they are trying to help me with the arrangements. They said that is only place she knew of and that is their price. I just thought I'd see if anyone hear maybe knew of any other place or locals that would have tables/chairs to rent, or maybe someone who was in the same situation as me. Just a try, I guess.
Yes, I've been working with Susan, and she said that was the only rental place, and that is the price. Actually, she quoted me $3/chair just a couple months ago, but she said they increased their price to $10/chair. What a rediculous inflation! I thought it was a misquote too! I am working with Dulce on my flowers. I guess I'll ask her about chairs and tables as well. Thanks!
I agree, it does sound fishy to me... just like my caterer changing her mind on including the tables and chairs in the price and many other people that have gone back on their written word to me. It has not been a fun experience at all. Yes, I would be fine with the white plastic molded chairs, and I've told Susan that. She has told me that she did know of some pastic chairs that were cheaper, but she has told me several times that they were cracked and very bad shape and I would not want them for my wedding... even after I have told her several times I do not want to pay $10 for each chair or $400 for 40. I could buy a plastic chair for $10 each in the US, let alone rent one.
