We created Something Borrowed Events because we know that adding a personal touch to your event's décor can really make it special. Hopefully you've had the chance to browse our inventory and you've found some pieces that will be just right for you! If you're looking for something in particular and don't see it here, PLEASE just ask and we will do our best to find what you are looking for. We are always expanding our inventory, so if you have any items of your own that you would like to sell, we would be happy to take a look at them. Along with the antique pieces we've found, many of our items are hand crafted, one-of-a-kind items. If you have an idea for something you'd love to have made, or found an awesome Pinterest idea that you'd like some help with, please let us know! We would love to create an original piece just for you.
Sometimes its hard to see the big picture. You may see really cute ideas on Pinterest but you're just not sure where to find the items or how to put them all together. Something Borrowed Events offers a styling service to put together our pieces as well as pieces you may have found elsewhere. Our styling service is a separate fee from our rentals. We would love to offer you one free hour to discuss exactly what you would like. Any additional time will be charged at $50.00 per hour. Because each event is so unique, day of set up fees will vary and pricing will be agreed upon during our consultation.
We understand that you are going to have a lot going on right before your big event and that picking up your
items can be a burden. Delivery fees are separate from your rental fees. We will deliver within a 30 mile radius
from our location for $2.00 per mile. If your venue is farther than 30 miles away, we will charge $3.00 per mile for each mile after the first 30 miles.
Setups and teardowns of our items are not included in the delivery fee, but if you would like us to set-up our pieces, please see the Styling Services section above. We ask that you give us a one-hour window to drop off and pick up our items. We do not require that you are present when we drop off or pick up, but that you make sure that the doors will be unlocked as our items cannot be stored outside. Unfortunately, if we are not able to drop off our items at the venue within the one hour window that is agreed upon before delivery, you will still be charged the delivery fee and you will have to pick up the items you have rented at our location. All of our items must be returned in the bins that they are delivered in, or you will be charged a fee of $10.00 per missing bin.
Now that you've got your heart set on some items, it's time to get down to the nitty gritty. Below, you will find a list of our policies and regulations for renting. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
Placing an Order
We would love to sit down and meet with you to discuss exactly what you would like for your event. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit in order to reserve all of the pieces you desire for your event. We
understand that you may need to change your order closer to the event date, adding more items, or substituting
items that you no longer wish to rent. If you choose to reduce the amount of items you are renting, the total fee
may not decrease by more than 20%. Feel free to add or reduce items until 15 days prior to your event. Any items
that are reduced after the 15 day mark will not be refunded. Just remember to check for availability as soon as
possible to ensure you get everything you would like! We typically rent out our pieces for one to three days but we will work with you if you need them for longer. Dates and rental time periods will be decided upon in the contract. Contracts can be signed via email or in person.
Life happens. Trust me, we understand that weddings and events can get pretty crazy! One of your groomsmen
may have a little too much to drink and break a glass. Or your crazy Aunt Linda decides that it's a good idea to dance atop a vintage couch. We get it. Stuff happens.
To make sure all of our items are covered, we require that you pay a 5% nonrefundable wear and tear fee to be applied to your total bill. This fee will cover all "normal" wear and tear on our items. This includes broken glasses, small knicks and scuffs, and dirt that can be removed after a good cleaning.
If our items do not come back, are damaged beyond repair, or have rips in the upholstery, you will have to pay a replacement fee. Replacement fees will be discussed before your event and will appear in your contract.
Outdoor weddings are our favorite to style, but along with having an outdoor wedding, you have to be aware that Mother Nature sometimes has her own way of thinking. Any items that are damaged due to inclement weather are subject to a replacement fee.
If an item that you have reserved would happen to get ruined or damaged before your rental day we will do our best to find a replacement. If we cannot find a replacement for your item, we will refund you the 50% retainer fee that you paid upon placing the order for that specific item.
If your venue does not offer event insurance, we highly recommend you obtain an event insurance policy to make sure that you and your guests are covered during unforeseen circumstances.
China and Glassware Care
We require that all china and glassware are returned rinsed and scraped of any food debris. If china and glassware come back with food or stains, there will be a fee of $1.00 per item to cover cleaning costs. All china and glassware must be returned in their original packaging or bins in order to avoid paying a replacement fee of $10.00 per bin.
In order to keep our chalkboards nice for all customers, chalkboard pens are not permitted to be used on our boards. You may only use real chalk on our boards. We know that real chalk can be sloppy and doesn't always write the nicest, so we've decided to offer the purchase of the chalkboard backing! By choosing this option, you can rent the frame that the board will be placed in, and purchase the actual chalkboard! Chalkboards are a great keepsake and after your event is over you get to take your board with you. Prices for the boards will vary on the size of the frame you wish to rent. Don't feel comfortable writing on your board? No problem! You show us a picture of what you would like, and we can custom create your board for you! Prices of a custom board will vary depending on your design.
When renting linens, we kindly ask that you DO NOT wash them. We like to take the best care of our linens and feel most comfortable washing them ourselves. If linens are returned with stains that do not come out after being washed, you may be charged with the replacement fee of the item. Candles should never be burned over top of our linens where wax can fall and damage them. If any linens are returned with wax stains, you will be charged with the replacement fee of the item. Sequin tablecloths and runners should never be put through any washing machine. We ask that if there is any icing or food stain on our sequin material you bring it back with the stain on and we will clean them for you! (these items are very expensive and we would hate to have to charge you with a replacement fee!) A cleaning fee will be charged upon ordering these items because they are very delicate and hard to clean.
We accept cash, check, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover). Checks should be made payable to Something Borrowed Events LLC. There is a $30.00 fee for all bounced checks.
