Excellent!

Throughout the entire process, the team helped me continuously make edits to my order and provided fabulous recommendations. They were always pleasant to speak with and my wedding couldn't have looked better! I would definitely use them again for any large event where chairs, tables, tents, etc. were needed.

Amazing service!

Dover Tents is amazing! I used them to rent a tent for my wedding. Meghan Garrison was the direct contact I had. She was quick to respond and always attentive to anything I needed or changes I made! I highly recommend Dover Tents. The tent was beautiful and I got a lot of compliments on it!

Meghan and the staff at Dover Tents and Events ALWAYS deliver exactly what I need...and I know that whatever is coming from them will be in great condition and ready to go. Meghan is great when meeting with brides, and helps to gently guide them and make suggestions that pull everything together for them. The new satellite office at the beach is definitely a plus for couples who are planning a destination wedding. I do work with other rental companies, but my first suggestion and preferred vendor is always Dover!
