Final/remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the event date. All final changes must be made no later than 10 days prior to the event date.
REVISIONS TO YOUR ORDER
You can revise your exact guest count 10 days prior to your event date, not to exceed 30% reduction from your orignal guest count. (example if your rented 100 chairs and now only need 95 chairs) you will only pay for what you need to match your guest count. At anytime you can add additional items to your order (subjected to availability). Specialty items and linen orders cannot be changed once order is processed (minimum 2 weeks in advance).
