Important Information and Instructions:

Outside Decorators:
If you, your family members and friends are opting to decorate yourself, or use your own decorator, such person(s) are also required
to abide by our guidelines, but you (the client) will be held responsible for damaged or missing items.
Room Readiness/Preparation:
If your facility provides the tables and chairs, and has agreed to set up the room, and it is not ready upon arrival, Simply Elegant may
have to simply drop off the items and proceed to another event, and no refunds will be issued for paid setup fees. If time permits, we
will setup the room and you will be billed the additional labor charge. We cannot keep other clients waiting. It is our goal to perform
the paid task, but if it depends on the room being ready, it is out of our control. It is important for these details to be settled ahead of
time. Please provide a telephone number for your Coordinator or family member who is in charge on the day of the wedding to
discuss these types of issues, should they arise.
Name______________________________________#________________________
If no adult representative of your party is available to make a decision on your behalf, do you authorize Simply Elegant to setup what
is necessary to complete the task, if the room is not ready, and do you agree to pay for the additional labor? If left blank, we will
simply drop off the items and proceed to the next event.
Yes ________ (Initial Here)         No __________ (Initial Here)

Table Cleanliness/Quality Control
If, upon arrival, SEW discovers that tables, containers or other items require cleaning before we can properly setup your rentals,
SEW will charge your account for cleaning and preparing the necessary areas/items. We will not install linens on soiled or damaged
tables, as they may stain or stag.
Candelabras:
Candles are not included with the rental. Only drip-less or mechanical candles may be used on our taper candelabras. If candelabras
are returned with wax residue, a $25 cleanup fee per candelabra will be assessed. Unity Candles are keepsake items and are not
included with Unity Stand rentals. Wrought Iron Candelabras do not include pillar candles, but are available for rent or purchase.
Pricing and sizes are listed on our website under
"candelabra accessories".
Chair Covers:
SEW is not responsible for damages resulting from improper use of chair covers. For Example: Chair covers can become crowded
when too many chairs are placed around a table, and your guests will inadvertently step on each others chair covers or rip them
when they get up.

Ensure Proper Fit:
Please be sure of the style and size of the chair at your facility. Banquet chair covers do not fit folding chairs, and vice versa. It is
important to find out at least 90 days in advance about your chair style, so that we may reserve them out of our stock accordingly. If
SEW discovers that the chair covers were used improperly, we will seek compensation on replacement of the damaged chair covers.
This includes: rips, snags, stains, and seams ripping etc.
Condition:
Since SEW does have a strict damage policy, our chair covers are in new, excellent or good condition when rented to our customer.
Condition of the cover depends on the length of service of the chair cover. Small discrepencies or shoe marks on the bottom of the
chair cover are normal and you will not be charged for covers returned in good condition with minimal shoe markings. So
understanding these rules, please do not call us complaining of a tiny unnoticeable mark on the bottom part of your rented chair
cover.
Damage to Linens:
Linen Damage- Wax:
If damage or stains occur which require extra cleaning, client will be notified and billed of such services within 10 days after the event.
Such damages would include
wax stains. This is the most common cause of damages to linens. All candles must be in a glass
container or set on a mirror, candle stand, glass or protective cover to eliminate wax spills on the linen. No candles are to be placed
directly on the linen without an appropriate holder. If burns occur, the item is considered damaged, and must be replaced. If there
are any wax stains at all, even a small dot,  the item will be considered damaged and will also need to be replaced.
Linen Damage: Ink:
Ink and marker stains will not come out, so please do not provide coloring books for children on tables that you have rented linens
for. Butcher paper from the craft store is more appropriate. You can still create a centerpiece for the childrens table to tie it in with
your other guest tables and put their table in an obscure area of the room.
Linen Damage- Chocolate Fountains:
For clients renting linens: Simply Elegant offers a plastic table covering rental for $8. to be used under the chocolate fountain. This
will prevent permanent damage to our linen and possible replacement fees to your account. If the client refuses the covering, the
client assumes full responsibility for the chocolate stains and the replacement fee starting at $40-$80 for each table linen affected.
Misuse of Items:
Upon pickup or delivery, If Simply Elegant perceives that misuse will occur, we will NOT release the items, and no refunds will be
issued. Examples would be: Poor condition of equipment, no adults present to accept delivery, or improper or unsafe vehicle.
Food and Beverage Equipment:
Does not include:
 setup of the items on the tables, napkin folding, food  handling, catering duties of any kind, including: table
bussing, replacing glassware, dinnerware or flatware back into crates, beverage handling or setup of coffee urn or punch fountain.
Caterer must monitor glassware/flatware usage and replenish the buffet/guest tables as needed.
Self Cleanup: All items must be free of debris and liquids before returning. Catering items such as fountains, urns, chafing dishes or
other must be rinsed before returning. Please discuss these services with your food provider. If the items are left in a full/dirty state,
SEW will charge a fee starting at $10 per item. Please do not take apart beverage fountains. Small parts are easy to lose and
expensive to replace.
