  • Distinctive Events has been a HUGE help for my past two events. They provided rentals for my wedding, as well as my parents 25th anniversary 3 years later. I will continue to use and recommend them as I always have. Norma always looks out for the customer first both in requests and in price. She makes great recommendations and always looks out for the customer's interest first. Love these guys!!! She even came in on the weekend to help us out in a pinch!

  • Everything from the selections with the salesperson to the delivery and pick-up was perfect and done at such a reasonable price. This is the second time I have used them for weddings and couldn't be more pleased.

  • We used DER for our lighting for our wedding and it was perfect! They are so easy to work with and really try to help you stay on your budget! Great for big jobs or just a quick rental for a party!

  • I worked with Norma at Distinctive to choose our rentals and she was great. I was a little overwhelmed by the all of the details that I had to choose to pull our reception look together but she made the process fun and easy. We literally had to rent everything for our reception (china, silver, glassware, stemware, salt and pepper shakers, etc) and we were able to get the look we wanted as Distinctive had the best selection to choose from and the best prices (I did a lot of research before choosing who to go with). They are also very connected within the Virginia/NC wedding industry which made setting up all of the logistics very easy which was important since we did not use a wedding coordinator.

  • This company is wonderful. Used them for my daughter's wedding in our backyard and we couldn't have been happier with the result. The owner came out and made recommendations and was more concerned with the comfort of our guest then making a sale. His staff that came out to put up the tent, table, & chairs were top notch. Very easy to work with, courteous and professional. They came very highly recommended by the caterers we used as well as some of the other vendors. I will only use Distinctive Event Rentals when I have another entertaining event. Thanks to all of their staff for making this special occasion carefree.

  • We used Distinctive for our October 2012 wedding. We rented a dance floor, table linens, cake stand, and trash cans. They delivered the day before the wedding and picked everything up on Monday. They do offer Sunday pickup for an extra fee which was not bad considering it is their day off. I called many times to add things and take things away but they never got frustrated with me and were very helpful! In the end, they actually owed me money (because I ended up not needing a couple things) and I received my refund check fairly quickly.

  • We recently had an event for 150 people on the water in Dare County North Carolina. Distivctive Rentals of Chesapeake provided us with a Clear Top Tent, stand up tables and large round tables with chairs. They also provided us with a stage and sound equipment. We also rented glasses, table cloths and ties. The staff at Distinctive Rentals helped us with the selection process and the President of the Company came to the site to be sure the approporiate tent was being used and that additional marquee tents would be sufficient to provide protection from inclement weather. The professionals at Distinctive Rentals could not have been more helpfu. We received so many wonderful comments on the decor and the tent which was spectacular even though the weather was not cooperating. Holding an event for 150+ people is not easy, but in our case, it was made a lot easier by the professionalism, thoughtfulness and attention to detail we received from Laura and Bill at Distinctive Rentals.

  • I had my whole wedding planned when I met the representatives from Distinctive Events at a bridal show in Norfolk, VA. I even had contracts for furnsihings with another company. After meeting Norma, I changed my mind on everything. I had a new vision and Distinctive Events had everything I needed. I went to the showroom and could put my hands on EVERYTHING I NEEDED. They even let me walk through the warehouse and that is where I found more ideas. Norma was very helpful by giving me her input and suggestions on how to use things to help my vision. We instantly formed a bond. She was very flexible in constructing my contract that I could add, delete, change, make payments and everything. I thought I was bothering her with all my questions, adds and deletes but everytime I called she was just as willing to help as the day I met her. She even called me a few times just to make sure everything was going well and that I had everything I needed. The day before the wedding, when eve... Read more

  • While attempting to figure out what I wanted, a lady was nice enough to give me as sample to take home. I called back and told them I like the scuba chair covers. On the day before my wedding they delivered the wrong ones. They refused to come and pick them up so my bridesmaid had to drive 40 min to p/u. They also did not raise the poor and despite to the hieght needed so, my fiance had to raise it all by himself.

  • I used Distinctive Event Rentals for my wedding in June 2013. They had a great selection of items and Ms. Norma spent a great deal of time helping me pick out items. Everything went together flawlessly! They delivered on time, with no errors. I would recommend their services to any Bride!!

  • Distinctive Event Rentals was outstanding. Our wedding was held during a Tropical Storm warning, and they did everything possible to accommodate the venue when the weather did not cooperate.

  • I rented tables, chairs, and a dance floor. The tables and chairs were great. The dance floor was not put together properly, and we had to take part of it apart and put it back together. For the amount we spent on the floor, I felt it should have been put together with a little more care and not have the edges all coming off. The girls in the office that we scheduled with were excellent. However the guys dropping off the equipment, not so much. I heard them complain on multiple occasions about having to go the the second floor of the house and that it should have an elevator. It was nice having someone drop everything off and pick it up.

  • Distinctive was professional and on time with their delivery. They were missing a few things we ordered but did deliver them Saturday morning before the wedding. The tent with liner was beautiful. The linens were sort of crazy labeled and one would think there would be a better way of labeling/organizing them but maybe not. Our points of contact at the office were responsive and friendly. Our experience was pleasant and I'd recommend them again.
