Placing an Order
- What is included in a marquee light rental order?
- How much does a one-day rental cost?
- Are longer rental periods possible?
- Can I pick-up the lights myself instead of using your service?
- How do I reserve marquee lights for my event?
- How much deposit is required when I order?
- How far in advance of my event should I make a reservation?
- Do you ship lights to venues outside of your delivery area?
We want our lights to be both an exciting and effortless part of your event. A standard order includes use of your selected lights for up to 24 hours and our rental service. The service begins by coordinating all rental logistics in advance, including a visit to your venue if necessary. On the event date, we deliver, setup and breakdown your order within the agreed schedule.
Rental prices are determined mostly by the number of lights you order, which allows you to select a light combination that fits both your decor plans and your budget. Prices are also affected by bulb style and distance between your event and our Needham, MA location.
As an example, the price for a four light rental like LOVE would range from $565 to $655 before tax.
Yes. Multi-day rentals are also available at an additional cost.
To protect your liability and ours, we do not recommend self-service rentals. However, if we can agree in advance how you will protect and safely transport the lights, self-service rentals are possible.
After we confirm price and availability, we will send you a rental contract and deposit invoice. Your order will be reserved in our schedule when you have signed the contract and paid your invoice.
We require 50% deposit for orders placed more than one month in advance, with the balance due one month before your event. Orders placed less than one month before an event are payable in full at time of order.
We have a large inventory of lights so we can often fulfill requests close to an event date. However, we encourage you to reserve as early as possible to guarantee availability of the lights you select on your requested date.
No. We have found this to be cost-prohibitive and impractical for both us and clients. We are, however, actively working to make our lights available in other parts of the country through local affiliates. Check our Contact page for details.
Displaying the Lights
- How much space in my floor plan do the lights need?
- Are there any special power requirements?
- Do the lights need to be supported or propped up?
- Can the lights be placed on tables or other raised surfaces?
- Can the lights be used outdoors?
- Can I move the lights from one place to another during a rental?
- What if a bulb burns out during my rental?
The lights stand four feet tall and will range from two to three feet wide, so plan on three linear feet of floor space per letter when considering the placement in your floor plan.
No, our lights connect together and only require access to normal electrical sockets. Once the lights are connected together, only one or two sockets are usually required.
No. Our lights are 6 to 8 inches deep, so they are free-standing.
Each light is made from a substantial wood material and weighs between 30 and 50 pounds. The lights are designed to be floor-standing but may also be placed on certain raised surfaces. In these cases, we will work with you and your venue to identify a safe and suitable placement before the event.
Our lights are designed for indoor or sheltered outdoor use. Placing the lights in an unsheltered outdoor setting is possible as long as we define a 'plan B' placement with you and your venue for inclement weather.
For the protection of your liability and ours, we do not recommend moving the lights once our setup is complete unless we work out a plan together in advance to do so.
No worries! All rentals include a supply of spare bulbs just in case. During setup we make sure your venue or designated contact knows what to do if this happens.
