Need Help Planning that Special Event in Chesapeake VA and Hampton Roads?

Distinctive Event Rentals Event Planning Specialists Are Here to Help You.

Whether you are planning a wedding, reception, company event, banquet, sporting event, festival, grand opening or other type of special event, the event specialists at Distinctive Event Rentals can assist with planning your event.

Planning any event can be an enjoyable activity, but it takes time and knowledge to have a successful and rewarding event. The more elaborate the event, the more planning may be required. Events can be an important part of any business plan and if it’s a wedding, it can be the most important day in a couple’s life.

Every event – whether it be in a catering hall, outdoor venue, or your own backyard – has a unique set of challenges and opportunities to make it "your own." Our event specialists are trained to guide you through the process to incorporate all the rental items – obvious and maybe not so obvious – you will need to make an event run smoothly and to make it memorable. We also offer tips in planning other areas of your event as well.

For example: You are having an outdoor event and you need a dance floor. Does that mean you need a stage or riser for a band? What type of dance floor is suited to outdoors? What type of dance floor goes well with your theme? The Event Specialists at Distinctive Event Rentals can help you navigate through the many moving parts of event planning with our expert advice and attention to detail.


Our services include consultation, coordination with other event providers, and delivery, set-up, & pick-up of rentals. We also offer specialized lighting design and power distribution. We have a vast list of resources for event locations, caterers, photographers, florists, decorators, and other event services.
