    More than expected

    We booked 2 tents and vendor management with Chelsea. We only booked two weeks ahead and they help set up our entire reception. Everything was ready when we arrived at our backyard reception. The tents definitely helped on the hot summer day. They even set up our favors in our initials which was a nice unexpected touch.

    Amazing Service & Incredible People to Work With!

    The team at River City is absolutely incredible to work with! From the first phone call I made, to tear down at 2am on the wedding night, they were a dream to work with. I never had a doubt about anything with them and would absolutely recommend them to anyone with a wedding or an event in the Edmonton area! Thank you, Chelsea and the RCE team for being amazing people!!

    Excellent service

    Cynthia was my coordinator for my wedding. She did an amazing job. River city events has been nothing but helpful. Cynthia offered great advice and she was able to meet all of our needs. Even with last minute requests she was able to handle. I would highly recommend River City Events.

    Wedding rental

    Overall, my experience with Rivercity Events was outstanding. The only issue I had is that I left a voicemail on the emergency number and never did receive a phonecall in response. The message was left after business hours and I felt it was an emergency as I would be on my honeymoon when the office was open. Other than that, each time I spoke with someone they were very pleasant and accommodating and when items I had ordered were overbooked, I received an upgrade at no extra charge. I have no hesitation in recommending Rivercity Events

    Waiting for refund

    Still waiting on a refund from months ago. Our wedding was cancelled due to COVID and according to our signed contract we cancelled with this vendor before the deadline to get a full refund. We have asked them for it multiplied times and are still waiting to see it months later.

    River City Events's reply:

    Good Morning Lisa, Thank you for the follow up on the status of your refund. Unfortunately Covid hit the events industry, business and individuals very hard and due to this issue our team was reduced and working remotely to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. We have been back to operational since the stages have opened and are working on refunding our clients. Due to the high amounts of refunds, we are currently processing March and April requests in August. We can confirm that your refund will be completed next week back on the credit card on file and an email notification will be sent once this is completed for your records.
    We thank you for your patience as everyone is trying to move forward from this. Should you have any questions or require anything else, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 780.424.6001. Thank you very much.

    Great Team!

    We rented from River City Rentals for our wedding this June and everything was delivered on time and as expected. Their team was always great to deal with over the phone and I would definitely recommend them.

    The staff were organized, and kind, and the actual product was amazing. The company was accommodating with drop of an pick up times of the rentals, and friendly at every step of the process. I would definitely use the services of river city rentals again.

    Wonderful company to deal with. They prepared everything I needed and made last minute adjustments to my order the week of my wedding. It was great customer service.
