I'm so happy I found Joanne's Event Rentals! The price of the chair covers and sashes beat everywhere else in town. I was also looking for gold chargers and after talking to Joanne, she decided to purchase them to have available for rent and again, beat the rental price of anywhere else in the area. Joanne was very accommodating and worked with us on set up and returning everything to her. She was very quick to respond to me via phone, email and text and even texted me pictures of our reception space the night before our wedding after she tied about 220 sashes by herself! It looked amazing and we received so many compliments! Joanne was great to work with and I definitely recommend her to anyone looking to rent event décor.

My Lighted Curtain provided the perfect atmosphere for my son and daughter in law's wedding reception held at Copper Creek Events Center in 2012.  The lighted curtain added warmth and gave the head table an elegant frame.  The customer service Joanne provides is excellent; she sets up and takes down, effortless on your part.  My Lighted Curtain and Joanne Friedman are the perfect solution to wedding reception needs!

Joanne's chair covers absolutely transformed my daughter's reception! The ballroom went from very nice to WOW! The room looked like a designer had put it together. My team of friends who put the covers on said the transformation was quick and easy! Joanne took a personal interest in our celebration and was so organized. She had the covers and sashes in easy-to-carry totes that made our pick-up and return a cinch! And... her price is so fair and affordable!

"It was the perfect backdrop for our head table and cake table. The lights and curtain lit up the room and added a very romantic scene. The curtain helped to make some very memorable wedding pictures."

My Lighted Curtain added that touch of class needed for the gala celebration hosted by the Ankeny Area Chamber of Commerce.  Joanne's lighted curtain provided the perfect backdrop for pictures.  The chair covers gave the ballroom an impressive ambiance taking our event from formal to elaborate and elegant.

After seeing the lighted curtains at a friend's wedding, I knew that we just had to have them!  I contacted Joann at Rent My Lighted Curtain and was amazed at how easy she was to work with.  She worked with our venue people to make sure that the look would be perfect (which it did), set it up and tore it down, which was one less thing we had to worry about.  I would highly recommend Rent My Lighted Curtain for any event that needs that extra touch!! 


Last minute we decided to add the backdrop to our reception and we were so glad we did. To see what a room looks like before the lights and after is amazing! We had many compliments on how it added to the room and changed the way it looked dramatically. I would definitely recommend working with Joanne, she was very helpful and easy to work with!! We loved the lighted backdrop!”

My son and his fiance really wanted chair covers for their reception, but with 350 people I just couldn't justify the cost. 3 weeks before the wedding, I happened to get on Craigs List and found these chair covers to rent for a quarter of what others were wanting. The spandex chair covers are much more attractive than the others that you just hang over the chair. Plus, they had the sashes as well REALLY cheap. Joanne was great to work with and went above and beyond to deliver the chair covers and sashes the morning we were setting up. We got so many compliments and everyone thought we spent so much money!! It was gorgeous! Renting the chair covers by far was the best deal I got for the wedding.


Joanne was great to work.  She was very supportive and very encouraging during the planning process of the wedding.  She was very professional yet caring from one mom to another as she's been through the wedding planning herself for her family.  So she knows what we all go through to get through the big event.  Her rates were very reasonable.  Her communication with me prior and after the event was exactly what I expected and more.


My son wasn't exactly wanting the chair covers, but since I convinced him otherwise, he was very, very happy with how everything looked once the event chairs were all covered with the white covers and black sashes.  He helped cover them and tie the bows.  The words "elegant" and "classy" were used by many people as they complimented how everything looked.  That made me feel like everyone enjoyed themselves and the event went well!  Thank you so much Joanne!  I'll keep you in mind for future events!  Great job!

After a great deal of research we determined that stretch/fitted chair covers would work best for the wedding reception we were hosting for our son and daughter-in-law.  The covers were received clean and organized; we found them to be quite easy to place on the chairs and with the sash also ordered, they made the table settings/seating look crisp and quite elegant.  We could not have been happier with the covers and found them to be well worth the cost.
