  • I used WTO for all of my linens. I shopped around 10 other vendors and they were the friendliest with the best value. Fairrus listened to my needs and helped me choose linens that fit my vision and budget. I am very pleased with the linens at my wedding!

  • I have nothing but great things to say about Fairrus and her business! She was recommended to be me by my wedding planner and from day one, she was extremely helpful and kind during my wedding planning process. I met with her multiple times to review our selections for our big day and she was willing and eager every time! Even when I was making last minute additions, everything was in place! My now husband and I wanted to do a first look of our ballroom before guest entered....it was a fairytale! She transformed the ballroom with all the linens and decor! I can't thank her enough for making our day extra special and beautiful! She is a true gem!

  • Loved this team of designers! They executed my dream and made my wedding day more than I could’ve asked for. So flexible and patient and helpful with everything!!

  • I love Fair Fairrus, She has definitely been a Godsend for me and my clients! If used her services for a number of events since 2015 and she has not let me down yet! She is a sweetheart and very professional, accommodating, very knowledgeable in everything linen, she has an amazing eye! I love the fact that her company is family oriented and her husband and her son are there with her to assist with some of her jobs! I would definitely recommend What's the Occasion to all my clients and to anyone looking for high quality top of the line linens and decor!

  • Never have I ever been so impressed with a company and the selfless-lessness of an owner! My wife and I were provided Presidential treatment and we only saw a very small percentage of what "What's the Occasion," Linen & Decor Rentals in Houston can do....IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO ORCHESTRATE YOUR OCCASION...this company is Highly recommended!

  • My daughter's wedding was approaching and we had yet to decide on whether or not to rent a few items. On the Monday before the wedding, I searched the web to determine which company had our items of interest at a fair price. Fairrus was magnificent! She not only had the items at a great price, including delivery and pick up but made a few suggestions which were even better than what we had envisioned. She was warm and very reassuring which helped diminish my anxiety and stress level. Due to time constraints, I could not visit her showroom to pick out the items, so she photographed and emailed them to me so I could make a decision. The items arrived on time which allowed the Houstonian to set up the ballroom that afternoon.

  • Whats The Occasion is such an amazing company. I have worked with them numerous times and every time has been wonderful! They have a great selection of linens that is unmatched. They keep expanding their selection too and always have new and trendy items. I don't even live in Houston but I travel to Houston just to use Whats The Occasion. Fairrus is absolutely wonderful to work with as well! Thanks for the great service and great items!
