A wedding tent comes in handy to those wish to throw a big outdoor ceremony or event. It does not matter if the ceremony will take place in your backyard or a private park. You want to have enough space where the guests can mingle and eat. Also, it protects the guests from extreme weather elements such as the scorching sun or the unprecedented rain.
With the right tent, you will be able to achieve the wedding ceremony/reception of your dreams. However, there are a few things that need to be considered before getting that wedding tent:
The majority of the people will rent the tents as it’s a cheaper option. The renting price varies depending on the size and the maximum number of people it can accommodate. Buying the tents for a single occasion may not be a viable option.
For those who choose to have an outdoor and tented event, what tent type would you choose? Is there any particular reason for choosing that particular type?
There are a plethora of tents to choose from. The Kingpin has listed the most popular tents and where they are best used.
As the name suggests, this kind of tent is supported by guy wires and poles. It has big showy top bearing one or more peaks. They are beautiful and elegant thereby creating a sophisticated look.
One major limitation of the pole tents is that they cannot be used on hard surfaces and concrete surfaces as they must be staked to the ground. It makes less versatile compared to other tent types.
Unlike the pole tent, the frame tent uses the metal frame for support. The tent is free standing making it ideal for use on most solid surfaces. It’s as beautiful and sophisticated as the pole tent, but it’s very versatile.
The metal pipes inside the tent are exposed and can be left in that state. They can be used to hang decorations and lights. Alternatively, they can be hidden by layers of draped fabrics.
It’s a cross between the frame and pole tent. It has the convenience of the frame tent (free standing metal tent) and the aesthetic value of the peaked roof of the pole tent. You get the best of both worlds.
The sailcloth tent is becoming a popular choice. It’s a variation of the pole tent that uses the sailcloth material and has wooden poles to support its weight. The pole tent is made from vinyl.
The sailcloth is a translucent material that adds a beautiful glow to the tent’s interior. Also; it has a soaring ceiling and curved lines that make an ideal choice for any occasion. However, it requires extensive staking, and it’s not ideal for all surfaces.
Those who love watching stars will fall in love with the clear tent. Dining and dancing under the stars are a bonus while gaining protection from extreme weather element. It’s an ideal option for people who do not want a tent, yet it’s too practical to lack one.
This kind of tent varies in style. It consists of a light and translucent fabric that is draped on the bamboo/wooden frame. The tent offers an aesthetic appeal. However, it offers little or no protection from extreme weather elements. It’s ideal for beach events.
It’s a pole tent that is dressed up in white and red striped fabric. They are ideal where large numbers of people are expected.
It’s usually a pole or marquee tent style. It’s adorned with beautiful fabrics and trims instead of the usual white vinyl. This kind of tent is available for hire on selected rental companies. Lighting, décor, and additional draping may be needed to complete the look.
It was styled and named after the native America teepee and Nordic Sami. The tent offers a unique shape, interesting look, and a cozy environment. They come in various configurations and sizes making them ideal for small and large weddings. Also, they have a beautiful aesthetic, just like the sailcloth and pole tent, at an additional cost for the supporting poles.
The yurt was used as a portable dwelling in the past. However, it has recently gained popularity in England and Canada as a wedding and events tent. It’s made of lattice walls, a wood ribbed roof and crown and is covered in fabric. Thanks to their small size, they are not ideal for large weddings. They are perfect for cozy and intimate affairs.
Weddings are a big deal. They only happen once. It calls for perfection, no compromises. Surprises are bound to sneak up when planning tented weddings or reception. Here are few tips to avoid being thrown into the loop.
For instance, if one having a wedding on their property, ensure you alert the neighbors. While at it, bake some cookies and deliver to the neighbors as you inform them of the impending event. A little kindness will stop them from calling the cops on you.
The day may start bright and shiny only to turn rainy and cloudy later in the day. It may be a simple plan as having umbrellas or having an indoor backup location. Make the weather channel a friend way before and during the wedding day.
Leaving out small details may be disastrous. Ensure the space being used for the event has enough space to handle the guests. It should have enough restroom to handle the guest count. Before the event, find out if they have an alternative power source in case the power goes off. Let’s not forget the parking space.
Ensure the area is well leveled. No tents should be placed on the septic systems. Turn off the sprinklers on the big day.
The wise man once said no man is an island. Planning a wedding is no easy task. The importance of having a support team cannot be underestimated. Get a support team that has done the work before as they will offer valuable advice.
