Tented weddings let you design your venue from the ground up, adding in flairs of your personality. Guests can enjoy the outdoors while feeling comfortable and protected from the sun and other elements. Adding a tent to your wedding creates an atmosphere of class and elegance, allowing nature to be a part of your décor.
Here is what you need to know to plan a tented wedding!
Select a style
Choose the best style of tent to match the theme and vibe of your wedding.
Pole tents create a sleek and elegant look with high ceilings that allow plenty of room for extra decorative lighting.
Frame tents lack a center pole, making them great for uneven surfaces and allowing plenty of room for seating and dancing.
Pick your size
Look to your guest list and consider your planned ceremony and reception activities to help you choose the proper size for your tent. Ensure you offer enough room for guests to be comfortable with your seating and dancing arrangements. Keep your tent small enough to avoid disrupting the atmosphere of a cozier, more intimate affair.
Add in accessories
Once you choose your tent, it is time to add some accessories. Incorporate a stage into your setup and light up your tent with string lights, chandeliers, or can lights. Add in your tables and chairs, decorated to your theme with aisle runners, gazebos, and wishing wells.
Watch the weather
Stay updated on the predicted weather conditions for your wedding day and have a plan in place for inclement weather. Add sidewalls or drapes to your tent to keep guests dry and comfortable. Beat the heat of the warmer months with large fans or warm your tent in cooler temperatures with heaters.
