Read on for a few helpful tips for outdoor event success no matter the weather!

Make a rain plan

Outdoor Events in NashvilleBefore sending out any invitations, decide on a plan of action should bad weather occur.

What will you do in case of heavy rain?

Rent an outdoor tent

Figure out if there’s an indoor option or think about renting an event tent. By securing a tent, you will give your guests the opportunity to evade the elements and still enjoy your event.

With plenty of decorating opportunities and comfort that a tent offers, you will be happy you planned ahead to accommodate your guests.

Plan for wind

If you’re hosting a wedding, avoid light fabrics like chiffon which can get swept up in the breeze. For décor purposes, tie table cloths to the table base which give a sleek, pressed look and will stop them from flapping in the wind.

Consider an outdoor tent that has sidewalls! This will ensure that your outdoor event stays outdoors but is protected from the wind.

Tie down decor

Similarly, it’s important to make sure all decorations are tied down to prevent them from being taken up by a strong gust of wind. No one wants they’re hard work swept away like that and it’s not something you need to be dealing with the day-of.

In case of wind, pick heavier decorations and secure flowers with garland which can give them some weight.

Equipped with these tips and a reliable outdoor tent, you now will be fully prepared when bad weather strikes.
