A lot can go wrong at an outdoor wedding – torrential downpour, Houston’s awful summer heat, pesky bugs… you name it! And while our number one reason to opt for a tent rental is shielding guests from the elements, there are actually a variety of reasons to consider renting a tent for your outdoor wedding day beyond that. Read on to get Avalon Event Rentals‘ expert tips not only on why to rent, but which type you may need.
1. Ensure party guests are dry and in the shade
Tent rentals safeguard guests from the uncooperative weather, such as the rain and the hot sun. Your guests are impeccably dressed for the occasion, and you don’t want to ruin that by getting them drenched in the rain or grilled in the heat.
There are different tent solutions for your guests to comfortably enjoy the moment. You have a choice of open tents such as a pole, marquee or frame tent or a closed tent like a structure tent. Tent rentals can also have climate control equipment to manage the mood.
2. Sets a Romantic Backdrop
Tents easily turn a location into a picturesque, romantic backdrop for special events like a wedding. Whether you’re doing it in your own backyard, in a grassland or any place that seems too plain, a tent adds grandeur to this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
Your tent rental suppliers will have a catalogue of specialized tents and packages that will suit every romantic style you want to create. Ask for a frame and marquee tents that will give you a classic sentimental backdrop, transforming your wedding into a dreamy fairytale.
3. Keep the Gathering Private and Intimate
Your rented tents keep your guests in defined spaces, creating an appearance of intimacy while providing privacy. An outdoor space can be very vast. Without a tent to keep everyone in place, the celebration can look unfriendly and chaotic. It’ll also be too easy for outsiders to peek or crash the affair.
Imagine a corporate activity or a wedding with the attendants and guests scattered around. To avoid a fiasco, get a structure tent with solid side walls or those with windows that keep things extra private, cozy and fun.
4. Presents a Canvass for Lights and Decorations
Made usually in white, tents accentuate lights and decorations, allowing your party theme to bloom. Of course, you can have colored ones to make your event pop a little more. But, a tent independently builds a space for elaborate decorations. Add a dance floor and a few twinkling lights, you’ll get yourself an affair your guests can’t help but talk about.
Apart from the main tent, we also have tent accessories to jazz up the interior space. There are chandeliers, post lights, gobo lights, stage, and pipes and drapes to set up a gorgeous venue.
5. Flexible Event Elements
Usually, renting tents for your wedding won’t tie you down with venue schedules and venue-and-catering packages. When you book a venue like a hotel, vineyard or resort, you might have to compromise dates because of availability. Worse, you may also have to let go of your favorite caterer because the venue only accepts certain vendors, in-house catering or has specific packages.
You can have all of the elements for the affair work for you by getting tent rentals. With their services limited to tents, furniture, lights and other accessories, you’ll have greater liberty to mix-and-match with other event suppliers like caters and florists.
