Have You Considered a Wedding Tent?

The tent has come a long way since its humble beginnings. While a wedding tent might make you think of a rustic camping or circus-themed wedding, a big top can be super elegant, sophisticated, as well as affordable.
Often made of light parachute material and decked out with a hundred electric lights, the effect can be quite magical. The sides of the tent make silhouettes look dramatic and are great for romantic photographs. If you can't decide between an outdoor and indoor venue, a tent may be the perfect middle ground.
Here are some things to consider before booking a rental. A tent is a great back up plan if you're considering an outside wedding. However, if your venue can be windy, check to see how much wind your tent can withstand. Also, make sure the floor is not sand or dirt, because the ground can become muddy and gross. If there are multiple weddings on the same day, talk to the couple directly before or after your wedding to see if they want to share the cost. Remember to talk to the venue about logistics such as bathrooms, extension cords, generators, and getting to and from the venue. For instance, if it pours and guests have to walk a hundred feet to the bathroom, it will be super inconvenient and people will end up getting wet.
A wedding tent is a great choice for a budget wedding if planned properly . In fact, the labor involved in putting up a tent might cost more than the actual rental. Rent a dance floor as well for a complete set up.
