Save Your Wedding By Renting a Tent

Why renting a tent is great for your wedding.

Deciding to hold your nuptials at an outdoor wedding venue is a wonderful way to celebrate your big day. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to deal with certain outdoor elements that could make things a little tricky. Let’s take a look at how renting a tent can save your wedding.


Keep Guests Safe from Weather

If you’re going to have your nuptials outdoors, it’s a good idea to rent a wedding tent. No matter the number of people, you’ll be able to protect them from a variety of weather conditions, especially the hot Florida sun. You can also add on tent accessories like sidewalls, fans, and AC units to help keep everyone cool when the weather is warm outside.


Protect Wedding from Pests

One thing that an outdoor wedding will often need to worry about is insects such as flies and mosquitoes. Renting a tent will help you create a barrier between these annoying pests and your wedding guests. You can also use the same tent accessories that are meant to protect you from weather to help keep pests at bay.


Easier to Stay Organized

Tented weddings are a lot easier to keep organized because the tents give you a specific area to put everything. It allows you to strategically place items such as tables and chairs, in addition to a stage, dance floor, and any other area that you’d like to designate. This allows for a cleaner, more professional appearance that your guests will appreciate.


Provides Additional Privacy 

Depending on where you decide to hold your wedding, there may be the opportunity for prying eyes to watch the proceedings without being invited. In some circumstances, you may even find yourself dealing with wedding crashers. Tents will allow you to create a barrier between the wedding and anyone else who might find themselves close to the event.


Perfect for a Dance Floor

As briefly mentioned above, one of the items that he may want to put inside your tent is a dance floor. After all, many traditional weddings include a first dance for the bride and groom, along with guests being invited to dance after the initial song. A tent also gives you plenty of room to set up audio equipment that you can hook up to an iPod or other device.


Saves You Money and Time

Most people don’t want to go out and purchase their own tent for a wedding or other event because then you have to deal with storage even though you may not ever use it again. Renting a tent will not only save you money, but it will also save you time. That’s because the tent rental company will come out to the location of the wedding and get it set up for you so that you don’t have to do the hard work yourself.


Great for the Reception, Too

If you want to make things easier for everyone involved, then you should consider having the ceremony and reception at the same place. Simply rent an especially large tent and split it up into sections or rent two different tents and place them side by side. This will allow you to use the same beautiful wedding venue for both parts of the nuptials and make it much easier on guests because they won’t have to travel somewhere else.
