Renting a tent for an outdoor wedding is like providing insurance for your ceremony and reception. Along with other party rentals like outdoor dance floors, you can host your wedding outdoors in pandemic conditions – or in inclement weather.
Renting a Tent Protects Your Guests
While we think about waterproof tent rentals being ideal for sheltering you, your guests, and the DJ’s equipment from rain, renting a tent also protects your wedding party and guests from other elements that can ruin good moods and photo opportunities.
Elements of nature such as bird droppings and falling leaves can creep into any outdoor setting and make their way into your photos. Avoid leafy hair and embarrassment with a tent. Additionally, for daytime weddings, the sun can be an issue, especially in the summer months. Protect skin from the sun’s harmful rays and avoid sunglasses in photographs with an outdoor tent.
Tent Rentals and Temperature Control
Along with heat and rain comes the issue of temperature. Some outdoor tent rentals have walls, while others are open air. Wired fans or outdoor heating devices work well with outdoor tents, as they tend to trap air at the top.
For concerns during the pandemic or weddings during a hot season, outdoor tents without walls include a great deal of cross-ventilation. You can also decrease the temperature by a few degrees due to the shade that the tent provides. For even cooler conditions, place the wedding tent rental under a tall tree.
Consider Lighting for Photos and Videos
Wedding ceremonies and receptions often go late into the evening, meaning photographers need to adjust their lenses and other equipment depending upon lighting conditions. When renting a tent, you can control the lighting to a degree. During the day, the tent shades your wedding party from the sun and from harsh shadows in photos.
At night, you can use wired lighting, candlelight, and fairy or string lights to create the right mood and notify your photographer and videographer of expected lighting prior to the event.
Plan it Perfectly: Rent From One Event Rental Company
When it comes to ensuring there’s enough room under your tent for all your guests, tables, chairs, and potentially a stage, it makes the most sense to rent all your equipment from the same event rental company. Whether you’re hosting a large wedding or need to abide by social distancing guidelines, your local event rental company can help you do the math to ensure you have enough room for everything under your tent.
Your event rental company can also help you with accessories for your tent, whether you’re ready to showcase evening lighting, faux foliage, or celebratory decorations. Since planning a party includes hundreds of details for the couple or wedding planner, it makes sense to shop in chunks. Rent your table, chairs, and linens from the same company and ask them for recommendations on other components of your wedding, such as decorations, activities, and food.
Your event rental company can also help you with chair covers, banquet tables, bar stool rentals, a dance floor, and napkins. You can do most of this online, like 93% of brides who use the internet for the majority of their wedding planning.
