Whether it’s part of your theme for an outdoor wedding or a just-in-case rental while you hope it doesn’t rain, there’s more to tenting your wedding than just installing a structure and calling it a day. Tents also play a significant impact on your wedding design. For example, a cloth wedding tent and a clear wedding tent create different backdrops for your celebration. However, tenting your wedding doesn’t have to be a headache. Keep reading for more reasons to rent a tent for your wedding.
Keep Guests Dry
Outdoor weddings incorporate nature and make for unique, atmospheric celebrations. Unfortunately, rain’s always possible, even if the forecast didn’t call for it. A tent can alleviate that stress by protecting you and your guests from inclement weather. If it’s raining, everyone can stay dry underneath the tent. If it’s hot and sunny, the tent can equally protect guests from getting too hot and risking heat stroke or sunburn.
Most tents allow for a good-sized guest list, so you can invite many family and friends. Renting a tent from Historic Oakland Manor accommodates a capacity of 172. Since you are outside, you may bring the dog or other family pet, depending on the venue’s rules. Besides the guests and tables and chairs, most tents can accommodate a dance floor, DJ table, buffet tables, and other amenities.
An outdoor venue gives you much more freedom to decorate however you want. The tent is a blank slate, with no pre-existing decorations you need to match. Instead, you have the complete freedom to choose the decorations for your wedding. With neutral colors and minimal decorations, the possibilities are endless. Flowers, balloons, and colored lights or lanterns transform the space under the tent. If you want to add fun to the event, you can set up lawn activities like corn hole, hula hoops, or horseshoes if the venue allows it.
A Tent Can Reduce Stress
With an outdoor wedding, the weather is a source of stress because it’s a major unknown that could significantly impact your wedding day. You have to plan everything for your wedding so far in advance that more accurate weather forecasts won’t be available until it’s too late to make any changes. A tent can reduce that stress by eliminating the problem. It doesn’t matter if the weather is unknown when the tent can protect your guests in all kinds of weather.
Historic Oakland offers a tent package that includes the rental of the house and tent and basic equipment needed for your special occasion. If you want to rent a tent for your wedding, speak with Historic Oakland staff for more information and pricing.
