Wedding Tents: 5 Things You Need To Know

When tents were announced the number one rented item for weddings in 2014, the first thing that came to mind was a small camping tent that smells like campfire and no matter how hard you try you can’t keep the dirt out! Today's event tents are nothing like a camping tent. The technology has really expanded past a center pole and framework with thick bulky canvas draped around the frame. Today's events tent designers have made beautiful dance floors, entrances, and walkways. Today’s tents range from ballrooms to tents with lighting and electricity!

We have gathered up five amazing things you should know about renting a tent for your big day:

    Don’t Confuse A Tent And A Canopy – The biggest misconception is that these two are the same thing. Canopies only have outer poles, no middle pole, making the celling very low. Tents have center poles allowing for higher ceilings.

You Can Have Multiple Rooms In A Tent – You can have unlimited rooms and chambers with tents. You may want to have a dance floor in one room, your wedding cake and presents in a separate room, and even bathrooms in a different tent or room. Have changing rooms for the bride and bridesmaids.

Tents Don’t Look Like Tents - Todays tents look nothing like a traditional tent! You can have windows, interior walls, dance floors, and chandeliers! Tent designers have disguised the poles and anchor points so your guests will never notice.

Have The Comfort Of A Subfloor –, Everyone who has an outdoor wedding knows that you are at the mercy of the weather. Dew on the grass can become slippery or muddy. If the ground is really dry, you may experience dust rising from the floor, and that could be bad for your catering efforts. Today’s tents come with the option of laying down a subfloor with the options of hardwood, carpet and vinyl.

Large Tents May Require Permits –, depending on your location, you may need a permit to set up your party tent. Check with the locations municipalities on required permits to erect your tent. The last thing you want on your big day is a huge fine or having someone cut your reception short because of a permit issue.
