The demand for wedding rentals is highest in the spring and summer. The options for venues, from the rustic barns to open fields, are endless. To make the event as comfortable as possible and shelter your guests from the elements, choosing the right tent rental is necessary. Here are some factors you should consider in choosing one:

Style: Weddings are the event of a lifetime, so pick a tent that can offer a visually appealing backdrop, especially in pictures. Consider the wedding theme and what tent will go best with it. Most tent wedding rentals provide two options: vinyl canopies with aluminum support frames and handcrafted translucent tents with wooden poles. The benefit of the translucent tents are the lights are reflected thru the tent, much like a clear tent rental.Layout: Let the tent rental company know about the planned layout so they can compute the tent’s coverage. The dining tables, buffet area, dance floor, and band stage will determine the tent size for the reception. Event planners usually opt for 60-inch round tables rentals to save space and maximize the square footage.

Location: Let’s say you’ve found a tent that will cover your layout. The question is, will it fit the venue? Conduct a site visit to ensure that the location can accommodate the size of the wedding tent. Another factor to consider is positioning. Look for an even ground for installation to provide level footing for the guests.

Weather: Weather conditions can be unpredictable, so it’s best to prepare for the worst. Ask your tent rental company about the emergency measures they can provide if the weather takes a turn for the worse. You might want to consider tents with sidewall enclosures as well as covered walkways to keep the extreme winds or rain out.
