Planning a wedding is exciting, but it can also be stressful as you work to make sure that your special day is perfect and your guests have a great time. Renting a tent for your wedding is an easy way to make the planning process easier. A tent is an excellent solution for any outdoor wedding for a variety of reasons.

You Don’t Have to Decide Between an Indoor and Outdoor Wedding

There are pros and cons to both indoor and outdoor weddings. If you can’t decide between the two, renting a tent for an outdoor wedding can help you to get the best of both options. You can retain all of the flexibility and cost savings of an outdoor wedding while offering the comfort of an indoor wedding when you rent a tent.

You Can Get Married Outdoors Year-Round

Many people think that an outdoor wedding can only be held during the summer or in nice weather. In reality, however, you can also have an outdoor wedding in winter. This is because tent rentals can come with sides to enclose the tent and heating or fans can be used as needed to ensure a comfortable temperature.

A Tent Protects Guests from the Weather

If any part of your wedding, whether it’s the ceremony itself or the reception or both, you may have concerns about the weather cooperating. A tent can alleviate that stress because it can protect you and your guests from inclement weather. If it’s raining, everyone can stay dry underneath the tent. If it’s particularly hot and sunny, the tent can equally protect guests from getting too hot and risking heat stroke or sunburn.

You Can Have an Outdoor Wedding at Night

With an outdoor wedding, you might think that you’re limited only to daylight hours. By renting a tent, you can have your wedding outdoors at whatever time works best for you. If an evening reception is what you’ve always dreamed of, then the lighting options with your tent can illuminate your space and allow you to continue partying for as long as you’d like.

A Tent Can Reduce Stress

With an outdoor wedding, the weather is a source of stress because it’s a major unknown that could have a major impact on your wedding. 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.

You Can Invite More People

No one wants to exclude family or friends from their wedding due to occupant limitations. However, indoor venues have a strict limit on the number of people who can be in the room or building at any given time. With an outdoor wedding, however, the number of guests is much more flexible. You can rent different sized tents or multiple tents as needed so that you can accommodate everyone that you want to invite to your wedding.

A Tent Can Help Save Money

Weddings are expensive. In 2021, the average price of a wedding, including the rings, was $34,000. One of the most expensive parts of a wedding is the venue. You can save quite a bit of money by having an outdoor wedding and reception and renting a tent instead of booking an indoor venue.

You Can Decorate a Tent However You Want

The owner of an indoor venue may have restrictions on the types of decorations you can use. In some cases, an indoor venue may already be decorated, which may not be to your taste. With an outdoor venue, however, you have much more freedom to decorate however you’d like. The tent is a blank slate, with no pre-existing decorations that you’ll have to try to match. Instead, you have the complete freedom to choose how to decorate for your wedding.

A Tent Can Go Anywhere

There’s a lot more flexibility with where you can set up a tent within the available outdoor space. With an indoor venue, the building is fixed in one location, but your tent could be set up in the best possible location to maximize convenience as well as views.

A Tent Can Protect Guests from Insects

One hazard of having an outdoor wedding is proximity to insects. Mosquitos, flies, and other bugs could disrupt your wedding and make your guests uncomfortable. A tent can help to protect your guests from these unwanted intruders, however, by creating an enclosed space with walls that function as a barrier against bugs.
