Wedding Tents—A New Twist on an Old Idea
Weddings have long since evolved from the traditional church edifice. Since a good majority of weddings take place during the summer months, many people opt to have their wedding ceremonies outdoors. The one possible deterrent against having an outdoor wedding the unpredictability of the weather. But renting an outdoor tent for the reception or the ceremony can be a remarkable solution to that problem. If you happen to be one of those who thinks that tents are tacky or unattractive, you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise when you see that the types of wedding tents available have not only evolved, but surpassed your imagination.
The Versatility of a Tent
Tents these days are playgrounds to the imagination. Almost any surface that you can create with a brick mortar building can be replicated with a tent. In many cases, the tents are the more viable option because you don’t have to do any significant damage to the walls as you would in a building. In addition, may solid-structured venues limit the amount of alteration you can do. For instance, many places forbid using tape or thumbtacks on site. The interior of a tent can be modified to any specification. Parquet floors can be installed to allow for musicians and dancing. Tulle can be draped from the ceiling or the side. Some tents can even be outfitted with chandeliers.
Features of Different Tents
Believe it or not, there are several types of wedding tents that exist. Although they have similar features, there is more than to tents than the standard circus pole tent with the large support beams in the center. There are frame tents that have vinyl material stretched over metal side poles. The sides can either be full vinyl, mesh or open. The vinyl can be either opaque or even clear, allowing guests to see the outdoors. Frame tents are commonly available at all rental companies. A clear span structure tent is probably the closest structure that resembles a building with actual side windows. Finally, there are tents made from the same material used for sailboats. Regardless of the type of tent you use, they are all built to withstand heavy winds, though if the winds were too high, you would probably consider postponing your date anyway.
