With the summer wedding season just around the corner, we thought it would be helpful to share some tips on hosting a successful outdoor soiree! Outdoor weddings are a lovely way to entertain and celebrate with guests, but they also pose potential challenges. That being said; strategic planning is important. Here are a few key things to consider before your stretch tent rental:
1. Don’t forget about the wedding staff
It’s important to keep in mind where the catering staff and waitrons will change and what restrooms they will use. If you are hosting a wedding of 200 guests, you could potentially have up to 30 additional staff who are working at the event. One easy solution is to rent some coat racks and portable lockers for the catering tent so that staff can hang or store their things away. Sky Tents offers portable toilets and additional tents to accommodate for this!
2. Keep your florals shaded
Your pretty floral arrangements shouldn’t sit in direct sunlight for more than an hour before guests arrive. A practical solution is to leave your wedding florals under the shaded stretch tent fabric and any other outdoor arrangements tucked inside the tent until 30 – 60 minutes before guests arrive
3. Supply adequate lighting for your guests throughout the evening
Eliminate tripping hazards as the afternoon light fades into the evening with standing lanterns or lighting wrapped around tent wires and poles to illuminate the outside of your stretch tent. If you plan on making an exit dash through sparklers, you may also want to use lanterns not only indicate to your guests where to stand but also to light their way to the exit after the festivities are over!
4. Keep your seating cards weighted down
If you plan on using seating cards for your tables, prevent them from flying away if the wind picks up! Use ribbon, rocks, or even tie them onto your table decor – there are lots of pretty ways to use display card and keep them in place. The beauty of a freeform tent is the open, free-flowing space, but make sure to accommodate for your décor!
5. Find the shade in summer
Even though our stretch tent material is robust and will provide adequate shelter from the elements, it’s still recommended that you try to position your ceremony and reception in a shaded area.
6. Supply refreshments
For a lovely and thoughtful gesture, have water or a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage available for your guests. Offer them pre-ceremony and post-ceremony if possible so that they can stay hydrated in the heat, and keep beverages shaded underneath your stretch tent rental.
7. Prepare the area adequately
Depending on the region you plan to host your wedding, in some areas it may be essential that you have a professional company come in and spray to keep the bugs at bay. Just be sure to do so well in advance of any tableware being set-up!
