Add some color to your tent event

If you’re planning a formal event with a classic theme, black and white are the colors of choice. But, an outdoor event is a great time to have some fun with the color palette. Celebrate a spring party in a tent with some pastels. Enjoy summer with bursts of bright color. Decorate for your fall wedding with warm earth tones. There are numerous ways to add color to a tent event.

  • Lights: Lighting can set the mood for any tent event.

  • Linens: Our linens are available in over 50 different colors plus prints.

  • Striped tents: Many tents are available in blue and white, red and white, or yellow and white

How to Decide if an Outdoor Wedding is for You

As you're planning your wedding, you may wonder if you should plan an outdoor wedding or keep it indoors.

Reasons you should plan your wedding outdoors:

  • You love the outdoors, fresh air, sunshine or stars
  • You're planning a country or rustic wedding theme
  • You have an outdoor space that is significant to you
  • You want your wedding to be relaxed or casual

Reasons to opt for in indoor venue:

  • You have a low tolerance for cool or warm weather (although tent heating and cooling are available)
  • You aren't willing to adjust plans to work with weather changes

While there are pros and cons of planning an outdoor wedding, we're sure you'll be just as happy with your event as these customers were.

I Only Need a Tent in Case of Rain

Many people planning an outdoor event or wedding really love the outdoors. So do we. If you're an outdoors loving person, maybe you prefer to have your event outdoors with no tent at all. Maybe you like the full expanse of blue sky overhead during your wedding ceremony. Maybe you have visions of soft moonlight during your reception. Maybe you want to look up at the green canopy of trees overhead.

We understand this and we have a plan in place for you. Most summer days are lovely, warm and beautiful, but you need to plan for hot days with glaring sun or the stormy days with driving rain. That's where we come in. We allow you to reserve your tent and all the other rental items to go with it. If the weather forecast is beautiful, you can cancel the tent. There are several things you should consider when you're thinking of having a tent as a backup plan:

  • Rain isn't the only type of inclement weather. Shade from the hot sun can help keep your guests more comfortable too.

  • Even if you have your wedding ceremony outdoors, it's a great idea to rent a tent for the reception to cover the food, sound system and etc.

  • If you're planning to light the tent, plan for how you want to light the space if you don't rent a tent. Not all types of lighting work as well outside a tent.

  • You may want to rearrange your seating layout if you don't rent a tent.

  • If in doubt, rent a tent. It's much better to rent a tent and not need it than cancel the tent and wish you had it.

So, how does it all work? When you reserve, we require a 25% deposit. This guarantees that your tent will be available in case of inclement weather. However, you may cancel the tent if the weather forecast looks beautiful. You may make this decision up until 9:00 AM of the day before delivery and save yourself the remaining 75%. If you cancel after 9:00 AM, you save 50% of the tent rental cost.There are two exceptions to this: linens need to be cancelled one day earlier than tents in order to get a 75% refund and permits are not refundable at all. This gives you peace of mind knowing that your guests will have shade from the hot sun or cover from the rain. Yet, you have the option to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. So, reserve today to plan an event that will be beautiful no matter what the weather.
