Add Flair To Your Outdoor Event With Add-Ons
When hosting a wedding or any event outside, you need to think about a lot of things. We’re sure you’ve checked the weather forecast religiously, but whatever it is – whether sunny or rainy, your party will still be exposed to the elements.
That’s why rental tents for weddings and events are so popular. By renting a tent you make sure your outdoor event is protected. Tents come in different shapes and sizes, ready to meet everyone’s needs, but something not many people know is that there are tent add-ons you can use to spruce everything up and make your event both more functional and eye-catching!
Here are a few ideas for your bespoke tent!
Your rental provider will probably stock a vast array of drapes that can be used in a variety of ways to elevate your event and take it to the next level.
You can use drapery to surround your whole venue, hiding the plain tent walls, or you can use them to create a focal point in the venue, accenting the newlyweds’ table and creating an amazing backdrop in the process.
Drapes can also be used to make the entrance of your venue way more attractive than it already is, making your guests feel like they’re stepping into a fairytale!
Lights are a great way to add a romantic vibe to any space, no matter if it’s a rental tent for a restaurant or your home.
Still, since rental tents are pretty plain, adding lights to them can create a truly magical feeling, especially if your event is held after sundown! Stretching string lights from one end of the ceiling to the other is one way to create an unforgettable and elegant look to wow everyone.
This is an especially great idea if you’ve rented a tent that has a regular ceiling, but it also works amazing with clear-top tents. Depending on the size of the bulbs, you can bring the starry sky within arm’s reach! Just imagine the photos!
Since rental tents for weddings are usually equipped with electricity throughout, you’re not limited in where you put your light sources. You can create cozy corners, accent your focal backdrop even further, or make that archway or draped entrance even more stunning by softly illuminating it.
To make your tent just a little bit more like a venue, you can use resin or plywood flooring, or add a carpeted area.
Carpets aren’t really ideal as they don’t really conform to the lay of the land as flooring does, but when done right, they can really add to the whole look of the space without being a tripping hazard. It’s best to talk to your rental provider and make sure the area you’re looking to have covered is suitable and can handle carpeting.
If it can’t though, the other two options are also amazing and hey, if you still want that carpet, you can lay it over the installed floorboards!
Field, backyard, and overall outdoor weddings understand natural terrain and since everyone will be dressed up, that might not be the best option, especially for dancing. Heels plus grassy land is a definite no-no! Flooring will help you make sure everyone is comfortable and safe and can have a great time!
To Sum Up
These are just a few rental tent add-on ideas you can use. There are plenty of other options to spruce up your tent and make it uniquely yours. Heating is an add-on you should definitely consider as well, and when working with a professional rental company adding it on is as easy as pie.
Talk to your rentals provider and they’ll be able to walk you through all the options you have. Remember that white isn’t your only tent color option, especially when you’re looking at a rental tent for a wedding.
Pricier, but definitely not standard and plain, tents in different colors can be made just for you or can be rented out ready to go. There’s nothing wrong with white, but if you’re looking for something more, know that you have options available!
