An outdoor wedding Tent can be done with or without a tent, depending on the preferences of the soon-to-be-weds or whoever is bankrolling the wedding.
If you choose to go without a tent, there are lots of ways to make your wedding even more beautiful. And if you decide to make use of a tent for your guests, there are a few items you need to consider.
Tents are rented out plain, so everything else is just added for aesthetic effect as desired. Depending on the look you want for your wedding, you get to choose the furnishings that spruce up the tent, taking it from dull to fancy and elegant.
In addition to mainstays like flowers and beautiful cutlery, there are three major things that you need to transform your tent:
The average wedding will go on into the night or at least the early hours of the evening, so you will need some lighting as the night seeps in. Lights are required mainly on the inside of the tent, but they can also be used outside of it.
There are so many lighting options today, depending on your theme (folks want everything from bright to nightclub to warm glow). You can choose to have chandeliers, candles or even Mason jars to do the trick. The usual string-hanged lightbulb circus look is another staple that never loses its American charm.
You have to work with a creative wedding planner to make sure the placement of the lights delivers the lighting angles you’re looking for, and that the lights are easily controlled as the wedding party’s mood changes (e.g., when the newlyweds start dancing).
Unless you’re planning a standing-only garden style kind of wedding party, you will need furniture. And much like with indoor weddings, you need to have enough furniture to project your ideal aesthetic while still fitting all your guests in perfectly.
Plus, your furniture needs to match the tent’s design and to drape for a better effect. You will need to hire the right kind of service provider, i.e., one that will understand your furniture needs and meet them on time.
A tent is only a tent until it is fitted with draping, and only then does it become the classy, elegant form of temporary dwelling that’s perfect for weddings. The drapery used should match the overall desired theme for consistency.
The best draping is done with attention to detail, especially with aspects such as color and clothing material, because draping affects the final look of the whole tent and its parts.
