5 Ideas To Make Your Wedding Tent Go From Boring To Wow!

Posted on: 16 March 2017

If you have always dreamed of an outdoor wedding, but want something with a little more elegance and class than picnic tables in a park pavilion that is exposed to the elements, renting a wedding tent is the perfect solution for your big event.

A tent doesn't have to be left stark white if you don't want it to be. Instead, view it as an empty canvas, ready for your finishing touches. Here are five ideas to transform your tent rental into the banquet room of your dreams.

Add Dimension To The Space With Draped Fabric

You can find inexpensive chiffon fabrics in a rainbow of colors for less than three dollars a yard at different outlets online. You may be even able to source some locally for even less. Fabric stores often have clearance fabrics for just a dollar a yard or priced by whatever is left on the bolt. Drape the fabric from the tent rafters, giving your space a soft, billowy and intimate feel.

Use Stringed Lights

You can hang the lights everywhere, or you can just hang them from the ceiling to create the impression of thousands of stars twinkling in the night. When it comes time to dance, your guests will be dancing under a magical celestial sky.

Hang Paper Lanterns

Paper lanterns are inexpensive, and they come in a wide array of colors. You can choose colors that match your wedding colors, or you can just go with all white lanterns for a stunning monochromatic backdrop. You can also get gold or silver metallic-colored paper lanterns to add bling to the space.

Add The Dance Floor Option To Your Tent Rental Package

Define your dance area with a rented dance floor. Event companies offer many selections, from hardwood to black-and-white checkerboard. Some companies even offer a dance floor that lights up and is synchronized to the music, creating a fantastic light show experience. You can also rent furniture, such as tables, that have bases that lights up. Pair these with seating, and you will have the perfect lounge area for your guests to relax and mingle while watching the entertainment on the dance floor.

Wrap The Tent Framework With Garland

Who wants ugly metal poles showing everywhere? Instead, wrap them with artificial greens or flowers. You could also use long fabric strips to add color and texture, randomly placing a spray of fresh flowers in here and there.
