There's something magical about an outdoor wedding. Being surrounded by nature as you say your vows can make your day even more special. Whether you're thinking of holding your event at a neighborhood park, at a favorite garden, or on the shoreline of local lake, there are some important things to keep in mind so your day is perfect no matter what.
Many couples choose outdoor weddings and receptions because the event can be highly customizable. Additionally, the venue provides the opportunity to save money because you can rent everything you need. Taylor Rental of Manchester has professionals on staff that are trained to help you choose the right rentals to plan your outdoor wedding without a lot of stress.
1. Tents protect from all types of weather
Making sure you and your guests are comfortable is very important, and renting tents is the easy way to add comfort and protection to your outdoor wedding space. During hot summer months, tents protect from the harsh sun. If Mother Nature decides to be testy, tents can protect from rain and minor wind issues. Taylor Rental of Manchester carries Stillwater Sailcloth Tents, Pole Tents and Frame Tents.
Taylor Rental of Manchester can help provide insight into the type of weather to expect for the time of year you're getting married, and can give advice on any extras you may want to order. From simple open-air tents to options with flooring, fans or heating, you will find the right one for your dream wedding.
2. Customize with the ideal decorations
A tent provides a blank canvas, and from there you can create the atmosphere you desire. First decide on your vision. Are you thinking a casual outdoor event, or something more formal? How about a color scheme or a theme you'd like to follow?
Next, prioritize the most important elements. For example, if you want a formal, ocean-themed wedding, you might want to rent chandeliers for in the tents, along with a fountain for the centerpiece and blue linens and sashes for the tables and chairs. Almost anything you can imagine can be rented, saving you time and money.
3. Decide on the right food options
Serving food and drinks in an outdoor environment takes a bit of extra planning. Be sure to interview caterers who have experience working outdoors with tented events and are familiar with the area where you'll be getting married.
An experienced caterer can help ensure that cold foods stay cold and hot ones stay hot so that guests have an enjoyable meal. If you're planning to provide the food yourself, make sure to rent the appropriate equipment to keep food temperatures safe. Taylor Rental of Manchester carries everything you need to keep your food safe and your guests healthy.
4. Plan for a seamless experience
Unless you're planning a backyard wedding, most of your guests will not be familiar with the event space. Clearly mark any areas where guests might get confused or lost. For example, use signs to tell guests where the tents are located and provide luminaries and strings of lights on pathways to the bathrooms or parking facilities.
Being able to hear well can also be an issue outdoors. Rent a sound system for the ceremony and the reception. Taylor Rental of Manchester carries a sound system that will work for both your ceremony and reception needs.
Planning an outdoor wedding can be easy and affordable when you utilize a rental service. Remember to plan ahead and give Taylor Rental of Manchester as much notice as possible so you can get everything you want for your big day. Visit www.taylorrentalpartyplusct.com for more information.
