Spring is in full swing and summer is fast approaching, meaning that outdoor wedding season is finally here! At Chattanooga Tent, the premier tent rental company for events in Scenic City, we want to make sure that you have as much information as possible on the essential items that transform an outdoor wedding into the event that your friends and family won’t be able to stop talking about.
Outdoor Weddings Require Certain Items
To pull off an outdoor wedding that isn’t a glorified field party, you need to have a few key items. Now, while there are plenty of items that won’t be on this list that you might include in your wedding, for the sake of brevity we have kept our list to the absolute essentials.
Essential # 1: The Tent
In other parts of the nation, the Southeast is infamous for its heat. When planning an outdoor wedding for the spring or summer, it is imperative that you take into account the fact that your guests (and you) are going to want somewhere that they can cool off, enjoy a drink, mingle, and dance. With a tent from us, you not only have a functional area that all of this can be accomplished, you have a beautiful, customizable venue that can reflect the vision that you have for your wedding day.
Essential # 2: The Lights
Unless you kick off your ceremony at 9am, chances are good that your reception ais going to last well into the evening hours. As such, you are going to need to decide on what kind of lights you want illuminating the area for your guests. Do you want a rustic feel? Are you interested in utility more than aesthetic appeal? These questions are ones that you must answer in order to make sure that your wedding is a night to remember
Essential # 3: Tables and Chairs
When planning your outdoor wedding, it is important that you take into account where people are going to sit during the reception. Across the board, people enjoy having a place to take a quick rest, enjoy a bite to eat, or engage in a riveting conversation with other wedding guests. Many factors go into the type (or types) of tables and chairs that you will need for your outdoor extravaganza, so make sure that you take a look at the tables that we offer and spend some time thinking about which chairs will go best with them and really make your space pop.
Essential # 4: The Dance Floor
A hallmark of every wedding celebration is dancing, lots of dancing. While some might consider dancing in the grass a lovely and bohemian take on the traditional dance floor, most will want a solid surface to cut a rug on. Whether you want a modern weathered oak floor or you want to keep it classic with a black and white checkered pattern floor, we have you covered.
Essential # 5: Ambience
The last essential item for your outdoor wedding is perhaps the most important. Anyone can put up a tent in a field, throw some tables and chairs under it, and light it all up like a christmas tree. However, this approach a wedding does not make. For your outdoor wedding, you need to convey emotion and create an atmosphere that truly expresses the love that you and your partner have for each other. Your wedding needs to reflect who you are as a couple. For inspiration, check out our events gallery and see the many different ways that our tents can be decked out.
