Heat is definately a concern at summer or early fall outdoor weddings. To offset potential heatstroke, most couples like to provide some kind of shelter for guests – like a canopy. But the rental fees for outdoor tents or canopies can be extremely expensive! So, why not gather up a few materials from your local hardware store and make your own? Not only will you save money but you'll also have these great shelters for future outdoor parties. *These lovely canopies would also make chic and rustic chuppahs.
