In regards to renting a tent for your wedding, there are a few things to consider:

  1. Make sure that the grounds are substantial enough to hold the tent.
  2. Tents can be quite expensive. When requesting a size, it should be big enough to house tables, chairs, dance floor, and all the other things you'd find in a reception, so keep that in mind.
  3. Sometimes you can get a deal on the tent rental but be charged a fortune in delivery and set up costs.
  4. There are many different styles of tents, such as the clear ones, that can increase the price. If you're on a very tight budget, the basic white one may be best.
  5. Tents don't come with lighting so if your event is in the evening, you'll also need to rent or purchase those that will be functional in the tent.
  6. Since we are headed into the warmer months, you can probably get away with a heating source. With that being said, you'll have to make sure the tent will be sufficient if it rains.
  7. Speaking of the heat, you'll want to make sure that the cake you choose will be covered in fondant as buttercream will soften or melt in the heat.
