Your guide to choosing the right tent!

Weddings are one of the largest and
most important events if a person’s life. Because they are so important,
planning a wedding can often times be a complicated adventure. One frequently
over-looked component of a successful, stress-free wedding is the tents.
Choosing the best tent option is easy when a few things are kept in mind.


As a tent’s primary function is to
provide shelter, make sure that the construction is sound.  Tent rentals for a wedding are an
essential part of the planning process. 
With the unpredictable nature of weather, tents provide not only shelter
for your guests from heat, rain and other elements, but also help with the
overall atmosphere of your wedding. 
A majority of wedding tents are white, so that they provide a blank
canvas on which to paint a beautiful and memorable event.


There are a variety of tent types
that Action Rentals offers, below are some of the most common!

Frame Tents

The ease of use with frame tents
makes these a winner in the tent world. Easy to move and assemble, frame style
tents do not need to be staked to the ground. Their sturdy construction and
rigid frame allow easy hanging of lights and décor.

High Peak Frame Tents

When looking at the tent options ActionRentals has to offer, choosing the high peak frame tent is a great choice.
These tents have majestic peaks and will make a great addition to the grounds
of your wedding or reception lending a sense of royalty. Add some cathedral
style walls with windows and these tents can host the ceremony. They don’t need
to be staked to the ground and come in various sizes to accommodate one’s

Pole Tents

These are the most traditional type
of tents with the stakes and side poles. The preferred choice for windy days or
unpredictable weather, pole tents are versatile especially when walls are
added. If it’s nippy out or windy, the walls can roll down to shelter the
guests and maintain a comfortable temperature. Remember though, pole tents will
require extra room around their perimeter to allow for staking space.

Selecting the right size

One of the most common mistakes
people make when it comes to wedding tent rentals is renting tents that are
either too small or too large. If a tent is too small, guests will be crowded
and uncomfortable. If the weather turns wet or cools off, there won’t be enough
room to hold everyone. Too large and it feels impersonal and cold.

Logistics and Design Ideas

Using satellite tents around the
main tents will add to the luxury and convenience for the guests and the happy
couple. Here are some ideas…

  • Bride/ Bridesmaids’ tent.
  • Provide child-care with a nursery and play tent.
  • A baby tent for changing, nursing or just a quiet
    relaxed place to calm a little one.
  • A separate bar tent can provide a cozy lounge
  • An outside tent for people to get some fresh air or
    cool off from dancing.
  • Outside weddings often rely on portable restroom
    facilities, supply guests with a tented powder room and a sheltered place to
    wait their turn.
  • Have extra pop up tents handy in case of space
