While June in the Northeast most often offers sunny and humid wedding days, it can also leave a chance for rain. For brides with a perfect outdoor venue booked, there is no need to worry! A tent rental from Party Plus is the perfect solution to continue enjoying the outdoors of your venue while also staying prepared for grey skies on your big day.
Set up in the Right Location
Although seating inside your tent will keep you and your guests dry, the ground may still be subject to runoff and flooding. To prevent this mishap, be sure to set up your beautiful tent in a location away from runoff, such as at the top of a slope or hill. This will greatly reduce the possibility of water running into your tent during your ceremony or reception.
Keep Tent Side Walls Ready for Rain
Depending on which tent you choose, there is a variety of stylish side walls available to save your guests from the rain while keeping the great view of your venue. Even if the timing of the rain seems distant from your ceremony or reception, it is important to keep your side walls ready, just in case. If the rain doesn’t show, your walls can be kept open throughout the day and evening.
Use Soft Lighting for a Romantic Glow in Your Tent
Just because the day may turn grey, doesn’t mean your tent has to be dim in the afternoon. Keep your tent well lit with romantic soft lighting around your space and use colorful lights to add some bright fun to your dance floor. For a more subtle glow in your tent, you may also want to consider incorporating your lights into decorations and centerpieces as well.
Help Your Guests Stay Clean and Dry
Mud and standing water can easily put a damper on your big day. To prevent this, ensure that guests will have a way of staying dry while getting to your tent. Whether you are providing rides with golf carts or umbrellas for the walk, keeping your guests dry and out of the mud is especially important to the success of your wedding day so that everyone is happy and comfortable throughout the evening.
