Stylish tent types
- Beach or Tropical Style Tent
This tent consists of light translucent fabric draped over a wooden or bamboo frame of some sort, thou it varies in style. The purpose of this type of shelter is almost entirely aesthetics as it provides little to no protection from the elements.
- Carnival Tent
The carnival or circus tent is a pole tent dressed up in red and white striped fabric. While it is possible to rent this type of shelter in certain places, they are usually very large and hard to find.
- Moroccan and Indian Themed Tent
The Moroccan-themed tent is a marquee or pole style tent adorned with beautiful fabrics and trimmed instead of white vinyl. These types of tents are only available to rent from select rental companies and additional draping, lighting and decor are usually available to complete the look.
- Teepee Tent
Styled after Nordic Sami kata and the Native American teepee, the teepee tent offers a unique shape, cozy environment, and an attractive look to your event. They come in a variety of sizes and configurations making them suitable for both large and small weddings. Like the pole tent and sailcloth tent, their beautiful aesthetic comes at the cost of added obstacles due to the poles that support them.
Traditionally used as a portable dwelling, the yurt has recently been gaining popularity, as they are a beautiful and attractive solution for alternative wedding venues. Its structure is made up of lattice walls and a wood ribbed roof and crown, all covered in fabric. Due to their relatively small size, they are not suited to large weddings, but they are perfect for more intimate and cozy affairs.
