Things to Consider Before Renting a Tent for an Outdoor Wedding

Once you find that perfect outdoor location for your wedding, it’s time to think about the type of tent you’re going to need. A tented wedding will give you the best of both worlds. Find the natural backdrop you want for your outdoor wedding, and rent a wedding tent to create an “indoor” venue on-site. However, there’s more to a tented wedding than pitching a tent. The type of tent you choose will depend on various factors.

Factors that go into choosing a tent

When you have a tented wedding you need to think about the overall vision, as well as a few practical and decorative elements. The tent should be a part of creating your overall vision for your outdoor wedding. Before we get to decorating the inside of the wedding tent, we need to find the perfect tent, and for that, we need to talk about the weather.


In Colorado, we have four gorgeous seasons. Colorado Party Rentals have tents that can create a magical outdoor wedding in any season. However, you do need to consider the weather to ensure that you get the right tent. Even a summer wedding in Colorado can come with a few showers. If you’re getting married in a mountain setting, the weather and temperature can change dramatically from daytime to nighttime. Consider the weather when choosing a wedding tent.

Practical Accessories

Depending on the location, the climate, and the typical weather patterns for the season, our wedding specialists can help you pick the right tent. We will also make sure that you get the right accessories to protect you and your guests from the elements. Rent flooring, tent walls, and heaters, if necessary. Protect yourself against a windy day, or a rogue storm cloud. Make sure that you get a tent that is strong enough to handle any potential weather.

Decorative Accessories

Our white sailcloth tents and century pole tents are beautiful, dramatic, romantic, and durable. They are the perfect cover for an outdoor wedding. However, as beautiful as they are, they are merely a blank canvas and will need to be decorated, or embellished. You will need lighting that is romantic and intimate but also allows you to see at night. You will also need to accessorize the tent with draping and decorations to add atmosphere. Drapery will add texture and make the inside of the tent come alive.
