1. Because choosing a rental tent takes just as much consideration as choosing a venue.
It is vital to choose a wedding tent wisely. Remember, it is your principal backdrop: it will feature prominently in your wedding photos and deserves just as much thought as you would give to assessing an indoor venue. Since the first one was designed and made by founder Steve Sperry 20 years ago, Sperry Tents were an immediate game changer in the event industry, setting a whole new bar for rental tent elegance. If you want guests to ooh and ahh over your tent, then give us a call!
2. Because a tented wedding is the ultimate blank slate.
When you choose an outdoor wedding under a Sperry Tent, you don’t have to worry about that ugly ballroom rug. Or those gold drapes on Palladian windows. Or those random hotel guests who aren’t part of your reception. A tented reception allows you to get married in your own backyard, at your family’s summer house, or on the grounds of your favorite golf club, museum, or historic estate. If you can dream it, we can tent it.
3. Because you can get creative with different tented “destinations.”
Thanks to our wide range of sizes, from small rounds to large squares and ovals – all equally elegant, with matching ivory sailcloth – there are many creative ways to employ Sperry Tents for your big day. Here are just a few ideas: a kids’ tent filled with art supplies, candy treats, and bean bags; a cocktail tent with illuminated marquee letters, high-top tables, and a live jazz trio; a welcome tent with an escort card display, beer on ice, and signature cocktails on tap; a cigar-rolling tent, with bonus whiskey tasting station. So much possibility!
4. Because connecting with the great outdoors is your favorite activity.
Whether you and your betrothed are boaters, skiers, hikers, or even bird watchers, it makes sense to honor your connection to nature with an outdoor wedding. A reception under a Sperry Tent offers the best of both worlds: protection from the elements but also proximity to the surrounding landscape. And don’t forget to encourage guests to move beyond the confines of a tent with games (croquet, anyone?), lawn furniture (Adirondack chairs are comfy), boat cruises, and golf cart rides. The more guests interact with the outdoor setting, the more memorable your big day will be.
5. Because pulling off a seamless outdoor wedding takes experience.
Planning an outdoor wedding involves a lot of moving parts, and is not unlike building a venue from scratch one day and then taking it down the next. You’ll need an experienced tent professional on your side through the whole process, from the initial site check to the final takedown. Together, we can plan for: rain, power usage for the tent and other vendors, lighting choices inside the tent and out, catering facilities, party rental deliveries, and extreme temperatures. And if your wedding date falls in a popular month for your area, contact us early to ensure all your desired equipment is reserved well in advance.
If you’re recently engaged, congratulations! We look forward to making your wedding a momentous occasion. Please contact us for a complimentary quote or site check.
