Let’s face it, Florida weather is fickle AF! – it’s sunny one minute and raining the next. We totally get it, you booked Cypress Grove Estate House because of the gorgeous tree-lined street and lakeside gazebo. Let’s us not forget about dancing under the market lights 😉 

All of that sounds lovely, until… RAIN shows up! 

How should you prepare and protect your investment? Reserve a tent! Tents are the only back-up plan for rain. Now, now before you roll your eyes or tell us about the historical data you pulled up on Google. Humor us a bit and read through the top 5 tips, to consider, when reserving your tent: 

 

    1. Size matters! The size of the tent should account for the total experience of the wedding. The food, décor, bar, dinner service, and maximum guest count.
    2. The add-ons. Yes, the costs can add up fast but so can the stress of not preparing for things such as side walls, lighting, flooring, dance floors, etc.
    3. Type of tent. Make sure the type of tent ordered compliments, not only your style, but the season as well. A clear span tent in summer months = green house (without air-conditioning)
    4. Logistics. Remember: you’ve only rented the facility for a day. Therefore, everything you’re planning needs to be installed and removed the same day.
    5. When to reserve. NOW. The industry is experiencing an influx in events and weddings. Due to this, dates are selling out faster than normal. By waiting until the month/week of to confirm your tent, you’ll likely experience difficulties in booking a reliable company or find yourself having to settle for whatever is left in stock.

Tents don’t have to be an eyesore; they can be a gorgeous addition to the wedding experience and often times even lend to the comfort of you and your guests {whether it’s to shield from rain and wind or keep heat in during colder months}! Oftentimes, the tent is designed as the main attraction! 

With a little draping here and there, some floral, and ambiance lighting, you can make a tent look like it was part of the plan from the get-go instead of a last minute back-up option.
