Tented wedding

When you organise an outdoor wedding, the weather is a constant worry. The best way you can keep your peace is by having a tent installed rain or shine your wedding carries on without disruption.

While a traditional tent is always useful, you can change the game and give your wedding an extra by choosing a Tipi Tent, and they are spacious and unique. Many configurations are possible to adapt to your needs and your event’s size; they can be placed individually or linked together to create a larger space.

Magical lighting

Outdoor weddings required illumination, and you can get creative with it and add character to your big day. For example, festoon lights or fairy lights are ideal if you choose a romantic or bohemian style.

A LED backdrop or LED light up letters are amazing options to give personality to your decoration. Tented outdoor weddings need elements that frame the entrance, and large LED light up letters will do the work. You can have your initials or an MR. & MRS.

Neon signs became popular a couple of years ago, and they continue to give a special touch to every event. Incorporate a catchy or fun phrase into a designated space where your guests can take pictures.

A LED dancefloor attracts all the looks and invites your guest to hit the dancefloor. They come in sturdy materials and a wide variety of sizes to fit your needs. If you plan to incorporate concept lighting into your Essex wedding, consider complementing it with a unique dancefloor.

Upgrade your backyard wedding.

Getting married in the comfort of your backyard or a family property can bring so much warmth to your wedding, but it can also make it feel like a casual family gathering. A couple of decoration details will transform the space and make it look like a real wedding venue.

Start with some draping and illumination, draping can help you conceal the spaces you need to take attention from, and it can also create a sense of a wedding venue. Perimetral illumination and a beautiful floral wall as a backdrop for the honour table can finish the work.

Hire unique entertainment.

When your wedding is surrounded by nature, and you have plenty of space to keep your guests entertained, a DJ is not enough. There are so many creative ways to keep the fun going after saying I do. For example, you can have some jumbo lawn games like Jenga or a croquet set.

Set a mobile bar near the games for cocktail hour. Mobile bars are fully stocked, and they are also customisable. You can name a couple of tailored drinks and treat your guests with top service and quality.

Set a tent with casino tables and let the fun begin. Not every attendant love to dance all night, and to have a couple of alternatives for those who rather drink a cocktail and play some cards is truly thoughtful. Chose from many different authentic casino tables, including roulette blackjack and wheel of fortune.

 Make nature part of your decoration.

Suppose you choose to celebrate your wedding outdoors. In that case, it possibly means that you love nature, and it is perfectly understandable since there is nothing best than saying I do in natural surroundings. If your location offers plenty of vegetation, use it in your favour and make it your backdrop.

For a tented wedding, you can decorate the interior with greenery garlands or hanging installations to create a focal point and bring the eyes up. Using live plants is a big trend too, from large trees in pots to small plants as centrepieces that your guests can take home as a favour.

If the property features an old tree or a natural arch formed by plants, take advantage of those focal points, and celebrate your ceremony right there. A couple of trees embellished with festoon lights can be the ideal setting for your reception.

Outdoor glamour.

For some reason, outdoor weddings tend to be associated with casual etiquette, but you can have an elegant wedding by adding the right decoration elements. For example, a tented wedding with a draped ceiling and sparkling chandeliers will bring a whole new mood.

Incorporate light tones and contrast them with darker colours and metallics. Imagine an ivory tablecloth with dark green velvet chairs and golden rim glassware. Abundant ivory garden roses and lush greenery for your centrepieces, all combined with the perfectly trimmed green lawn.

Create the right menu.

Most outdoor weddings take place during the summer or warmer months. When you attend a wedding on a hot day, all you want is to keep yourself hydrated. You must offer your guests refreshing beverages and food. Think about light and cool menu to go along with cold cocktails. You can add special stations like an ice cream cart or mobile cocktail bar to treat everyone.

Think about everything.

If you are getting married in a season with chilly nights, provide your guests with personalised blankets or hire some heaters to keep them warm. On the other hand, a sunny summer wedding, a parasol, sunglasses, and solar protection will be much appreciated.

Consider the possibility of renting a power source if your wedding location is secluded and has no access to electricity, and your vendors will surely need it. And portable bathrooms might also be necessary for that case.

Outdoor weddings are on-trend, and they have always been special celebrations. Although they imply considering factors like weather and electricity availability or the availability of amenities like bathrooms, the extra work is always worth it.
